Why does it seem to be so difficult to simply change a video's container?
For example, when I download ".avi" & ".mkv" video's from the internet & want to watch them on my Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Apple TV), I need them to be ".mp4" instead.
I don't want to spend the time to go through the whole "conversion/transcoding" process with apps like Handbrake when it seems you can simply change their containers out with apps like Mkv2Mp4 or the old Video Container Switcher apps in a fraction of the time.
Problem is, when I use those container changing utilities, various problems arise, like...
- having mp4's with audio out of sync, or
- having mp4's with no audio at all, or
- having mp4's with very jittery video.
I love the speed of these container changing apps but why don't the video's play exactly the same since they're not actually converting the codecs & such?
