Bigasoft Total Video Converter can transcode media files. The application has the main advantage of supporting an extensive range of formats. It has a user-friendly interface and, if you have already used a similar tool before, it is unlikely you have any difficulties to use this one. As a valuable addition, this program lets you perform basic editing changes to the source clips.
It is good that the converter can import not only individual files but also complete folders and even download clips directly from YouTube. Sadly, it cannot record from a camera or the screen. Once you have created a list, you can preview the contents of the imported items.
Deciding upon an output profile is quite difficult for most users, particularly when they are not familiar with the formats their devices support. Therefore, most converters (and Bigasoft Total Video Converter is not an exception) now come with multiple presets that are identified with the names of their supporting devices.
Various editing features are allowed. In this regard, the program lets you change the original soundtrack or embed subtitles from an external file. Moreover, you can adjust image parameters, apply visual effects and crop the video frame. In my opinion, the most valuable features are those that allow you to extract fragments from the source clips and merge them into a new sequence. Unfortunately, you can extract only one fragment from each file.
I am glad this tool supports converting a list of media files in a single session, but this is something most modern converters can do. So, something I really appreciate from this application is that it allows using individual conversion profiles for each of the source items. Not only that, you can import the same file more than once and convert it to multiple formats in a row.
All in all, Bigasoft Total Video Converter can be the right application for you. It is suitable for any type of user, has most of the features you need and produces lossless results. The product is shareware and can be tried at no cost with the limitation that only the first five minutes of each clip can be converted.
