You can convert any number of videos as there are no limitations as to how many files you can convert.
To convert your video files, you have two options.

After you have selected the format that you want to convert the video in to, click on convert. First, MaxConverter will have to upload the video to its servers.
Once the file has been uploaded, it will then start converting the video. The upload time will depend on your internet connection while the converting process is done by MaxConverter.

A 42MB MP4 file took MaxConverter less than 25 seconds to convert. I converted the file to AVI format and the video size was reduced from 40MB to 4.2MB. I also converted a 147MB MP4 file on my Android device and it took around 1.5 minutes to convert the video to a 12MB MOV file. The file compression is really good and has no quality loss. The mobile website is well optimized and is as easy to use as the desktop version.
While you can upload and convert n number of files, the max video file size limit is 150MB for now.
MaxConverter also acts as an MP4 to MP3 converter and allows you to convert a video file to an audio file. Say you have a video with you and you just want to listen to the audio, like for example a music video or a video podcast. For times like these, you can just upload your video file to MaxConverter and convert the file to any audio format that you wish for. Then you can simply play the audio track through a music player. MaxConverter can convert your video file to various formats such as MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, M4A, FLAC, OGG, and AIFF. The steps to convert a video file to an audio file is exactly the same as before.
