Video’s come in various formats. Each of these formats often defines the users viewing experience and change the dynamics of the video itself.
Converting the video formats is never an easy task. Especially when the format and resolution of the video are incredibly high.
Though there is multiple paid software that enables video conversion to take place, there is a free option that is easier and much better to use.

What is a Hybrid?
Hybrid is a free software video converter that allows users to convert video to different formats. Based on an accessible open-source back-end of an popular video converter application, hybrid enables the user to create any type of video file. It includes audio codec support such as AAC, AC3, FLAC, MP3 and more.
There is a range of containers available. These are M2TS, MP4, WebM, MKV and Blue-Ray support as well. But the best part about the software is that almost all the popular codecs are downloaded and pre-installed within the software. Making external downloads and plugins unnecessary (except AAC and Nero AAC).
Codec, bitrate, audio formats, and containers are all controllable. There are a plethora of tools to adjust the output and is a perfect tool for those users that have a system that doesn’t support containers or particular codecs. But there is one drawback.
The application is quite advanced and not that simple to the user. A little insight should be necessary for making the full use of the converter.
Unfortunately, there is no support for macOS, but for Windows, only Windows 7, 8 and 10 is fully supported free of charge.
