Wondershare Video Converter Pro is a straightforward software application specialized in converting video and audio files to a wide range of file formats. In addition, it comes with support for video editing capabilities, such as trimming and cropping options, special effects, text or image watermarks and subtitles, as well as downloading capabilities.
The application excels in the visual department. It successfully integrates a powerful suite of features into an intuitive layout, so even rookies can easily get used to working with it.
You can use the drag-and-drop support for adding video and audio files into the working environment, build up a list with the items that you want to encode using batch processing, as well as merge all videos into a single file.
Wondershare Video Converter Pro allows you to import data from various file formats, such as WTV, AMR, MOD, MTS, AVI, MP4, MPEG, 3GP, WMV, ASF, DAT, MOV, FLV, MKV, DV, H.264, MP3, AAC, and many others.
When it comes to exporting options, you may select between a wide range of formats grouped by categories, namely Video (e.g. MP4, DV, ASF), Audio (e.g. AAC, WAV, MP3), HD (e.g. AVI, MKV, MOV), Web (e.g. FLV, SWF, H.263 for YouTube) and 3D (e.g. MKV, WMV, AVI). Plus, you may encode files to several mobile device and game profiles, such as Apple, Samsung, Game, Motorola, LG, HTC, and Sony.
It comes with a comprehensive list of file formats used for exporting so sometimes it may prove to be quite tricky to find the target profile that you are interested in. You can solve this small inconvenience by creating a list with your favorite output profiles.
What’s more, you can specify the saving directory and alter the output quality (high quality, standard, small size), video parameters (encoder, frame rate, resolution, bit rate) and audio options (encoder, channel, sample rate and bit rate).
Wondershare Video Converter Pro helps you insert subtitles (SRT, ASS or SSA file format) and alter movie metadata by grabbing information from the Internet (e.g. actors, directors, release date, image, genre, tagline, description).
The application allows you to play, pause or stop the current file, go to the previous or next item from the list, adjust the volume, seek for a position in the video stream, and enable the full screen mode.
Editing features can be applied in order to trim videos, flip and rotate them to different angles, modify the aspect ratio, crop clips, apply various special effects and view the adjustments in real time, and modify the volume, brightness, contrast and saturation.
Plus, you can enable the deinterlacing mode, embed text or image watermark and adjust its transparency, as well as change the transparency and position of the subtitles. Audio editing options can help you trim files.
Leaving aside its conversion and video editing functions, the tool also includes a built-in downloader which helps you grab clips for offline viewing. You may add a custom URL, select one of the output file formats and download only the current clip or an entire playlist. Additionally, you may download and extract MP3 audio files from YouTube videos.
All in all, Wondershare Video Converter Pro mixes up an intuitive layout with a powerful suite of features and configuration settings. It provides all the options you need for converting, editing and downloading videos, and suits beginners and professionals alike. It offers very good output quality but it eats up CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer may be burdened.
