If you are looking for an easy way to convert divx movies - or other video formats into other formats, then you may want to take a closer look at the excellent portable freeware called Pocket Divx Encoder.
Pocket Divx Encoder can be run from any location right after you have downloaded the application to your local system. It does not require an installation and will launch its main interface right away.
You need to select a target device on the first screen. Supported are various mobile devices, PCs and high definition TVs. Once you have made your selection you need to select a source video file that you want to convert. The destination is automatically picked based on the device that you have selected on the start screen.
You can modify various settings before you start the conversion or add the video to the queue if you want to add additional ones before you start the process.
Customization options include changing the video and audio quality of the processed videos, as well as modifying each video's brightness, saturation, contrast, volume and target resolution. You can also cut the film if you only want part of it converted.
You can click on preview to evaluate your settings before you start the conversion. That's helpful if you are not sure if the quality settings or modifications meet your demands. A click on convert starts the conversion right away. You can alternatively add the video to the queue to process multiple videos at once after you have added them all to it.
Two post-processing options are available. You can have the program synchronize the video and audio, and play back converted videos right after the conversion ends.
Queues can be saved which can be helpful if you need to stop the conversion and want to restart it at a later point in time.
