Software Overview

FFmpeg is a command-line tool that is part of an open source multimedia framework also named FFmpeg. It is used to convert many different audio and video formats very quickly and also has the ability to get media from live audio and video sources.

If you are comfortable with computers and want a tool that can get you high quality results out of converting and manipulating multimedia, FFmpeg is right up your alley. For those who don't want to work through a command-line interface, a different media converter might be a better way to go.
