Work with videos as you wish

FFmpeg is a well-known multifunctional tool to convert, resize, cut, crop, and perform other operations on video content. It is a cross-platform software, also available for Mac devices. We will tell you more about it.

What is this program?

FFmpeg is a set of free and open-source libraries allowing you to record, convert, and transfer digital audio and video in various formats. It has a simple media player characterized by a high file processing speed. This software is not the usual editor to download to your drive. This tool is command-based, and you must use codes to perform a specific task. Although users tend to ignore this tool because of its complexity, it is still considered the best encoder and decoder for many common and unusual files.
