Is it possible to convert MOV files to MP4 directly in DropBox ?

Re: Convert mov to mp4

Hi Luciano, currently it isn’t possible to directly convert videos from one format to another on the Dropbox site.
However, there might be some third party apps or services that can perform this for you.
Another thing to consider would be using a different video player for your Android device, since the default one might not work as well as others.
Hope this info helps!
