Free Media Creator provides several options for converting media files to different formats. You may need to convert an MP4 file to an AVI file so that you can add subtitles, or use another format that works with your mobile device. Whatever the format you need, you can convert files from and to a variety of formats. The converter even allows you to load a DVD and convert that DVD into a digital format playable on your preferred device.

When you first launch the program, you are presented with a list of buttons. These buttons provide clear-cut instructions that allow you to easily sense what each button does. For example, the "Add Files" button allows you to add more than one audio or video file to the list. You can then select the option to "Convert" each file individually, "Trim" or "Edit" the files to match your needs. You can even select the "Join All" button to create a compilation of several video and audio files.

The converter allows you to include subtitles and select the type of audio you want for videos. You can also select the option to "Disable Audio" if you want to convert the video only. This can be extremely useful for those that want to add their own music or voiceover to a video. Some unique features include the ability to add a video URL from YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo and other supported video sites. This allows you to download a video and view later without an Internet connection. Alternatively, you can edit already existing videos once you download it.

The converter provides a preview screen that allows you to view both the original and output for comparison. On the preview screen, you can also adjust the cropping, aspect ratio, brightness, contrast and saturation to change the video to your specifications. The trim feature allows you to set a start, end time and create a clip with only the segment you want. You can also select an option to record your screen in full or by selecting a recording area, or by using a webcam. Another available option includes the ability to change the video resolution, the video frame rate and the bit rate. Few pieces of software provide this much functionality for the low price of free.

If you need help getting started, you can use the Get Started screen and follow the systematic directions to edit, convert and modify your audio or video files. The entire process comes within a simple, streamlined interface.
