Convert Megabits Per Second to Megabytes Per Second Calculator

Use this calculator to convert megabits (Mbps, Mb/s) to megabytes (MBps, MB/s) and vice versa. It’s useful for when you’re working with video footage and memory cards.

With this simple calculator, you can convert megabits per second to megabytes per second and vice versa.

This can be useful if you’re capturing video footage and working with memory cards or other storage media.

Megabits per second can be written as either Mbps or Mb/s. They both use a lowercase “b.” Video bitrate is conventionally measured in Mb/s. It’s also conventionally used to measure internet speeds.

Megabytes per second can be written as either MBps or MB/s. They use a capitalized “B.” There are 8 bits in a byte, so there are 8 megabits in a megabyte. The speed of memory cards is conventionally measured in MB/s.

Memory Card Tools

Here are a few other related tools I’ve put together that can be useful when working with memory cards and data rates.

Converting Mbps to MB/s & X Speed Rating to MB/s

Another related and common calculation that often needs to be done when working with memory cards is converting the convention for measuring video bitrate (Mbps, Mb/s, or megabits per second) to the convention for measuring the speed of memory cards (MBps, MB/s, or megabytes per second).

So I’ve put together a simple calculator for that separately. You can find it here:

Memory Card Size Calculators

If you’re trying to figure out what size memory card to buy, it can be useful to know how much video footage from the camera you can fit on a card. Here are a few tools that can be useful for that:
