As the name of this tool suggests, DVR-MS to MPEG Converter allows you to turn DVR-MS files (Microsoft Digital Video Recordings) into MPEG items. It can be easily handled, even by less experienced users.
The app is wrapped in a clean and intuitive interface where you can import DVR-MS files by using only the file browser because the 'drag and drop' method is not supported. It is possible to process multiple items at the same time.
So, once you establish the output directory, you can initialize the conversion procedure. In addition, you can remove an item from the list and open the destination folder.
The straightforward video encoder requires a low-to-moderate amount of CPU and system memory, in order to finish a task in reasonable time. It has a good response time and did not freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs during our tests.
On the downside, DVR-MS to MPEG Converter comes with pretty limited features. For example, you cannot configure audio and video settings (e.g. frame rate, aspect ratio, volume level, sample rate). Plus, you cannot specify the thread priority, set DVR-MS to MPEG Converter to open the output directory when all tasks are done or minimize the app to the system tray. Nevertheless, DVR-MS to MPEG Converter is easy to learn how to use, thanks to its intuitive layout.
