ArcSoft MediaConverter is a software that can encode between various video formats, including AVI, ASF, 3GP, FLV and MKV.
The user interface of the program is attractive and intuitive. You can import videos from the hard drive by using the file browser (batch conversions are supported but the "drag and drop" method isn\'t)
Now you can select the output profile and destination, load a subtitle, configure settings (e.g. resampler, audio output format), as well as enable MediaConverter to play alarm music, hibernate or shut down the computer after conversion.
In addition, you can convert videos directly from a DVD or AVCHD, rip audio and open image files.
But you can also use a video editing tool to add effects (black and white, sepia, old movie, fish-eye, exposure, sketch, sharpen, negative, watercolor) and enhancements to your files, such as dynamic lighting, denoise, color adjustment (brightness, contrast, saturation), speed adjustment and the options to mute the file\'s audio track, as well as to split the file.
The program uses a moderate-to-high amount of system resources, contains a "how to" guide and manages to keep a very good image and sound quality in the output files.
We haven\'t encountered any kind of problems during our tests and ArcSoft MediaConverter is extremely easy to use, even by individuals with no kind of experience in this area. We strongly recommend it.
