AVS Video Converter does not simply re-encode your video files into your favorite codec or into formats that your hand-held or mobile device can play back, it also offers your video editing capabilities together with full DVD authoring tools. It supports all well-known video file formats, whose output settings allow both basic and advanced customization.

The program’s interface is attractive and intuitive, and all its functions are neatly organized in a Windows-based tabbed ribbon. There you will find all the most widely used video file formats and the possibility of browsing all the other format supported in a simple and convenient way. If you happen not to be too familiar with video file formats, you can turn to the “devices” tab, where chances are that you will find your favorite gadget listed. Output settings have been grouped into useful and easy-to-use profiles, though you are always given the possibility of “designing” your own output profile.

Remember that this is not a simple video converter, but a tool that can turn your loose video files into fully-authored DVD discs. Thus, you will find a nice array of tools to edit your videos (cut, trim, add video and audio effects, transitions, etc.) and to add subtitles and new soundtracks to your DVDs. This comprehensive editing tool comes with a convenient timeline for you to add and arrange all your media files in a more intuitive way.

Thus, versatility is probably this program’s main asset – it can be used by both novices and experienced users, it can be employed to simply convert a video file or to extract its audio stream, or you can use it to create pro-looking movies in full-featured DVDs. Either way, AVS Video Converter is a tool worth trying.
