miro video converter.pngOver the last few years I’ve written about several video converters, but I always felt that none of them offered the simplicity that they I know they should. I’ve found some that I’ve really liked, but how many people want to mess with the nitty gritty details when they want to throw a video on a mobile device? The creators of the open source Miro application felt the same way, and decided that they should come up with their own app to address this.

The Miro Video Converter is the simplest video conversion utility that I’ve ever used. The interface of the app only has two areas: one where you drag-and-drop the file you want to convert, and another where you select the kind of device you want to put the video on. The supported devices include:

  • Droid
  • Nexus One
  • G1
  • Magic / myTouch
  • Droid Eris
  • HTC Hero
  • Cliq
  • Behold
  • iPhone
  • iPod Touch
  • iPod Classic
  • iPod Nano
  • PSP

What kind of video files is it able to convert? Miro Video Converter supports AVI, H264, MOV, WMV, XVID, Theora, MKV, and FLV. Needless to say that covers all of the most popular formats, and is what makes this so useful. Go ahead and grab it if you have videos you want optimized for your mobile device.
