Versatility and flexibility are Xilisoft MP4 Converter’s main assets. Not only it can convert from and into the most popular video file formats, but it can also convert each item on the conversion list into as many video file types as required in one single operation. AVI, MPEG, FLV, MOV, 3GP, and MKV are but some of the formats supported, together with some well-known high-definition video codecs. The program is also capable of extracting the soundtrack of any of the selected video files and save it as an MP3, AAC, or W4A audio file.
Clearly designed to be used by all users, this conversion program comes in a clear and attractive interface that includes the conversion list, a quick view of the selected profile, a preview window, a CPU usage meter, and a collapsible Advance Profile Settings panel. Experienced users can use this extra panel to customize the selected output profile and even to create their own profiles. If you happen to find the tiny preview window provided far too small for your taste, you can always open a larger version of it in a new window – complete with support for full-screen mode – where you can enjoy your videos in their full glory.
Profiles are conveniently organized by the device and by the codec type. iPod, iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, PMP, and PlayStation are some of the devices listed here, together with two Android-related categories that cover some of the most popular mobile phones, tablets, and smart phones carrying this operating system (HTC, LG, Motorola, etc.). Any of these presets can be further customized easily with the advanced settings panel mentioned above.
By combining the program’s batch capabilities with the possibility of applying any number of output profiles to each item on the list, this video conversion utility is capable of performing all the conversion tasks you need in just one single operation. If only for this high level of flexibility, this is certainly a tool worth trying.
