31 Free Video Converter Programs and Online Services

Freeware Video Converters for MP4, AVI, MPEG, FLV, MOV, WMV, 3GP, SWF and More!

A video converter is a specialized file converter that allows you to convert one kind of video format (like an AVI, MPG, MOV, etc.) into another. If you've found yourself unable to use a certain video in the way you wanted because the format wasn't supported, a free video converter can help.

Important: Every video converter program listed below is freeware - no shareware or trialware here. I also haven't listed any video converters that trim or watermark videos.

Here's a list of the best free video converter software and free online video converters available today:

Any Video Converter

It doesn't matter what operating system you use with Online Converter (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, etc.) because it just requires a functional browser.

Something I don't like about Free Audio Video Pack is that you must know the format of the source video file before converting it, which is an extra step than most other video converter programs.

Free Audio Video Pack can be installed to Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, and Windows Server 2008 and 2003.

Quick Media Converter supports many file formats and the program makes it simple to know which format works on different devices.

The program is a bit difficult to navigate because you must hover your mouse over the different menu buttons to know what they are for. However, the vast file types that are allowed make up for this faulty design.

Input Formats: 3G2, 3GP, AVI, DTS, DV, DLV, GXF, M4A, MJ2, MJPEG, MKV, MOV, MP4, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, MVE, OGG, QT, RM and others you can find at Cacoon Software’s Supported Formats page.

FileZigZag Review and Link

Considering the fact that many video files are pretty large, the biggest disadvantage with FileZigZag is the wait time to upload the video and receive your email. 

FileZigZag works with all operating systems that support a web browser, like Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

Zamzar Review and Link

The worst thing about Zamzar is their 100 MB limit for source files which is a significant drawback considering the large size of most video files. I also found Zamzar's conversion time a bit slow, even for an online video converter service.

Because it works online, Zamzar can be used with any OS that runs a web browser.
