All you need is the right media player to play virtually all video and audio formats on your PC. Why would someone want to convert videos if that is the case? Some PC users may not know about those versatile video players and use a program like Windows Media Player which is limited when it comes to supported media formats. There are other reasons though, like the desire to watch the video on your smartphone or the big telly, or to reduce the size of your media collection on your hard drive without reducing the quality to make room for additional files.
Video to Video Converter is a free portable program for Windows that leaves little to be desired when it comes to that process. The program is very versatile, and suitable for both inexperienced and experienced users. The video conversion process is divided into two parts. You first add video files individually or in bulk to the program. Video to Video Converter displays a selection menu afterwards with hundreds of output profiles.
The profiles are divided into tabs that display general video and audio conversion options, device-specific conversion options and options to convert to a YouTube or HDTV format.
Inexperienced users can pick a format from the list and be done with that. Experienced users on the other hand can modify quality and output related video and audio settings on the right.
Once you are done with the selection, you are taken back to the main window. Here you can click on convert to start the conversion process. A preview option is available that plays the selected output format in an extra window on the screen while the conversion is running.
The software can do more than conversions though. You find additional options under the Tools menu which you need to run from there to use. This includes options to split or merge video files, burn previously saved DVD video format files to DVD, convert a DVD to video, or join audio files.
The program leaves little to be desired. From being user friendly to providing enough options for experienced users, the incredible support for output device specific formats, and the option to burn videos to DVD, and rip DVDs to video: it is all there included in this portable application. Thumbs up.Advertisement
