Wondershare UniConverter is an impressive video conversion application. Wondershare UniConverter is developed thinking of offering a true Swiss Army knife when it comes to working with video. It will also allow us to download only the audio of a certain video, and of course, many other functions related to video, such as transferring, editing video, compressing videos so that they occupy less and have the same quality, and other functionalities.
This application basically combines multiple functions and features within itself, offering users the possibility to convert video very easily with different start and end resolutions with original profiles and also customizable.
Wondershare UniConverter should be considered as a suite of applications and not as a single application. The large number of features it has makes it a very interesting tool that allows you to download a video to convert within a few clicks.
It empowers you to convert audiovisuals from almost all formats to audio, keeping the quality of the audio as much as possible, as well as downloading an audiovisual just by having the link to it, and later being able to edit it if you so wish.
It supports some virtual reality devices and 4K video formats like MP4, AVI, MOV, MKV, so it is ready for the new devices and new platforms on the market. Its aim is to allow you to enjoy videos on different devices, as it helps to play MP4 on TV, for example. You can use it to watch videos on Apple devices, Android devices, VR, game consoles, etc.
One of its main features is being 30 times faster than other options, made possible by using lossless conversion technology and supporting GPU acceleration (it supports hardware acceleration from NVIDIA CUDA, NVENC, and Intel HD Graphics ).
The program also instantly detects all the videos from our source to perform the desired conversion, be it from iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets, professional cameras, DVDs, USB sticks, external hard drives, computers, and more.

