SuperSimple Video Converter
Best Video Converter is an application that allows you to turn audio and video files into numerous formats, including FLV, AVI, MP4, WMV, WMA, MP3 and WAV. But it can also prepare items for YouTube and DVD videos.
The interface of the program is plain and simple to work with. Media files can be imported into the file queue by using either the file browser or "drag and drop" function. Converting multiple items at once is possible.
The file list lets you find out the source and output name and format, location, duration, audio and video properties, along with the status of each entry. If you are satisfied with the default settings, then all you have to do is specify the output directory and profile, in order to start the conversion procedure.
Otherwise, you can modify audio and video properties when it comes to the resolution, frame rate, bit rate, resize mode, volume level and frequency. It is possible to create new output profiles but you cannot restore them to default.
Additionally, you can set Best Video Converter to overwrite existing files, to open the output directory and to play a sound after encoding, as well as remove an item from the list or clear the entire file queue. But you can also preview clips in an external media player and split them by marking the start and end time values.
The video encoding program uses a moderate amount of system resources to finish a task in reasonable time. It is very responsive, includes video tutorials and delivers clips with a good image and sound quality. No error dialogs have popped up during our tests and Best Video Converter did not freeze or crash. Unfortunately, you cannot specify the thread priority or set the app to power off the computer after encoding.
