I have used Freemake for the past six months and I have to tell you that it is just fantastic! Freemake prides itself on designing free software which offer quality alternatives to paid products. And the best of all is that this video converter is freeware in the truest sense of the word: no adware, no spyware, no online registration! This would be in my opinion a great product to include in your Library PACs. Patron's would love it.
Freemake Video Converter accepts virtually any video file you can dream of as an input: AVI, MP4, MKV, WMV, MPG, 3GP, 3G2, SWF, FLV, TOD, AVCHD, MOV, DV, RM, QT, TS, MTS, and many more. It can also import music (MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV), and photos (JPG, BMP, PNG,GIF) to turn them into video. It can output files as AVI, WMV, MP4, MKV, SWF, MPG, 3GP or MP3 and it allows you to upload your videos to YouTube or just burn them to DVD.
You can edit your videos and cut, join, rotate and limit your output size of your videos and it allows you to take total control of the output result by customizing conversion parameters by establishing video and audio codecs, frame size, frame rate, sample size, and sample rate.
One of the latest features in version 3.11 is its ability to have very fast video encoding and less CPU usage due to the integrated of CUDA technology.This will help anyone with a modern NVidia card to convert videos quickly.
So go out and download this program here (http://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter/) as I highly recommend it.
