Adapter is a free video, audio, and image converter. It is a very complete app that should help you tackle all your multimedia file conversion needs. It also comes with a YouTube video downloader which can open pretty much any multimedia file.

Graphically, Adapter consists of a single window that houses all the conversion settings for video, audio, and images, and of course, the video downloader. On the right pane of the window, you will be able to change the conversion settings. On the left, you will see your conversion queue (the files that you want to convert). At the top of the screen, you will notice a drop-down menu that lets you select the profile and/or format that you want to convert your files to. And at the bottom of the screen, you will find the video player.

Adapter's strongest point is that it can convert pretty much any file that it can open. Second to that it is easy to use. Users who know nothing about file formats, encoders, profiles or bitrates can successfully, and easily, convert files for playback on their devices. You can of course customize the process to suit your needs as well.

In short, if you are looking for a great, free video converter, there are two major choices: Handbrake and Adapter. They both work great, and Adapter comes with a nice extra, a video downloader.
