With so many video formats available – different ones are suitable for using online and offline and various cameras and phones using a range of codecs – it is little wonder that there is a need to convert videos from one format to another. VideoLoster is a free and easy to use video editing tool that not only allows for conversion between formats, but also includes basic editing options.

One of the editing features allows for the cropping of oversized video and you can also opt to rotate or flip footage if necessary. The quality of disappointing video can be enhanced using one of the various filters that are included, such as sharpening, softening, colour adjustment and more.

When it comes to format conversion, there are a number of formats to choose from ranging from everyday codecs such as AVI and MPEG to the less common such as F4V and 3G2. Depending on the format you have chosen there are a number of additional compression and filtering options that can be configured, but the real beauty of VideoLobster is the fact that batch conversion can be performed on several videos at the same time and you have the option of saving settings so they can be used again without the need for reconfiguring.

In order to continue using the video watermarking feature for more than 20 days, you will need to upgrade to the Pro version of VideoLobster, and you can find out more at the program web site. The Pro version of the program allows for a range of watermarking options using text, images, shapes and animations.

Verdict

Making the potentially nightmarish task of video editing as simple as possible, VideoLobster is a great tool for anyone with a digital camera.
