4Videosoft DVD to MPEG Converter is designed to help users in converting and ripping videos from their DVDs. The software supports most common multimedia output formats (AVI, MPG, MP3, MP4, AAC or FLV).
The program loads discs and automatically displays the chapters of the film. Users can then target specific fragments or convert the whole DVD.
Entries can also be merged together, so users are not limited to the original DVD layout. This increased flexibility is great when dealing with multiple items!
The application not only allows selective conversion, but also batch-processing. The process is very simple: check (or uncheck) chapters and then press “Convert”. 4Videosoft DVD to MPEG Converter will then process each entry in the order selected by users.
The interface is wonderfully suited towards this goal, as there are no surplus buttons or menus. All the core functions are displayed as clear buttons, placed near the generous main working window.
An interesting feature of this tool is that it allows users to adjust certain parameters before actually generating output files. Basic picture operations can be performed, such as saturation, contrast, brightness and hue refinements.
There are also more advanced options available to users, like video trimming, cropping and watermarking. The latter can be performed either with plain text or with user-defined images.
Having all these instruments means that there is plenty of room for improvement, before any file is saved to disk.
All in all, 4Videosoft DVD to MPEG Converter does not score any points for originality. The video conversion market is quite full of similar products; nonetheless, the utility is perfectly suited to the job at hand and functionality-wise the application is almost flawless!
