    Choosing Video Format Conversion Software

    There are many different video file formats which videos can be stored in, and a common activity that many people need to do is to convert files between these formats (for example, when copying files from one device to another). For example, imagine if you've made a video using your mobile phone, but want to copy the file over to your computer, and put the file into a common PC video file format.

    Before mentioning any specific software, one important caveat: you should only copy/convert videos which you have the right to do so - for example, videos that you have created yourself, or that you have permission from the copyright holder to convert. You do not wish to violate copyright law, as doing so can carry some quite severe penalties! Please note: We are not lawyers, so we can not offer you legal advice, and we can not advise you on any particular situations or scenarios - please seek your own independent advice, as necessary.

    Okay, having said that, let's look at some of the programs that are available. Since I am not an expert on each of these programs, I have used information published by the vendors to explain what each program can do:
    1. Convert Genius


      In terms of what the program does, here's what the vendor says about this program: "Convert Genius has been manufactured as a solid, flexible and format-rich conversion package that could easily and efficiently convert video files among all popular formats. Convert Genius allows various customized options including output formats, audio/video codec, movie dimension, frame rate, etc.".

      If you check their website, basically, you'll see they support a huge range of file formats and a ton of different devices. In terms of compatability, any version of Microsoft Windows since 2000 (that includes Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows 2008, Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 7), are compatible.

      Here's some screenshots of the software in use:

      Key features of the program according to the vendor are:

      • Convert All Popular Video & Audio formats with High Definition & High Speed: Convert Genius is capable of converting videos of all popular formats like AVI, MP4, FLV, Xvid, WMV, DivX, MPEG, MOV, VOB, etc. as well as converting videos into audios like MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, AC3, M4A, etc. With a high definition output, Convert Genius quickly bridges a gap between your desired media formats.

      • Support All Portable Media Devices: Convert Genius supports all portable media devices such as iiPad, iPhone, iPod, PSP, Zune, Xbox, BlackBerry, Mobile 3GP, Apple TV, MP4/MP3 Player, etc. Thus you can enjoy any video on the go.

      • Powerful and Specific Settings for Outputs: Convert Genius has powerful functions offering multiple options of quality, codec, configurations for a certain output format or device. Different codec with specific resolution for different device helps you easily convert videos as the quality you requested.

      • Batch Media Conversion Supported: Since Convert Genius supports multithreaded process, you can convert multiple video files at once with just a few clicks, and all desired output formats would be able to apply in your devices immediately.

      • User-friendly and Easy-to-use: Redesigned and simplified user interface makes video conversion tasks easier to accomplish. The ready-made format presets enables even computer newbies to complete conversion with just a few clicks.


    2. Full Video Converter


      As far as I can tell this seems to be quite a similar program to Convert Genius - even the website and graphics logos are similar. Looking at the website, I believe the same vendor might even be offering both programs (the web designs of the two sites are similar, and the license agreement to the software also looks very similar), but I'm not entirely sure about that.

      Anyway this is how the vendor describes this program: "Full Video Converter is an easy to use program that lets you edit and convert video, audio, and animated images. This Total Video Converter is the best video converter software to convert between HD videos: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, AVCHD (*.m2ts, *.mts), MKV, HD WMV, MPEG2/MPEG-4 TS HD. It can convert videos from HD to SD, convert various general video formats: AVI, MPEG-4, WMV, DivX, H.264/AVC, and extract audio and pictures from videos. Even create a video from pictures further with flexible merging/clipping/editing/splitting features."
