Any Video Converter is a video converter developed by Anvsoft Inc. for Microsoft Windows and macOS.[4] It is available in both a free and paid version. Any Video Converter Windows version has won the CNET Downloads 5 star award.[5]


The software converts most video files including AVI, FLV, MOV, MP4, MPG, M2TS, MTS, RMVB, AVCHD, MKV, WebM(V8), QT, WMV, VOB, 3GP, 3GPP2, DivX, and more into other formats such as AVI, MOV, MP4, FLV, WMV, MP3, etc.[6][7] The resulting output files can be transferred to an iPod, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, PSP, Samsung, HTC, Android, BlackBerry, Nokia, Xbox, Smartphones, etc.[8]

This freeware also performs functions such as downloading videos from online video-sharing sites such as YouTube, Niconico, MetaCafe, etc. Users can edit videos as they like such as cutting, rotating, flipping, adding video effects, combining multiple videos into one file. Moreover, It also allows users to create HTML5 videos with embedding code ready to use for websites, burn videos to DVD or AVCHD DVD disc, boost video conversion speed up to 6X faster with CUDA acceleration.[citation needed] It can also use AMD APP Encoder for X264/H264 video encoding.[citation needed]


The software has been reviewed as being "ridiculously easy to use"[9] and "interface is easy to manipulate".[10]

AVC was featured as Lifehacker's Download of the Day on November 30, 2006.[8]

Windows Vista Magazine had a tutorial on converting video files with the software for viewing on a PSP in its April 2007 issue.[9] The software was also reviewed in 2008 by MacLife for its capability to convert files for viewing on an iPod.[11]

The free version of AVC is ad-supported.[12] While it does not appear to contain malware,[13] the Windows installer does default to include potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) such as virus scanners and/or toolbars. However, the user can avoid installing these PUPs by selecting the Customize Install option and not accepting installation of the optional, recommended software.[14]
