WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe
WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is a simple-to-use program which comes with advanced features for encoding video files.
The interface of the tool may seem a little overwhelming at first glance, but it's actually quite intuitive.
You can import media files into the queue by using the file browser or the "drag and drop" function. Batch conversions are supported.
In the list you can view the name, information, duration and output format of each clip. The easiest way to convert a file is by specifying its output format and destination.
But you can also configure audio and video settings (e.g. quality, sampling rate, volume, format, image settings, resolution), as well as advanced options (e.g. CPU core use, deinterlacing, high quality engine).
Furthermore, you can preview the video in a small built-in media player, trim and crop it (settings can be restored to their default values), take a snapshot, set the renaming template, specify the default audio language and change output profiles.
The video converter uses a moderate amount of system resources, contains a comprehensive help file with snapshots and quickly finishes a task without freezing or crashing. We haven't come across any issues during our tests. The image and sound are kept at a very good quality in the output videos.
All in all, WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is an excellent tool for encoding clips and we highly recommend it to all user levels.
