[Windows] Leawo Video Converter supports over a dozen input and output video and audio formats

2013-03-31_223501 [1]dotTech has a review on best free video and audio converter for Windows [2], so I’m guessing most dotTechies already have a video/audio converter they regularly use. However, if you are still in the market for a video/audio converter, Leawo Video Converter wants your business. Let’s see if it is worth your time.

2013-03-31_224155 [5]This is 2013 and in 2013 video and audio converting is no longer an art — it is a science. In today’s world, there are dime a dozen top quality video converters. Leawo Video Converter is part of that group; it is a good video converter with good features, support for many input/output formats, output profiles specific to modern electronic devices, and is easy to use. There really isn’t much else to say about Leawo Video Converter: it is just like most other video converters out there.

If I were to nitpick, I’d say probably the biggest drawback to Leawo Video Converter comes in the form of batch processing. When batch processing, many rival video/audio converters allow users to customize output format and settings for each input file individually. Leawo Video Converter does not allow that — all input files must be converted to the same output format with the same output settings.

Aside from that… I have nothing really else to say about Leawo Video Converter. If you have seen one video/audio converter, you have pretty much seen them all.

This has got to be one of the shortest discussions I have ever written.

CONCLUSION AND DOWNLOAD LINK

Leawo Video Converter is a good program. It does what it claims and does it well; there isn’t anything majorly wrong with the program. However, I don’t recommend Leawo Video Converter for one simple reason: it provides no unique or value-added features that you would not get in a freeware video converter (aside from 2D -> 3D video conversions, which is more a gimmick than useful anyway). So why pay $29.95 for Leawo Video Converter when you can grab the likes of freeware Video to Video Converter [2] (portable), freeware FormatFactory [2], and freeware Freemake Video Converter [2]? I see no compelling reason for anyone to give their hard-earned cash to Leawo when they can get the same functionality for free.

If you can think of a reason to get Leawo Video Converter over a freeware converter, share with us in the comments below. Until then, my recommendation for everyone that does not yet have a video/audio converter is to read dotTech’s review on best free video and audio converters for Windows [2].
