Softpedia Editor's Review for 4Media FLV to MP4 Converter
Convert FLV files to MPEG-4, MOV, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC videos for MP4 players.
Written by Elena Opris on August 24th, 2012
4Media FLV to MP4 Converter is an application which allows you to encode FLV and SWF files to multiple formats, namely MP4, MP3, MOV, M4A and WAV. The tool can be seamlessly handled by all user levels.
The interface of the program is clean and intuitive. Video clips can be imported into the list by using either the file browser, treeview or "drag and drop" method. Batch processing is allowed.
In the queue you can read the name, duration, output target and size, along with status of each video. All you have to do is set the destination folder and file type, so that you can proceed with the conversion job.
Furthermore, you can change audio and video settings when it comes to the size, quality, channel mode, frame rate, aspect ratio, sample frequency rate and others.
But you can also preview clips in a small, built-in media player and take snapshots, split them by time or size, customize the CPU core number in use, set post-task actions (e.g. exit program, turn off computer), use a bit rate calculator, change the interface skin and language, enable 4Media FLV to MP4 Converter to run in the background, restore settings to their default values, and more.
The media conversion program takes up a pretty high amount of system resources, has a good response time, includes a brief help file for novices, quickly finishes a task and manages to preserve a good image and sound quality in the output videos. No errors have occurred during our testing and 4Media FLV to MP4 Converter did not freeze or crash. We highly recommend this program to all users, regardless of their experience level.
