This time I have reviewed a software, A pretty useful one. A Video Converter named Movavi Video Converter. The post will discuss my observations on the functions of the software and the also the features that the handy app possess.
Installation of Movavi Video Converter
The installation of Movavi is just 6 Clicks Process, Just select the Language and proceed by clicking Next. You will get an option to Unselect the Toolbar for browser. Thats your personal choice but I dont recommend installing unnecessary toolbar to add to weight of your already heavy browser.
Note: If you are using some firewall like ZoneAlarm, You will be prompted for Internet Access for the software. You can safely accept the request. But even if you dont allow the access the software will function good.
First Time Use
Opening the software for the first time will allow you to subscribe for their newletter and receive cool discounts and other offers on your Email. Its Highly Optional and they give you a ‘No Thank You’ option, So choose one..
“A Great (Superb) Feature”
My laptop’s GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) has a technology known as CUDA by Nvidia. This gives applications the power to utilize GPU memory for its processing. This inturn affects the performance and speed of applications by a great leap!
The mind blowing feature of Movavi Video Converter is that it allows CUDA Technology to increase Speed and Performance of conversion!
After using CUDA my conversions were increased a lot in terms of speed. The 200+MB files for eg got converted to other formats like .MKV in matter of seconds. Which can mean the increase in Conversion Speed is 8x Faster.
Conversions and Output Formats
After adding a file for conversion, I searched the list of output formats. The point to be noted here is that the Conversions which support GPU Acceleration are marked out with an Nvidia sign (Might vary depending on your GPU) .
Here is a screenshot of the Preset Output Formats.
The preset list includes the following formats –
- .mp3 [with different quality modes]
- .mpg [with different quality modes]
- .mp4 [with different quality modes]
- .avi [with different quality modes]
One more interesting feature of Movavi Video Converter is the ‘Extra Actions Panel‘ which includes the following features –
- Join/Split files.
- Upload to iTunes,PSP,Youtube,Facebook directly.
- Create Flash Player.
The Software also allows conversion output formats for device specific conversions and includes a large variety of Devices pre-configured. Just select your device from the list and Select file and start the conversion you will get the file ready for your device to play it smoothly.
The following is a sample screenshot of the Preset Devices List.
- Android Phones
- Amazon Kindle
- Creative Zen
- Microsoft Zune
- Mobile Phone [Custom Selection]
Apart from the preset formats that are there in the converter, Advanced users can access a huge list of settings that can be used to tweak the Audio/Video output quality or other personal preferences.
Video Edit Options of the Converter
The converter is rich with essential video edit options that are necessary for basic video editing and other actions. The edit options given by the converter are as follows.
One such interesting feature I found was the Watermark Video Option which lets you watermark or brand the videos to prevent others from copying or stealing the video because there is no easy way to remove watermark other than to crop the watermarked area or cover the area with a Blur. (both of which reduce the video quality)
The watermark feature allows you to add a text which can be put anywhere on the video with customizations like Font/Transparency available at a cursor tip.
So go out and try the various settings like Crop,watermark and enrich your video conversion experience with this video converter.
Inshort Movavi Video Converter is a perfect tool for video conversion that can be handled by both Basic and Advanced users.
