Version 15.0

big update
  • New editing featuresThe new version of Movavi Video Converter offers even more opportunities to edit and improve your video before conversion. You can flip video horizontally or vertically, manually choose crop areas, improve the quality using automatic filters, and overlay text and image watermarks.
  • Extra options for working with soundIf the sound level in your movie is too low or too high, you can easily fix it: just set the desired volume level before starting the conversion. If your clip has big differences in volume, e.g. very loud music and quiet speech, the new volume normalization feature will come in handy. Note that you can change the sound volume in SuperSpeed mode without re-encoding the video track, and, as a result, almost instantly and without loss of image quality. In earlier versions, when converting video with multiple audio tracks, you could only transfer one track to the converted file; now, you can transfer up to 16 tracks (depending on the format you choose). You can transfer audio tracks in SuperSpeed mode without re-converting the video track as well. This feature will be a boon for those using video to study foreign languages.
  • Working with imagesMovavi Video Converter now supports image file conversion. You can convert images in many popular formats into GIF, JPEG, BMP, TIFF, and PNG. In addition, you can now convert images to video! Still pictures are transformed into 5-second video fragments as if by magic. You can also join images together, including with video clips.
  • Converting video to GIFnimated GIFs are getting more and more popular on the web. Using Movavi Video Converter 15, you can create your own GIF animations from video clips: you can choose between a number of ready-made presets with different image sizes.
  • Improved support for 4K Ultra HD videoNow you can not only convert 4K Ultra HD files to a lower resolution, but also convert 4K video from one format to another.
  • Support for more formats and codecsWe’ve implemented conversion to M4A audio format with AAC and ALAC codecs. For WebM format video, we’ve also added support for new codecs: VP7 and VP9 – for reading, and VP9 – for writing.
  • HTML5 presetsIf you often post videos on your website or blog, you’ve probably heard about HTML5. The challenge with this standard is that you need to upload video in three different formats to your server because different browsers use different formats. In the new “HTML5 Video” preset group, you will find presets for MP4 (H.264), WebM, and OGV formats.
  • Presets for upscaling videoIf you want to watch your family videos on a big screen, you may be disappointed. Old recordings often have relatively low resolution, while modern TVs and monitors support video resolution up to 4K Ultra HD. The device you play the video on will resize the image appropriately, but the quality of the image will likely suffer. To avoid these problems, you can convert your video to a higher resolution using special presets in the latest version of Movavi Video Converter. Thanks to optimally chosen resizing algorithms, the video quality may even improve.
  • New presets for mobile devicesWe are constantly updating the list of supported devices and adding ready-made presets for the latest models. In v15, you will find presets for iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Note Pro, HTC One mini 2, LG G3, Nokia Lumia 1520, Sony Xperia Z2, new consoles – PS4 and Xbox One – and many other devices. We’ve also added presets for Lenovo smartphones and tablets, as well as for popular brands of TVs.
  • Extra optimization and greater usabilityNow you can minimize the video converter to the system tray. This reduces the CPU load so that you can continue working in other programs while the conversion is in progress. Additionally, you can always pause the conversion if you need to complete a resource-heavy task and then resume it once the task is complete.
  • Other improvementsWhen converting video and audio, meta data (artists, date of shooting, etc.) is automatically transferred from the original to the converted file. We’ve also added the ability to choose the encoding when adding subtitles. This can help to avoid problems when adding subtitles with encoding that is different from the system encoding.
