Converting Videos With VLC

There’s no doubt that VLC is one of the most acclaimed and feature-rich media players available. Yes, of course the reason is its seamless ability to play wide variety of media files and discs but that’s not all.
Using VLC you can do many creative things with your videos and one of the examples that we have already seen is its ability to cut video clips. I’m sure you’ll appreciate the ease with which it gets the job done without any hassle whatsoever.
Impressive, right? So, today we will see how you can use your VLC media player as a free video converter for all your media files.

Converting Videos With VLC


Step 1: Launch VLC media player and click on Media –> Convert / Save.
convert save


Step 2: Under the file tab you will see two sections. In the first one add the file you want to convert while the second section can be used to embed a subtitle to the converted video that’s already in sync.

         open file

Step 3: Click on the Convert/Save button when you are done. Finally select the destination folder, give a desired filename, select the desired video profile and click on the start button.

            destination file

Note: By default VLC media player comes packed with a few profiles that can convert your video to most of the widely used audio and video formats. You can edit, delete or create new profiles using three buttons located next to the select profile dropdown list.

You can play with various settings like audio and video codecs to get your desired conversion profile.

Step 5: Once everything is at place press the start button.
It’s now time to sit back and relax. The player will stream the video in twice the speed and convert it at the same time in the background.

My Opinion

VLC video converter is as powerful as any of the widely used video converters. With editable parameters like codecs to use, frame rate, bitrate etc, VLC can surely give most of the paid converters out there a run for their money. The only feature lacking is the ability to batch convert videos.
So do try using VLC as a video converter and share with us your experience.
