"Free convert video to any format in real time"

Overview

MacX Video Converter Free Edition is a free conversion package that can be used to solve many issues with movie and music files.

The software can convert between MP4, MKV, AVI, FLV, MPEG, and MOV movie files. The conversion process can switch between HD and SD formats to reduce the file size of movie files and movie clips ready for viewing on a smaller device like a gaming console, tablet or smartphone. Alternatively converted video files can be uploaded online as smaller files to save bandwidth.

Video files can be converted for playback specifically for certain devices like the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3, Apple TV 3, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, Surface Pro 3, and PS4.

Movie files can also be converted to MP3 files with the audio stripped out for easier playback later in an audio file player.

A series of photos pulled from different sources can be combined into a single video which can be later saved as a MP4, MOV or FLV video ready to share with friends or on a YouTube channel.

Work with video to crop out or trim their shape and visual size. Add a protective watermark to indicate the true source of the recording. Change encoded information like frame rate, resolution, sample rate, bit rate, and more.
