Weeny Free Video Converter
Weeny Free Video Converter is a simple-to-use application that allows you to turn video clips into WMV, AVI, MP4, 3GP and MPG, among other file types. But it can also extract the audio stream and save it to MP3, OGG, WAV, AAC and WMA, as well as prepare items for iPod, iPhone, PSP, Zune and DVDs.
The tool is wrapped in a user-friendly interface that allows you to import videos by using only the file browser because the "drag and drop" functionality is not included. It is possible to process multiple entries at the same time.
The file queue provides specific information on each item. This includes the name, duration, format, size, frames per second and status. Once you specify the output destination and profile, you can convert selected items and initialize the encoding operation with the default settings.
Advanced users can fiddle with the audio and video properties in regard to the codec, size, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and channel mode. But you can also disable the audio stream.
Furthermore, you can preview clips in a built-in media player and cut them by marking the start and end position. During the conversion procedure, the app can be set to automatically turn off the computer once all tasks are done. In the "Options" area you can specify the thread priority and set Weeny Free Video Converter to add the video codec name to the output filename.
The video processing program requires a moderate amount of CPU and system memory, in order to convert a video in reasonable time. Weeny Free Video Converter is very responsive and includes a brief help file. The output videos have a fair image and sound quality. On the downside, you cannot minimize the tool to the system tray or create output profiles.
