Version 5.0

big update
  • More editing tools Now there are even more ways to modify your video clips. Crop or flip video, enhance with auto filters, add text and image watermarks.
  • More opportunities for working with sound Need to increase or decrease the sound level in your movie? Just set the desired volume before starting the conversion. Take advantage of the new volume normalization feature to fix big volume changes, e.g. quiet voices and loud music. Great news: you can adjust the volume without re-encoding the video track in SuperSpeed mode – the process will be almost instantaneous, and the image quality won’t be affected! When converting videos with multiple audio tracks in previous versions of the program, you could only save one track. Now you can save (almost) as many as you want! The program supports the transfer of up to 16 tracks (depending on the destination format). This feature is also compatible with SuperSpeed mode, so you can transfer audio tracks without re-encoding the video stream.
  • Support for image formats Now you can convert not only video and audio, but also image files! The program supports GIF, JPEG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, and other formats. You can also transform still images into 5-second video clips. Images can be joined to each other as well as to video fragments.
  • Converting video to GIF Social networks are overflowing with shared GIF animations. Want to create your own? Just add your video clip to Movavi Video Converter, choose the ready-made GIF preset at the desired image size, and hit Convert.
  • Improved support for 4K Ultra HD video Now you can not only save 4K Ultra HD videos at a lower resolution, but also convert them to other formats while still preserving the 4K resolution.
  • More formats and codecs supported Conversion to M4A audio format with AAC and ALAC codecs is now supported. For WebM video format, more codecs are supported, too: VP7 and VP9 for reading and VP9 for writing.
  • HTML5 presets If you have a website or blog where you often upload video, you’re probably acquainted with the HTML5 standard. However, you need to save your video in three different formats before uploading it to a web server, because each browser requires a particular video format under HTML5. To make your life easier, we’ve added a new HTML5 Video preset group with ready-made presets for MP4 (H.264), OGV, and WebM formats.
  • Upscale your video with no loss of quality When you watch low-resolution videos on a big screen, image quality often seems poor because hardware resizing usually involves the use of algorithms not optimal for the environment. In the new Movavi Video Converter, we’ve added special presets for upscaling video in which the optimal resizing algorithm is automatically chosen for the task. This means the final image quality can only be better, and you will be able to enjoy your videos on any screen size.
  • Presets for new devices The list of supported devices is being constantly expanded and new models added. The latest version of Movavi Video Converter supports iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Note Pro, Sony Xperia Z2, HTC One mini 2, Nokia Lumia 1520, and LG G3, as well as long-awaited PS4 and Xbox One consoles and other devices. There are also presets for popular brands of TVs and for Lenovo tablets and smartphones.
  • Higher usability Movavi Video Converter can be minimized during conversion. Since this reduces the CPU load, you can continue working on your computer as usual. If you need to complete a resource-heavy task, you can pause the conversion and resume it later when your task is finished.
  • Other improvements Meta information about video and audio files (date of shooting, artists, etc.) is now automatically transferred to the converted files.
    You can also choose encoding for any subtitles you add – this is because problems can sometimes arise if you add subtitles with encoding that is different from the system encoding.
