While some programs used to play video are compatible with many formats, there are still different reasons why someone may want to convert videos from one format to another. For example, a favorite video may be able to play on your computer but not on another desired device, such as a large screen television or a smart phone. Personally, I also like converting video formats to reduce the amount of space taken without sacrificing quality. Video to video converter comes in handy in such situations.
This is a versatile free video converter that includes several other related functions. It supports more than 200 input formats, including WMV DVD, MPEG, MP4, AVI, MKV, 3GP, SWF, FLV and PSP. It can be used to convert both audio and video files to either XviD or DivX to make them compatible with plasma, LCD, and LED TVs. The converter can also make videos compatible with almost all types of portable devices, including iPods, iPads, iPhones and Android smart phones.
Video to video converter is also compatible with many audio formats, including MP3, MP2, AC3, AAC, M4A, 3GPP, WAV, MMF, AU, FLAC, IFF and Vorbis among others.
Video to video converter comes with integrated ffmepg libraries that are not installed on the operating system. It is also built on AVIsynth and DVDAuthor open source apps.

The embedded DVD ripper supports subtitles in foreign languages. Users can cut or join parts of videos they are interested in to come up with their own productions and even add watermarks to the converted files. The Live Preview function allows you to watch how your converted videos will appear. You may also take snapshots of desired sections.
How it Works
The simple user interface divides profiles into tabs that display various options that make it suitable for both inexperienced and experienced users. Those with little experience only need to select their desired format while experienced users can make several modifications on the output, including resolution, display size and frame rate. Video to Video Converter supports more than 700 output presets. The profiles are organized by device type, making it easy for inexperienced users to handle.
Once you have made the required selections, the program returns to the main window where you can click to start the conversion process. We have compared it with several other converters and find its conversion speed relatively faster and it performs all the functions we tested compared with three different video converters.
Although Video to Video Converter installs easily, it's also available as a portable application.
