Geek Software of the Week: Miro Video Converter!
So, it is always a hassle to convert video from one format or another! I use (and love) the Free Video Converter, from Koyotesoft, available here:
BUT… our good friends at Participatory Culture (the folks behind Miro) also have a free video converter… it is free, AND Open Source… gotta love that! It is available here:
“A super simple way to convert almost any video to MP4, WebM (vp8), Ogg Theora, or for Android, iPhone, and more. 100% Free and open-source. Miro Video Converter has presets that will convert video to the correct sizes and formats for popular phones, iPods, and other media players. Just convert your video and copy it to your device.”
It is designed mainly for folks that download video and then want to convert it to run on a hand-held device, like your iPhone, Droid phone, etc. Good stuff!
