XMedia Recode is a software application designed to help you convert audio and video files, targeting both beginners and experienced users with an innovative approach.
The utility works with most formats out there and it also has an option to convert DVD and Blu-Ray discs into any format you like. But probably the ace up its sleeve is actually the way it manages to address novice user and more experienced ones at the same time.
Different output profiles to work with
First of all, those uninitiated have the option to choose one of the many built-in profiles for a one-click conversion job. For example, if you wish to convert an AVI video and transfer it on your iPhone, you have the option to pick the iPhone model and let the app do the whole job.
At the same time, power users can step into the more advanced side and modify bitrate, keyframe interval, framerate, rate control mode and many other settings regarding both the video and audio chapters, using the other configuration tabs.
The conversion process goes very smoothly and the user also has the option to keep an eye on the running process by opening the 'Jobs' tab. The preferences dialog is minimal and is less likely to help you unless there's a problem with the tool, as all the important settings are actually stored in the main window.
A top media encoder on the market
As a conclusion, if you are looking for an app that's able to work with virtually all audio and video formats out there, XMedia Recode should be one of your top choices.
