How to convert video to WebM?


You may need to encode your existing videos to the WebM format if you want to embed them directly into a webpage code using the HTML5 markup supported by most browsers. This makes it possible to watch WebM video right in the browser that supports HTML5 without the necessity to install additional codecs or plug-ins. Or you may just want to prepare your videos for Internet streaming and then upload them to YouTube. Using Soft4Boost Video Converter you can perform the conversion to the WebM format in a few clicks.
