Miro Video Converter for Mac's clean interface makes it easy to convert any video file into other formats for use on a broad range of media devices. It's a basic freeware option that works well for a variety of formats and devices.
After installation Miro Video Converter for Mac opens to a clean interface with intuitive controls. The main menu features basic options to open video files and includes a useful Help file. Users may import video files by opening them through the main menu or by dragging and dropping them into the interface. The program's main menu features four buttons labeled "Apple," "Android," "Other," and "Format," which control the output for the file being converted. Clicking these buttons gives users specific device options for each manufacturer, including the iPhone, iPad, Android devices, Kindle Fire, PlayStation Portable, and more. Once selected, video and audio conversions begin after clicking the big, green convert button located underneath the format buttons. Converted files output to a user-designated location, and users may select to convert to mobile, MP4, and OGG Theora video outputs, and MP3 or OGG Vorbis audio outputs. For testing purposes we used an MP4 video clip that was two minutes in length. The application took from around a couple of seconds to five minutes to complete each conversion, depending on the format we chose. While audio and most video outputs were satisfactory, conversion to OGG format resulted in low quality.
Miro Video Converter for Mac offers a free solution for users seeking to convert video and audio files for use on other devices. While this video converter might be useful to some users, others who are looking to convert their videos to OGG format should look elsewhere.
