Why convert .XAVC-S file to .MP4 file

XVAC-S is a consumer-grade subset format for the XVAC codec and was created by Sony. In Sony's own words, "XVAC brings to life the 'Beyond HD' vision, and has been designed to serve the quality requirements of feature films, HDTV and commercials beyond 1080p." XVAC-S features compatibility with higher frame rates as well as 4K playback. XVAC-s also benefits from a higher maximum data rate than its main competitors. When we look at MP4, it's a widely used format that's compatible with most media players, platforms, and devices on all operating systems. So why should you convert an XVAC-S to MP4? Since the XVAC-S codec, by default, stores in an MP4 container format to enable editing and viewing, there is no need to convert an XVAC-S to MP4 as there will be no notable improvements in the performance of video editing, playback, or its compatibility.
