Media converters are a popular choice to convert photo, video and audio files into different formats. The multitude of different formats in all media categories makes these programs a must have on most computer systems. Possible usage scenarios are to convert a Youtube video into a format that a portable video player or gaming system can play, reducing the photo sizes of the new shiny 10+ Megapixel camera so that they can be send to friends more easily or to convert audio files so that they can be played on a mobile mp3 player or cell phone.
Media Cope is a free media converter that supports photo, audio and video conversions and then some. The application uses tabs for the different program options.
Media Cope's strength is its versatility. It could use advanced quality settings in the video and audio categories, as it is only possible to select a quality level but not the bitrate and other related settings.
The software is a solid free media converter otherwise, download available from the developer's website, should be compatible with most Microsoft Windows operating systems. Tested on Windows 7 Pro.
Video playback and conversions did not seem to work in the current version of Media Cope, the error Problem playing the file was displayed trying to play the file while video conversions resulted in a 0-byte file.
This is something that the developer's should fix immediately.
