Freemake Video Converter is a piece of media conversion software that can quickly and efficiently convert video files into any of the most popular formats used in the current market. The software is easy to use, and the user interface has a pleasant design.

The main function of Freemake Video Converter is to use the powerful conversion tools integrated with the software to change common video file formats into any other common video file formats. Of course, it has other functions as well. It can produce visualizations for music and slideshows from your photos. Any file that you have just converted can be instantly uploaded to YouTube from inside the software for the ultimate convenience. A few of the compatible formats that this software supports include WMV, AVI, MP4, DVD, 3GP, MP3, and many others.

This software has been designed for maximum ease of use. It can handle batch conversions, or you can choose to convert files one at a time. All you have to do is select the file or files from inside the software and select an end format. Before you begin the conversion process, you'll have to choose from a number of conversion profiles that will determine where the video can be played. When batch converting, you can only select a single format to which all your batched files will convert, but you can select multiple formats in the batch and the software will handle them all. Compared to other tools of this nature, Freemake Video Converter is surprisingly fast. Of course, the speed of the conversion is dependent on the size of the original file, so larger files will obviously take longer to convert.

In order to stand out from the numerous competitors in the field of free video conversion software, Freemake Video Converter includes one set of functions that most other converters ignore, and those are editing functions. To be fair, you can only rotate, flip, or crop videos before the conversion process, so don't expect much. You can use this same editor to build presentations and slideshows with your music and photos.

Unfortunately, the Freemake Video Converter editor isn't very stable. It doesn't always load images that have been selected, and it plays back video in jarred, clunky quality. It's usable, but only barely. Overall, this tool is pretty useful when it comes to quickly converting video formats, and it works with some image and audio formats as well. Considering the software is free and so easy to use, it's hard to find a reason why you shouldn't give it a try.

In the most recent version of Freemake Video Converter, a module was added to the software so the user can change the language. The software was also localized to Danish, Dutch, and Italian in the update. An issue with YouTube videos and their quality recognition was repaired as well.

  • Editor Stability Issues

Freemake Video Converter is a completely free program for editing and converting videos to various formats. Aside from being completely free, the biggest strength of Freemake Video Converter is its speed. Similar programs will lag behind Freemake as it quickly and efficiently converts video formats to something more suitable. It even has the capability to convert an HD 1080p video to a smaller format. That makes this a helpful program for creating a video library intended for a mobile device. Some of the included format options include 3GP, AVI, MP4 and MKV. You can also use this program to prepare and burn videos to DVD or Blu-Ray.

Easy For Everyone To Use.

People who aren't experienced with converting videos might have a hard time understanding many of the tools available online today. Freemake Video Converter changes this by offering simplistic, one-touch conversion options. There's also a hefty help file that will teach newcomers everything they need to know to get their video the way they like it. It's capable of handling any video format out there, so there's no need to hunt down additional programs for unusual format conversions along the way. They strive to make the process fast, simple and easy.

New Updates All Of The Time.

Luckily, this is a program that is still active and updated fairly regularly. In the past, it might have taken 10 minutes to convert a two-minute video. Today, it can take as little as nine minutes to convert a 10-minute video, depending on the formats. That’s a significant improvement over past numbers and only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to updates. Freemake Video Converter has listened to complaints from the past and offered solutions by making a lot of changes, such as new layouts and specialty add-ons.
