Post pobrano z: Free Video Converters For Web-Ready Videos
There are various video sharing services, like Youtube or Vimeo, in the web that can host and serve the files for us which is great.
However, there are cases that these services may not be a good fit like "unbranded videos", "custom sizes", a custom player, etc. This is when we usually need to convert/encode our videos to make them ready for the web.
And there are multiple formats like the popular FLV or HTML5 video formats like OGG, h.264 and WebM where you may need multiple versions of the same video for maximum compability.
Here are free video converter applications that support these formats to help you complete this process easily:
