MP4 to M4A

Convert MP4 to M4A and other video formats to MP4 online, free


MP4 is one of the most compatible video file formats. You can upload MP4 files to YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites. You can also play MP4 files with Windows Media Player, VLC, QuickTime, iPhone, iPad, Android, and almost all media players. MP4 files are popular because they can be viewed almost anywhere, and even with high-quality video, the file sizes remain relatively small, making them easy to share. MP4 is short for 'MPEG4', and is a format that normally contains video and audio, but can also be used to store images and subtitles.


Audio files with the M4A extension are mostly used for storing songs purchased from the iTunes Store. M4A files are widely accepted by Apple, Android and Windows devices. Most media players on all devices can play M4A files. This makes them a popular format for storing songs on mobile devices. Although M4A and MP4 files are similar, they are not the same. They both use the MPEG4 codec, but M4A files can only store audio content. What’s more, M4A files are compressed using the ‘AAC’ lossy, which gives them a smaller file size than MP4.