One thing that sets this video conversion software apart from others is its user-friendly and user-friendly interface. There are many people who are not that tech-savvy and find it difficult to deal with software and computer programs. But with UniConverter, it becomes really easy and undemanding.
Wondershare has provided its software with an interface with which you will feel familiar, especially if you have used any of its other programs in the past, since the distribution of the elements and the design is quite similar, with the only difference being the color. In addition, the large number of tools that you can use in it makes it one of the most complete options on the market.
When you start UniConverter, you will see a very well made designed and modern-looking interface. At the top, you will see five highlighted icons that will take you to five different tools that this software offers (with many other options as well).
Uniconverter has left us with a very good taste in general. The aspect that has been most pleasant to us has undoubtedly been its interface: clean, simple, very visual, and with the necessary amount of text.
It even supports drag and drop. The design is so neat and orderly that a beginner can easily use and get what they want. The catalog of options when converting files is the widest that we have been able to see in a converter program, and if we add all the additional functions to this we have a fairly complete suite.
The program is available for both Windows and MacOS,
When it comes to this Windows App, you can use it on some very old devices. You can use it on Windows XP all the way up to Windows 10. UniConverter is not available on all platforms and is limited to Windows and macOS because editing is mostly done on computer systems or windows / macOS will be the primary system. So it makes sense if the software is available on these two platforms. Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate for Mac is the same as for Windows.
You don’t need a powerful machine to run this software. However, if you have enough resources, this tool can perform the tasks efficiently.
Also, it has both a paid version and a free one. The latter, as has become customary for developers, offers users quite a few freedoms , making the gap between the standard version and the Premium version not so wide.
The software is available on the official website and can be downloaded and installed directly without any hassle.
Speed and performance
During my Uniconverter review, I noticed that the speed of conversion was fairly higher than other converters available on the internet. After 2 days of usage, I must say Wondershare UniConverter is a fast and reliable video converter. But, performance naturally depends a lot on your computer’s technical data.
You probably know that converting videos is very complex – especially if you change the resolution and make several adjustments to the original file. When it comes to the performance of this application, it is difficult to provide specific numbers, as it depends on the power of your computer. However, we can say that I am more than happy with the speed with which UniConverter ran my tests, even if it is not the fastest available.
For example, I used this application to convert a 1080p video resolution with a file size of 168 MB. The output file was 720p video and the format was not changed (it was MP4 at both ends). Therefore, I have significantly reduced the size and resolution of the video file – from 1080p to 720p for a video of 5 Minutes. The whole process took a little 6 minutes.
Although conversion is the main purpose of this program, we must say that it is much more than a simple converter, since it allows you to perform other tasks flawlessly.
As mentioned, the video converter is the main element of this program and it shows because it is also the most complete. From it we can convert more than 1000 video formats. Also, when it comes to converting the video, the possibilities that Wondershare UniConverter amazes us with features. You can select the thumbnail that you want to appear, add effects and watermarks , trim the video to only convert a part and, of course, choose both the output format and the compression you want it to have.
Not only limited to videos, Wondershare UniConverter can also convert your audio files from one format to another based on your needs. The application allows you to choose the output file format before starting the conversion process.
The program’s editor is very easy to use, and it provides you with tools that you may need. It allows you to create professional level video and extra features with which you can retouch the videos that you convert or download.
With this editor you can copy, paste and move any scene or fragment of the video that you are editing. Besides this, it allows you to add effects and filters to the image. Of course, if you are using the free version, your videos will be rendered with a watermark. This will not be the case if you pay for the premium subscription.
Save videos from any site with one click
After the converter, the download function is the most helpful in this program. It is quite simple so we will not go into much detail explaining it . With it you can download a video from any page as long as you have the direct link to that video.
The downloader gives you the freedom to choose how high the quality of the video you are downloading will be, being able to set both the image and audio level, as well as the format, which greatly influences the final size of the video you download. The paid version even allows you to download thumbnails and subtitles. Surprisingly, I found out using this feature multiple times during my Uniconverter Review.
Burn to DVD
The third most powerful function of the program is to record the videos that we convert, download or edit on a DVD disc. The tool works so flawlessly when it comes to burning to DVD. This option is enhanced by the possibility of editing the videos before proceeding to record them , which allows us to cut and paste fragments of the video, as well as add filters to the image to give it a different tone.
The speed with which this program is going to perform will depend directly on the hardware you have , but in general it is quite fast in this sense.
The “Transfer” option is pretty basic. What it allows you is to link to a smart device to send the files and later edit them in UniConverter.
In general, this is what this tool does and the devices with which it is compatible are the following:
- IOS devices.
- Android devices.
- Physical storage disks.
The toolbox is a section where you will find an interesting range of extra functions making things much easier and considerably improving your efficiency.
Among all the tools that we can find here are:
Some useful features include:
- GIF Maker: allows us to create an animated. GIF image from a video that we have previously converted or downloaded.
- Image converter: this is the program’s secondary converter, which is intended to work with images.
- Screen recorder: this tool allows you to record the screen of our computer, and the video that we will obtain as a result will be of good quality, this being one of the most powerful secondary options of the software.
- Metadata repair: if you have a video that we cannot play because its metadata is damaged, with this tool we can repair it automatically by simply dragging it to the software interface.
- Video compressor: as its name says, it allows you to compress video files to make them less heavy and take up less storage space.
- Transmit to TV: allows you to transmit our videos so that they can be viewed on the SmartTV or any television with a TV Box device.
- VR converter: with it you can convert normal videos to virtual reality (VR) format, obtaining satisfactory results.
- CD recorder: as with the DVD recorder, in this function you can do the same but with our audios, to have them immortalized on a CD.
- CD extractor: this will allow you to extract files saved on a read-only CD.
Some of the exclusive features of Wondershare UniConverter include
GPU Acceleration – Accelerate conversion speed, supporting NVIDIA CUDA, NVENC, and Intel HD Graphics hardware acceleration.
Optimization for Multi-Core Processor – Make full use of the multicore processor to speed-up conversion.
Convert Videos to Different Formats Simultaneously in Batches – Video Converter Ultimate allows you to convert several videos to different formats at one time with one click.
Merge Multiple Videos into One – Do you want to combine video clips into one for convenient viewing? Video Converter Ultimate combines them for conversion.

The list is endless. With all these functions, Wondershare UniConverter is a very complete program in which you will have all the tools to work with your videos personally or professionally. Its ease of use makes it suitable for all users, even those without advanced knowledge.

However, I must say that the free version can do all your basic tasks effectively. You can install the free version from here with limited features and use it without any issues. The free version can perform all the basic functions that you may need from any video converter.

While converting, it took about 650MB of RAM and took about 85-90% of CPU (I was using an i3 powered PC). While using it, I didn’t encounter any lag, and the process seemed very smooth, even with my not-so-powerful PC.
