Five Most Important Features of a Video Converter

By Kirk Artrip Subscribe to RSS | June 4th 2012 | Views:

If you convert and edit videos very often, and you finally decide to purchase one, you may don’t know how to choose a proper video converter because there are so many products available on the market. To help you choose a best video converter, we list five most important features that a good video converter should have when you shopping for it.

First, it should support multiple input and output video formats.

When you buy a video converter, you should confirm whether it supports the input formats that you want to convert from and the output formats that you are going to convert to. There are a variety of popular video formats, like 3GP, WMV, ASF, MOV, MP4, MPEG and MKV, etc. Make sure that the video converter you are going to buy has the ability to support these popular video types. Sometimes you may want to extract audios from videos or insert audios into videos as background music. If this is true for you, you should make your video converter supports popular audio formats as well, such as AC3, WMA, MP3, WAV and OGG, etc.

Secondly, it should allow users to preview videos before converting them.

From our experience, most video converters on the market give the users ability to preview videos before and during the conversion. This lets users to know what their outputs will be and can help users to edit them. Do not buy a video converter that lacks this important feature. Otherwise you may waste a lot of time to convert one video.

Thirdly, it should allow users to clip video segments.

This feature is essential if you want to clip certain segments of your videos and leave out segments that you do not need to convert. This feature also gives you the ability to clip your favourite segments and you just need to choose a starting time and ending time. Make sure that it supports to let you clip as many segments as like.

Fourthly, it should let users take still picture snapshot.

If you have the need for extracting pictures from videos often, make sure the video converter you want to buy has this feature to let you take snapshots. You can do this by simply grabbing the slider button on the small preview window and slide it to the part that you need to make a snapshot from. Once you get the image that you want to snapshot, you just need to click the “snapshot” button to finish it. What you need to do next is just make a name and choose a file folder to save it.

Last but not least, it should support batch conversion.

This is really helpful if you need to convert many videos. It can save you huge time and you don’t need to convert one by one. What you need to do is put all the videos that you want to convert into a file folder, and choose that folder to convert and then just relax to wait for the outputs.

There are also some other features you should confirm, such as the stability, the speed, the quality of outputs. When you want to buy a video converter, you should know your purpose and consider the tasks you have to convert.
