Part 2 - Is There Any Room for Improvement?

Microsoft video converter (Free) for Windows 10 lives up to its promise to do the video conversion job. Yet, that's not enough. Grounded on the users' reviews, there is still room for improvements concerning conversion success rate, output formats, resulting quality and more. Get down to the nitty gritty:

Users' reviews come from its official product webpage on Microsoft. It's rated 3.8 out of 10 based on 237 users. From the reviews displayed currently, there are 28 positive reviews (4 or 5 stars) and 25 negative reviews (3, 2 or 1 star(s)).

1. Conversion success rate: six users complain that Microsoft video converter doesn't work or crashed after upgrading to paid version.
2. Output formats: this tool is unable to convert video to MP3, MOV, WMV, etc. More than 4 users gripe about this.
3. Speed: they point out that this software seemingly takes forever to transcode video files. Too slow to bear!
4. Resulting quality: the common quality issues lie in blurry outputs and video audio out of sync, which make files unusable.
5. 8K resolution: it only lets you export files up to 4K 2160p, 8K unsupported right now.
