How to turn a video to MOV for YouTube

Whether you’re an avid vlogger or just someone looking to edit a clip into a file that can be posted on YouTube, converting it to MOV is easier than you can imagine.

Our tool is online and allows you not only to convert a video to one of the 20 formats, but also to cut it before saving. It works in any browser, be it Chrome, Edge or Safari meaning you don’t need to install any dodgy software onto your device.

It’s also super easy to use and doesn’t require any special video editing skills. The best thing, though, is that it’s free for files of 500 MB and less.
