The co-existence of multiple formats, applications and devices has made the conversion between media formats an increasingly frequent operation, even for inexperienced users. In response to such demands, myriads of converters have appeared, and deciding, which is best for your purpose is probably one of the most difficult tasks. Freemake Video Converter is one of the tools intended to help you convert video files between multiple formats. In addition, it can create movies from audio and picture files. It also supports downloading video and ripping audio from video sharing sites.

In terms of the design of its graphic user interface, Freemake Video Converter resembles other similar applications. However, those users who are familiar with media converters will probably take advantage of this similarity. As a result, this program is easy to use.

This converter supports a great number of formats, including such popular ones as AVI, MP4, MPG, WMV, 3GP, QT and MKV, either as input or output. Multiple output profiles are readily available to avoid compatibility issues between the resulting files and your portable device. You can also create videos with the purpose of uploading them to the Internet. Besides converting, this program can also burn discs, including CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs. Moreover, it can save the generated contents as ISO images or as standard folders.

Fortunately, this program allows basic editing actions, such as cropping, cutting, rotating, flipping and joining videos. Freemake Video Converter can also manage subtitles efficiently. Thus, it can detect the availability of multiple subtitle streams within a video file and let you decide which one to use in the resulting movie. Similarly, it allows you to import external subtitles and embed them during conversion.

In general, Freemake Video Converter is an excellent alternative to paid applications of the same type. Despite many users might consider free software as less valuable, this tool is an example that the cost of an application is not necessarily related to its quality. In addition to providing an extensive range of functions, it can convert video preserving good quality and efficiency because it supports modern hardware technologies.
