Ever tried to move your MOV movies to Samsung Galaxy S5? In fact, it is easy, fast and worth the effort. This tutorial explains you how to put and play MOV on Galaxy phones.
I’ve switched from iPhone 4S to Galaxy S5 for several months. In fact, I mostly used the S5 as a portable player on the move, and I can say without reservation that it absolutely rocks for watching movies. I have transferred all of my iPhone pics and videos (they are obviously in apples quicktime format, .MOV) to the Micro SD card that I have in my S5 but the videos will not play. Luckily, I’ve figured out the best way to play MOV files on Galaxy S5. If you are in such issue, read on to get the quick solution.
The workaround requires you to convert MOV to Galaxy S5 supported MP4 since the default and downloaded player on Galaxy S5 cannot find a suitable decoder for the QuickTime MOV file. Actually, it’s not as difficult as you imagine. What you need is a just a common video converter like Brorsoft Video Converter. The program is very ease to use and can produce excellent results for the Galaxy S5 (Galaxy S4, S3 also included). Conversion speed seems fine and the converted videos look decent on S5 as original.
Below I’d like to share the full guide about playing MOV video on Galaxy S5 with you. Hope it will give you a big help.
Step 1: Go to download and install Brorsoft Video Converter, then launch it. Afterwards, directly drag and drop MOV files to the program. Or you can tap the “Add” button to import files. Batch conversion is available, so you can add several files at one time.
Step 2: Set output video file format for your device. Here you can go to Format > Samsung and choose Samsung Galaxy S III Video (*.mp4) as the export format. The output videos could fit Samsung Galaxy S5 with excellent quality. Of course, you can select other optimized preset for your Samsung Galaxy gadget.
Step 3: Tap the “Settings” icon and you can adjust codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel in the interface according to your needs and optimize the output file quality. In usual, 1280*720 video size, 1000~2000 video bitrate is proper. You’d better keep a good balance of the video size and quality.
Step 4: Hit the big Convert bar to start the MOV to Galaxy S5 conversion.
After a while, you will get the output MP4 files ready to be imported and played on Galaxy S5.
