Over the last year or so, I have been recommending a free video conversion program in our forums called Video to Video. It is a GUI for the open source project, FFmpeg, a tremendously versatile, cross platform program, designed to work with virtually any video and audio codec. Video to Video provides a convenient way of working with FFmpeg, and puts that powerful conversion engine under your control.
In this review I hope to hit some of the highlights of the program, though I will not be able to cover all of its capabilities without writing a small novel. That’s not going to happen, so if there is any part of the program you wish to discuss, please feel free to add your comments at the end of the review.
We’ll start with the Video to Video website: http://www.videotovideo.org/
You can download and use this program for free. There are no strings attached, and no “add-ons” to be wary of in the installer. Two versions are available, one which installs into your Programs list in a normal fashion, and another version which is a portable, “stand-alone” program, that runs from within the folder you place it in.
