Replay Converter is an easy-to-use application designed for audio and video conversion. It turns videos into the AVI, MPEG and WMV formats or prepares them for iPod devices (MP4 format).
But it can also encode audio into MP3 or WMA for CDs, as well as extract the audio stream from video clips and save them to the aforementioned file types.
The app's wrapped in a standard interface with a well-organized layout. With the help of the file browser ("drag and drop" is not supported), audio and video files can be imported into the workspace. Working with multiple items in a single session is possible.
The file queue reveals the path, default start time, length and status for each item. Without making any further modifications, you can initialize the conversion procedure by picking the output directory and file type.
However, experienced users are free to tinker with audio and video properties in regard to the frame size and rate, bit rate, frequency, channel mode and volume level. Plus, you can use the source file's audio or video codec, flip the clip or disable the audio stream. Unfortunately, restoring settings to their default values or creating profiles is not possible.
Another important feature of Replay Converter focuses on burning data to an audio or data CD, or DVD (with the NTSC or PAL TV system type). Furthermore, you can create an ISO image on the hard drive. Other settings can be configured through the Options screen. For instance, you can enable sound alerts after a successful conversion task, disable DirectShow codecs installed by Replay Converter, enable the automatic transfer of files to iTunes, as well as view log details in a plain text document.
The media processing program is pretty low-demanding concerning the CPU and system memory, so it shouldn't affect the runtime of other active processes. It has a good response time and finishes a task rapidly, delivering output files with a fair image and sound quality. Aside from the fact that the app hang while we attempted to create an ISO image, it was stable throughout out evaluation. However, we must take into account the fact that Replay Converter has not been updated for a while.
