editor's review





Format Converter X for Windows 8 is a lightweight application designed specifically for Windows 8 users in order to help them perform audio and video conversion tasks using batch processing.

Simple looks

The tool reveals a straightforward layout that does not overwhelm you with tons of features and settings. A help manual is not included in the package but you can digest the program’s features on your own.

Audio conversion options

Format Converter X for Windows 8 allows you to convert audio and video files to different file formats, such as AAC, WMA, MP3, WMV, or MP4. In addition, it gives you the possibility to extract audio data from video files.

It comes with support for batch processing, which means you can add multiple files and convert them at the same time to the desired output format.

The application lets you browse throughout your computer for the items that you want to convert and build up a list with items. You can pick the output format for each file, adjust the quality, as well as pick the saving directory.

A few configuration settings allow you to set a default saving directory or make the program export audio files to Music Library and clips to Video Library. Tests have shown that Format Converter X for Windows 8 carries out the conversion process pretty quickly. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.

Bottom line

All things considered, Format Converter X for Windows 8 embeds only basic audio and video conversion tasks. Advanced features are missing from the package, such as custom tweaks (e.g. bitrate, number of channels, FPS) and support for more audio formats not just the most popular ones.  You should know that the trial version allows you to convert a single file per day.
