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.

"Version 3.1.1.3"

September 27, 2012  |  By solsolman

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 3.1.1.3

Pros

With all of the converter software out there it all comes down to ease and beauty of the gui. This is the best of both worlds. Friendly gui with great picture icons for beginners, but also customizable for advanced users.A lot of extras such as toolbar and such that I never use, but at least it gives me the option to "uncheck".

Cons

After install is finished an install automatically begins of something called Sendori,never asking you for permission.

Summary

Best I've used so far!

"Great stuff and totally free. Very easy to use."

September 26, 2012  |  By Khronikos

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 3.1.1.3

Pros

It's Free! When 10k others cost 20 or more dollars. Converting files is fast and easy at least on my PC. No problems whatsoever. I hope they improve the interface in the future but as is I still like it and will use it to convert all my files.

Cons

Not really any if you are AT ALL COMPETENT in installing your software.

Summary

My oh my you have to be an idiot to accept the toolbars and whatever else people advertise with their software. Seriously, go back to 3rd grade where they teach you to read competently. This installs nothing that will harm your computer. Decline all the ware they offer. That stuff is there because it funds their application. Good god.

September 16, 2012  |  By Vicky8609

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 3.1.1.3

Pros

Safe, fast, converts dozens of video formast and burns my DVDs for FREE!

There are no trojans, spyware or any viruses! I've check it before download and still converting I have no virus notifications.

Freemake Video Converter works as promised. I've converted with Freemake about 40 videos and each video was converter right. I had no bugs, blurred videos or problems with playback on my DVD.

Cons

I wish they had Mac version too. It's for Windows XP, Vista and 7 only.

Summary

Freemake Video Converter is the safe way to watch video on any device or format.

"WARNING: Packed with Bloatware & hijacks your browsers."

September 10, 2012  |  By Moose256

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 3.1.1.3

Pros

Vidoe conversion seems to work although not fast

Cons

You will want to uninstall it before you even get to the video conversion - the bloatware & browser hijack are MAJOR turnoffs.

Summary

Avoid! Use Handbrake instead.
