Many users are constantly searching for either premium or free video converters online for tons of different tasks. Some people want to convert content to playback on their respective portable devices such as tablets and smartphones. Others may want to bring content back and forth from physical media to digital media or the other way around. Movavi Video Converter attempts to bring video conversion to the masses in an easy tool that is has some sour points and some pluses based on our experience with the trial version.
We were happy to see a wide selection of compatibility with reading various video formats that include AVI, WMX, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPEG4, DVD, IFO, VOB, AC3, 3GPP, 3GPP2, ASF, FLV, and WMV. We found this could be very useful for our video editing work for our YouTube videos. Some of the camcorders we use only record videos to formats that our video editing program will not read. So we have had to use other third-party solution in the past for converting our files into a format that would play nice with our video editing tool. Movavi actually had a better interface than what we had been used to, in terms of more choices and fast navigation.
There were some very useful tools that we found in this converter such as the ability to capture still images from video content that would be helpful, especially to a technology website like TekGoblin where we review tons of stuff on video and could use a bunch of good still shots of the products we reviewed. We would not have to take more time shooting actual stills with a camera as we could just capture them from the video we recorded already. While I think the video conversion time could use a bit more speed, it still completes a good rendering.
The converter also allows for some basic editing functions in addition to conversion that may allow users to ditch having to use another program for editing if they just need some simple stuff done to the video or audio being converted. Users will be able to cut, merge, crop, apply filters, rotate, and even watermark content. This is a far cry from what you get with Microsoft Windows Live Movie Maker that comes stock with most PCs. There is support for Multi-GPU NVIDIA CUDA technology to allow users to take advantage of an SLI setup with this application and will allow users to do the unthinkable by being able to convert more than one video at a time. We are on the verge of building a new Extreme PC build over here at TekGoblin and we are glad to see that Movavi will also support hyper-threading technology that comes packed on Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors that allows more than one process to run just as smoothly as another simultaneously.
