Inshot –  Video to MP3 Converter

Inshot –  Video to MP3 Converter

The first app in the list allows you to convert video to audio. There are many apps that convert videos but some of the space on the mobile is occupied with music videos which I never watch. I can easily convert all the videos to audio to store some space on the mobile. You can select between MP3 and AAC as the output and adjust the bitrate of the audio. The inbuilt editor enables you to cut the clips on the conversion screen. The app also has some amazing features that you can use to adjust channel, frequency, Fade in/out, and volume.

Also, the app has a dedicated video and audio cutter that comes quite handy while snipping additional bits from media files. It is the best app that performs well and you can then use it to optimize your media library.

Price: The app is totally free on Play Store but comes with a paywall. Some advanced features such as various file conversion, merge 3 or more files, fade in/out, and music cover is locked which can be bought with a one-time fee of $3.99.

Some of the compatible formats include but they are not limited to 3GP, MP4, MPG, WMA, FLV, MKV, MOV, VOB, etc.

Like I said earlier, the app is quite simple or easy to use. When you select a video to convert, it will display you two of the most famous options “Convert to MP3” and “Convert to MP4.” If you wish to convert your video to the other format then all you need to do is select the third option “Expert Mode.” On this display, you can select the custom file format, trim or cut, modify audio quality, crop the video, modify the resolution, modify video quality, etc. Once done with the settings, tap on the “Convert” button and you are good to go.
