Tips on Converting MOD Files with MOD Converter for Mac

By Wang Alice Subscribe to RSS | February 20th 2012 | Views:

There are a number of digital camcorders that use the MOD video format for video recording. MOD is the informal name for the video recorder format on tapeless camcorders. You may have trouble if you try to use this format on your Mac or Mac based applications like iMovie or Final Cut Pro and devices like iPhone or iPod, just like I did a couple of days back.

I had this project for which I needed to capture a number of video shots and then edit them to make a small five minute documentary. I used a Panasonic video camcorder which uses this MOD format. I took a lot of shots and finally I was convinced that I have enough to make a documentary out of them. So, I attached the camcorder with my Mac to extract the captured videos to my Mac so that I can play them and edit them with Final Cut Pro.

However, after I extracted the video, which were in MOD format, I found out that things are not as smooth as I thought it would be. For example, when I tried to play them using QuickTime media player, they were not playing at all. It turned out that the MOD format is unsupported in QuickTime media player. I was again stuck when I tried to edit them on Final Cut Pro as Final Cut Pro does not support this format too.

Frustrated, I tried to find a solution online. There seemed to be a lot of posts about this issue and all were pointing to one thing. That is to find a MOD Converter for Mac. While searching for a good converter it seemed that there are a lot issues attached to it. For example, there are video converters that can ruin the video quality. They can make the video darker. They can make the video blurry, grainy, blocky, hazy, striped etc. They can lower the quality all together. I did not want that. The video quality has to stay the same.

Again, there are other issues like some video converters produce corrupt files. The extension of the produced file is the same as the output format but the video do not play. Some video converters ruin the audio and video synchronization which mean either the audio or the video runs first than the other. All these meant that I had to pick out the best that were devoid of those issues. I did quite a few trial and errors and none of them turned out to be useful. There were lacking.

During this trial and error, I was satisfied by one video converter that did not show any of those issues. The video quality was the same as before the conversion, there were no corrupt files and there were no audio video out of sync issues either. The converter was Video Converter for Mac by iSkysoft and I still use this whenever I have problems with any of my videos.

A video converter is a great tool to have by your side if you are working with videos. With the right video converter like Video Converter for Mac by iSkysoft, you can have full control over your videos and you can convert them for any applications or devices.
