  1. If you are using a Mac ‘MiroVideoConverter’ is great for changing formats for playing videos on other devices, as well as iDevices. It’s on the Mac app store and it only cost me a few dollars if I remember rightly. ‘Video Trim’ is another cheap app on the Mac app store for trimming videos too. I use these two regularly and they haven’t let me down yet.
