Such is the demand for video converters that there seems to be more software of this type than any other. In fact, making a decision as to which conversion software to use may prove a difficult task. There are some that privilege comprehensiveness above simplicity of use, while others, on the contrary, bet for ease of use at the expense of inclusiveness. So, there appears to be software for all types of users and tastes.
Easy Video Convert honors its name with its ease of using the interface. Instead of using the create-a-list interface that is shared by so many converters, the designers have adopted a wizard-based solution. This way, you start by choosing one of the three wizards available: Convert DVD Movie, Convert Video File and Copy Files.
If you choose to convert a DVD movie, the steps will be similar to the ones in other conversion applications. First, you need to select a file and then configure your output preferences, such as video quality, bitrate, frame rate, resolution, cropping, time range and iPod options. Finally, press Convert and that is all. During the process, you will be able to preview the results. The Convert Video File wizard is very similar to the one describe above. The Copy Files option is intended to transfer files of any format from your computer to your music device, like iPod or PSP.
Easy Video Convert allows batch conversion, but differently from other conversion software, you will be able to have independent settings for each file. Additionally, it also allows splitting a video file into smaller clips of a definite size.
The developers have managed to design a rather comprehensive application capable of converting almost all popular video formats without compromising its ease of use.
- It is easy to use
- It converts almost all video formats
- It transfers video to iPod and PSP
- It allows batch conversion with independent settings for each file
