WinFF is a handy video file converter that helps to batch convert videos and provides preview facility. Thus, you can watch how output video will look, before starting the actual conversion process. It is a Graphical User Interface of FFmpeg (that includes huge audio video codec library to convert videos), so you will be able to convert almost any video file, such as: mp4, vob, avi, flv, mkv, ogg, mpeg, etc. It is also useful to extract audio from video files or convert audio to video.
What makes WinFF different than many similar video converters is that it supports output for different devices. Like you can convert videos for phone (blackberry, iPod, Android, etc.) compatible formats, PSP, websites, etc.
Each device/format contains multiple presets to start the conversion. For example, for mobile formats, it supports 3gp, 3gp2, and mp3 presets.

Interface of WinFF supports drag n drop feature to easily add multiple video files to bulk convert them. After adding the video files, simply select output device or format, preset of selected format, destination location, and start the conversion with Convert button.
Immediately, command prompt window will open up to start the conversion process, and each input video will be converted frame by frame. Conversion process would be slow, depending on selected output format, size and quantity of input videos.
If you are not sure how output video will look, then it is better to first preview the output using available button.

For new users, it might be a difficult task for users to set right values for all these settings. Therefore, there must be some preset details available for all these features. Like it is possible with some audio video converter tools, such as Apowersoft Free Online Video Converter, Easy-Data Mediacenter Video Converter, SuperSimple Video Converter, etc.
