Any Video Converter Freeware

CNET Editors' review

Any Video Converter takes videos from your computer or downloaded from the Internet and converts them into just about any format you'd like. Just import the video, pick your preferred format, and hit convert, and you're ready to transfer that video to your mobile device.

Pros

Tons of options: You're almost guaranteed to find the right format in this app's long list of options. The formats are also organized by device, so you can quickly find the format you're looking for whether you have an iPhone, Android Phone, Android Tablet, Samsung Phone, Roku, or just about anything else.

Intuitive interface: All features of this app are conveniently available through its main interface. A few helpful tips pop up when you first open the app, pointing to various tools that you'll need, but it's hardly necessary. With just a few trial clicks, you'll be importing and converting videos like a pro.

Cons

Buggy playing: While the conversion side of the app works fine, there is also a Play tab that you should be able to use to play any video from your computer, and even those that you've downloaded through the app but not converted yet. But when we tried out this feature, all we saw was a blank screen, even though the controls seemed to indicate that the video was playing.

Bottom Line

This app works great as a converter, but if you wanted to use it as a video player, too, you may be out of luck. Overall, it's a good free program, and worth checking out if you often want to convert video files to play on other devices.

    "One problem."

    April 17, 2014  |   By querko

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.5.8

    Pros

    There are many pros with the software. Actually I don't use all the features it provides. I just use it to convert some vids to share with friends.

    Cons

    The only con I have is it doesn't seem to merge my video clips now. I have set the button both ways several times and no merge has happened yet.

    Summary

    This is my favorite converter program and I use it frequently. When I solve the merge problem I'm having it will get five stars.

    "Great Video Converter for free!"

    April 15, 2014  |   By forestsmith11

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.5.8

    Pros

    I've been used this freeware for years and absolutely love it! It was really easy and fast to install and so far has run without any problems. Converts almost any type of file to any other available formats with clear and easy to use setting options. And it also packs with the option to change settings, trim files and merge files.

    Cons

    Every time the update version would fix minor bugs that I've met on this program before, so I'm satisfied with their work. Wish it have more formats but plenty supported.

    Summary

    Easy, full featured, and stable as described. Not just for its functionality, but also for its simplicity. This program is great!

    "Fails to convert files everytime."

    April 11, 2014  |   By westirvine

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.5.8

    Pros

    Seems like its easy to use. No sure since it never successfully once worked.

    Cons

    Would always fail to convert files right in the middle and instead of aborting and finishing whatever it successfully did, it just fails the whole DVD.

    "DVD Burning is Primative"

    March 27, 2014  |   By nbarclay

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.5.8

    Pros

    Free
    Supports many formats

    Cons

    Doesn't create a title screen to choose among multiple files.
    Requires temporary storage twice the DVD size.
    Fails without a meaningful explanation if the space isn't available.

    Summary

    I downloaded this program looking for something to burn DVDs with several files each. I went through a lot of hassle having to free up disk space because in order to burn a DVD, the program has to convert the files to the right format and then create an image file on the hard drive. The result is that it requires an amount of free disk space twice as large as the size of the DVD. It doesn't warn about how much space will be required, or check whether the necessary space is available. And if the space isn't available, it fails without explaining the problem. There's also an interface issue where the program spends a long time showing zero percent finished because it doesn't start counting the percent finished until after it creates the image file on the hard drive and starts actually burning the DVD. Once I freed enough space, I was able to burn a DVD, but the DVD doesn't have any way to chose which of the five files on the disk I want to play. The result is I wasted a lot of time and a blank DVD, and now I have to start over to create what I want.

    If you have enough free hard disk space, the program can work okay if you just want to burn a DVD with a single file, although Microsoft's free program is a lot nicer. If you want a disk with multiple files, or your free hard disk space is marginal, look elsewhere.

    The program needs either to have better DVD burning capabilities or to make its limitations clear so people don't expect it to do things it can't.

    "Congratulations on the program, very useful!"

    March 24, 2014  |   By LadderToAnita

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.5.8

    Pros

    The video converter works perfect! Convert fast, very easy to download youtube and convert to my ipad.

    Cons

    Ultimate too expensive.

    Summary

    The free convert is the best one I have ever used. If you would like to download online video from youtube, vemo just as me, it is a good choice. Emm. It's better if the ultimate version can be cheaper. I would think about it.

    "Good stuff, and Free!"

    March 24, 2014  |   By rager

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.5.8

    Pros

    XP Pro and trying to resize some huge vids to play on my 256Mb vid card. Easy to use, look for GSpot to find original values for the vid.

    Cons

    Use the direct download, d'oh

    "I am very pleased with the latest update 5.5.8!"

    March 20, 2014  |   By Eline_wide

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.5.8

    Pros

    update fast, hear customers' voice to improve the program

    Cons

    NONE. If there is a downloading video problem, Any Video Converter team would fix it soon by releasing a new version.

    Summary

    I mainly use Any Video Converter free to download online videos, and it works fine. It showed adult website logo in the download panel suddenly in the previous version which is not appropriate. Thanks to the new version 5.5.8, the program removes these inappropriate things, so more people can use this program happily.

    "An excellent freeware for burning DVD"

    March 19, 2014  |   By Linnnnda

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.5.7

    Pros

    I must say it is the best freeware in burning DVD i have ever met. I got a lot of my blank DVDs burned successfully since I had it months ago. And it keeps upgrading and solves problem before. I want to express my gratefulness to its staff here.

    Cons

    No big weakness. Just to remind you guys to answer my emails faster and faster.

    Summary

    A very good free burner worth to use. Thank you for making such a software that works very well

    "WORKS FOR FREE"

    March 18, 2014  |   By HuyyDD

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.5.7

    Pros

    Free
    Works
    FREE
    FREE
    FREE

    Cons

    I can't see any cons except maybe that it isn't the fastest transfer, but that wouldn't be a problem at all in my opinion because the program is free and works well.

    Summary

    Very good. I looked forever after getting a new computer to transfer my files from my ipod to my computer and AVC did it for me without any issues.

    As an user who have used Any Video Converter for years, I gotta say it is perfect now.
