Eight free applications to convert audio and video


Currently, a large number of audio and video formats circulate on the Internet. The list of formats is such that it is often necessary to have certain codecs to be able to watch movies, videos or even listen to songs. Even the videos we see on YouTube are shown in a different format than the most popular ones we usually use (AVI or MP4) . We bring you a list with eight different applications or tools to be able to perform the video or audio conversion , along with their corresponding download link.

1. Zamzar . I have always been admired for the simplicity and speed with which this tool works, which also does not require us to perform any type of installation on the computer. Zamzar works with a good number of multimedia formats, including video or audio formats like MP3. MP4, AVI, WAV ... Without a doubt, it is a very interesting option to carry out our occasional conversion tasks, although it can lose appeal if we want to carry out the conversions more continuously.

2.  Free Audio Converter from DVDVideoSoft . We have already talked to you previously in Your Expert about this free application that allows you to convert various music files into other formats. It has a fairly simple interface and its performance is quite good. It works with files like  MP3, WAV, OGG, FLAC or Windows Media Audio ( WMA ).

Without a doubt, one of the most complete and functional is aTube Catcher, which is also capable of directly downloading the sound of the videos to save it in the preferred format.

7. Youconvertit . Another of the online tools that we want to download together with Zamzar. Although it has a good level of performance, we have found that this tool is below Zamzar both in the interface and in the advertising assault that we have to endure every time we go to make a conversion.

8. xMedia Recode. In the case that we want to have a more complete and professional tool, an interesting option is xMedia Recode. This program has a less intuitive interface but with an important number of options to work with the conversion of videos and games.
