If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to convert videos between formats on your Mac, Media Converter may be just the tool you have been looking for. Available completely free of charge, the app includes a number of presets that can be used to re-encode a wide range of video formats into other file types.

Using little more than drag and drop, the process of converting videos is a simple two step affair; simply select the conversion preset you would like to use and drag a video file onto the program window. As well as converting video files into another video format, it is also possible to opt to extract the audio and save this in a number of popular formats.

There are a range of presets built into the app that will cater for many eventualities, but there are more available for download from the Media Converter web site – again, these are free of charge. Anyone looking for quick results need not do anything more than select a preset, but more advanced users have the option of tweaking settings if desired.

In this way it is possible to customise the quality and size of a converted video, and it is even possible to convert videos into Flash files. The fact that there are so few options that need to be configured means that Media Converter is ideal for anyone who just needs to convert between formats, but the option of tweaking settings means that more demanding users can tailor the app to suit their needs.


An impressive app that makes light work of an otherwise complicated and time consuming task.
