Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate allows you both to convert an existing video file into any other format supported and to rip the contents of any video DVD and re-encode it into the format of your choice. Besides, you can also modify and enhance your media files using the program’s simple editing functionality.
The program has a functional and nice-to-look-at interface that is both well designed and intuitive. Its batch capabilities allow you to add as many files as required, and to apply to them any of the output profiles provided. These profiles are organized both by format and device, so that you can choose the one that better fits your needs. Each of these preset profiles can also be customized, in case your favorite device requires specific settings. All the most widely used codecs and devices are well represented in this list – MP4, AVI, MPEG, MOV, MP3, iPad, iPhone, etc.
The editing capabilities of this video conversion tool will let you trim your videos to leave out any unwanted fragments (TV commercials, for instance), crop them, change their aspect ratio, as well as rotate and mirror them. The program also comes with some easy-to-use video effects, which will surely enhance your video files and give them a different and artistic touch. Finally, you can also add watermarks and subtitles from SRT files to your videos.
Unlike other video re-encoders, Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate is also a very useful DVD authoring tool. Thus, once your videos have been conveniently ripped, converted, and/or enhanced, you are given the possibility of burning them to DVD without leaving this tool. You are offered an interesting set of menu templates complete with an attractive background image and all the controls you need to navigate the disc and select specific chapters.
As a bonus, this video utility is also an efficient YouTube downloader. You can use this feature in two ways – either by pasting into the program’s interface the URL of the video you wish to download, or by using the download button that the program adds automatically to your YouTube player. Either way, the program will download all your favorite YouTube videos in the format and the resolution of your choice and will allow you to use these videos as source files for further editing, conversion, or DVD authoring.
