Turbo Video Converter
Turbo Video Converter is a software application whose purpose is to help you convert videos between different formats, cut or join clips, apply special effects, download videos from YouTube, as well as rip and convert DVDs, and burn DVDs with interactive menu.
Clean feature lineup
Files can be added in the working environment using the drag-and-drop support. You can opt for a detailed list or thumbnail preview mode.
Videos can be watched directly in the main window of the program. You can play, pause or stop the current selection, adjust the volume, go to the previous or next video from the list, seek for a position in the video streams, activate the full screen view, as well as capture and export frames to JPEG, PNG, BMP, or GIF file format.
Turbo Video Converter supports batch processing, which means you can convert multiple clips at the same time. There are so many output formats that the application organizes them with the aid of three main categories, namely Formats, Devices, and Websites.
You can convert videos to AVI, MPEG, 3GP, MOV, TS, FLV, VOB, MKV, H.264 or other ones. The utility lets you encode clips to file formats compatible with game consoles and Apple, BlackBerry, HTC, LG, Motorola, Samsung and other devices. Clips can be optimized to various website formats, such as YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Yahoo! Video, and Dailymotion.
Several conversion settings give you the possibility to adjust the video parameters (codec, frame size, frame rate, and bitrate) and audio codec, channels, sample rate, and bitrate.
Video editing and other features
Turbo Video Converter helps you apply various effects to your clips, such as saturation, grayscale, old film, negative, sketch, spray effect, and color noise. You may crop clips, add text and image watermark, as well as perform color adjustments to brightness, contrast saturation and color hue. There’s also support for an automatic color enhancement mode.
What’s more, you are allowed to extract sound from the video, cut or join clips, select the output folder, rip and convert DVDs, burn DVD with interactive menu, as well as export files to your website or blog by choosing between several preset video players, adjusting the size of the player on the webpage, and tweaking video parameters (FLV, H.264 or SWF file format, frame size, and bitrate).
An efficient video converter, ripper and DVD burner
All in all, Turbo Video Converter accommodates a diverse set of features for managing videos. It is intuitive so it can be used by beginners and professionals alike. On the downside, the YouTube video downloading option did not work during our tests.
