"Does anyone know how to convert a .wav audio file to a .mp4 audio file? And if possible, to compress the .mp4? I've been told that a .mp4 will play on any format. Is this true?"
Have you ever tried to convert a WAV file to MP4 files? If so, you will also be in such a puzzle. WAV is a kind of audio file used for storing sound tracks with lossless quality. It is created and developed by IBM and Microsoft. In most case WAV files are used on Windows platform. It is often being supported by Windows Media Players and other programs. However, as we know that MP4 is a kind of multimedia format. It is a container that can store various data including video, audio and subtitle, etc. It is the most popular container type for sharing media on almost all devices. So it is common to see that lots of people want to convert other video or audio formats to MP4. Hence, I would like to share two solutions with you about how to convert WAV to MP4 effectively.

Therefore, more and more people prefer to choose third-party software, which is much more convenient as it does not require internet access, which means video conversion process can be processed offline. Since there are so many third-party converter programs, here I recommend Leawo Video Converter.

Download and install the program to get ready for the conversion process from WAV to MP4. There are two versions of Leawo Video Converter: Window version and Mac version. You can select the versions as needed. Here I take the Windows version as an example.
