Media Converter

I need to ask DD#1 what she thinks of this Digital Media Converter. She does all that sort of thing for me. I’ve learned how to handle still images just because I use them so much, and I have to be honest and say that all the fancy-schmancy stuff you now see me doing with my pictures is really done by the nifty photopress plugin, and not by any great leap in my photo techs-pertise.

The program allows you to convert your video and audio files from one format to another, and supports a gazillion formats. Here’s what you can do:

Convert between VCD, DVD, AVI (DivX, MS MPEG4, uncompressed), MPEG-1, MPEG-2 (PAL, NTSC), MP3, MOV, WMV, WMA, DVR-MS, and WAV.
Multi-select files and entire folders for conversion.
Extract soundtrack from movie files into MP3s.
Increase the volume of converted file up to 400% of the source file volume.
Reduce the file size of large videos.
Convert almost any format that can play on your PC.
Auto detect and fix many types of file format problems during conversion.
Split media files into smaller parts or auto split by size and time duration.
Change the audio or video properties independently.
Retain ID3 tags like author, title, artist, album etc. while encoding to Windows Media Format and MP3.
Convert DVR-MS files on your Media Center PCs.
Transfer media files to your Apple iPod or Sony PSP.
Convert VOB files on your DVD between PAL and NTSC standards.
Adjust video brightness and contrast.
Retain aspect ratio of video files even if you have changed dimensions during conversion
Search media files on your computer for conversion.

The price is 39.95, but a trial version is available. If you try it before I do, please let me know what you think.
