FFmpeg is an extremely powerful, and free, command-line tool that converts audio or video formats.
FFmpeg is developed mostly on Linux, but can be compiled under most operating systems.
The latest Windows build of FFmpeg can be downloaded from ffmpeg.org.
While FFmpeg is quite usable in Windows from a command line, or within a batch (*.bat) file script, it can be tedious to type in
extended folder and file names if you intend to convert a lot of files.
Ffmpeg Wrapper provides a simple to use windows GUI interface to the main ffmpeg tool, with the ability to select multiple input files to be converted.
Windows XP or later.

1. Download and install the latest FFmpeg windows build from ffmpeg.org.
2. Download Ffmpeg Wrapper from this page (see button above).
3. Either place the unzipped Ffmpeg Wrapper executable into the "ffmpeg\bin" folder with "ffmpeg.exe", OR ELSE unzip Ffmpeg Wrapper to
your video folder and ensure that the "ffmpeg\bin" program folder is included in your PATH environment variable.
Using Ffmpeg Wrapper:
1. Start the Ffmpeg Wrapper executable.
2. Browse and select the input files. Multiple files from the one folder may be selected.
3. Browse and select a folder for the output files. You can make a new folder if desired.
4. Enter an output file suffix and extension. Output files will have the same names as the input files, but with your specified suffix and extension added at the end.
For example, changing a file from ".mkv" to ".mp4", type ".mp4" for the output suffix & extension.
Or for example, if converting an ".mp4" to another ".mp4" with different encoding, you might want to enter an output suffix & extension like "-new.mp4".
5. Most importantly, you must enter the command line switches for the FFmpeg command.
Some simple and commonly used switch options are provided here via a drop down menu.
However, for full use of the extensive features of FFmpeg, the user is recommended to become familiar with the various
command line options.
6. When the user clicks 'Execute', FFmpeg will be started via a command line prompt in a console window.
The progress of the FFmpeg conversion can be viewed in the console window, until completion, at which point control returns to Ffmpeg Wrapper.
Each file in the input list will be processed, one at a time, in a separate console window.
This is free software and is provided free of charge, 'as is' with no warranty.
