Gilisoft Movie DVD Converter is a feature-rich program designed to rip DVD movies and turn them into different video formats such as MOV, AVI, FLV, M2TS and VOB.
It is also capable of extracting the audio stream to save it to AAC, AMR, FLAC, M4A, MKA, MP3 and so on, as well as to prepare videos for playback on various devices like iPhone, iPod and BlackBerry.
The setup procedure is carried out rapidly and error-free. The interface is pretty intuitive, letting users load DVD content from disc, mounted image, folder or ISO image.
Shown file information includes the channel and subtitle, along with a thumbnail. It is possible to preview the movie in the main frame and to capture screenshots, specify the output profile and destination, as well as to merge clips into a single file instead of processing them to separate items.
As far as audio and video parameters are concerned, you can choose a different audio and video quality, size, channel mode, frame rate, code, sample rate, volume level, and so on. Settings can be overwritten to an existing profile, or reset to default.
Gilisoft Movie DVD Converter also lets you trim videos by marking the start and end position or time values, crop them (e.g. black borders), make image adjustments (brightness, contrast, saturation), apply text or image watermarks, as well as load or remove subtitle files.
The program uses a decent amount of memory and delivers fair image and sound quality. There were no issues in our tests, as Gilisoft Movie DVD Converter did not hang, crash or display errors. Thanks to its wide range of customization preferences, Gilisoft Movie DVD Converter should please all user categories.
