Xilisoft DVD to DivX Converter SE is a simple-to-use program which allows you to encode DVDs to several media formats, including AVI, FLV, 3GP, MOV, M4A, MP3, MPG and WMV.
The interface of the software is clean and intuitive. You can import a DVD, ISO or IFO file by using either the file browser or the "drag and drop" method. Batch processing is allowed.
So, once you specify the destination folder and output format, you can proceed with the encoding process.
In addition, you can configure audio and video settings related to the size, quality, codec, frame rate, sample frequency rate, bit rate, aspect ratio, encode mode, channels, volume and others.
On top of that, you can preview videos and trim them by marking the start and end time, take snapshots, select the audio and subtitle language along with angle, retrieve DVD information and view file properties.
But you can also hide unidentifiable items from the list, select individual chapters for conversion, view a log file, set post-task actions (e.g. exit program, turn off computer), use a bit rate calculator, enable Xilisoft DVD to DivX Converter to run in the background in normal priority, customize the CPU core number, and others.
The DVD conversion program uses a pretty high amount of system resources, includes a brief help file for beginners, quickly finishes a task and manages to keep a very good image and sound quality. We haven't come across any issues during our tests and highly recommend Xilisoft DVD to DivX Converter to all users, regardless of their experience level.
