Total Video Converter transforms the complex process of converting media into another format without the use of technical jargon or complicated steps.

Since the introduction of digital media, how we interact and enjoy our favorite forms of entertainment has never been the same. However, if you’ve ever had to convert media file formats then you understand how this process quickly devolves our happy thoughts toward digital media.

Converting media formats is a notorious complicated, and frustrating, experience. Whether you’re trying to convert DVD formats or your favorite music album, the process typically requires hours of trial-and-error. Thankfully, Total Video Converter came into the scene. Within matter of a few clicks, it’s possible to convert a variety of media formats without the frustration, and time commitment, of traditional methods.

The Power of Conversion - Features

Total Video Converter is just that. Within a standalone program, it’s capable of totally converting almost every type of media format. Its advanced programming is compatible with most forms of video, audio and image files. So what does this mean for you?

Perhaps its most popular feature is its mobile conversion package. Convert all major media formats into the preferred mobile format. Now you can download your favorite movie, TV show or music album to your smartphone without having to purchase additional media formats.

Although the use of DVDs is slowly on the decline, if you’re clinging onto this media format, then you’ll love Total Video Converter’s MPEG video conversion. Perfect streamline large media files to the standardized format favored by DVD/VCD/SVCD. Simplicity is the name of the game when it comes to this program. Within the same interface, burn the newly created file directly to your DVD/VCD/SVCD.

Through its primary interface, combine multiple audio and video files into a single file format, which is referred to as Multiplex within the program. Want to extract specific files from the aggregated file? No problem! Simply click the Demultiplex option to extract individual files.

Along with its powerful converting capabilities, Total Video Converter can record your desktop activity. This is an awesome feature if you create step-by-step guides for personal or professional reasons.

Unlike similar media file converters, Total Video Converter also acts as a basic video editor. While its editing capabilities aren’t as powerful as pro video editor programs, it’s more than capable for simple editing tasks. Of course, once you’re done editing the video, you can convert it to your desired file format or burn it to a DVD or Blu-Ray.

Ultimately, Total Video Converter is ideal for those looking for consumer-level converting capabilities. While not the most powerful converter on the market, its solid features, stable architecture and simplistic interface makes it a popular choice for basic-level tasks.

  • Massive library of acceptable media file formats

  • Extended features and tools

Cons:

  • Converting large media files can take a long time
  • Editing platform may not be suitable for more advanced tasks

Total Video Converter is a program that takes any video file and converts it to another type of file. This conversion can come in handy for creating files that can be played on portable media devices such as a tablet or smartphone. The program can also be used to extract audio from a video file to be played back as an audio only file. The most common use for a video converter is to convert larger video files taken from a camera or phone to be uploaded to the internet. Larger files tend to take much longer to upload than smaller ones and some websites have size limits. Converting down allows for greater compression which makes the file size smaller.

Using Total Video Converter

The program is fairly straight forward and easy to use. You can either browse for files using the program or drag-and-drop them directly from your computer. You choose a destination location where the new file will be saved, choose the type of file you want to convert, then press the convert button on the top of the window. The display shows conversion statistics such as time and percentage as well as the difference in size. You can convert multiple files at once by creating a list. This is done by placing multiple files into the conversion window.

Types of Conversions

There is a rather substantial list of recommended pre-set conversions. These are represented by the type of device you intend on viewing the file. These settings are recommended settings and can be adjusted as needed. You can also create conversion profiles and save them to suit your needs. Multiple formats are supported, including converting MKV files to MP4.

Supported formats:

Vídeo: RMVB, RM, MP4, 3GP, 3G2, PSP, MKV, MPG, MPEG, VOB, DVB, ASF, WMV, AVI, FLV, FLI, FLC, GIF and DV.

Audio: CDA, FLAC, MP3, MP2, RA, WAV, WMA, Ogg, AMR, AC3, AU and SWF.

Editing Tools

Total Video Converter has a wide range of editing tools that allow you to chop, mix, and merge video files to be converted into a single video of your choosing. While this is convenient, it does tend to bog down a computer. The video editing tools only make this worse, which renders those tools practically useless. The video preview option also puts a strain on the system, causing the program to crash or freeze up. Your success rate greatly depends on the computer that you are using, but after doing a test of the program using a Windows7 64-bit laptop with 16 GB of memory and an Intel i5 -2.33ghz processor, system resources would still get locked up.

Overall Assessment

For a free video conversion program, this software is effective. It supports numerous formats and converts quickly. This is at the expense of system resources making the ability to multitask while converting nearly impossible.

Pros

  • Supports various formats
  • Drag and drop file management
  • Quick conversions

Cons

  • Drains system resources
  • Editing tools useless
  • Regular crashing and freezes
