Then take the URL of the video and use a popular converter website like catchvideo.net or clipconverter.cc, according to selfgrowth.com. Then paste the URL of the video into the converter box on the media converter website. Once there, select a new format for the video.
Once the video is converted, it can be downloaded and saved. MP4 is a common format for videos and can be used on mobile devices like smartphones and iPods, claims wikihow.com. Clipconverter is a free online media conversion tool, that can convert media to many common formats. Clipconverter's conversion speed is faster than other online converter sites, says cisdem.com.
