CNET 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.

    "It won't run on Windows 7 64 bit at all"

    January 29, 2013  |   By aclckc

    Version: Freemake Video Converter 3.2.1.2

    Pros

    None other than it installs with no errors.

    Cons

    I installed it with administrator rights after cleaning out all temp files and when running it after install, while still using administrator rights, it just shuts off and disappears. No errors, nothing...it just quits running and disappears. Uninstalled right away. Useless to me.

    Summary

    Buggy. Avoid it with Windows 7 64 bit at least. I didn't try it on any other pc yet, and don't plan to.

    "Such a excellent product"

    January 29, 2013  |   By erock_cnet12

    Version: Freemake Video Converter 3.2.1.2

    Pros

    This is the best converter ever. Nothing compares with quality and how easy it is to use. Really like variety of conversions available.

    Cons

    No adverse observations to report. All converters should be this awesome.

    Summary

    Such a great product...I had to come back a second time and rave. Very excellent. Really hope this remains available for a long time.

    "An exceptional product!"

    January 26, 2013  |   By triiv

    Version: Freemake Video Converter 3.2.1.2

    Pros

    The conversion was outstanding and I was not able to find anything that I use that could not be converted. Overall, exceptional results!

    Cons

    Somewhat slower than I expected.

    Summary

    I have nothing to compare the speed with, though it seemed somewhat slow. This is negated by the quality of the conversion and broad range of possible formates. I can provide nothing but praise, overall, for this product and it's flexability!

    "Crapware, useless utility programs installed too!"

    January 19, 2013  |   By objectiveman

    Version: Freemake Video Converter 3.2.1.2

    Pros

    Amazon toolbar added to browser, useless utility programs installed, about 3 or 4 other worrysome things...and after all that it didn't load
    If it worked I'd give the positives...normally I would not spend the time to review something(I'm very busy) but I just thought it would be the right thing to warn people. I watched this video on youtube...It sounded great...the guy who made the vid sounded like a nice believable person as well....and that's another reason this is disappointing...I've never seen so much adware. and again then after uninstalling the garbage...It didn't even work

    Cons

    It was a very negative, time consuming fiasco. I think finding a free converter isn't that easy...but I'll continue to look for one that doesn't install unnecessary stuff. very dirty install...wonder if it has left something I don't know about ___I feel so dirty, used...I'm going to shower now and see if I can stop thinking about how badly I was violated !!!yecht!

    Summary

    very very bad

    "best everything converter ever"

    January 18, 2013  |   By brooksrdb

    Version: Freemake Video Converter 3.2.1.2

    Pros

    I didn't know freeware could be this good until now. Nothing is easier or simpler to use.

    Cons

    None found. But would like to see slightly more film editing functionality, but very happy with the current built film editor.

    "This worked great!"

    January 18, 2013  |   By sarie111

    Version: Freemake Video Converter 3.2.1.2

    Pros

    I had tried some other converter before to try and convert mts camcorder material into wmv for windows movie maker 6, and it sucked. The quality degraded so much it wasn't even funny. With this product, I was able to just about preserve the quality of the original. Thanks... you saved my movie!

    Cons

    I didn't use it for anything more complicated than what I said, and it did that fine, so no cons.
