Any Video Converter Pros & Cons

This is one of my favorite video converters, for the reasons you'd expect:

Pros

  • Supports a huge variety of input formats
  • Lets you add effects to the video before converting it
  • Works with Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, and XP

Cons

  • Asks to buy AVC Pro after converting every file
  • Tries to install additional software during setup

Any Video Converter Features

  • Any Video Converter supports a wide range of video formats, making it simple to convert video files to be playable on any device
  • If you don't know what video format to convert the file to so that it's usable on a specific device, Any Video Converter provides a list of devices that you can pick from
  • Videos can be converted to not only other video file formats but also to audio file formats
  • Multiple videos can be merged together and converted to a single file
  • Supports converting YouTube videos directly from the website, meaning you could even use AVC has a free YouTube to MP3 converter. Other URLs are supported, too (see them all here)
  • A built-in editor lets you add subtitles and clip, crop, and rotate videos, as well as adjust the brightness, contrast, and saturation. There are even effects you can apply to your videos, like noise, sharpen, pixel, black and white, vertigo, gamma, and several others
  • Any Video Converter also has a Play Video tab that functions as a regular video player. It opens files, folders, discs, and ISO images
  • The DVD burning feature lets you burn videos to a disc, but many of the DVD menu options that are seen in the free version of Any Video Converter are not actually usable unless you pay for an upgraded version of the software. There's one DVD menu option available in the free edition and you can make the video fit to the disc and edit the video and audio settings (and even add a separate audio file to replace the video's audio)
  • DVDs can be converted, too, but only if you insert the disc into your computer. The DVD folder and ISO image converting features are not available in the free version
  • In the program settings are options to change the output folder for where converted videos should go. You can also modify the number of videos that AVC is allowed to convert at once (up to 5) and change lots of default audio and video settings, as well as toggle various other options, like for the program to shut down your computer when it's done converting

My Thoughts on Any Video Converter

Any Video Converter supports more input video formats than any other video converter program I've used. While testing the program, it seemed to convert quickly and without any troubles.

The worst thing I experienced with Any Video Converter is that it constantly nags you to purchase the professional version for more features. While it's easy to exit the prompt, it still occurs far too often.

Note: If you're asked to download something during setup that you don't want, just uncheck the box before clicking Next. Otherwise, it will install with Any Video Converter and you'll have to uninstall it later if you don't want it.
