MacX Free MPEG Video Converter is designed to help you convert a wide range of media formats into MPEG. Therefore, the tool optimizes the playback of movies and music tracks on media players that support the MPEG format.

The program's interface is very intuitive, as it provides most conversion options as default settings. However, all features support individual customization, so that the results can meet your needs. The utility allows you to import both single and multiple files at once in order to convert them in one session. Loading files is done either by using the classic browsing method from within the app or, more conveniently, by dragging and dropping files onto the program. Once videos have been added to the conversion list, you are shown useful information related to their length, resolution, audio channels, and whether they include subtitles. Previewing the source files is also possible, thanks to the embedded media player offered by the tool. During the playback of your files, you can take snapshots, which you can save as JPG, PNG, BMP images at a computer location you determine.

The conversion procedure doesn't require much knowledge, since the tool structures the output profiles into suggestively-named categories. Still, advanced users can enter encoding settings and tweak sensitive video and audio issues, like resolution, aspect ratio, and bit, frame, and sample rates, to mention but a few. In addition, the program provides useful editing features that let you adjust audio volume, trim parts of a video, crop and expand a displayed image, and add subtitles and watermarks.

Its comprehensive conversion and editing options make MacX Free MPEG Video Converter a reliable media file optimizer. It is not limited to MPEG conversion, as you may think by the name of the program – the array of output formats is wider, including MP3, WMA, and AC3.
