How to Increase MP4 Video Conversion Speed?
MP4 seems be the most compatible video format. You can play MP4 on TV, Xbox One S, PS4 Pro, iPhone 7, Samsung Galaxy S7, etc. When people can’t play certain video files on some devices due to the video format, converting the video to MP4 seems can handle everything, especially H.264 MP4 with AAC audio. Of course, sometimes, you also can’t play MP4 files which pushes you to convert MP4 to other video formats. However, no one want to cost too much time on MP4 conversion. So the way to increase MP4 video conversion speed is necessary.
To speed up MP4 video conversion, you need to know what factory can affect the video conversion speed. Normally, the MP4 video conversion speed mainly depends on two aspects: one is your computer hardware specs, the other is the source video file and its output settings. Therefore, by better making good use of your computer hardware and customizing output format settings, you can greatly accelerate your MP4 video conversion speed. Now, after you learned what affects the video coversion speed, we can increase the MP4 video transcoding speed from the each aspect.
Tip 1: Use NVIDIA CUDA Accelerate MP4 Video Conversion Speed
A Video Converter using CPU and GPU acceleration technology can speedup video conversion process. Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate takes full advantage of the NVIDIA CUDA technology and AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) to largely accelerate MP4 video encoding speed. The GPU acceleration saves users time when encoding video files to H.264 codec and H.265 codec. With a PC running on a CUDA-enabled Graphics card, the conversion speed of Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate is about 30X faster than before. Meanwhile, more CPU resources are spared for other applications, that is to say, your computer will run much smoother and faster than ever before when you using Pavtube Video Converter to do format conversion. To read here to figure out if your computer has a CUDA-enabled GPU.
Simply click “File” > “Add Video/Audio” to load your movies. Then Choose “H.265 MP4 Video” or "H.264 HD MP4" in “Format” drop-down list. Now, move your cursor to “Tools” button on the top of the main interface to choose “Options”. Then you can enable GPU Encode Acceleration.
Tip 2: Use More CPU Core to Convert to/from MP4 Files
Video manipulation relies heavily on CPU. A high-performance processor can help you convert to/from MP4 video faster. For example Intel Core 2 can process 4 data streams at a time and i7 can handle up to 8. In Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate "Conversion Settings", you can use more CPU to computer graphics. You can set the value of CPU Core Number as all or customize core number to process MP4 video conversion.
Tip 3: Change MP4 Video Settings
In general, a higher bitrate will accommodate higher image quality and larger video size in the video output, which affects video conversion speed. In addition, setting other parameters lower such as lower resolution, lower frame rate, etc also can shorten video conversion time although it will reduce video quality. If you don’t have high reqirement on image quality, you could try this way to increase video conversion speed.
What’s more, keeping the same video codec when converting video formats also can reduce video conversion time. For example, when you can convert H.264 MP4 to MKV, you can get higher video conversion speed when keeping H.264 codec. On the contrary, if you transcode H.264 MKV to H.265 MP4, the conversion speed will be slow.
Tip 4: Batch Convert Video Files to/from MP4
Theoretically speaking, this way doesn’t increase MP4 video conversion speed but it does shorten the whole video conversion time. When you have a great number of videos, you can apply Batch Conversion Mode of Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate. You can choose multiple video files to start the video conversion process. And you can check "Shut Down Computer After Conversion" so that you don’t need to wait the ending before the computer. The flaw is that you only can batch convert multiple videos to one format when you using Batch Conversion feature.
When you have a computer geared with CUDA-enabled graphic cards and you can accept H.264 or H.265 codec, encoding MP4 video with NVIDIA CUDA is the best way to increase MP4 video conversion speed. If your computer is low-end, you can try other 3 methods to shorten mp4 video conversion time.
