Media Converter For OS X Is The Simplest Video Converter Around

Mac OS X: If you need to convert a video for your iPod, a DVD or even just rip the audio out of a movie, free app Media Converter will do it with just a quick drag-and-drop.

Previously mentioned Handbrake is usually our go-to video converting program, but if you don’t need to use all of its advanced features, it doesn’t get any simpler than Media Converter. In fact, it’s especially good for your DVD-burning, iPod-weilding relatives and friends that are too intimidated by Handbrake’s advanced interface: you just pick a file format from the dropdown menu, drag in a video file, and you’re done. It will immediately start converting the file for you and alert you when it’s finished. Literally, the only way it could be simpler was if it read your mind.

Media Converter is a free download for Mac OS X. We’ve yet to see a Windows program that was quite this simple, but something like Quick Media Converter or the no-fuss Hamster are probably good bets.

  • Freemake for Windows is the easiest converter I come across (which unfortunately is a lot). Heaps of options, almost every codec imaginable supported, and facebook/twitter integration too if that tickles your fancy.

  • for Windows and iPod/iPhone/iPad- iPodME has been converting movies for me seamlessly for the last 18 months – Drag and drop – remembers last save directory – optimised resolutions for i-Devices
    converts with either speed or quality settings. Essential program 🙂
