As we know, WebM is a video format that is developed and sponsored by Google. WebM is widely used in YouTube. Bloggers and YouYube users shall upload or download the videos in WebM format. Unlike WebM, MP4 is considered as a most commonly used video format which can be supported by mostly video players. Sometimes, when you occasionally find or download a video from the website, the video file is in WebM format which is not supported by iPhone. Thus, you need to convert WebM to MP4.

As an open source tool, VLC has some drawbacks from time to time. Users from VideoLAN Forums leaving note that after the conversion in VLC, there is no sound playing.

I tried to covert it in VLC from WebM to MP4 all I get is the video no sound. I left the settings the way they were and even checked the box one time to use the settings that came with the video no go.

The file plays ok on it's own, when I try to convert it so I can play in in the car it's a no go. Only video plays after I convert it no sound.
