An Excellent Video Conversion Program
There are dozens of other video converters out there, so you definitely have a lot to choose from if you want to convert a video file from one format to another. But Video to Video Converter Portable truly stands out from the rest of the crowd, which explains why so many users love it and why it has received numerous awards over the years.
Most other video converters only support about a dozen different formats. But Video to Video Converter Portable can work with other 200 of them, including AVI, MPEG, MKV, WMV, 3GP and MP4. This means that it can handle almost every type of video file in existence today.
Simple to Use and Does the Job Well
Video to Video Converter Portable has functions that both novice and expert users will appreciate. It has pre-configured conversion settings that let you convert a video in a format commonly used on various media devices, such as Android smartphones, iPods, gaming consoles, etc. You can also edit settings such as bitrate, resolution and codec type manually if you prefer.
The interface is designed simply without any clutter. Right after you open the program, you'll see where all of its functions and controls are. If you need help or want to figure out what a certain function does, there's plenty of included tutorials and self-help resources included with the software.
Reliable Video Conversion
Video to Video Converter Portable is one of the most reliable converters, as there are few reports of users running into problems during the conversion process or when trying to watch the newly converted video later.
While it's almost perfect, it does suffer from a problem that is common among many other programs in its category. Video conversion is rather demanding on the CPU and uses a lot of RAM, as changing the format of a video file to another one requires your PC to perform a large amount of complex calculations. If your PC has less powerful hardware specifications, converting a large video such as a full-length HD movie can sometimes take up to an hour. You can improve the program's performance slightly by closing all other applications and not using your PC while the video conversion is in progress.
The Video to Video Converter is a program designed to translate media files from one format to another. The portable version of the application is a slightly condensed recompilation of the full program installation. The main difference is that the primary executable can be copied onto a thumb drive or other device so that it can be run independently without requiring a full installation. The portable version is functionally the same as the full version with the exception of VobSub Filter subtitles. The portable version does not include this functionality although it can be enabled through menus if the codec is on the target system. There is no wizard, and no installation is needed.
The main function of the program is to convert media files between formats. These could be video or audio files. The application goes beyond just drop down menus listing formats. It actually has a tabbed selection window that organizes the different conversion formats into categories. Users can choose basic formats like MP4 or proprietary formats for applications like the RealPlayer. The application can convert video into hundreds of formats for individual cell phones and mobile devices. It has formats for specific online video websites and high-definition playback on televisions. The program can handle over 200 input formats and over 700 output formats and presets.
The application also includes a number of other tools that make dealing with videos easier. Several of the tools allow users to split videos, combine videos or combine separate video and audio. Another tool will convert each frame of a video into a single image. The program includes a very basic burner that can create CDs and DVDs. The application even contains a special tool that gives users the ability to mark commercials from a television recording and then remove them with a single click. Other program functions include DVD ripping and video watermarking with custom images.
The Video to Video Converter portable version is installed with 13 different language packs. All of the interfaces within the program are simple to understand and use. Anyone who wants to convert a few files can do so quickly with just the buttons on the main display. The application also has the ability to load new skins. The skins change some of the visual aspects of the application so that it looks more attractive. There are several different skins available for download.
The portable version of the Video to Video Converter goes to great lengths to remain independent from the underlying system. The application does not install or change any codecs already on the computer. Everything is contained within the program. A disadvantage of this is that the converter is somewhat slow when processing longer movies and uses a large amount of resources. Another slightly inconvenient thing is that the application minimizes into the tray automatically when it loses focus. Aside from these two issues, the portable version of the Video to Video Converter is one of the best and most comprehensive free programs available today.
