Step by Step Guide to Convert MLV to MP4, MOV, AVI on Mac and Windows


My Canon camera recorded some MLV RAW videos, but I do not know how to play them on my iPhone. Any suggestion?

I want to transfer the Magic Lantern recorded RAW videos to my computer. What is the best video format do I need to convert to for archive or publish to my blog?

Nowadays many users like to install Magic Lantern to their Canon DSLR cameras to increase more features, among which recording RAW videos to your CF/SD card is included. But these MLV RAW videos are uncompressed and so will take much CF/SD card space, so many users plan to transfer these MLV RAW videos to their hard drive or other devices for archive or for playback. But these MLV RAW videos also take much hard drive space and worse still, are not compatible with most popular used devices, media player or video editing applications. To make MLV RAW videos smaller in size for archive or more playable, most of users will choose to convert the MLV RAW videos to the widely accepted MP4, AVI, MOV, MPEG, ProRes, H.264, etc, for which a professional MLV converter is needed.
