It’s an all-in-one video toolbox.

Head over to the Wondershare UniConverter website to download the latest version.

System Requirements: Windows

Digital photography has come on leaps and bounds in the last few years. Even snaps from popular, modern smartphones produce images of many megabytes.

When it comes to working with any photo or video manipulation software, it’s fair to say that the more computing horsepower you have, the better the experience.

For Windows 64-bit machines, UniConverter works on the supported Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 operating systems.

A 750MHz Intel or AMD processor, 100MB of free hard drive space and 256MB or more of RAM are required. Obviously, the greater the specifications of your machine, the better your experience. 

A 32-bit Windows version of the software is also available for download.

System Requirements: Mac

UniConverter is compatible with OS X 10.10 Yosemite, OS X 10.11 El Capitan, macOS 10.12 Sierra, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, macOS 10.14 Mojave and macOS 10.15 Catalina.

A 1GHz processor or better, 100MB of hard drive space and 512GB RAM are also required.

Wondershare also supplies a version of UniConverter that’s compatible with OS X 10.7 Lion, OS X 10.8, Mountain Lion and OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

Convert Video

UniConverter enables the conversion of more than a thousand audio and video formats. Just read that again. A thousand! I’ve been involved in technology for longer than I’d care to think and I’d struggle to name ten different file formats!

Wondershare tell me that new file formats are been constantly added to UniConverter and that means whatever you’re audio and video file conversion requirements, the answer is more than likely UniConverter.

That extends to Virtual Reality devices and 4K format support. UniConverter supports a number of VR devices and 4K video formats such as MP4, AVI, MOV, MKV, Xvid, HEVC and more.

There’s more information on supported formats on the Wondershare UniCoverter website.

Edit Video

Modern smartphones are able to capture video at increasing fast frame rates and pixel dimensions such that video at 60fps at a size of 1080p HD or 4K UHD are now not beyond the realms of possibility. 

Whether you’re capturing video on smartphones, dSLRs or the latest profession RED cameras, you’ll be wanting an efficient way to edit the video to make your videos more engaging to the viewer.

Wondershare UniConverter puts the essential tools into your hands and gives you the ability to edit videos in a number of ways.

Getting Started

The first step is to upload the video to UniConverter. This is as easy as dragging from Finder into UniConverter. The video imports super-quick!

The screenshot above shows a single video in UniConverter. You may import more than one file.

Click the play icon or double-click the video thumbnail to launch a preview window to review the video. This may be increased to full-screen should you desire.

Trim Video

To trim a video, click on the scissors icon beneath the video thumbnail.

This opens a window previewing the video and the frames below. Move the bars, at begging and end of the video, to select the except you wish to keep.

Drag the red slider to view a specific point in the video.

Click the OK button to proceed with the trimming of the video.

Crop Video

To crop a video, use the crop tool underneath the video Thumbnail to open the crop tool window.

Add Effects

To add video effects, select the slider button, below the video thumbnail, to open the Effects window, as show below.

In this window you'll be able to select a number of pre-defined effects to apply to the video in real time. Additionally, you have sliders to adjust the Brightness, Contrast and Saturation of the video.

Add Watermark

Open the Effects pane and along the top you'll have the options of Crop, Effect, Watermark, Subtitle and Audio

Select Watermark.

This option allows you to select an image file or define text to show a watermark on the video.

The transparency of the watermark can be adjusted between zero and 100 per cent. You may also move it to any part of the frame, depending on whether you want it in the top left, the bottom right or somewhere else.

Add Subtitle

Open the Effects pane and along the top you'll have the options of CropEffectWatermarkSubtitle and Audio

Select Subtitle.

You can choose all aspects of the subtitle style including font colour, size, style, position in the frame and transparency.

Adjust Audio

Open the Effects pane and along the top you'll have the options of CropEffectWatermarkSubtitle and Audio

Select Audio.

Compress Video

With the ever increased capabilities of technology, the file sizes of video inevitably increases. This may present problems when trying to distribute and store video content.

For these eventualities, Wondershare UniConverter has you covered, enabling you to:

  • Preview files prior to compression
  • Compress multiple videos in batches
  • Compress 8K video with a mouse-click

And it does this with support for in excess of one thousand video and audio formats.

Record Video

Whether you’re a trainer, a gamer or have another reason for capturing the computer screen, many people want to share videos of what their computer is doing.

If you have a presentation to deliver, are putting together an online training package or just wish to share gaming exploits with your friends, Wondershare UniConverter includes a screen recording tool.

Capture an area or the full screen, capture the system audio, the microphone, both or neither and do it all whilst recording with no loss of quality. UniConverter even captures gaming activities without any frame rate loss at all.

UniConverter even extends to recording webcams in full quality, with or without audio and without any loss in quality.

Download Video

UniConverter enables the downloading of video content from more than ten thousand video-sharing sites.

Furthermore, the downloaded videos may then be converted into formats compatible for playback on televisions, smartphones or other devices.

Burn DVD

Once you’ve captured some original video and edited it in UniConverter, it’s likely that you’ll wish to share it. A holiday video of the children to share with the grandparents, perhaps?

  • Burn videos to DVD and Blu-ray
