Editors' Review

+

Freemake Video Converter is an application mainly for converting video files to other formats, but offers other converting and downloading features as well.

This application is a worthwhile download. The layout is very simple, making it easy to understand how to use it. Freemake offers a row of media buttons at the top and bottom of the window, which are labeled clearly and are simple to use. It is very easy to navigate the various steps required to convert videos and audio as well as download videos and audio from the Internet. The waiting time varies from one conversion job to the next, depending on the size and type. Converting a t3-minute audio file to MP3 can be done in less than a minute, while converting a 15-minute video to WMV can take over an hour and a half.

The program's Help pages are very good. The tutorials come with a short video as well as images which are very easy to understand. There seem to be a lot of hidden gems in this converter as well, such as a few editing features for videos and the ability to add subtitles to your videos when you rip them from your DVDs. You can also convert photos and have plenty of conversion options.

"Can't Go Wrong"

November 30, 2011  |  By Lance B

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 2.4

Pros

Incredibly easy to use, reliable, and free. Better program than a lot of others out there for you have to pay $40 to $80 for.

Cons

Audio tends to drop for a second out sometimes. Slow to convert when making compilations using lots of files.

"Free and useful"

November 26, 2011  |  By rliang2013

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 2.4

Pros

Good conversion from any video to DVD
absolutely free!!!
can convert between any video formats

Cons

Unpredictable DVD subtitles and aspect ratio. Sometimes a 2.35:1 movie becomes 16:9 on the DVD and sometimes it retains its aspect ratio. Subtitle fonts vary for some reason.

Also converting is a bit slow for large files (over an hour) and the finished file is often larger and worse quality than the original.

Summary

Performance could be better but it's the best you can get for free so get it.

"BEST FREE video converter!"

November 24, 2011  |  By Jbone1337

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 2.4

Pros

-Supports i think almost every format to import, and can export all of the common video formats.
-VERY easy to use
-100% FREE (no trial, no limits, no ads, no pro version, no toolbars/etc **** installed)
-lots of options

Cons

-Seems they dont give credit to AVCodec/ffmpeg, but who does now days? i have yet to see one piece of software legally use them XD

Summary

Now before we get the "conversion is slow" negative reviews, conversion speed is like 95% based on your computer hardware. This does support nvidia cuda and DXVA for faster encoding.
