Softpedia Editor's Review for ImTOO DVD to iPod Converter
A powerful DVD ripper for iPod video, MP4 and iPod audio: MP3, AAC, M4A
Written by Elena Opris on April 6th, 2012
As its name implies, ImTOO DVD to iPod Converter is a tool that you can use to encode DVDs to formats supported by iPods, as well as MOV, MP3, WAV, AAC and others.
The interface of the program is clean and easy to navigate through. You can import a DVD, ISO or IFO file by using either the file browser or "drag and drop" method.
In the list you can view the name, duration, number of chapters, output profile and size, as well as status of the DVD.
So, all you have to do is specify the output destination and format, in order to proceed with the conversion process.
But you can also preview the clip in a built-in media player, split files, take a snapshot, retrieve DVD information, view file properties, as well as view and select individual chapters for conversion.
Furthermore, you can configure audio and video settings when it comes to size, quality, bit rate, frame rate, zoom, aspect ratio, bit rate tolerance, encode mode, and others.
In addition, you can edit metadata (e.g. title, author, comment, copyright), select the audio and subtitle stream, view a log file, set post-task actions (e.g. exit program, shut down computer), enable ImTOO DVD to iPod Converter to run in the background, calculate the bit rate, set CPU priority, change the interface skin and language, and more.
ImTOO DVD to iPod Converter takes up a very high amount of system resources, includes a well-written step-by-step guide for beginners and quickly finishes a conversion task without popping up errors. The image and sound in the output files are kept at a very good quality. Too bad the demo version is severely limited. Otherwise, we highly recommend this video convertor to all users.
