Good free program for joining and converting video files

Good free program for joining and converting video files

Postby Berzerk » Sun Feb 25, 2018 4:06 pm

Was just wondering if anyone knows a good free video converter. What I am looking for is a converter that will join videos without sound issues or degradation and allow me to stretch standard video files to widescreen. The ones I have tried and list the issues. Freemake new free version burns a water mark in video also is getting plagued with malware. Handbrake just sucks completely does not convert videos good at all. Format Factory bad degradation to videos when joining files and can not figure out how to stretch the videos. Windows Media encoder takes to long and half the time does not work right files never want to play. Was just wonder what anyone else has tried and was easy to use and worked great.

I use Any Video Converter whenever I need to convert or join stuff together. It's free, of course, and as far as I can tell, the only time you get hit with an ad to buy the pro version is whenever your video is finished converting. But it doesn't leave any watermarks in the video or anything else.

The latest versions of super contain bundled crap,be careful you don't infect yourself.

videohelp.com for software & tuts
There'll most probably be issues with audio & video sync if the joined files never came from the same source material ?

I'm using FormatFactory for almost 5 years, but be careful because the installer is full of adware.

Leave alone Freemake (shit) and Format Factory
about instead Handbrake, trust me, is not user friendly at all, but if you manage it,
it's deep and professional ;)

Handbrake is one of the best video converters out there. Keep it in your arsenal and learn to use it correctly. It will stretch out videos from full to widescreen if you want it to. It is NOT a video editor/combiner though, so keep that in mind.

I remember SUPER used to be good, but that thing would phone home and not work if it detected there was a newer version available. Now it is just riddled with Digital AIDs and I wouldn't touch it either.
Aside from Windows Movie Maker/iMovie on Mac, all those others i was sketchy to download and try.
Still waiting for VLC to release their video editor they've been working on. If it's anything flexible like VLC, it will be the bomb. Until then, they need to hurry up, hahaha.

I forgot handbrake, which is the best software to convert 1080 and higher resolution videos.

If there no reason other than preference for mp4 then you'd most likely be better off with the mkv suite of tools:I personally think mp4 is a crap container & degradation is more when using it.However any compression to any video there will be a loss of quality unless you do 1:1..As for all in one programs,i haven't come across any i thought were any good,i have found specialist tools far better.

These can cut & join tho i've never done it
mkvtoolnix
mkv cleaver x64 (also 32bit)
gMKV Extract

Handbrake can do the stretch thingy.It most probably requires a bit more trial & error.I personally use vidcoder (a fork of handbrake,however it lets you set the file output size by gb,can't remember if HB does)

Handbrake doesn't join or cut video content and only coverts to mp4, m4v and mkv...but great at compressing file SIZES. Any video converter is the best at joining and conversion alot of file types. I use both, but avc hates some videos and won't work sometimes.

I am watching the videos through USB HDD connected to my Roku player the Roku media player is a little iffy with MKV so I have been playing it safe and using MP4. For any one that is interested in knowing for future reference the Roku works with a 5tb external HDD. I know some people like Plex but I am just one of those people who do not trust companies holding my converted videos one day get a letter saying I am being sued for copyright laws.

Avidemux is what I use for joining - it can do it without having to re-convert the video so it's very quick and doesn't add its own compression artifacts.

It can convert as well, but I use a cracked copy of WonderSoft HD Video Converter Pro if I want to do that because it has all the features I want and it's easy to use. It also has one of the cleverest compression algorithms I've ever used - I've shrunk video file sizes by up to 80% with no noticeable reduction in quality.
