How to Convert Videos to Fit Your Android Phone Screen Size

Android is fast becoming our go to hub for entertainment. Our music library, TV shows and even movies are starting to be housed on our Android devices. So more and more people want to convert videos for Android screen size.

Sometimes all you need to do is copy the content to your android device and that’s it. Android will take care of the rest almost every time. For example if you have your wedding video on a CD, you can simply rip the content and put it on your smartphone. Android has truly made things easier for the common user.

However sometimes you have really large resolution movies and a relatively lighter smartphone. For example why would you watch a 4K movie on a 1080p screen. That will not only take a toll on the Android device but also hog a lot of space. Thankfully we can convert videos for Android screen size with ease too. This article will be your guide in getting videos from your PC to your smartphone , in a well optimized manner.

Method 1: Just Copy It

With Android there is always an easy way to do things. If you are here just because you are worried that your low end smartphone won’t be able to play full HD videos, don’t be. The thing is almost every slightly modern Android device can do that. Follow the method below to make sure your device is not a cheap Chinese knock off phone with faked specs.

Step 1:

Download any of the best video players for Android. I recommend my personal favorite MX Player. It is one of the best players out there which supports almost every main stream format there is.

Step 2:

Now simply connect your smartphone to your PC and copy some videos on your Android device.

Step 7:

Rejoice because you don’t have to convert every video you want to watch. This is Android after all.

Method 2: Get A Converter

If for some reason you are not satisfied with the first method, there is a slightly harder alternative. This is not hard because the steps are difficult to follow, it’s hard because converting videos require a fast PC as well as ample time. On my Core i7 Quad Core processor and 8 GB of RAM it took almost 13 minutes to convert a 30 minute video.

Step 1:

This will involve getting a small software downloaded on your Windows or Mac based PC. I recommend Any Video Converter because it has served me extremely well in my PSP movie watching days. Plus the converter is essentially free and comes with some great presets.

Step 4:

After you have gotten familiarized by the interface, check if your device is listed in the drop down menu. If it isn’t there is no need to worry, select the closest one to your device (resolution wise) and you will be fine. Advanced users can set-up their own screen resolutions.

      This article corresponds to resolution. However, as size and pixels are proportionality. You can actually reduce the size of the file by decreasing the pixel count or resolution.
