FVC Free Online Video Converter is a web-based multimedia converter tool that converts almost all the popular video and audio formats to the output format of your choice. Even though it is a web-based application, still it supports batch conversion of video files, which I think is the USP of this online tool. This web-based tool is more powerful than it may seem as it does not limit itself to conversion task only but also allows its users to customize the video using the handy editing tools.
Let's get quickly started with its review that will help you in choosing to use this free online video converter utility. We will go step by step with images for uses to get a feel of the entire conversion process and make their experience hassle-free.
How does the FVC Free Online Video Converter Work?
It is an online tool hence there is no need to explain that a good internet connection will be required to get the desired task done in a jiffy. It supports popular video formats like MP4, FLV, WMA, MOV, TS, M2TS, MP3, etc., on Windows as well as Mac.
The conversion process is as simple as Adding the video file, choosing the output format, and then start converting.
To begin converting any video of your choice start opening the FVC Free Online Video Converter page and clicking the "Add Files to Convert" button. Once you click the button a pop-up will come asking you to install a small FVC launcher program of hardly 1MB size. See the image below.
Click to download and then continue to install. It will get installed within a few seconds and once installed a simple interface with "Add files" option will appear on your screen.
Now you can add single as well as multiple files for conversion to the desired format of your choice. Not to forget that audio files are also supported, so if in case an audio file needs to be converted then the option is available for you.
You have the option to convert your video file to the following formats: MP4, MOV, MKV, AVI, M4V, FLV, WMV, WEBM, VOB, MPG, 3GP, and also GIF. If you wish to upload a video to YouTube or Facebook, then that option is also provided here under the choice of the output format.
Once you are done with adding and selecting the output format of your choice you can continue with the final step of converting it. Just press the convert button at the right bottom corner and it will ask you to select the location of the final output, and once selected the process will begin.
To add to my surprise this online video converter offered video and audio settings editing at the time of converting any video or audio. Option to edit the video bitrate, sample, frame rate, and resolution was available for video, and for audio settings bitrate, sample, and volume editing was made available. The video quality and audio quality was lossless and hardly a difference can be found by an average user.
I found this free online tool pretty good for the following reasons.
Ease of use: Not only the UI of this online tool is clean and smooth but also the conversion process is only a three-step process, requiring very little or no expertise to get your video/audio file converted like a pro.
No Watermark: Even though a free utility, it does not affix a watermark to the output video after converting. This is one of the best features found in this web-based video converter. I have previously used free apps and software that leave their impression as watermark in the video if, used for free.
Editing feature: The editing feature of this online free video converter may be limited but still provides sufficient options to make basic edits in the video as well as audio.
Retains quality: This online tool retains the original quality of video/audio and gives a lossless output to the user.
One of the drawbacks which almost all the user will feel when converting a big size video or audio file. Even during batch conversion, this drawback will be felt. No doubt the processing is pretty fast and smooth, still, a big file upload will be a bit slow unless you have good speed broadband with no limit to data consumption.
Another drawback is the quality of the video output format that one will get is limited to 1080p HD. The best quality available is 4000p UHD, but one should not expect more than this from a free online video converter.
