5 best video converters for Android

When you have apps like VLC player or sites like YouTube that can basically handle any video formatDo you really need an adapter for your Android device?

In most cases you probably won’t, but when you come across a video that won’t play on your player of choice, or you want to downsize the video before sending it to someone, they can be incredibly helpful.

Besides, modern Android phones are so powerful they can handle video conferencing tasks with relative ease. We’ve picked five video converters for Android and walked them through their steps.

first. VidSoftLab Video Converter

This video converter is not just an application to convert video formats. VidSoftlab has packed their software with features. There are several tools to choose from, but they have managed to make the interface easy to navigate. Although we’re not crazy about cute design language.

In addition to being a video converter, it also has trim, compression and merge functions along with basic video editing options. Converting our sample video to a new format was quick.

The big problem is the invasive ads in the free version. Every time you try to complete an action, you have to see an ad. Before each individual video conversion, you also have to go through a long video.

The Pro version of the app removes ads and gives you more functionality. It gives you access to batch conversion. So while we could heartily recommend the paid version, the ad-supported version is only for one-time odd conversions or people who may be subject to ads.

2. InverseAI Video Converter

Like the VidSoftLab app, Inverse AI has created a product that doesn’t just convert file formats. It has a trimmer, compressor and offers the choice to extract only the audio. In case you want to make ringtones for example.

There is also a dedicated audio cutter, so if you just want to cut an audio file, you can. Most of the major formats are supported as well as a few that are a bit more common.

We are also not overwhelmed by the level of advertising in the free version of the app. It also has most of the features you want in the free version of the software. If you want to pay, there are different options. You can choose to remove ads only for a monthly or one-time fee. For a higher price, you can also unlock more features like additional formats, including the latest HEVC video format. You will also get unlimited batch conversion queue lengths.

This brings us to the video conversion experience itself. Good news! You can batch convert using the free version of the app! That immediately puts this app at the top of the list when it comes to free video converters for Android. Both the speed and quality of the conversion are satisfactory. InverseAI has done an excellent job here.

3. Antvplayer Media Converter

The word “barebone” comes to mind when you first encounter the interface of Media Converter. This is an app that takes you back to the early days of working with Android phones. It’s a thin interface drawn on the converter that is sure to annoy many users accustomed to more modern interface design.

However, if you have a chance, you will find a lean and quite powerful video converter application. Although it contains ads, it is easy to miss. There are no features hidden behind a wall of fees.

Using additional options such as trim or trim a clip is not as easy as it should be. While crop, rotate, change resolution or crop options are easy to set up, there is no preview. So you are making these changes blindly. If there’s a way to preview the changes you’ve made, we can’t find it.

As for the conversion itself, it works fine. The quality is great and the video works as expected. So if you just want to convert videos and not modify them, this is a great free option.

4. Audio Video Factory

After experiencing the distinct rigors of Media Converter, Audio Video Factory feels like the furthest thing from that minimalist, raw design. It’s colorful, clear, and clearly shows what you need to do from the second you open the app.

When you tap the big “+” button to start the conversion process, you can choose from the videos in your library or from the SD card. You can also add an audio file, as this also acts as an audio converter.

As with other better video converters for Android, you can do batch conversion without paying. We converted three video clips without any fuss.

Setting the desired output settings is a pain, and there are options to trim and trim right in the conversion menu. Yes, unlike Media Converter, AV Factory provides previews for trimming and trimming. So you can see exactly what you’re doing.

Ad support isn’t bad at all. Before starting the mass conversion, we had to watch a short ad in full screen. In addition, the advertising is quite gentle.

5. KKapps Video Converter

The last app on this list is quite a surprise. KKapps has managed to create a video conversion app that strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and functionality. The first screen you see immediately gives you two options. Select “new video to convert” or review the conversions you’ve already made.

Choosing a video is easy, especially since there are three basic video categories that are useful for filtering your selections. Once you’ve selected the video you want to convert, it’s a live guided process to convert yourself.

The biggest drawback of this app is that it won’t let you select multiple videos at once. So batch conversion is not an option. However, it is perfectly suited for those who just want to convert a video in the fastest, simplest way possible. In that niche, it’s a 5 star app. On the other hand, as a general purpose converter, it’s more in the middle of the pack.

Our sample video conversions are all good. There were no obvious quality issues, and we didn’t face too many ads to get the job done.

Very handy video converter for Android

While we think mobile video converters are a pretty niche category of apps, it’s good to know that there are plenty of quality options out there for those who need it. Even if you don’t have a frequent need to change video formats or edit your clips before sending them out, you should have at least one of these apps installed. You never know!
