MOD is not a video format actually, but a video container that is encoded with MPEG-2 video and AC-3 audio. MOD container is usually used by some older camcorder models, such as JVC HDD evario, Panasonic SDR-H100 and Canon FS200. Now .MOD format recorded video camcorders have gradually replaced by AVCHD and XDCAM camcorders. Since 2011, I have not seen any new model of camcorders that support .MOD as recorded video by default.
Correspondingly, many camcorder produce companies ceased to update mod related software, which bring much troubel for old mod camcorder users while edting them. To meet the purpose of those MOD camcorder owner's certain needs, we developed this Mod converter to help users free convert and edit their source .mod format.
The MOD converter can assist camcorder users to convert .MOD video format to other general video formats, like HD MOV, AVI, MPG, MP4 and so on, which enable users edit the source video under professional video editing softwares (Final cut Pro, Prores, Cyberlink Powerdirector, Adobe Premiere Pro, iMovie, Quicktime, etc).
Users can directly rename the file extension name of .MOD to .MPG without the using of a converting software, but audio may miss while directly rename mod to mpg, as .Mod is a video container, but .MPG is a video format, both are essentially different .
For the convenience of quick lookup, we list all models of camcorders which store video footage as MOD on the right column of our Homepage.
