MediaConvert

CNET Editors' review

File converters have become pretty ubiquitous, as there are lots of different formats that work better in some contexts than others. Although converters with lots of options can be nice, we tend to favor the simple ones that cut right to the chase. Unfortunately, MediaConvert is a little too simple; its bare-bones interface leaves users guessing, and we're still not sure if we converted any files.

Most file converters follow the same basic conventions: choose the file you want to convert, select the output format and location, and the program does its thing. This is not the case with MediaConvert. Instead, the program presents two sets of identical radio buttons labeled AVI, FLV, MOV, MP3, MP4, and WAV. Below these is a button labeled Click Here to Convert. "Convert what?" we wondered, as we hadn't been given any opportunity to select a file. Clicking the button opened an Explorer window that let us navigate to some files, but clicking on one simply caused a black window to flash briefly, and that was it. Had our file converted? If so, where was it? We never did figure it out, and the program's complete lack of documentation kept us in the dark. MediaConvert also got the attention of our antivirus software, which is never a good sign. There are numerous other file converters out there that work without issues, and we recommend that you avoid MediaConvert and choose virtually any other alternative.
