Adapter is a smart and feature-rich application, with the help of which anyone can convert almost any kind of multimedia file.
Although Adapter is an easy-installable piece of software, it requires two additional applications, called Perian and Ffmpeg. While the first one enables Adapter to preview multimedia content, the second is required for file conversion. There is no need to download them separately; Adapter will download and install or update them for you.

Adapter was built as a very easy-to-use application, with well-organized options and functions. Yet, it would have been a good idea if the program had been built on a customizable interface, since it is important for the user to have the power to choose.

Adapter has two main functions: of converting multimedia files and the one of downloading Youtube videos.

Adapter's major feature is the support for a wide range of multimedia formats, since it is hard to find an all-in-one converter that also does its job in a fast and accurate way. As its name suggests, this piece of software is capable of adapting its settings, in order to convert files for different kind of devices (Nintendo, Apple, Sony and so on). Adapter supports eight types of audio formats, five types of image formats and multiple video types.

What is interesting about Adapter is its ability to perform even inter-format conversions. So, this tool can be used even for audio extraction from video files. When transforming files from one format to another, you are allowed to perform basic adjustments over them, such as color enhancement, trimming operation and a few other.

An integrated mini-browser allows you to watch and select YouTube videos for a fast and accurate downloading operation.

Briefly, Adapter proves to be an efficient solution for a wide area of multimedia editing operations. And best of all, it is a free-to-use application.
