Free Video Format Converter

Videojournalists may find this AVS Video Converter to be a useful tool for switching from one format to another -- a common problem when certain files can't be uploaded to video-sharing platforms that have strict limitations on the types of files they'll accept.

This one can handle most popular formats, including AVI, MPEG, WMV, MOV, QT, MP4, 3GP, FLV, and plenty more. Plus, you can use it to rip and burn videos to DVD (or copy DVDs to your hard drive). And it comes with a simple video editor -- for adding transitions, effects, titles -- though admittedly that's designed mainly for home video.

As a free download, the price is right for trying it out. The downside is that it's Windows only (not Mac).

P.S. The Website also offers free Audio Conversion software -- same idea, including audio editing capabilities.
