Free MP4 Video Converter takes videos saved in unfamiliar or incompatible formats and converts them into MP4s, which are to videos what MP3s are to music files, more or less. DVDVideoSoft's freeware converter makes it super-easy to convert videos into MP4s tailored to give the best picture on your specific device -- whether it's a smartphone, tablet, or widescreen LCD. It handles just about any video format you're likely to encounter, including AVI, IVF, DIV, DIVX, M4V, WEBM, WMV, ASF, MOV, QT, MTS, M2T, DAT, 3GP2, FLV, AMV,OGV, TS, and many others. Free MP4 Video Converter runs in Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8.

Free MP4 Video Converter's installation and setup is a bit more complicated than some similar tools, and not just in the extra programs we avoided by opting for the custom installation. The installer ran a series of tests on our system's graphics and video capabilities, including whether it's suitable for GPU acceleration and whether all codec packs were up to date. The program's user interface is fairly standard, though the background design may be a matter of taste. If it doesn't suit yours, several others are available, including a plain-vanilla look, as well as other options such as playing sounds and enabling ATI acceleration for compatible hardware. Free MP4 Video Converter also includes many language options, plus the ability to save profiles and run them with a wizard.

What we like about Free MP4 Video Converter starts with its Quality menu: Select your device type or manufacturer or a specific output format, and then choose your exact device, screen resolution, or other parameters from the larger submenu. It made quick work of converting a 26-minute YouTube video to play on our Samsung smartphone. For freeware, Free MP4 Video Converter offers a lot.

"Rife with malware"

October 27, 2014  |  By KillerTruffle

 |  Version: Free MP4 Video Converter 5.0.51.1022

Pros

Unknown - could not even locate the actual program among all the junk it installed.

Cons

Installs at least half a dozen malware/junk programs and hijacks your default browser home page and search engines, EVEN IF you deselect all additional options during installation.

Summary

Download.com should vet software it hosts and absolutely should remove any programs as plagued with malware as this is. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever something like this should be on Download.com, and it significantly hurts the site's reputation as a whole.

"Download if you want malware"

September 23, 2013  |  By EveryZiggy

 |  Version: Free MP4 Video Converter 5.0.28.827

Pros

Does install some form of a video converter, I don't know, I deleted it immediately when I saw all the other stuff that it downloaded.

Cons

Downloads all kinds of malware and adware that will infect your registry with the conduit adware. This adware hijacks your browser to constantly send you to the adware's homepage. Took me about an hour to delete all the additions it made to my registry and start up files and I had to completely uninstall my firefox browser.

Summary

This product is a virus.

"DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!!"

September 19, 2013  |  By markdigitalmedia

 |  Version: Free MP4 Video Converter 5.0.28.827

Pros

None as only a fool would let software like this stay on their system!

Cons

Malware Alert!!

Summary

Unbelivably this program comes bundled with the Delta Search (Thinks it's a search engine) Virus. They have didnt even bother give you a notification with this one, they just dl it to your machine.

I should have read the comments, but I stupidly was trusting CNET, but have discovered if you follow their malware advice it leads you to a dead end, for as you can see you CANNOT contact them on this website! So this file will stay here infecting all that download it!

It's gonna take me a while to remove this now, and these guys are developing it as this version is not detected by my AVG or MWBAM so I dont even know how well that will be!!

Goodbye CNET!
It was nice knowing you!

Updated on Sep 19, 2013

I found the contact form & am reporting this now!

"Pretty great, especially for freeware"

August 11, 2013  |  By Cherdan

 |  Version: Free MP4 Video Converter 5.0.27.711

Pros

This is the 3rd video converter I've tried, and it has been the only one that I had correctly encoded mp4 videos with. All the other ones I've tried have 95% of the time resulted in the inability to play the entire file on my iPod Classic; the videos would always stop playing around the halfway mark and jump back to the previous screen. This program also seems to convert a lot faster. It does them one at a time, but the way it queues up all the files you are waiting to convert is super efficient. All in all, pretty nifty for a free product. And the skins feature is a nice bonus!!

Cons

Solely the fact that you cannot convert more than one file at a time, although I believe doing just that was what caused the vast majority of my files to fail in Any Video Converter (the only one I used that allowed you to do so).

Summary

I'm lovin it

"Fast and good quality utility"

April 20, 2012  |  By ifi12ican

 |  Version: Free MP4 Video Converter 5.0.9

Pros

This series of video converters is very nice because they specialize in only one specific conversion type. There are various separate converters for each type of original file. This has the advantage of optimizing the converter for the specific task.
This converter was FAST and did a good to very good conversion. I converted an HD Sony MTS file of 33 seconds in less than 25 seconds.

Cons

Of course, they want you to install a tool bar, and if you install the toolbar it will have 6x speed of conversion.

Summary

Targeted to specific input files and FAST, with very good quality after conversion
