Resize multiple videos at once
Does anyone here use any free software to resize videos as some are getting rather large file sizes! I'd like the ability to do a folder at a time, I would use handbrake but the videos are to be used in powerpoint and handbrake only exports to .mp4 and mkv formats

Any video converter crashs on around 45% on any video!

Any Video Converter Works perfectly for me on all videos and always has - make sure you have full permissions to the output directory.

I got fed up with the various free ones, they just weren't powerful or reliable enough, so had to splash out on Xilisoft Video Converter - which I'd been using at home for a while... IMO it's the best video converter out there, and well worth the cost...
Video Converter: Convert video, AVI MPEG WMV MP4 MKV video converter

+1 for xilsoft stuff (only thing for me was it was slower than anvsofts)

Super convertor can do batch jobs: SUPER © - Media File Converter, Media File Encoder, Video Player, Audio Player, Media Player and convert pretty much anything into anything else. I'll save you the trouble of trying to locate the download link though (the software is far better than their web design skills!) and just point you here:

Our staff and students use Format Factory:
Link: Format Factory
It is a portable program and so we are running it from a central server based share at the moment [I will be deploying it to individual workstations at a later date]
We have had no complaints since we started using it.

Does anyone know if the anyvideo converter "freeware" licensing allows it to be used in schools or would we require a license/permission?

WinFF does batch jobs and is freeware (I think). We use it all the time - it is good.
WinFF - Free Video Converter
PS: It works good on Windows 7 as well.

I've been using Freemake Video Converter lately - it's fast (it can use GPU acceleration during conversion), supports lots of formats, and can even download and convert from YouTube and other video sites within the program. The only thing to watch out for is that it tries to install some useless "smilies" toolbar and homepage during setup, but you can uncheck that.

Another vote for Format Factory - I was really impressed with this for an ad-supported piece of software (not intrusive ads!) I used it to convert some .MTS files from our HD camcorders so that Windows DVD Maker could use them, it worked like a charm, and the output options are extremely flexible..
