What is the MP4 format?

Before telling you how to convert YouTube videos to MP4, it might be helpful for you to know what MP4 is.

MPEG-4 Part 14, commonly known by its file extension MP4, is a digital format to store audio and video. It can also contain still images and subtitles. Developed by the International Organization for Standardization, MP4 was released in 2001, and it's one of the most used video formats worldwide. This format also is well suited for online streaming.

But the key to its success is that it's a compressed format. That means that the MP4 files are smaller than other video formats. And this doesn't affect the quality of the content noticeably. This makes MP4 the ideal video format to store dozens of multimedia files in your device without worrying about storage space.


What is an Online YouTube to MP4 Converter?

As the name would suggest, an online YouTube to MP4 converter is a web-based tool to convert videos from YouTube to MP4 files to download them afterward.

That means that all the conversion processes are done on the Internet instead of your device. In other words, you don't need to install a new program to complete the conversions and downloads.

Also, the fact that it is a cloud-based platform guarantees fast conversions and downloads. And the reason to use CoConvert and others is that online converters and downloaders are the only way to download YouTube videos since the website doesn't give you any way to do that.

In our case, CoConvert is not only fast, versatile, and user-friendly. It's also free-download videos with no limits at no charge here.
