Different from media player, a media converter should mean a video converter, music converter, YouTube converter, and even DVD/Blu-ray converter that allows incompatible media formats to be accepted by different player programs, platforms, devices (say, tablets and smartphones).
As the diversification of enjoying movies and music is in rising trend, a moribund and bewildering media coder should be wed out. The following three media converters are singled out based on their user operability, media formats compatibility and so on and so forth.
WinX Media Converter
WinX Media Converter is a stunner free video file converter capable of tackling a boatload of SD/HD videos, such as AVI, MP4, H.264, WMV, MPEG, FLV, MOV, 3GP, QT, TS, MOD, TOD.

Freemake Video Converter
Many users settled on Freemake mostly for its stylish interface and 200 input formats. Yes, it can converts the media files made into AVI, MP4, MKV, WMV, MPEG, AVCHD, MOV, DV, RM, QT FLV and MTS video formats, MP3, AAC, WMA and WAV audio formats, JPEG, BMP, PNG and GIF image formats, etc. But Freemake does add some limitations on the extra features, such as Freemake subtitles function and individual conversion profiles. Worse still, it may modify internet browser settings. Whether it is the same in the advanced edition of Freemake media converter or the alternative for mac?
HandBrake is a very widely used multimedia converter, or more accurately, an open-source multi-platform transcoding program. We are impressed by its availability for Windows, Mac and Ubuntu. It boasts a wide range of software packages for ripping and converting media files for playback on number of popular devices. However, it is not easy to use and intuitive enough for most less advanced users, offering too many dizzy customizable options. Moreover, the third-party libraries such as x264, Libav and FAAC, instead of self-governed codecs, it use are unfortunately to be removed due to licensing issues. To this end, people are turning to the alternatives to Handbrake or Handbrake nightly.
From the previous review, WinX Media Converter is unbeatable in some sense. Now let's get on board with this free video converter by learning converting a video by use of it.
