How to Convert Videos to Different Resolutions with Movavi Video Converter

Every video is encoded to a particular size that is known as its resolution and is normally measured in pixels. For example, Full HD videos have a resolution of 1080p which means that they are 1920×1080 pixels. Of course different displays also have different resolutions – and sometimes you may want to change the resolution of your video to match your display.


The reason why matching the resolution of a video with your display is useful is because it will optimize the video to a degree. If you were playing a 1080p Full HD video on a display with only 720p resolution (i.e. 1080×720) then it wouldn’t take advantage of the video’s higher resolution. Instead you could switch the video to a 720p resolution and achieve the same result.

Of course most people don’t know the first thing about converting the resolution of videos – and odds are you fall in that boat too. Fortunately with Movavi Video Converter you will just need to perform the following steps:

  1. Click on the ‘Add Media’ button in the upper left corner and select ‘Add Video’ then choose the video that you want to convert.
  2. Open the ‘Video’ tab and choose the format you want to use and then either pick one of the predefined resolutions available or click on the ‘cogwheel’ icon to specify a custom resolution.
  3. Click ‘Convert’ to convert your video to its new resolution.
