Icecream Media Converter is a free tool for converting video and audio files between different formats (flv, mkv, mp4, avi, swf, 3gp, flac, wmv, vob, rmvb, mov, m4v, midi, mp4, mpg, mpeg, m2ts, mts, mp3, wma, wav, m4a, m4p, cda, aac, aiff, ogg).
The program can import multiple local files, or download its source videos from web URLs. These may then be converted to your chosen audio or video format, or you can just choose a profile for your destination device (iPad, iPhone, Xbox, Sony PSP, and others for Samsung, Blackberry, Nokia and more).
What you don't get here is any real control of the converted file. There are no options to set resolution, codec, bitrates or anything else: just a single "Quality" setting with four options (Best, Good, Average, Bad).
The conversion process is better designed. It's kicked off with a click; you're able to pause or cancel the conversion of one or all your files; the program runs its conversions very quickly, and opens the destination folder immediately afterwards for you to browse the results.
Previous conversions are also handled well. Open the program and the last file converted is named, with a link to its folder. There's also a History option where you can view all your recently converted files, good news if you've forgotten where they were saved.
What's new in 1.56 (Changelog):
- Icelandic language added
There's no video editor, and very little control over the converted file, but Icecream Media Converter is an easy-to-use audio/ video conversion tool which handles the basics well.
