Adapter can also download most any Fash-based video on the web and auto-convert it in your preferred format and it can trim to your preference.


Free to download and use.

173 Sud's curator insight, March 9, 2013 12:01 PM

 

 

Adapter can be as simple or as advanced as you want. You can keep things simple and stick to presets or tweak settings to your heart's content.

Choose your video encoder, frame rate, bit rate, sample rate, audio encoder, number of channels, and more!
