Winff is a frontend for FFMPEG that runs on Windows XP to Windows 10 and Linux. It will convert most any video file that FFmpeg will convert. WinFF does multiple files in multiple formats at one time. You can for example convert mpeg's, flv's, f4v, and mov's, all into avi's all at once. F4V to AVI.

Version history / Release notes / Changelog

WinFF 1.5.5 is mostly just a cleaned up and repacked winff 1.5.4 for possibly the final version.

Issue 209:

2 Bugs:
1 on drag drop, numfiles was not initialised. Could countain random
number, not actual files dragged and dropped
max number of jobs was not being incremented on dragdrop.
now, if you dragdrop and the file list goes > max number of jobs, we add
50 more rows to filelist.
note: file list is initially limited to 100 jobs because of the memory
overhead of maintaining arrays of the filenames, command lines, options
settings, etc
enhancement: added hint for file list showing number of files in queue
when cursor not over a filename

Issue 211
Use of double quotes replaced by single quote. Cosmetic, done

Mar 4, 2018 Version: 1.5.5 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

WinFF is a fantastic tool. I've used it for years for various encoding projects.

I wanted to add this note as it might be useful for those using 1.5.4 portable edition.

I came across an issue where Preferences were not saved.

The Preference settings are stored in cfg.xml file in the \User\Winff path. I tried to edit the file manually and still, the settings remained unchanged. Specifically the default destination folder and "remember last used directory" values. I eventually discovered something in the X-Winff.ini file. It contains instructions that look to replace any changed values:


By removing this segment of the file, any changes in preferences remain saved. Just open the ini file, select this section, delete and save the file.

Hopefully this is useful for anyone who has this issue.

I've always found this an excellent front end for ffmpeg. It's very easy to customize, modify or build presets allowing for batch encoding and simplifying command line modifications.

It's also easy enough to swap out different ffmpeg versions-- say "normal" ffmpeg and ffmbc to gain specific functionality. Though one should be aware that, given the ever changing nature of ffmpeg, the presets are optimized for the included version

Apr 2, 2014 Version: 1.5.3 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 8/10

Reduced a 1.76 Gb .mov to a 475 Mb .avi with no big issues. It did alter the aspect ratio slightly but it plays well with my small memory vid card. Straight out of the box, as well. I didn't delve into any other settings. I don't know all there is to know about video construction and I realize it may not work well for others I'd like to resize smaller. Thanks

Doesn't work. Crashes straight off the bat on an mkv file.
