I recently reviewed the Daniusoft Media Converter Ultimate a great ripper and media converter. They asked me if I wanted to review another media converter for the price that is near and dear to computer users - FREE. It can take in quite a number of different video and audio formats:
The only limitations on the program is the Watermark and Plug-in Subtitle do not work in the free version. You are limited to doing only five file conversions at a time.
I used it to convert some .mts video files from my Canon movie camera, and even mpg, wmv files I’ve downloaded. They all converted with no problem. I did find a problem with a TV show I imported from a Windows Media recording (.dvr-ms). The audio did not quite match the video. Their support told me to take it in through the DirectShow file and I had no problem after that. I even imported a 3gp video file from my cell phone and converted that into an mpg file.
You can also use it convert a video file to MP3, WAV, or WMA thus extracting only the audio.
All of this is pretty good, but you can do even more with the Daniusoft Video Converter. You can edit the video. Options include: cropping video, trimming video length, and merging two or more video clips. You can also do effects on the video such as:
Have you created a video in your camera where you turned it sideways to get the height in? You then take it into your video editor and have to flip it (if it has that feature.) Well this can flip it for you also, along with Horizontal and Vertical flips. You can also take a snapshot of you video.
If you have a need for video conversion you really should take a look at this.
