Turns HD videos files like MTS, M2TS or MPG into classic video formats that occupy less storage space AVI, FLV, 3GP, MP4 or WMV.

Free HD Converter allows transforming HD camcorder recordings into video files compatible with mobile devices. It is basically a video converter that can load MTS, M2TS and MPG files and convert them to common video file formats such as AVI, 3GP, FLV, MP4 or WMV. By converting MTS files to the 3GP or MP4 formats you will be able to play them on various types of mobile devices such as iPhones or iPods.

I like a lot of things about this small application. One of them is the fact that it comes with a simple and neat interface. Another is the fact that it is a lightweight and resource-friendly application that won’t consume any noticeable amount of system resources, not even when it converts large files. The reasonably high conversion speed is also worth acclaiming, as well as the support for batch converting multiple files at once. Furthermore, it allows configuring some additional parameters for the output file, such as the size, FPS value or bit rate. Anyway, a list of presets is also available, allowing the users to quickly select specific conversion profiles and convert to certain types of files without having to manually tweak the aforementioned output parameters.

In an end note, though this tool comes with quite a lot of advantages, I think that its strongest point remains the fact that it is offered for free. There are a lot of similar applications that require paying loads of money for allowing you to perform the same types of conversions and they don't actually offer much more in return than what Free HD Converter already offers for free.
