Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
There might be times when we can't play a certain video because the media player does not support the frame rate. What should we do if we want to watch it? There are two options that can solve this problem. One is find a compatible player and the other is change the frame rate of our video. If you want to be practical, you will choose the second option. Obviously, it's easier to find a video editor that can convert frame rate than a media player that suits a certain fps. So, here is an example of video editor that you can use and steps on how to utilize it:
Step 1: The first thing you need to do is install Apowersoft Video Editor best video editing software on your computer. Launch the program and select the aspect ratio of your file.
Step 2: Click the "Import" button and then add the file you want to edit. You may also drag it to the main interface of the program. Once your file has been added, drag and drop it to your timeline.
Step 3: Go to "File" and select "Export" or click the export icon as shown on the picture below.
When a new pop up appear, click the gear icon on the Output settings.
Step 4: Under "Video" section, click on "Frame rate" and select the fps that will suit your media player. Hit the Ok button and export your file.
You can also use these two alternative tools.
In the event that you have access to internet, you can use this free online tool as your video frame rate converter. Here's how:
Step 1: Visit the website of VideoGrabber and then select "Convert Video". Next, click on "Select files to convert". When you're prompted to download a launcher, install it on your computer. This does not affect your computer anyway.
Step 2: Select the file you want to edit. On the below-menu, click on "Settings".
Step 3: On the "Video" tab, drop down frame rate and select the right fps for your file. Press "Ok" button and export your file.
What's good on this app is that you can change the fps of multiple videos at once.
Another useful application that is lurking on your Windows PC is VLC. If you are using this one as your media player, you can directly convert your frame rate.
Step 1: Go to "Media" > "Convert/Save". Once a pop up box appears, click "Add" to insert the file you want to edit.
Step 2: Hit the "Convert/Save" button and choose "Convert" to open the convert menu. Click the icon with screwdriver beside "Profile" to open up the codecs tab.
Step 3: Proceed to "Video codec" and set the frame rate to your preference.
Step 4: Select the folder location of your file by clicking on "Browse" and then hit "Start".
