Which kind of free online video downloader and video converter Software is the best for you?

There are bunch of software for converting and downloading video. 

From the famous DVD rippers such as Dvdfab, Anydvd, Clonedvd, 

to newly popular all-in-one video solutions such as Format factory, 

Handbrake, Freemake, Wondershare Video Converter, Anyvideo 

Converter, each of which varies in a raft of subtle ways. It’s hard 

for users to make a choice, let alone some of these products even 

provide online version and PC version. 

With this post I will make a further discussion of user experience 

of these video tools.

Let’s begin with problems you have encountered when using 

video converter & downloader.

> Some products are bundled with other software, which may be 

reported as malware by anti-virus programs. Users have to be very 

careful when install it, trying to avoid toolbar and crappy offers. 

Like the picture shows below,

> Some video converters support lots of formats. But they have 

more work to do with  optimizing. I have seen lots of complains 

about being crashed or quit unexpectedly when converting. For 

example, if the converter doesn’t support 3gp format quite well, 

subtitles will be lost when you convert the file to mkv. Some 

users may even find conversion fails when the video is 

converted to MP4 or the original file contains multiple tracks.

> Some software have comprehensive functions, which you 

can tell from the UI. However, users may find it’s difficult to 

understand because all the functions are just listed there 

without any focus. When a product first releases, the design 

is often simple and easy to use. But with more and more 

updated version, the design becomes more complicated too. 

That’s why many users prefer not update. 

However, adding support for uncommon video formats (m2ts e.g.) 

or providing more features will bring convenience to users. The 

product needs to be more functional while keep simple and clean. 

That’s what we Format Package always working on. 

Then we go to the cons of video converter & downloader 

online version and PC version. 

The biggest con of online video converters is that it has limitation 

of converting file size and numbers. Some free converters need 

registration, which will ask for email address or sns account. Then 

you will receive lots of junk mails. I’m sure most of you have 

experienced it.

Another con of online video converters is advertisement. Since 

the products are free, ads is the only way to gain profit. Some 

advertisements are hard to tell from the banner you intend to click. 

What’s more, click error will lead you to install something like 

toolbar or downloader, which is hard to uninstall. If the anti-virus 

program doesn’t remove them in time, your PC will be totally 

messed, believe me.

like this,

Since there are so many products, like PC Dvdfab, Anydvd, Clonedvd, 

Format factory, Handbrake, Freemake, Wondershare Video Converter, 

Any Video Converter and online Clipconverter, Saverformat, Youtube.io, 

is there any alternative? There is no specific answer because every 

product has its pros and cons, just like ourselves. My suggestion is to 

be carefully choose what you need. That will be enough. 

At last I want to have a brief talk about Format Package. It lacks many 

functions compared to some mature products. But it is easy and simply 

to use with clean design. And the free version will meet your daily needs. 

We are working on improving Format Package to make it better and 

more powerful.
