Multimedia converters are widely employed today and for a good reason, as songs and clips come in a wide variety of containers, with equally diverse quality settings. For everything related to audio conversions, but also including video ripping tasks, MuvAudio presents a viable solution.
Convert songs to different formats, including MP3s
The program can load and process most common multimedia files, including videos in AVI, WMV, and MP4 formats; clips are supported, as the tool can rip audio from them, while for all other standard audio files the application provides adequate conversion options.
Lacking the ability to encode videos is somewhat of a letdown, more-so since it can rip audio from them. However, the program never set out to be a full multimedia converter and certain features still make it a powerful encoding solution. A notable option is the ability to scan entire folders for source documents; also, one can institute directory watches, thus automating the conversion tasks.
Process multiple files with a few mouse clicks
Once a valid target has been defined, all multimedia documents are loaded into the queue and users can batch process them with a few mouse clicks. Supported output formats include FLAC, MP3, WAV or OGG, and one also has the freedom to adjust quality settings, depending on the chosen file-types.
Several auxiliary options are available, including the ability to split tracks into multiple files of a user-defined length, as well as the ability to slow down or increase the playback speed of songs. Metadata information is preserved during conversion and the program integrates with the Windows Media Player to allow users to check their output tracks.
A good utility for batch audio conversions, with no support for video encodings
All things considered, MuvAudio is a simple, but practical tool for music aficionados who want to convert between various audio formats. Ripping soundtracks from videos is also supported and one can even change the playback speed of the output track. Batch processes are supported, but video encoding tasks are not.
