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.

"Loaded with crap"

September 04, 2013  |  By rick_longstreth

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 4.0.4.0

Pros

It was a decent test for all my security, virus, and malware detection software.

Cons

This program comes LOADED with Malware. I've removed 16 different malware programs that installed while trying this program out.

Summary

Find another program to use unless you want to test and see how well your security software does it's job.

September 02, 2013  |  By tomysshadow

Pros

Works better than previous versions
Love the ability to join files, even of multiple types, sample rates...
A kajillion formats and the ability to create your own
It's free

Cons

Audio becomes out of sync with video after a long time
Will install toolbars if you don't check (these can be averted by unchecking them in the installer)

Summary

Looking pretty good

"Unacceptable installation"

August 31, 2013  |  By Oldblokesrock

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 4.0.4.0

Pros

It looks OK for the job, but uninstalled immediately

Cons

Any software that changes my internet options even though I declined the extra's license during installation is un-acceptable. I appreciate that they would like a return on their programming efforts, but this type of marketing is bordering on a con.

Summary

Please be aware that the software includes un-approved internet options changes & a constant "Black Bars Removal" advertisement on the main page. Not appropriate marketing.

"MALWARE!!! DO NOT INSTALL"

August 31, 2013  |  By ChicanerysMuse

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 4.0.4.0

Pros

There are no pros.

Cons

MALWARE, installs malware on the back end.

Summary

I just spent the past 12 hours cleaning my system because this POS software installed Conduit, MixiDJ and another bit of malware on my computer. So much for trusting positive reviews on this. At least on Divx you can uncheck "add conduit". this Crappy software blindly installs malware on the back end.
