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.

"Very Happy, Yes it Works"

March 22, 2016  |  By Imogen7Ryan

2016-03-22 14:52:24  |  By Imogen7Ryan

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

It converted a very bad audio quality .avi video into a clearer .mp4 video.

Cons

Installed another desktop shortcut for the companies other software to download if I wanted any of them. Tried to uninstall and the original program wouldn't work so had to reinstall.

Summary

This did the job of what I needed it to do with good results. I haven't tried any other conversions and can only comment on the .avi to .mp4 conversion.

Pros

I use something more sophisticated in my daily routine, but I'm not putting this down. This is terrific for the casual user, you won't be pulling you hair out, like I do when I try to teach someone to use my tools. five stars out of five.

Cons

no problems

"Converted a variety of formats"

December 09, 2015  |  By chrisp82

2015-12-09 17:04:40  |  By chrisp82

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

-It converted .asf, .mov, wmv, .mpg, mpeg, and divx to mp4. I tried several converters before this one, and this one got them all.
-It allowed me to add by folder instead of one at a time. I had many clips to convert and doing them one at a time would have taken forever.

Cons

-Tried to change browser settings
-Installed malware 'protection'

Summary

I got my old movie clips converted to mp4 for free. For free. 5 stars. I won't complain about the inconvenience of malware.

"Works but read EVERYTHING!!!!!"

September 08, 2015  |  By Mikeymikemikey

2015-09-08 01:43:02  |  By Mikeymikemikey

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

It converts Flv to MP4 nicely.

Cons

It tries to install Crapware in both the CNET installer and the main install.

You have to uncheck agree boxes and/or click decline buttons (which are greyed out). Pick 'custom install' as Advance means viruses. The software then also says you need to update graphics card driver, ignore that.

Still, I can't say for 100% whether the app does not track user internet use like everything these. days.

Summary

Works but Read everything to avoid virus, and this review will probably get deleted eventually because CNET does like you telling people how to avoid the crapware.

Hi moderator, special place in hell reserved just for you.

"Does not do what it promises. (Period)"

June 18, 2015

2015-06-18 20:34:49

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

None, it does not convert video in the free version.

Cons

It does not convert Video in the free version. I have no problem paying for a product, but this one clearly said, "I'm free" and " I convert video". It did not say, "Oh, buy the way if you pay extra for me, I will actually convert video, but until then, all I will do is capture your audio and save it to the file.

B-S.

Summary

It does not do what it says for free. It is misleading. (Period)

I am so sick of advertising these days. It's all lies, nothing but BS Lies.

"Rife with malware"

October 27, 2014  |  By KillerTruffle

2014-10-27 10:08:05  |  By KillerTruffle

 |  Version: Not Found

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

2013-09-23 10:38:55  |  By EveryZiggy

 |  Version: Not Found

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

2013-09-19 18:22:45  |  By markdigitalmedia

 |  Version: Not Found

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!
