[citation][nom]touchdowntexas13[/nom]Is this a good video converter? I have been using handbrake for converting videos to an appropriate Ipod and Xbox format, and it seems to work well enough. But I am always looking for something better that is free[/citation]
Any Video Converter is VERY nice! It doesn't get along well with my Windows 7 x64, though. Back when I had 32 bit Vista, I used it very very often simply for ripping songs from youtube.
I have always had issues with the 'Any Video Converter' editions. From XP, Vista and now 7. This free version does not support AVI format either.
I currently use AVS Video Converter 6 and that does everything I want. You can set various formats, resolutions and set up files in 'Batch Mode' so you can set it going and have a whole TV series done overnight.
The websites boasts that it has over 65 million happy users. I doubt that. I wonder how many of those users have multiple computers or have reformatted and reinstalled their computers with this product. I also wonder how this compares to Real player, which I already use to download YouTube videos and convert them to MP3.
get ConvertXtoDVD from the torrents (oh.. i mean go buy it), it is by far the best converter i have used.
Drag and drop conversion @ it's best... it is idiot proof. I use it to convert any format to DVD format for those friends who dont have PC connected to TV or a USB drive on their dvd player or TV. Four movie AVI's on one DVD, sometimes five...
[citation][nom]Belardo[/nom]Quick tip when using AVC: Go into the Video (Tab) settings and MAX out the AUDIO/VIDEO Sync. Otherwise you audio will eventually become out of sync.[/citation]
Going to have to reinstall this program, and try this tip. Some of my conversions kept getting spit out with out of sync audio.... I eventually said heck with it and just resorted to other less legal means of getting my video's in the format I needed... lol If this works out then I will be all legal again er well mostly since I guess its not really legal to back up movies even for personal use anymore? (I can't keep track of the changes anymore...)
I use format factory it is just brilliant. It converts enything into anything (including divx xvid, h263 h264,3gp mp4 ..... also pictures) well manly everything and it also works on x64 win7 and it's free.
