This is the first of a series of articles about audio and video file conversions. Why conversions? An important part of how Pipe works behind the scenes has to deal with converting video files from different formats to .mp4.

In this blog series we are going to cover several different tools, from online ones to server-based, to desktop apps and we’ll guide you step by step on what to do.
