As the name of this program implies, Joboshare DVD to Mobile Phone Converter allows you to convert DVD videos to formats supported by mobile phones (e.g. 3GP, AVI, MP4). But it can also convert items to common video formats (e.g. ASF, MKV, WMV) or prepare them for other devices (such as iPod, iPhone, Zune), as well as extract the audio stream and save it to AAC, MP2, MP3, WAV, WMA and more.

The interface of the app is clean and intuitive. You can load a DVD folder or IFO file by using the file browser or folder tree. It is possible to create a queue and process multiple DVD videos at the same time.

The file list lets you read the name, duration, number of chapters, target type and status of each DVD. If you prefer the default settings, then all you need to do is specify the output, profile and directory, so that you can initialize the encoding procedure.

Advanced users are free to configure audio and video settings when it comes to the codec, bit rate, frequency, channel mode, frame rate, aspect ratio, quality and zoom mode. Settings can be saved to a new profile but they cannot be restored to their default values.

Additionally, you can preview clips in a built-in media player and trim them by marking the start and end position, as well as select separate chapters along with the audio language, subtitle track and angle.

In the "Preferences" area you can disable the audio or video while playing and set Joboshare DVD to Mobile Phone Converter to create a chapter or album folder in the output directory. But you can also configure DVD settings regarding the output frame rate, deinterlace filter, downsampling and subtitle offset. Options can be restored to default.

The DVD processing tool requires a moderate-to-high amount of system resources to finish a task in reasonable time. It comes with a help file and delivers a fair image and sound quality. We have not come across any issues during our tests. However, you cannot set the tool to automatically turn off the computer or to open the output directory after encoding.
