The Freemake Video Converter for Windows can display media files and convert videos with different file formats. Freemake’s software offers CUDA support, a firing function and a cutting program for this purpose.
IMPORTANT NOTEThe freeware setup program may install additional software on your computer. Therefore, make sure during the installation that there are no fields that can be used to prohibit the installation of additional programs. The additional software is downloaded over the Internet and can therefore not be checked by us for viruses, spyware, Trojans or other malware.
If your antivirus software sounds an alarm, please take it seriously. In this case, cancel the installation or try again later.
Unfortunately, some adware installs itself unsolicited. If there is unwanted or harmful software on the computer despite your caution, AdwCleaner or CCleaner may be able to help. You can find more recommendations in our Special Adware & Remove Spyware section.
The video software knows the common codecs MPEG-4, H.264 and ACC, which support numerous video players. For the conversion not only the codec is interesting, but also the used file format. The Freemake Video Converter can handle formats like WMV, 3GP, SWF, MKV, AVI and MP4 and understands the compression of Apple, Android, Sony PSP, Xbox, Samsung, Xiaomi, Nokia and Huawei for which there are predefined profiles. This is important if you want to play videos on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones or on Playstation consoles. The Freemake Video Converter software offers batch processing for the conversion. The converter converts several multimedia files in one go and saves time.
Whether Youtube videos or those from Vimeo, Facebook and Dailymotion: The Freemake Video Converter can download and save multimedia files. It also extracts the audio track if desired, so that you can, for example, save the contained music in a file independently of the video and later listen to it from your MP3 player or smartphone.
HD, DVD, CD and Blu-ray Discs
Freemake Video Converter offers a burning function to save videos to DVD, CD and Blu-ray Discs. In addition, the freeware can rip DVDs, CDs and Blu-ray Disks and save the videos while preserving subtitles. Besides Full HD with 720p or 1080p also 4K is supported in the current version.
Since recordings are not always as you would like them to be, the Freemake Video Converter can cut, rotate and combine multiple clips into one. Videos and music in MP3 format can also be uploaded to YouTube.
No freeware, but demo version
The demo version includes a watermark of the manufacturer in the output videos and asks for the purchase of the software. Moreover, conversion is slow and limited in scope.
Alternative Software to Freemake Video Converter
The Freemake Video Converter is not the only converter. Therefore, there are numerous alternative software that also converts video files, although the range of functions may differ. Even the VLC media player offers a function to convert and save videos. YouTube-DLG, which uses the YouTube-DL converter software, is also suitable for downloading YouTube videos. The open source software FFmpeg includes video codecs and offers commands to convert videos on the command line. More alternative video converters are available from us under “Category > Video > Video Converter”. You may need to use additional software to edit and burn video files.
