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.

    "Very Good program"

    October 15, 2014   |   By mb208

    Version: Any Video Converter 5.7.3

    Pros

    Converts just about any video format, even to audio such as mp3. Also downloads via URL web address. Enables any video format to DVD disc with basic menu. Fairly simple UI with decent setting options. Doesn't use up too much RAM. No ads in UI.

    Cons

    AVG detected a trojan on installation but I think this is a false positive - turn off antivirus before installing. Conversion rate is a bit slow and there is no time prediction as to how long it will take. However it has been fine so far and will work in background.

    Summary

    Good software that's worth installing, especially as its free. Converting formats to audio is a bonus.

    "EXTREMELY pleased!"

    October 12, 2014   |   By Glanscript

    Version: Any Video Converter 5.7.3

    Pros

    Downloaded using the URL option and converted a 30 minute and a 3 hour video without any issues at all. Extremely user-friendly.

    Cons

    None found as of yet.

    Summary

    Probably the most user-friendly program out there, and that's the "free" version. It does exactly what it says it does, without clutter or unnecessary garbage. I should say that it downloaded ONLY the program and no spyware, adware, malware or other nonsense programs. I can see this making my work MUCH easier, and faster, and if all goes well will be looking at purchasing either pro or ultimate within the next six or eight months.

    VERY satisfied customer!

    "Fix Problems Quickly"

    October 10, 2014   |   By EchoChen

    Version: Any Video Converter 5.7.3

    Pros

    As an old user of Any Video Converter, I have to say you guys really work hard to update programs and fix bugs. The 5.7.3 version fix all my previous problems.

    Cons

    Some bugs may come up when program gets update.

    Summary

    It is still the best free video converter!

    "5.7.2 and 5.7.1 both suck!!!"

    October 06, 2014   |   By DanFunk

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.7.2

    Pros

    None, nada, nil!!!

    Cons

    Does not convert right. Support still hasn't replied to e-mails after 2weeks. Support must be for paid only?

    Summary

    Would recommend to my enemies not my friends. Can't do the stars, they don't have any minus ones. Excuse the 1/2 star, wouldn't let me post without.

    "NEW VERSION CONVERTS FILES BUT WON'T BURN THEM"

    October 05, 2014   |   By rocketcab

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.7.2

    Pros

    Latest version comes with lots of new features and converts files just as-good-as the older versions....

    Cons

    WILL NOT BURN FILES TO DISC ANYMORE.... The older versions, however, worked just fine.... The older versions of this software always featured a "burn" icon when file conversion was complete.... Now, when user attempts to burn the finished product (after having to extract it from another folder), the program says that user's disc space is too small.... Hence, the FILE BURNING FUNCTION HAS BEEN RENDERED "INOPERABLE" AND THE ICON-FOR-SAME "USELESS"....

    Summary

    Entire program, with all of its new features, is utterly useless because it no longer burns converted files, period.

    "Contains PUP OpenCandy malware"

    September 25, 2014   |   By garyheard

    Version: Any Video Converter Free 5.7.1

    Pros

    Excellent program when it works, but often fails to download the video after a month or so, or unless a new program update is downloaded.

    Cons

    Two problems. Program updates are frequently requested
    A PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) can be extremely annoying and quite difficult to get rid of. It will come loaded with adware, which as anyone who has been infected by adware can tell you, can drive you to the brink of insanity with its relentless adverts, plus it will very likely hijack your browser and install a strange and unwanted toolbar on your machine too. Not only do unwanted toolbars get in the way but they can direct you to websites that the creators want you to visit and can in general make using your computer a real user-unfriendly experience. PUP.Optional.OpenCandy is also a form of spyware which enables it to be installed deep within your PC's operating system so that it is harder for you to find - and therefore delete.

    Summary

    Detected by Malwarebytes protection program.

    "CANNOT BURN SAVED CONVERTED FILES LATER"

    August 30, 2014   |   By computertest

    Version: Any Video Converter Freeware 5.6.6

    Pros

    seems to do a good job converting

    Cons

    Does not allow you to burn your saved converted files later, there is no "burn" icon, just a "convert" icon. You must burn as part of the conversion process or It forces you to start the whole conversion process over again (which takes a couple of hours just to convert one movie). Therefore, if you receive a "burning process failed" error for whatever reason (in my case 2 movies didn't quite fit on a DVD), you must start the conversion process all over again even though the converted files are saved in the AVC folder on your computer.
