‘QWinFF’ 0.1.9 Released – Adds New Output Formats & UI Improvements

QWinFF’ is an easy to use multimedia converter that is based on ‘ffmpeg’ and Qt. It runs on GNU/Linux and MS Windows, comes with GNU GPL licensed and is completely free to use.

Since it is based on ‘ffmpeg’, you can add pretty much any multimedia container format into it, and re-convert the audio/video tracks into a different one (with different settings), easily.

‘QWinFF’ also lets you manually set the range (‘cutting’) and change -- bit-rates, volume levels, sample rate, audio channels, crop, resize, deinterlace and manually pass command-line parameters to ‘ffmpeg’ as well.
