There are many reasons why you would want to use a video conversion software – perhaps because a video won’t play in the existing format and has to be converted into a much more common format or because it is taking too much time to upload your latest video on Youtube or Facebook because it is too large in size and you have to reduce the file size through video compression. No matter what the reason is, Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate can do it for you. It is a powerful, feature loaded and easy to use video conversion software that does more than just plain video conversion. It can also be used to burn the video DVDs, download videos, and stream your videos over the devices supporting DLNA/UPnP.
Convert and edit your videos
As any fifth grader can guess, the main function of the Wondershare Video Converter software is to perform the video conversion. It has support for a large number of video/audio formats including some of the very unusual and rarely used formats. At present it can handle more than 150 different formats and promises to support the new media formats in the future. It can handle 4K, 2K, 3D, VR and 360 degree videos very easily.
In order to use the conversion feature, you have to select the Convert tab, add all the video files that you want to convert, choose an output media format type from the right and click on the Convert button. You can drag-n-drop the video files or load them directly from a DVD. And if you want, you can edit the files before the conversion.
For editing the video files, you can click on the Edit icon next to a video file in the list. This will open a basic video editing window from where you can perform various actions like trim, crop, merge, rotate, watermark, subtitle, add special effects, modify metadata, change brightness/contrast/saturation and more.
Burn videos to DVD
After editing or converting the videos to a desired format, you may want to burn them to a DVD. In that case, you can use the Burn tab in the Wondershare Video Converter. Using this feature, you can create, design and burn the videos to a blank DVD. The software supports both the single-layer and the dual-layer DVDs, but you will have to check whether your DVD writer supports writing to dual-layer disks.
It allows you to design the menu for the DVDs. You can click on the Change template on the right side and choose the background image, DVD title, and the background music for the DVD menu. There are some ready made templates, but you can customize them if you want.
Other things that you can customize are the aspect ratio of the DVD as well as the definition quality for the videos (standard definition, high definition etc). If you do not want to burn the DVD using an actual DVD writer, then it can also save the DVD files to a folder on your hard disk.
Wondershare Video Converter can directly download videos from the internet before converting them. This can save you some time because sometimes you yourself manually download the videos and then convert them. This feature can some of your time in these situations. You can also record your desktop screen or some other activity on your screen using the Record Video feature. For recording the video it installs a virtual sound card so that all the sounds being played on your computer are recorded properly.
But before you start recording the videos, you should note that this needs a PC with moderate specifications. An older or slower PC, would not be able to record the high quality videos or capture all the frames.
Stream media to TV
Wondershare Video Converter comes packed with a media server of its own. You can find this feature from under the Media tab. Using this media server, you can stream your videos over the wireless network and watch them on your TV.
It can either scan your computer for all the available videos, or you can manually add videos to the various categories like the movies, TV shows, home videos, music videos and so on. It can stream the media to all the devices that support DLNA/UPnP protocols. You can also stream the media devices including Chromecast, Xbox 360, Apple TV, PS3, Roku etc. You can access the media files being streamed, using an app that supports DLNA/UPnP in your Android smartphone connected to the same wireless network.
Wondershare Video Converter packs so many features and presents a very easy-to-use interface for all your video conversion needs. The video conversion is very fast and the support for 150+ different media formats is simply astonishing. Moreover, it comes with tools to download videos, record videos, stream media and burn them on the DVDs.
