By | February 24, 2012

In this article, I’d like to review 5 excellent free video converters one by one. You can find your favorite one to fit your video conversion needs.

Clone2Go Free Video Converter

Clone2Go Free Video Converter is a great looking video converter that can handle most video formats and convert them for playback on your mobile, PSP or other mobile devices.

Clone2Go Free Video Converter has a clear interface with big, obvious buttons for ‘Add Video’ and ‘Encode’ and so on. There is an inbuilt window for viewing video, and a frame including all the encoding (converting) settings.

Videos for conversion can be added using the Add Video button, or just by dragging and dropping the files into the Clone2Go window.

The feature I’d like to highlight is the ability to download and convert YouTube video. Just click the ‘YouTube” button to do that.

K-Lite is a very powerful tool for editing video files. It supports almost every type of video file as input. It can do lots of things: cut, remux, convert, etc. It contains its own decoders and encoders for all common audio and video formats, so it does not need any external codecs.


Hamster Video Converter

Hamster Free Video Converter is an easy-to-use video converter with a cute but functional interface.

Hamster Free Video Converter has a simple three-step conversion process. First import your original video file, choose an output format or from a range of device profiles then hit convert.

The most striking thing about Hamster Free Video Converter is the bright, modern interface. While it’s not standard, it is bold and attractive. You can choose almost any color using the theme slide, so it fits with your Windows color scheme.

The only problem with Hamster Free Video Converter is if you click How to Use or the Tips button, you are taken to a web page, and it insists on opening Internet Explorer even if that’s not your preferred choice.

Free Studio (previously known as Free Studio Manager) is an excellent conversion app that bundles multiple converters into one handy program so that when it comes to converting files from one format to another, you can save time instead of searching around for the right tool each time.

Whether you’re listening to music on your iPod, burning home movies to DVD or messing around with videos from YouTube, you’ll probably have to change format at least once or twice. It’s in situations like this that Free Studio can help you out.
