How to convert MKV/AVI/VOB/MPG to Samsung Galaxy S6 supported format
Step 1: Add Video Files
Install and run the Galaxy S6 Video Converter to your PC, click “Add Video” or “Add from folder” to import your source .vob, .mpg, .avi, .mkv videos. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.
Step 2: Select Output Format
Click drop down menu of Format; here you can select “Samsung > Samsung Galaxy S III Video (*.mp4)” as the output format, which is a format specially designed for Galaxy S3 but also works for the S6 perfectly.
Tip: Set output video quality (Optional)
If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
Step 3. Start converting videos to Galaxy S6
In the end, go back to the main interface and click the “Convert” button to start converting AVI, VOB, MPG, MKV for playing on Galaxy S6. Once the process completes, just click “Open” to find the Galaxy S6 playable MP4 videos and transfer them to your Galaxy S6 with ease.
