AVS Video Converter goes beyond simple video transcoding to offer you a full-featured video editing, authoring, and conversion tool. The program combines an extensive set of supported formats with useful device-based profiles, video effects and filters, flexible split processes, and disc authoring features (complete with chapters and menus) to help you make the most of your video files.

You can load as many video files as required on the program’s conversion list and then proceed to select the required output format. You will find three tabs – one for a list of all the codecs supported, another one with a wide range of device-based profiles, and a third one for Web-optimized output formats. Video codecs and formats include AVI, MP4, MPEG, WMV, FLV, and WebM, and each of them comes with its own list of format-specific profiles. Device-based profiles include all Apple, Samsung, and Sony latest models, as well as specific lists for other Android devices, Consoles, Players, and Mobiles. Web profiles have been tailored to fit the requirements of the most common social networks and sites, such as YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Dailymotion, Flickr, or Dropbox. All of these output profiles are fully customizable though, allowing advanced users to make their own choices and to design their own profiles. To help you with this task, the program will show you a side-by-side view of both the input and the selected output parameters – a truly useful feature that you won’t see very often in this type of tools.

Files can be thoroughly edited before conversion, and you can even author your own DVD using any or all of the files on the list. The video editing tool includes a timeline, a precise video player, nearly 100 video and audio effects, and audio and image export capabilities, among other features. The video conversion process itself is fast and reliable – if only it would allow you to convert various files into different and multiple output profiles in one single operation, this program would be very close to perfection.

So, if you thought that AVS Video Converter would turn out to be yet another video transcoding tool, think again. This full-featured, flexible, and comprehensive utility is actually an all-in-one video converter, editor, and disc authoring tool.
