MacX Free AVCHD Video Converter

MacX Free AVCHD Video Converter 2.5

Converts AVCHD files into a variety of other formats for free.

MacX Free AVCHD Video Converter is a video converter that can be used to convert AVCHD files into a variety of other formats for free. AVCHD, which stands for Advanced Video Coding High Definition, is a format that is widely used in high definition camcorders. If you have one of those camcorders, then you know that most devices can't play those files and sometimes it is hard to share them because of their size. This converter can help you solve both problems. You can convert those files to more popular formats, like H.264, MPEG-4, AVI, and FLV with this app. It even comes with conversion profiles for devices like iPad, iPhone, iPod, AppleTV and Blackberry phones. So, if you have one of those, the process will be easier for you.

To test this app, I converted a sample AVCHD file using one of the iPad profiles. I selected the one that is called iPad Excellent Quality HD 720p, because the resolution of my file was 720p. The conversion process wasn't fast, but the resulting file looked great, and I could play it on my iPad just fine.

Finally, MacX Free AVCHD Video Converter will only let you open AVCHD files. If you try opening any other format, it will ask you to buy a commercial converter by MacX.
