Why convert video to MP3
We all have different reasons to convert video to MP3. Be it any, here are the 3 undeniable benefits of converting videos to MP3 files:
- High portability and minimum storage requirements

High portability and minimum storage requirements
MP3 files are smaller and take up less storage space than video files. This allows you to carry more audio content on a portable device like your phone or MP3 player.
Easy sharing and device compatibility
MP3 is a universally supported file format. They are easier to organize, edit, and preserve. Plus, it requires less bandwidth than streaming video files. This makes sharing podcasts, music, speeches, etc. easier.
For visually impaired users, converting video to audio allows them to access the audio content from videos without the visuals.
