It has Multi-language support so it can be easy for everyone to use. It supports 11 languages. You can also select various files to assign them together in batches. It can be then converted into your desire format all at once.
Compatibility And Usage
This software can be installed and used on both Mac and Windows PC without many specifications requirements. I used both the Trial and Registered version of the software and there is not much difference in its features except for two. The trial version will leave a watermark in the output videos and can only convert the first 5 minutes of any video or audio. You will be able to use the software easily as everything is placed in such an order that it won’t be hard to find.
The software worked as it should and converted all the files that I wanted. The speed for converting common or HD format videos is very impressive as it takes a maximum of 2 minutes for a 5 minutes video. But while converting to high-end 4K videos it takes more time as compared to other formats. In my opinion, the time taken for converting 4K video is fair as the file can be huge in size. I converted a video of 4 minutes into 4K and the size for its output file was 4.95GB and it took around 5 minutes for that.
Talking about video, the video editing tools are basic but it really helps in cutting the unwanted things. I used it for cutting the part in the songs where people talk or where there is no music. It’s good as it is done before converting and you will get only the song that you want to listen to.
Now you must be wondering can it convert any video into HD or 4K? See you cannot convert any video into 4K as it has different parameters, but this software will help you there. It changes the sharpness of the video which is not that good as it is hard to upgrade its format.
You can purchase the license for the software in case you want to convert video of more than 5 minutes. The plan for the license for 1 year is $29.95. You can also have a lifetime license for $39.95.
Pros And Cons
Now as we already have talked about the software and its feature, its time for some pros and cons.
- A large variety of input and output formats
- Video editing tools
- Converting time for videos and audios are really quick
- Convert Blue-ray videos from CD drive
- For using other tools from this software like video downloader you need to purchase it separately.

All the basic needs for converting a video can be fulfilled with this software.

One other thing that I liked is that you can customize any format according to your requirements and save it.
