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.

"Don't Install"

October 17, 2014  |  By alanspam

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 4.1.5

Pros

Used to be good

Cons

What was a decent converter is now loaded with spyware which even if you take care to de-select all the options in a custom installation, continues to screw your computer

Summary

Norton blocked multiple malware attacks on my computer following installation and I even had problems with Internet Explorer following a system restore. I would avoid this at all costs

"Great all around free converter"

October 15, 2014  |  By techman93

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 4.1.5

Pros

-Simple interface.
-Very easy to use.
-Can convert a lot of video and audio formats.

Cons

-No drag and drop.
-Would have liked being able to crop video isn't available in this.
-Crappy adware attempt on install. (Most AV/Antimalare programs will detect this)

Summary

This is a decent free video converter. If they allowed drag and drop this would be way faster to use than having to select each file. I hope they do this in the future.

"AVG Detected AdLoad OpenCandy during custom install"

October 13, 2014

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 4.1.5

Pros

Haven't tried the program yet. Maybe I'll increase the rating after I've used it a while.

Cons

Attempted to install malware/adware.

Summary

AVG seems to have blocked and removed the offensive included software. I'll run a full system check now and see if anything comes of it. I know it's free, but they package adware into the installer and then ask you for a donation immediately when the install completes. Not a good way to encourage a donation.
