Part 2. A Program for Editing and Playing Xiaomi YI 4K videos

Xiaomi YI records 4K video in H.264 MP4 format. Since H.264 is a delivery codec rather than editing code, you need to transcode H.264 footage from Xiaomi YI to an editable format for importing to non-linear editors directly. And due to the codec incompatibility and other file size/resolution limitation, you need to downscale Xiaomi YI 4K to 1080P which would be the best settings. It will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing, playing or sharing.

To convert and edit Xiaomi YI 4K videos, you can free download a Xiaomi YI 4K video converter - Pavtube Video Converter for Mac.

After that, you can smoothly upload your Xiaomi YI video to YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Vimeo for sharing with the friends on the websites.
