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.


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.


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.

many formats supported


ads during the installation


I've been using this software for years and I simply adore it. It can easily convert videos to most popular formats. I often convert videos to watch them on my iPad while travelling and this tool helps me a lot.

"A tool as I wish"

Simple and user-friend
Downloading & converting almost everything
Double-pass option works perfect


I wish I could part a single file (over 4gb) in to two volumes to overcome fat32 issue.
It gets stuck sometimes after the second file if several files lined in sequence

"Installs but can't find vids"

August 05, 2016  |  By skaizun

Absolutely none


CPU hog; adds Chromium (presumably, a scaled-down version of Chrome) without permission; changes other browsers' "home" URL without permission; can't find vid I want to download


The program had a button for me to paste an URL, so, I copy-pasted the page I was at (a children's website with Flash vidz), and it said something to the effect, "run the vid so I can find it." I did. It didn't. So, I went to YouTube, and it had the same problem. I tried it with IE and Firefox and even its installed-without-permission Chromium, which wouldn't run Flash vidz, and has no way to add the plug-in, that I can tell. So, "10,000 sites" including YouTube, but, it was 0-for-2 for me, so I removed it from my computer, along with the useless Chromium. I hope it didn't make other changes to my browser or computer without my permission.

"Used to be great"

Simple interface, lots of options


Video conversions fail partially through but show false completion, audio and video misaligned


I've used Freemake for years. In the past 6 months I've had loads of problems with videos failing before completion for no apparent reason but still showing as completed (I have to open each video file and preview it to be sure I've actually gotten the whole thing), and all videos not aligning audio and video properly. I don't know what they've changed but it's pretty annoying to wait an hour per movie to find that it didn't work.
