WinFF – Excellent Audio and Video Converter for Linux & Windows


WinFF is a GUI for the command line video converter, FFMPEG. It will convert any video file that FFmpeg will convert. WinFF does multiple files in multiple formats at one time. It is powerful enough to convert mpeg’s, flv’s, and mov’s, all into avi’s all at once. WinFF is available for both Windows and Linux distributions.

WinFF is a excellent audio and video converter, very powerful that it can convert videos in many formats. It supports many formats flv to the now-classic avi (XviD) via the new H.264 and Video DVD, mkv, mp4, and mobile device formats.

After installing WinFF in linux, you can find it under Applications -> Sound & Video -> WinFF, click on Add to add the video to convert, choose the target format using the handy drop down menu located in the bottom of the window and then click the Convert button to start the operation.

These are some useful features I found using WinFF

  • Easy to use interface.
  • Fast (Winff does not hinder FFmpeg in anyway).
  • High quality output.
  • Converts multiple different files all to the same format at once.
  • Convert video to audio.
  • Convert between audio formats.
  • No external codecs needed.
  • Includes a variety of preset conversion settings for common formats and devices.
