Squared 5 - Media File Convertor

pauldavies

This is a very good media file converter for individual files or batch (bulk) processing. For example if your device produces videos that are .AVI then you probably can't play them on a Mac computer. Conversely if they are .MOV then you probably can't play them on a Windows PC. This is not always the case but it can become confusing and frustrating if you want to use your video files on another device.

e.g. The fairly popular Flipcam records video in MP4 format which will not natively play on a PC. Installing the bundled and free “Flipshare” software will get around that but if you want to edit in Windows Movie Maker, Squared 5 will help you convert the files to a format that works.
