And if you’re thinking a decked-out Mac Pro or other powerhouse computer might be the answer, you’re talking prices that rival down payments on a car or even a house. The best (and most affordable) answer might be to get better video processing software.

iPhones are great for a lot of things. At the top of the list is creating and enjoying high-quality video. But unfortunately there are many potential snags.
Maybe you’re trying to watch a MKV, AAC or FLV video that creates a format conflict. Or you’ve bounced HEVC video through an old version of QuickTime, Final Cut Pro, iMovie or some other editing software that makes it incompatible. If you’re trying to play an iPhone-shot video at 4K and 60 frames per second, it might not vibe well with certain video players. If you shot your video on a drone or GoPro, that can also create a host of compatibility problems.
The higher the quality of video gets, the harder it is to make the files work on the variety of devices we use. That’s because all kinds of new formats, codecs and other standards create compatibility issues. Even the sharpest 4K footage ever won’t look its best on your iPhone if it’s not in the right format.
Shooting great video on an iPhone is easy. But if you want to edit or work with video at a deeper level for watching or uploading without any limitations, you’re going to need special software. Usually, that means getting an expensive application for video editing and conversion.
A new app from Digiarty Software called VideoProc offers an easier, more affordable way to process video. Plus, you can win a copy of the Mac app in our sweepstakes — and maybe even take home a free iPhone XS and AirPods to enjoy your sparkly new video!
