Re-encoding your video files to make them more portable or playable by your favorite software players is a simple and rewarding task with iSkysoft Video Converter. Its dark-themed interface is both elegant and intuitive, and its wide range of formats supported and output profiles available make it suitable for all types of users and nearly all kinds of video files.

You can select any number of video files as source, and create a conversion list that iSkysoft Video Converter will batch-process in one single operation. A panel on the right-hand side will display all the presets available, neatly organized by device, format, and your own favorite profile. Advanced users can always tweak some of the settings to achieve just the right type of file that is more suitable to their target device or player. Note, however, that the output profile you select will be automatically assigned to all the files on the conversion list – regrettably, the program doesn’t offer you the possibility of converting a set of files into different output formats in one single operation.

Before enabling the conversion process, the program offers you an interesting choice of editing tools and features, where you can tailor the source files to fit your preferences. Thus, you will find tools to rotate and crop your videos, to trim unwanted fragments, to add creative effects to them, to correct some lighting issues (brightness, contrast, saturation, etc.), and to add watermarks and subtitles. You can also check your source videos using the built-in video player, where you may also take snapshots of your favorite frames.

The program comes with an online video downloader that works like a charm with URLs from a wide variety of media sites, such as YouTube, Google Videos, Vevo, Facebook, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Vimeo, and many more (actually, up to more than a hundred). Alternatively, you can download only the audio stream of your favorite online videos in MP3 format. The video files will be downloaded in their native format and the original quality settings, but you can always edit and add them to the conversion list, just like any other video file in your collection.

The conversion process is fast and produces the expected results. iSkysoft Video Converter works seamlessly with HD videos, a wide choice of standard video files, and all the most common audio codecs.
