Q: Converting iPhone .mov to .mp4
So I have a .mov iPhone video (1080p 30fps). Client wants mp4. Is there a quality benefit to using Handbrake instead of a simple Export-to-mp4 from QuickTime Player 7? If so, is Handbrake the best (resolution quality) conversion solution? (I heard it described on a forum as lossless.) Thanks.

Renaming to .mp4 works in this case, because modern QuickTime .MOV files and .MP4 files conform to the exact same specifications. For most intents and purposes, they are the same.
