With modern mobile devices being fitted with powerful components that allow you to play multimedia files at stunning quality, they are heavily used in this regard. However, both videos and songs are found under various formats, not all compatible with what device you happen to own. Dedicated to what the name suggests, Kingconvert Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE Video Converter wants make any video readable by your device.
Running the application brings up a simple interface, holding all elements you need. A list displays all files you import, along with related details like path, duration, output format, size, conversion status and estimated time. There's also a preview section to snoop through videos, with an option to take snapshots that are automatically saved to a folder of your choice.
A disappointing aspect is that there is no way to tell what formats the application supports, since the dedicated file explorer reads files of all types. However, we managed to import MPG, 3GP, AVI, MP4 and FLV, which are pretty common, so we can say file support is decent.
Although the name tricks you into thinking a specific device is targeted, output can be rendered by a large majority of players, since it's under the MP4 format. The only feature that might make it appealing to the tablet in question is resolution, with preset output profiles being available under a few specifications. These can't be changed, although there's a side panel that highly-teases you with a false impression of drop-down menus and customizable fields.
With no quality settings to manage whatsoever, the only thing left to do is hit the “Start” button. All files go to a folder of your choice, which you can then open with a single mouse click. The process can take some time and the application seems to hang, although it does not, creating a little frustration. What's more, taking a look at the result leaves a lot more to be desired.
All things considered, we can state that Kingconvert Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE Video Converter is not really what you'd expect from an application dedicated to a high-end device. It doesn't bring anything new on the block, with others of it's kind getting the job done better and faster. Overall, the product is rough around the edges, both in terms of visuals, as well as functionality wise.
