This is a handy tool capable of converting your WMV videos into some other popular formats. It allows you to create a conversion list, as it supports video conversion in batches, and it gives you the possibility of clipping your source video files (to extract a portion of them) and of joining two or more source files into a larger one. It was designed to provide fast conversion speeds.
The program offers an intuitive, though rough, user interface which includes a panel for your source files list and a preview area, which consists of an embedded media player. This allows you to define the clipping start and end points of each source video file as you watch it, though you can also do the same operation on a separate window for more accurate results. In addition, you can change the default output folder to store your converted files.
Finally, there is an area where you can choose an output format and configure it. It has four tabs, one for each possible format - AVI, MP4, RMVB, and MPEG. The configuration options on each tab vary depending on the format. For example, you can set the video frame rate and size as well as the video and audio compressors of AVI files, and define the type and system (VCD, SVCD, DVD, PAL, NTSC, etc.), the audio bit and sample rates, and the number of channels of MPEG files.
Once the output configuration is ready, you can start the conversion process with a simple click. The program's user interface look and feel is - by default - a bit monotonous and not very attractive, but it includes a set of eleven skins that might help to make it look more pleasant. In general terms, this is a good choice for anyone needing to convert WMV files to any of the supported formats quickly and easily.
