WinAVI All-in-one Video Converter can help you transfer media files from one format into another. Thus, it allows converting between video formats and extracting audio from video as well. As it is suggested by its name, this tool supports practically every audio and video format.
The program has an easy-to-use interface typical of those programs supporting batch conversions. Its layout is consistent with the usual workflow of selecting files to convert, picking an output format and starting the conversion. Differently from other applications of the same type, this one lets you add files in a wizard-like style. When you add the first element to the list, you will also be prompted to choose a target conversion profile. Unfortunately, the developers did not take advantage of this procedure, which would have easily allowed providing individual conversion parameters for each of the items. Instead, the entire list will be converted to the same output format. Another characteristic you might miss is the ability to preview the files. What is worse, this tool does not let you carry out any of the authoring actions that are also becoming frequent in similar software.
As the program supports a wide range of output formats, the developers have included multiple conversion presets. Furthermore, the presets have been classified attending to different criteria, so you will find profiles specifically set for DVD, game consoles, Apple devices and Mobile phones. This definitely helps choosing the parameters that are needed for successful playback on a given device. However, you are absolutely free to adjust the conversion parameters to meet your exact needs. Among these parameters, you may appreciate the option that allows you to embed subtitles, setting the font type, color and position.
In general, WinAVI All-in-one Video Converter allows converting accurately and fast thanks to its support of modern hardware. Although the array of supported formats is quite extensive, this application lacks some of the extras available from other software. Therefore, you might want to try other similar applications before finally deciding to buy one of them.
