FLVCrunch is an excellent lightweight tool for converting audio and video files from one format to another. DPS Computing recently discovered this handy little tool while converting Windows Media Audio files (.wma) to MP3 files.
Now, unfortunately on OS X, Adobes Media Encoder does not cut it if you want to input or output .wma files (this is only included on the Windows version of Media Encoder). However, this lightweight tool has hit the nail on the head. Don’t let its small size fool you, this really is a formidable tool.
Small, lightweight and low memory usage are all positive points of this piece of software. It can also convert many audio files in a matter of seconds.
For any developers out there, both software and web, this is a must have tool to have in your collection.
And without any doubt the best thing about FLV Crunch is…… that it is completely 100% free! Therefore, although Adobes Media Encoder can be used for many formats (just not .wma on OS X), FLV Crunch is comparable and doesn’t come with the huge price tag associated with the Adobe suites!
