At some point, we began to focus on transcoding. The web is full of questions on how to play any video or audio file on iPhone, iPad or Android device. I'm also the same. I have a long search for the best solutions to convert my videos to some formats compatible with my handheld devices and also have tried so many related file format converters. And today I’m happy to share you two best video file converter software I use for quite a long time and work the best among plenty of similar tools.
Format Factory is my top choice for free video converter. It’s a multifunctional media program. It supports almost all video format including MP4, AVI, 3GP, RMVB, MOV, FLV, etc and audio formats like MP3, WMA, APE, FLAC, AAC and more. Apart from that, it enables you to convert between image common formats, merge video and audio files as well as rip some protected DVDs. Meanwhile, you are able to do some editing functions like watermarking, trimming, rotating and inputting subtitles.
Pro: Supports almost all video formats and audio formats; Rip DVDs and Music CDs; Convert image format; Can merge video and audio files
Here comes the second best video file converter – Any Video Converter. The program name actually says it all. Any Video Converter freeware is very easy-to-use conversion software which has an understandable interface and lets you directly drag your videos to the program at one time. It supports batch mode but can only convert up to 5 files. Besides, with it, you can simply record your favorite output format or device for future use. And this program also supports you to download YouTube and Google video by copying and pasting the URL or by dragging URL to it.
Pro: Easy to use; Can download YouTube and Google video; Support to record users’ favorite output format and device
Cons: The conversion speed is somewhat slow; Don’t support the latest device; Video and audio settings are complex and many are useless, for example, the sample rate choice starts from 8KHz and frame rate from 8FPS which is no good for high video audio quality; When a file is converted, a window will pop up telling you to buy its ultimate version.
You must find that the two free file format converters mentioned above are with varying degrees of flaws.
