Designed mainly to allow you to convert video files between formats, Program4Pc Video Converter Pro is also an audio converter, an audio extractor, a video editor, a DVD ripper, and a slideshow creation tool. This high level of versatility is on par with the extensive list of media formats and codecs supported, as well as with its attractive and highly usable interface.
You can add to the conversion list any number of files in any of the media formats supported, regardless of the task you wish to apply to them. Thus, you can add video files for conversion and audio extraction purposes, audio files for audio transcoding tasks, or sets of images to produce photo slideshows. When it comes to video files, you can even use the app to download online videos from the most common social sites and even rip selected streams from your DVD collection. Each of the source files selected can be edited prior to launching the task assigned, offering different editing features for each of the media types supported.
As expected, the functionality of the video editing tool is clearly superior to the lame features provided by the audio editor (limited to trimming the selected audio track) and the slideshow creation tool. You can trim and crop your video files, rotate and flip them, change their aspect ratio, deinterlace them, add creative effects (sepia, black and white, etc.), add subtitles, improve their audio stream, etc. You can apply these edits either to the selected video file or to all the files on the list with just one click. When it comes to the slideshow editor, its features are limited to shuffling them, applying a nice background, changing the position and size of the images within the slides, add a soundtrack to the presentation, and defining the length of the interval. Regrettably, no transition effects have been added, so the resulting slideshows simply present one picture after the other at the interval selected.
Program4Pc Video Converter Pro doesn’t differ much in terms of usability from the way other popular video conversion tools work. It is the addition of DVD ripping, audio conversion, and slideshow creation capabilities that make it stand out from most of its competitors and turn it into a tool worth exploring.
