Free FLV to MOV Converter is a simple-to-use application designed to help you modify the format of Flash and MPEG video files into multiple extensions, including MP4, AVI and MOV. It can also extract the audio stream and save it to WMA, WAV, AC3 and other sound types, as well as prepare files for PSP, iPhone, iPod, Xbox, Zune and more devices.
The interface of Free FLV to MOV Converter is clean and pretty intuitive. Media files can be added to the file queue by using only the file browser, since the "drag and drop" function is not supported. It is possible to work with multiple entries at once.
In the list you can read the source and output name and type, along with play time and estimated size of each media file. If you prefer the default settings, then you can immediately proceed with the conversion task by selecting the output profile and directory.
On the other hand, you can customize audio and video preferences in reference to the encoder, frame rate, resolution, bit rate, channel mode and frequency rate.
Additionally, you can merge all videos into one file, open the output directory and remove an item from the list. During the encoding procedure, you can check out the progress on the current and all tasks. This operation can be paused.
The video conversion tool takes a reasonable amount of time to finish a task while using moderate CPU and system memory. No errors have occurred during our testing and Free FLV to MOV Converter did not freeze or crash. Its response time is good and program hints are displayed throughout the "Settings" area. The quality of the output media files is preserved at a fair level.
