|Friday, 30 September 2011 12:00|
You do not need to be an expert to use VidConvert. Simply add a file, select a format and a quality, and click convert. Optionally you can change your save folder from the main window. For advanced users you can select the Advanced panel if you choose to allow such options as custom Frame Rate, Bit Rate, etc. But for most users simply choosing Normal or High quality should be sufficient. After your conversion is finished simply add more files or quit VidConvert and the job is done.
Supported formats include iPhone, iPod, iPad, QuickTime, .mp4, MPEG-1 and 2, DivX, Xvid, and audio only formats such as .mp3 and .m4a. VidConvert can add iTunes compatible videos directly to your iTunes library for convenience and for syncing with your iPhone, iPod, or other iDevice. It's also possible to turn your favorite videos into audio only tracks for playback in your favorite audio device. And VidConvert is not limited to creating videos just for Apple devices, in fact any device that can play one of the supported formats can play a video converted by VidConvert. With VidConvert converting your videos couldn't be easier.
Version 1.1 was a major update with Lion optimization while still maintaining backwards compatibility with Snow Leopard/Leopard, and introduced such features as File Preview, Joining or "stitching" videos together, and conversion from audio files. Version 1.1.2 fixes a bug that could cause VidConvert to use a wrong bitrate, fixes a bug that could cause encoding with H.264 to use the wrong settings, and fixes a bug when using Same Folder as Source during Preview or Join Files. It also significantly reduces file size when joining files, improves speed when joining files, along with other fixes and improvements.
