Nice program, but it is not "Freeware". Most useful features have now been disabled until you pay for it. At the very best it is "Crippleware", at worst only a Demo. You can get around this by using ver 18.104.22.168 or earlier.

This is a great program. I used it before and unlike other none-free converters it will sync video and sound perfectly during conversion.
And unlike what some people say It does not force you to install anything except the program itself. I update it regularly and no Spyware/Adware on my computer. But it is only Internet Installer, that is true. If you are tech savvy, you can copy actual downloaded installation file for further use.
One star deduction for fileforum itself. Download link points to the older version of the program.

Dont like the fact the download isnt the actual installer, but a downloader itself.
which includes bloatware, aka files not required by the program but further addons like smileys. why?
real installer is around 20mb and also includes bloatware, spyware, whatever you want to call it, yes it can be disabled before installing.
Havent actually used the program yet but for the above alone i'm giving it a low score.

This is a good video converter which can convert video files or DVD into almost any format of your choice. Some notes:
-During installation, choose the "custom" install option and uncheck any toolbars you don't want installed
- Output quality depends on the quality of the source file and encoding bitrate. If you allow Freemake video converter to download directly from YouTube, your output may not be optimal. It seems to default downloading YouTube streams as 360P source files, even if a higher 480P, 720P or 1080P is available for the same YouTube video. I recommend to download the source file first using Freemake video downloader (at the highest bitrate available) and then converting using Freemake video converter.
As for encoding bitrate, for most purposes "auto" is best. However I've found encoding at H.264/768kbps a good compromise to achieve smaller file sizes at acceptable video quality.
The sister program "Freemake video downloader" allows you to download the source file at the highest bitrate allowed.
-Sometimes video converted directly from DVD contains scenes that drop in framerate during playback. If so, try to rip DVD locally first before conversion.
