Media files come in various shapes, sizes and formats, most of them requiring conversion or to be transferred from a disk to another while keeping original quality. Amongst other applications that can be used, DVD to VCD SVCD MPEG AVI Converter is a program with a pretty self-explanatory title. It can encode DVD files to the SVCD, SVCD, MPEG or AVI format.
An easy selection of files that need processing
The user interface of the tool is standard. You can import a DVD from an external device or from the hard drive, by using the file browser (the "drag and drop" method and batch processing are not supported).
Adjust output video size and quality settings
Furthermore, you can configure video parameters when it comes to the segments, camera angle, output frame rate, as well as optionally enable DVD to VCD SVCD MPEG AVI Converter to force 24Hz.
Regarding the audio parameters, you can select the track language and volume, and optionally enable audio and video synchronization. Moreover, you can select a subtitle and deinterlace filter.
In the next steps, you can set the program to convert the entire DVD file or just a segment (according to time, frame or chapter), as well as configure VCD specific settings (audio and video bitrate, motion quality), export settings (resolution, zoom), volume options (e.g. limitations, customize size) and the output path.
Also, you can set DVD to VCD SVCD MPEG AVI Converter to turn off the computer once it has completed a task, as well as initiate the ripping process as soon as possible.
Doing its job well, but not as a pro
However, some errors occurred during our tests (failed to convert files due to unknown problems) and the shareware version has some severe limitations. Otherwise, we strongly recommend DVD to VCD SVCD MPEG AVI Converter to all users.
The program uses a moderate-to-high amount of system resources and includes a comprehensive help file with snapshots. It manages to quickly finish a task and to maintain a good image and sound quality.
To end with
All in all, DVD to VCD SVCD MPEG AVI Converter is indeed a handy tool you might want to keep around if your work or hobby implies handling video files and burning them on disks. Its interface lets you quickly accommodate, and even though it's not the best out there, the result is satisfactory.
