WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is a video converter for the Windows operating system that has been specifically designed to process HD videos.
While the program is optimized for HD, it can also load and process SD videos making it an universally usable converter for all popular video formats. The software uses the same design that other programs developed by the company; so, if you have used any of those, you should feel right at home.
Video files can be loaded by using the Add button in the header of the program. It is here possible to add one or multiple videos to the processing queue. All video files that you add to the program this way are listed afterwards in the interface. Information such as the clip name, bitrate, playtime, duration, or codecs is displayed there as well.
The output folder and the start and end time of each video that you have loaded in the program can be configured individually.
The lower half of the screen displays various output options in tabs. This ranges from converting the selected videos to general video formats, HD video, Apple, Sony or Microsoft specific formats, portable devices and audio.
Each selection displays a list of possible formats that can be selected for the output. The general video tab for instance can be used to convert the videos to avi, mpeg, wmv or a format supported by YouTube, while the HD Video formats basically list the same formats but with better quality settings.
A few processing options are displayed beneath the format selection including audio and video quality settings, cpu core selection, high quality rendering engine and others.
The video converter is easy to use considering that the output format settings can usually be left in their default state. The multi core cpu support improves the rendering speed of the program considerably.
WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is currently offered for free at the WinX website. The software retails for $49.95 regularly. The offer to download the program for free is provided until March 15.
Update: The program is no longer free of charge. You can snag a full key however if you share the page on Facebook or Twitter using the buttons provided on it.
