There are many interesting videos on the Internet. Sometimes videos downloaded from video sites do not play, and sometimes when you put a video from your computer on your phone, it does not play well on your device. There are also times when you want a particular file format, such as MP4 or MP3. In such cases, you need video conversion software.
