Much more than just a plain video transcoding tool, Video Converter Studio offers you an attractive and efficient set of features that add to its video conversion capabilities the possibility of editing and enhancing the source files, playing them back in its high-quality video player, downloading online videos from the most popular sites, and recording your desktop activity or any streaming video that the program can’t download.
This all-in-one tool supports all the most widely used media file formats, both for the input and the output. The program offers you a neat set of profiles organized by device, video codecs, and audio codecs. Audio-based profiles will allow you both to convert audio files between formats and to extract the audio stream of your favorite videos. All profiles allow for further customization so that the resulting file meets all your device’s requirements and your personal preferences. HD videos, in their many variants and formats, are also well supported.
The program’s editing features, without being exhaustive, will let you trim and crop your video files, make corrections to the most common exposure mistakes, add watermarks and subtitles to your videos, and apply some interesting and creative video effects to the final results.
Together with all these functions – many of which you will find in many other similar tools – Video Converter Studio comes with other features that very few other video converters can boast about. The program’s video player is one of them. Many other similar tools come with a video player, but not many can play back videos in high definition and in full-screen mode without destroying the experience. Alongside with its video player, the program comes with a neat video downloader, which will let you grab online videos from all the most popular video sites and in the quality of your choice. It supports batch downloading, and will also convert any downloaded video to your favorite format on the fly. The video recorder can not only capture any activity taking place on your desktop or on a specific area of it, but also record those online videos that resist downloading or any images coming in through your webcam. Alternatively, you can use this utility to record only the audio of a playing video or any other audio coming in via your system’s sound card. Last but not least, Make MV will let you create high-quality videos out of your photo collection or any set of images. It will help you produce beautiful and creative presentations of your best pictures that you can then convert to your preferred format and share easily in a compact file.
Video Converter Studio offers much more functionality than meets the eye. Its conversion capabilities, excellent as they are, do not even cover half the functions this program can perform. If only for its versatility, this is a tool worth checking.
