How can I convert an NX1 HEVC video to H.264?
“Hey all, I have a Samsung NX1 camera. It records videos in H.265 format up to 4K. I would like to know the easiest way to convert an NX1 HEVC video to H.264 in a format that my friends and family can view with simple programs like Windows Media Player, or on a Mac with QuickTime. I prefer the video to still be sharp like the original file or be in 1080p quality. Thanks in advance for any help.”
