VidConvert for Mac

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Apr 10, 2013

The number of video conversion programs available makes choosing a good one difficult. Though it's basically functional, the lack of features and problematic setup make VidConvert for Mac a less desirable option.

VidConvert is available as a free trial version with a three-minute conversion time limit; the full, unrestricted program requires payment of $7.99. The program installs quickly. Unfortunately, after initiating the program, the user must complete an additional download from a separate site before conversion can take place. This second download requires Terminal operations, which is a lot to ask of all but the most experienced Mac users. Once set up, VidConvert for Mac provides a rather plain yet easy-to-use interface, which is good, since there are no user instructions available. Technical support also doesn't seem to be an option if the user has any difficulties. In terms of operation, users can click and drag files for converting or select them, manually. Once they're entered, a drop-down menu allows selection of the output format by device. The actual file conversion took as long as would be expected and the output matched the original file in terms of quality.

While it performs its basic functions well, VidConvert for Mac's complicated setup and basic features leave much to be desired for this type of program.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of VidConvert for Mac 1.4.2.
