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.

"Excellent, Efficient Software"

October 13, 2013  |  By Segadoeswhatnintendont

 |  Version: Flv Crunch 1.5.0

Pros

FLV Crunch is a fantastic, uncluttered tool that does exactly what it is meant to do: provide an easy-to-learn interface to convert virtually any video file into almost any other video file (I believe Web Movies are the only kind of file I did not see support fot). The process is streamlined enough for the novice user, but the advanced technophiles looking for greater customization options will find it here.

Cons

As I mentioned, the WebM videos seem incompatible (but that is, of course, just one format in many).

Summary

In short, almost every format of video can be easily and intuitively remade into any other format--with a depth of customization options when it comes to output quality--making this a fantastic tool for an amazing price: FREE.

"Easy and impressive editing feature"

August 04, 2013  |  By Vintathaur

 |  Version: Flv Crunch 1.5.0

Pros

I use a lot of video while teaching, both online and live- which means that I need different file formats for different purposes: iMovie compatible for editing, flv for webinars, and quicktime (mov) for embedding in power point presentations. Add to that, I usually get my video clips from audience members, so they come in all different formats! Wondershare Video converter makes it possible for a non-technophile like me to look like a pro!
I found 25% discount here:

Cons

Work as advertised.

Summary

I planned to import some flv files to iMovie, but they grey out. I don't know why, maybe just too strange. I searched on the internet and tried this video converter because it receives very good comments. I have to admit that this is really amazing. This video converter assessed the situation and automatically knew what format it was in and all I had to do was choose the output format, and convert. Now I have uploaded 4 converted files edited by iMovie to YouTube, thanks a lot!

"Worked fine to convert from mov to mp4"

March 28, 2013  |  By dabunting

 |  Version: Flv Crunch 1.5.0

Pros

It worked flawlessly, easily, quickly on the 3 videos I needed convert

Cons

None but should mention I didn't test change of resolution or frame rate.

Summary

Worked fine to convert mov to mp4, though I didn't change resolution or frame rate so can't say anything about those capabilities. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was that I didn't test these capabilities.

"AWESOME, simply awesome!"

February 12, 2013  |  By BiffT

 |  Version: Flv Crunch 1.5.0

Pros

Does exactly what it says, audio, video - and outputs in nearly every format. Very simple, and where do I send my donation? Output is flawless.

Cons

Can be slow, but depends on file types, and slow=quality.

Summary

I would pay for this application. I can not tell you how many BS apps I have downloaded from CNET in the last 14 years that have just turned out to be pure trash. This thing is a full fledged utility workhorse, and they should be charging for it. Leave a comment where to send the money and I will send it.

"Works even better than VLC"

February 02, 2013  |  By Candye_Man

 |  Version: Flv Crunch 1.5.0

Pros

Plays all kinds of video files. Lots of different conversion options. Performs good-looking exports. And it's free!

Cons

The "Remove" button doesn't seem to work when you want to remove a file from the list of source files to be converted. This can be a problem if you accidentally put the wrong file in the list and want to delete it. The workaround is to quit FLV Crunch, re-start it with an empty source files box, and repopulate the box with the files you do want to convert.

Summary

My compliments to the creator. I had two files downloaded from the internet which had an odd problem. In QuickTime, Movist, MPEG Streamclip and other programs, the two clips played for five minutes each -- but in VLC they turned out to be 30 minutes long each!

I wanted to export them to another file format so I could play them in QuickTime or any other program for the full 30 minutes -- but of course VLC doesn't do file-to-file conversions. I tried all kinds of other programs. FLV Crunch was the first and only app that would both play the full movies and export them to another format as well. I converted my two files to .mp4s, and they look great.

Many thanks!

"Not as good on my new iMac"

January 12, 2013  |  By docdss

 |  Version: Flv Crunch 1.5.0

Pros

Works well on most formats.

Cons

Some WMZ files did not convert well into other formats no matter what format you try to convert to.

Summary

I just got my brand new 27 inch iMac, with all the trimmings. I switched from a PowerPC Mac laptop. It worked fine on my laptop, but on my new iMac after I've converted the video but I tried to open up the video it opened up the conversion program, instead of video. I tried reopening it several times but the same thing kept happening. I tried with other videos that I recently downloaded and converted, but it did the same thing on all of them. I wound up deleting the program, and I'm going to try downloading again from my new Mac to see if that makes a difference. I will keep you posted if I have better luck.
