Sharing video on the Internet has become a common practice. As most of the times online videos are not really meant to be downloaded but watched, you need special software to retrieve them. In addition, you need to convert the downloaded clips to make them compatible with the intended devices. 4Media Online Video Converter can do both things.
Since it has a nice and intuitive interface, you will not have any difficulty to find the needed functions. A built-in browser helps you navigate to such popular sites as YouTube, Metacafe, Dailymotion, Espn, Niconico, Stickcam, Vimeo, Blip.tv, Vidlife, BlockTV, Break and Revver and it also lets you use the site’s search and navigate functions to find the desired clip. After that, you can easily create a download job. Moreover, you can enter video URLs manually or monitor Internet Explorer. If multiple formats are available, the application lets you choose the desired version. What is more, you can keep the file’s format as it is or otherwise re-encode it.
With 4Media Online Video Converter you can not only convert downloaded clips but also import files from local drives. Regrettably, FLV and MP4 are the only supported source formats. In contrast, multiple formats can be selected as output. In addition, most of the output profiles are specifically configured to avoid compatibility issues with some common devices as iPod, PlayStation, Zune and Xbox.
Although not as fast as other video download managers, 4Media Online Video Converter is a fine solution for users who would like to watch downloaded videos on their portable devices.
