I have a problem. It’s called technology change. That’s right. Tech changes over time. We see it all around us. I once had music records, then switched to music CDs, then music and movie DVDs, and now everything is digital. I once owned a mountain of VHS tapes, then switched to a collection of DVDs, and now everything is digital downloads or streaming.
That means we have umpteen dozen different file formats to deal with, particularly on video. How can you manage all those video formats? MacX Video Converter Pro is a Mac utility that converts video from one format to another.
What kinds of video formats?
How about all of them that matter?
Convert 4K, H.265, HD, SD videos to popular video formats for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Android, and Windows, to mention a few. That means you can Download, Compress, Cut/Trim/Merge/Crop, Capture and Record Videos with little more than a few clicks.
To extend that list you can also convert 4K, HD videos to MP4, AVI, MKV, FLV, MOV, each device, plus transcode H.265 HEVC to H.264 and back again.
Not shabby, right?
Plus, there’s an added bonus that fits into today’s trend of pulling higher quality videos from YouTube, Facebook, and over 1,000 other websites. Even YouTube MP3 music can be converted to MP4. The app has a built-in option to capture your Mac’s screen, too, turn photos into a slideshow movie, then, if you’re ready, trim and merge, crop or delete, even add sub-titles to videos.
If your Mac has hardware acceleration built-in, everything works faster.
Most of us who have edited video on the Mac have a number of utilities that go beyond iMovie or Final Cut Pro. These are the conversion utilities that make quick work of converting videos, ripping music from one file format and converting to another, and doing, well, utility-like work without firing up the big guns. That’s what MacX Video Converter Pro is.
Convert just about every video file format anyone uses today and many from yesteryear.
Download videos from YouTube, Facebook, and elsewhere to save or edit. Record videos of the Mac’s screen, make slideshows, trim or merge videos, even add sub-titles. With the right hardware-accelerated Mac, the app can convert a 60-minute video in just minutes.
The trial version is free but is limited to five minutes of use; mostly enough time to try the basic features. The full version of MacX Video Converter Pro is now half price, thanks to the holiday shopping season.
