PROS / This program converts video the fastest and produces the best-quality results of all the video converters we reviewed.

VERDICT / Speed, quality and a wide array of customization tools make Movavi Video Converter a solid choice for video converter software.
Movavi Video Converter is an excellent choice for video converter software. It's incredibly easy to learn and use. It converts videos faster than any product we tested, and the new videos have nearly no quality loss. It also has one of the largest libraries of preprogrammed conversion and optimization profiles on our side-by-side comparison chart.
This video converter's interface contains all the program's core features. Once the file you want to convert is loaded into the program, you can begin a conversion in as little as a single click. In our tests, Movavi converted an hour-long video in one minute. This is the fastest conversion time of all the products in our review.
In addition to being the fastest, Movavi also produced the best quality conversion of all the video converters we evaluated. Our video experts inspected converted video created by this program and could not find any flaws in the picture. The converted audio was flawless as well. Only one other program reached the quality standards set by Movavi.
All the video converter software on our lineup has a library of conversion profiles. These profiles make it easy to switch videos from one format to another. All you have to do is select the profile you want and hit Convert. But the library also contains optimization profiles for more than 275 smartphones, tables, gaming systems, set-top boxes, televisions and more. These profiles tailor your conversion for the specific device you own. Only one other converter in our lineup offered more optimization choices.
Despite its incredibly fast conversion time, impeccable video and audio quality, and having all of the core tools we look for in the best video format converters, Movavi left out some of the minor tools that would have otherwise elevated it into the top tier of our side-by-side comparison chart. For example, this program doesn’t give you the ability to download videos from sites like YouTube and Vimeo. The program also lacks DVD-burning tools, which would be good for users who want a physical backup of their converted videos.
Movavi is a great video converter. It's fast, produces great results and possesses one of the largest conversion profile libraries on our lineup. Only a few minor omissions kept it out of the top tier of our side-by-side comparison chart.
