Free Video Converter 2.3
Quickly convert videos to a more useful format

Free Video Converter is an easy-to-use tool for converting videos between different formats.

The program installs without problems, and, unusually for this type of tool, doesn't attempt to install a host of browser toolbars (or any other unwanted extras).

A click of the "Add Files" button will then import source videos in all the major formats: 3GP, AVI, DPG, FLV, MKV, MOV, MP4, MPG, OGM, WEBM, WMV, VOB, and more. While a convenient Preview window shows you the currently selected clip, and allows you to trim unwanted footage from the start or end of the movie.

The Presets button displays your various output options. There are 1080i and 720p HD options if you're going to play the converted video on a computer, for instance; you're able to produce FLV files for the web in various quality settings; and there are links to create movies for various devices (the iPhone, iPod, iPad, Xbox 360, Android devices, the PSP or PS3), as well as just extract the soundtrack to an audio file.

But if you need more control, an Output Settings pane allows you to define codecs, resolution, frame rate, bit rate and more.

And when you're happy, clicking Convert will convert your videos accordingly.

The program has some irritations. When converting videos for use on a PC, for instance, we mostly like to keep the same resolution in the finished clip, but that doesn't seem possible here. The presets all have their own specific resolution, there's no "same as source" option.

Still, the program is fast, easy to use and with plenty of features, and if you've had issues with other video conversion tools then it may serve you well.

Verdict:

Free Video Converter is easy to use, and supports plenty of formats, but could still benefit from a few more conversion options

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
