We all know that new devices are literally flooded. Each of them plays video clips but in some format. This means that if you have a video clip on your computer, there are little opportunities to view it on one of the other devices you have without the use of an additional program that will convert it. Currently, there are thousands of programs that are specialized exclusively for video conversion. Some of them are free and some are paid. Also, some of them are simple, and some are complicated, some look nice, and some have almost no user interface.
The program I am writing about is caller Hamster, and that is a free program for converting video to many other formats. The program is so easy to use that I have decided to write this post more as a description, not as the initial program guide. Simply after you add a video clip (by clicking on a button, dragging and dropping) you have the option to select in the “Edit” tab in which format you want to convert the video or on which device you want to play it.
On the side, there are also settings for image quality and sound, but if you are not professional and do not know exactly what you are doing, I do not recommend using these options. After simple adjustments, we only have a “Convert” tab where you need to click on the large “Press to convert” button and wait for the program to do its own job.
It can convert any video format in order to use it on Apple TV, Zune, iRiver, Xbox, Blackberry, PSP, PS3, iPhone, iPad, iPod, and so on. The files are converted to M2TS, DVD, HD, FLV, MPEG, WMV, MPG, AVI and other different formats. The video player is integrated. Hamster is easy to use, and the process is divided into three easy steps. You can change codec, filters, types, and effects on your videos, and also stack multiple videos, all at the same time. Also, you can adjust the frame rate and video bitrate as you wish, making your converted video beat more quality than it was. This program also supports forty different languages that you can choose at the beginning of the program. Some of the languages are Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Chinese, German, Korean, French, Arabic, and of course English.
