Free iPod Video Converter

CNET Editors' review

Like many similar apps, Free iPod Video Converter is a spiffed-up front end for codecs that transforms your digital video files into an iPod-compatible format. But to give the program some credit, it is easy to use, and of course it's free. It works with AVI, MPEG, VOB, WMV, and RM files and supports batch conversion. You can specify the video and sound quality and have the program automatically shut down the computer when it's finished. There's nothing groundbreaking here, but Free iPod Video Converter's reasonably good looks, decent functionality, and free price make it a solid competitor.

    "Nice interface, but dosen't work with MOB files."

    November 28, 2010  |   By alborgg

    Version: Free iPod Video Converter 1.32 build 852

    Pros

    Nice interface.

    Cons

    Asks one to run a special codec file, but no URL is given for that download. Essentially it didn't do the job. Maybe it's because it is now 4 years old. It would be nice for the author to update it.

    Summary

    This old file didn't work for me. 1-2 stars is appropriate.

    "Fantastic. This is a product to donate to :)"

    July 27, 2009  |   By brie987

    Version: Free iPod Video Converter 1.32 build 852

    Pros

    Simple, clean, easy, and priced right ( I will be donating )

    Cons

    I wish it was faster but that is how I feel about most things.

    Summary

    Very simple and small foot print. Does what is says. I will be looking into other software of theirs. Thanks.

    "Simple & Does What It Says On The Tin"

    January 11, 2009  |   By Yamshark

    Version: Free iPod Video Converter 1.32 build 852

    Pros

    Straight-forward and free. The batch convert and shut down when finished means I can leave it working when I go to bed/leave the house.

    Cons

    nothing wrong with it.

    Summary

    Simple to use and did the job. I needed something to convert mpg2 movies etc. To mpg4 for my sony walkman. My Dr Who collection is slowly being converted (in conjunction with other software) and watched on long journeys thanks to this product.

    "I loved it"

    January 8, 2009  |   By EnglandForever

    Version: Free iPod Video Converter 1.32 build 852

    Pros

    Free, fast and simple to use! Doesn't give you a time limit on what your can convert like the other programs I have tried. I recommend it.

    Cons

    No cons seen yet

    Summary

    Simple for everyone to figure out, lets you know the progress and its faster than everything else I have tried.

    "Converts well but my iPod gets stuc frequently"

    January 6, 2009  |   By pguggia

    Version: Free iPod Video Converter 1.32 build 852

    Pros

    Very simple to use, nice UI, convertas a lotof pouplar formats, works faster than I expected

    Cons

    My videos work once or twice, then the screen freezes at launch and buttons are not responding. Requires reboot.
    I double checked with some MPG4 downloaded from iTunes and they work fine, so it's not a iPod issue, looks like a converter issue.

    Summary

    I'd like to see more comments, will use it again but also search for an alternative

    "Alternative sources may be better"

    January 2, 2009  |   By krysstar247

    Version: Free iPod Video Converter 1.32 build 852

    Pros

    Good converter, didn't have much problems.

    Cons

    While the product is useful, it doesn't have some of the features that other ipod converters have.While you can use it as a trial version, if you follow guidelines you can get the regirstration code for free. Does not have a downloadble feature.

    Summary

    I recommend giving E.M. Youtube Video Download Tool a try if Free Ipod Video Converter does not work for you. For instance. E.M. youtube video download tool allows you to not only convert your vidoes to ipod, but also download it from any website. I

    "Worked, but with major flaws"

    December 28, 2008  |   By BennyMac2

    Version: Free iPod Video Converter 1.32 build 852

    Pros

    It converted my .avi file to .mp4 and played on my ipod like it said

    Cons

    the image was mirrored upside down and backwards.. so, yeah..

    Summary

    Stay away from this one, there are decient freeware out there that does it without lame limitations like this, although maybe i just missed something.. But i'm not satisfied with this program at all..
