Editors' Review

+

Flv Crunch is one of many free tools available for converting various video and audio files to multiple formats. The application has a pretty standard user interface, giving you access to the basic conversion operations without any customization options, but you won't really miss them, as Flv Crunch does a very good job in a short time frame.

If you are a novice user, you may want to access the built-in Help file, but intermediate and advanced level users will intuitively know where to click and what action to take in order to improve the video conversion. What we liked is the application's ability to convert a long list of file types such as MPEG and Windows Media Player files, and convert them into the most common ones used on the Mac OS X platform.

The video conversion process is as easily said as done. Here FLV Crunch comes with very useful presets to allow you to work more easily, allowing you to quickly convert videos to iPod- and iPhone compatible formats or just standard VGA. However, there are little tricks you may want to learn in order to get the best conversion. For example, if the video you want to convert is in high quality, you'll need to check the high-quality option in order to keep the same quality after the file is converted. Once you remember these details, we think you'll like this simple app as much as we did.

Overall, FLV Crunch's performance was great; we couldn't find any issues during our testing, and its easy-to-understand interface make the video memories conversion process seamless and fun. Highly recommended for all levels of users.

"Nicely done!"

May 10, 2011  |  By NOwl

 |  Version: FLV Crunch 1.3.1

Pros

Easy interface, converts perfectly.

Cons

None, so far.

Summary

I tried to convert two clips with two other converters, and both failed. Found/installed this one, and it chewed through them without any problems and playback was perfect - some "dead air" at the end of one of the clips was also automatically removed for me, so I didn't have to edit it out.

"Why? It doesn't do anything not already on OSX."

April 30, 2011  |  By Go2HellCBS

 |  Version: FLV Crunch 1.3.1

Pros

None at all, it is a waste of HD space. Although the interface is well done.

Cons

Wh0 would need this app? QuickTime plays .flv files and converts them to many other formats. FLV Crunch is very inefficient. Converting same file with Crunch and QT to .wmv, the Crunch file went from 12.3 MB to 40 MB. The QT file went to 7.5 MB.

Summary

Give this one a miss. It's of no use at all.

".3GP format not supported for file conversion"

February 27, 2011  |  By CoachAV

 |  Version: FLV Crunch 1.3.1

Pros

Simple interface.

Cons

This application states that it's possible to convert .3gp formats. When the .3gp file is loaded, the application says that the format is unsupported. I looked

Summary

Based on the other reviews, I'm sure this is a good application. However, the one requirement I have to convert from a .3gp file to a.MP4, .AVI, .MOV (really anything) file isn't supported.
I saw another user's post stating the same thing, with the software authors questioning if the .3GP file is corrupt. I can assure you, the files that I'm trying to convert are not corrupt. The application does not work as advertised/intended.

"A good, free file converter"

February 15, 2011  |  By FeeIsGood

 |  Version: FLV Crunch 1.3.1

Pros

I have yet to encounter any major issues on this little app. It does simple file conversion efficiently. Try it. I use this program more often than quicktime pro.

Cons

It seems it does not support unicode naming scheme. If you have non-english characters in your file name it won't convert. So remember to change your file name to all-English before converting.

Summary

You're set with this little program, along with Safari's (Mac) hidden feature: copy from Activity, and paste to Download. Loads of videos in my iTunes library now.

"It works great and its free, what more could you ask!"

January 18, 2011  |  By trevorgant

 |  Version: FLV Crunch 1.3.1

Pros

It works great and you can put in a custom bitrate by typing it in, in case people were wondering.

Cons

I wish it had interlacing options thats the only con I can think of.

Summary

Everyone has already said it, great product. Lots of other products that aren't free are much much worse than this, download it now!
