Aimersoft Video Converter, our TopTenREVIEWS Bronze Award winner, is practically perfect video converter software. This field is so competitive that even a slight difference can make all the difference. This product was edged out because it is missing a couple of output formats we like to see, but overall, Aimersoft has a lot to offer and is one of the best.
Its interface looks very similar to Wondershare products, which is a good thing. We like this setup very much. Even a beginner can dive right into this product and start using it within minutes.
At the end of the day, great video converters can convert videos from almost any file type to any file type, but it is nice to add in a few editing tools, and Aimersoft does, including special effects, cropping and more. This video converter really is the total package, with a few minor misses.
Aimersoft Video Converter gives you the option to convert videos from more than enough input and output file formats. It works with a number of portable media devices, such as iPad, iPod, iPhone, PSP, Xbox 360, Motorola Droid/Cliq and Google Nexus One.
Some of the input file formats Aimersoft Video Converter can convert your videos from include AVI, MP4, FLV, WMV, MOD, MPEG, 3GP, MKV, MOV, VOB, RM, RMVB, TP, ASF, MP3, WAV, WMA, FLAC, MA, AAC and many more. This list is great because it has a good mix of common and uncommon video and audio file formats. The amount of file formats this program supports is impressive.
As far as output file formats go, Aimersoft Video Converter supports AVI, MP4, FLV, WMV, MPEG, MKV, 3GP, MOD, MOV, MPG, ASF, VOB, MP3, WAV, AU, FLAC and WMA. We would've liked to see more formats available here, including DivX and RM, but we can't be too picky. A larger list would help, but this is an excellent selection overall.
Aimersoft Video Converter has almost every feature we looked for, and most of these tools are easy to find. You will be able to batch convert, batch convert multiple file types, merge files, split output files, set video dimensions, set start and end times, control video codec, video bitrate, frame rate and more.
We are impressed with all of the ways you can control audio files. Many applications don't allow you to do much of anything with audio, but Aimersoft gives audio the respect it deserves. You can control audio codec, audio bitrate and sample rate, and extract audio and convert audio.
You can also control so many aspects of the appearance of your video output. Expect to have full control over things like brightness, contrast, saturation and more. You can even add watermarks and subtitles with ease. A dropdown menu makes it a cinch to make your movie look like old film or like a film negative. You can instantly make it look embossed too, or black and white. Not all of the visual effects are central to video conversion, but it makes so much sense to allow for that type of creative control within video converter software so you can do everything with one application.
The clean interface present in Aimersoft Video Converter is easy to use and makes using this software an enjoyable experience. We wouldn't change a thing about how the interface is laid out. Better help and support would make it even easier to use, however.
If you have any questions about Aimersoft Video Converter, you can consult the tutorials and FAQs section on the website, or contact customer support via email. It would be helpful if the company had more features in this area – especially more live help like telephone support and live chat. The company does offer chat for pre-sales questions, and that is helpful for some questions.
Aimersoft Video Converter is great video converter software that we recommend for a number of reasons. Its list of input and output file formats is a mile long. You can convert multiple videos in the same session. There are powerful clipping and editing features. You will always be pleased with the results. We'd add just a couple more output and customer service options, but otherwise, this product is ideal.
Aimersoft Video Converter is easy to learn and converts videos to and from almost any file type you can imagine.
Customer support could be stronger in some areas, and there are a few formats we looked for that we could not find.
The selection of editing tools, especially the audio tools, is truly impressive. This software has few weaknesses.
