Key Functions

The DVD to iPod Converter has a supremely easy to use and intuitive user interface that gets you going in no time at all. Only a few mouse clicks and minutes are required to install the software and kick off the transcoding process. The transcoding abilities are also extended to independent audio files and video based audio tracks. It makes sense because the iPod is primarily an audio experience. The software can handle the following audio formats: AAC, WMA, AC3, WAV, AIFF, OGG, AMR, FLAC, AU, M4A, MP3 and MP2.

The video support and editing functionalities highly feature the De-interlacing support, whereby any video can be processed to remove the hard and sharp image edges to make the viewing comfortable and smooth. Other editor functionalities provide the ability to edit videos and video clips, slice and join clips from one or more source, merge and combine files from multiple sources, add watermarks (text and image based), crop, trim and capture picture snaps of your video or video clips.

You can also opt to customize the specific parameters and transcoding options to make the videos suit your tastes and preferences. These preferred combinations can then be saved along with your user profile for further or later use, as presets. The parameters that can be modified are audio bitrates, audio sampling rates and audio channels, video frame rates, video bit rates, resolutions and the encoder types.

Other Features

Other noteworthy features include a very advanced computing algorithm that allows faster conversions and the options to selectively choose subtitles and audio tracks from video files when you need them.
