The VLC media player is considered to be an extremely comprehensive playback program. But it can do even more: e.g. convert files into a different format.

The free media player VLC is not only great for playing audio and video, it can also be used for converting.

VLC Player: The egg-laying woolly milk pig

The video player, which is available free of charge for every operating system, should not be missing on any computer. Because with the help of VLC, almost all video files can be played, even if the on-board resources on the computer cannot handle a video format. But the media player can do even more: VLC also enables video or audio to be converted into other formats.

This is how files can be converted in VLC Player

And it's very easy: First start the VLC player. Then click on "Media" and then on "Convert / Save". Then click on "Add" and search for the media file to be converted. Then click on the drop-down arrow next to the "Convert / Save" button. The desired file format for the output file can now be selected here. Then set the name and folder for the converted file. As soon as "Start" is clicked, the conversion begins. Depending on the size of the source file, this can take a while.
