WinAVI Video Converter
Video conversion isn't quite a difficult job because there are a lot of software solutions that promise to help you in this regard, but the biggest challenge is to find one that really works the way you need it to.
Among the many tools you can use, WinAVI Video Converter is an application that gets along pretty well with virtually all types of video files out there and it can convert them to a number of other formats, including DVD, VCD/SVCD, MPEG1/MPEG2, AVI, WMV/ASF or RMVB.
The utility has quite a pleasant and user-friendly interface which should help all types of users make the most of its features. Each type of encoding job has its dedicated module where you can load the files and choose the output folder as well as the conversion mode.
It's not mandatory to step into this side of the app, but WinAVI Video Converter also gives you the opportunity to change encoder settings, adjust the resulting video and audio options and also other preferences.
A neat feature we discovered during our tests is the ability to add subtitles to the videos it generates. You can set in detail the settings for color, margins, outline and fonts that the SRT, SSA and ASS subtitles will use.
WinAVI Video Converter is quite efficient when it comes to the actual conversion as it preserves quality of the original file and can still compress the file to optimize the output dimensions. The numerous configurations it offers as well as the ease of use can make this software one of the top choices for anyone.
