'[OT]:: MP4 conversion'
2016\10\29@204214 by RussellMc

I wish to upload a number of videos to Facebook & You tube (the shame!).

Any suggestions re free or for money WIN10 compatible programs that meet
the following need would be welcome.

In many cases these are usually of higher resolution / quality / size than
is generally required.
The files are 1080p MP4 format, usually "Out of Camera".

A web search for converters produced several zillion promising leads and
nothing as yet attractive enough. "Free" would be nice (and there are
various claims re fully free) but 'sensibly priced' is acceptable if useful
enough.

I found a Source Forge progran (name escapes) that converted almost every
format one could imagine. Alas MP4, was nit included in "almost every".

Some companies offer free online conversion versions of their for-money
downloadable products but I'm prefer to avoid anything needing an initial
upload of the source video file.

Windows Moviemaker allegedly runs on WIN10 but attempting to download the
allegedly relevant 'essntials' package produced discouraging messages.

I think WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe will do what you
want. Not free but reasonable. Their DVD ripper is also very
good.

Ashampoo also has a large variety of high quality but
inexpensive software. I'm not sure if they have exactly what
you want. You can find some of their stuff here:

I use WMM.  It is pretty smart when it comes to uploading - you can fine
tune the parameters or use one of the "canned" ones - and it tells you how
much storage (and presumably upload bandwidth) per minute of video is used
by whatever you have selected.

What were the "discouraging" messages you received?  I would be more wary
of a download from sourceforge than M$.

I've used "Format Factory" although it's been a while since I needed
it.  Not sure aout Win10 compatability - I'm on Win7 & linux.

​Thanks. I'd somehow forgotten the dread AShampoo. I've bought a number of
their products over the years. Usually not utterly top class but usually OK
value for money. ​
A look shows they have several relevant products with varying degrees of
extra functionality and price.

Hi Russel,
from SourceForge there is TEncoder sourceforge.net/projects/tencoder/?source=directory
very good, simple and fast. Good for batch conversions.
For fine tuning the conversion use ffmpeg http://www.ffmpeg.org/

Thanks for the various recommendations - all of which seem to lie in the
very useful to utterly brilliant range.
What I've seen so far will meet the need but if there is something else not
yet mentioned I'm happy to add it to my list. Someone else is liable to
benefit 'along the way'.

As a first attempt "Handbrake" has made a useful difference and I'll try to
check all the free recommendations and maybe the so far single for $ one to
see what other capabilities are available.
I am an 'obsessive' still photo taker but 'videos happen' along the way and
being able to easily put them on the internet is highly desirable.

VLC does a good job at everything to do with media it seems.

What format are you converting to?

MP4 in / MP4 out with playing in between seems useful.

What triggered this was that I recorded a significant number of dance
sessions at Diwali festivals here. My main 'task' was taking still photos
for a dance school but nots of other Diwali photos happened outside the
defined group slots, and I set up a static APSC camera recording full HD
video during most of the sessions. Results were not as good as if there had
been an operator (of course) but better than I expected and actual quality
is far superior to what most people manage with phone cameras. So, a low
effort way of converting images for what is a secondary task ​would be
useful. Full res file upload takes "ages" and risks the exigencies of
social media interfacing making it take even longer.
