Free video converter that will allow you to turn your videos into audio and vice versa or simply between file types of the same media format
MiniTool Video Converter is yet another app offering users video converting functionality. Unfortunately, not everything is ok about this application, especially when adjusting the size of the app window. With that in mind, the offered functionality could prove useful, but only if you haven’t yet decided on an app to satisfy your converting needs. A truly cool feature might be the direct online video download.
An application that could go unnoticed
Unfortunately, this application won’t surprise you at first, mostly because it looks just like any other converting app. You’ve got your drag and drop functionality, format and quality choices, and the conversion status bar. Yeah, you can convert all files at once, but so can other applications from this same area or class. You’ve got to keep digging if you want to find something special about this program. The scaling issues with the app window could only worsen things. Buttons sometimes go missing or overlap one another.
As far as options are concerned, you get to choose from a range of quality options that range from HD content to standard definition, with variation in size as well. Formats include the more popular ones like MP4, WMV, AVI, MP3 or OGG. These are but a few of the 1000 formats this app boasts to support. Another point the developers make is the fact that you can convert video to audio, if you want the sound without the extra bells and whistles.
The real surprise lies close enough
If you decide to switch tabs and check the “Video Download” section, you’ll be surprised to see a neat area where you can browse online for videos from your favorite source (YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion) and subsequently directly download these for offline use. It was really smart to include that type of functionality. Unfortunately, the window does seem a bit crooked, or at least it did while we browsed YouTube through it. Still, the time you save by directly downloading your favorite content from there could be enough to convince some.
MiniTool Video Converter is an application that most individuals will find to be lacking the sturdy structure you expect from conversion apps. The interface needs some tweaking while functionality could be improved. Aside from the minor aesthetic issues, the app is responsive and does not crash, not even when the interface is forced to display in a weird way.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used MiniTool Video Converter and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
