Editors' Review

Freemake Video Converter combines video editing and conversion into one well-built application. It features an attractive design, a large amount of supported file types, and a modest video editing tool that is engaging and enjoyable. You will not find many faults with this application.

Pros

Friendly, appealing interface: Nothing about this program is complicated or unattractive. Large banner buttons and step-by-step guidance make using Freemake Video Converter a breeze. We found that the contrasting color scheme was beneficial for locating key objects.

Excellent conversion: We converted a wide selection of files and observed that the average video conversion only took approximately 40 seconds to one minute. Freemake Video Converter supports almost every media file type imaginable and features conversion settings designed for specific devices.

Great tools: The built-in video editor is comparable to many other applications, and the slideshow feature is one of the best we've ever used. The ability to merge files before conversion is great and works wonderfully.

Cons

Slow ripping: We used the DVD ripping tool on Freemake and were a tad unsatisfied that it took over 30 minutes to rip an hour-long segment. This was a standard definition file, so ripping a larger, more defined DVD will likely take a considerable amount of time.

Bottom Line

Freemake Video Converter is one of the best applications we have encountered. It will suit nearly all of your needs, but we think adding a few more options would make it perfect. Ideally, we would like to see it include a free subtitle editor similar to that of Subtitle Edit. Nevertheless, this application is fully loaded, and we suggest you download Freemake Video Converter because it is the best on the market.

"Didn't upload the video correctly"

June 17, 2015

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 4.1.6.1

Pros

It's easy
It is apparently very safe
It would sure help me to watch things on my TV instead of the computer.

Cons

It seemed to download OK, but when I added a video, it came out on the disc as a double, side-by-side image. The sound worked, but it is an exercise video so was not helpful at all. I uninstalled Freemake and tried again - same problem. I wish it worked for me. Are there some videos that won't allow themselves to be copied?

"Just PERFECT video converter. And absolutely safe"

April 15, 2015  |  By Vicky8609

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 4.1.5.4

Pros

Just PERFECT video converter. And absolutely safe. I'm not sure where the other guys download Freemake Video Converter. I get it from Cnet. It's 100% safe. No malware or trojans.

Cons

A bit slow on DVD conversion. Probably my PC is getting old.

Summary

Good, feature-rich video converter. It can convert any online video to MP4 for offline playback.

"Great program until now-too much adware/PUPs"

March 10, 2015  |  By si

 |  Version: Freemake Video Converter 4.1.5.4

Pros

This program has been a favorite of mine for quite a while and always did a good job for my converting needs. But their monetizing scheme is out of control and extremely deceiving during installation.

Cons

"It does not have any hidden costs or intrusive advertising. " Not true! Even if you are very careful to uncheck all the crapware & monetizers during install, it still installs Rollaround Adware, which gives you tons of ad pop-ups.

Summary

Shame on you C|NET - your downloads are supposed to be free of this crap. And shame on the developer, for the stealth install of such CRAP!
