Converting Movie Formats & Movie Format Conversions

By: Ted Peterson

There are often occasions when people around the world rent DVDs from a online or local store and then if they happens to like the movie, would either go for a DVD purchase or many of them would use a ripping or conversion software to convert the DVD into another supported format like for example a VCD format. Once the Video has been converted successfully, it can then be burned using different burning software on to a CD-ROM or 3 or 4 such movies can still be clubbed together into a 4 in 1 DVD.

WinMPG Video Convert is a good utility which can used for such a conversion and burning experience, as the software basically converts almost all commonly supported formats existing today!

With the range of video formats existing like AVI, MPEG1, MPEG2, VCD, DVD, SVCD, DivX, WMV, RMVB, 3GP, SWF, QuickTime etc., a user can pick and choose the kind of output format desired for the video storage.

The WinMPG Video Convert is very easy to install and takes almost 1 minute to get the application configured on your personal computer. Once the software has been installed it can be opened from a desktop application icon or from program menu options. Once the program is opened the user will be stunned with its application interface which unlike many others in the market has a very small and stylish appearance.

For those who are familiar with Windows Media player skins would find an absolutely similar experience with the difference in menu option only. Since there are only few conversion option available on the main application interface like All to VCD, All to DVD, All to MPG1, All to MPG2, All to AVI, All to RmvB etc., if the user desires to pick an option not available in the list, he/she can choose to select it from a drop down list button (with down arrow icon). You will find many more conversion option in the menu along with a capture option which allows the user to take snaps. Pick up the input file and the output file; now move along the picture until you reach the frame which you would like to capture. Move the mouse over to the Capture button and click once. Your picture is ready with fabulous quality.

Let's see how the conversion process takes place. Pick up the desired conversion option which would take you to another application interface where you will be required to select the input file which can be in any format existing today. Now select the output location on your computer and that's all. You don't have to mention the output file as it would be named automatically depending upon the format.

For example you have clicked on the option 'ALL to DVD', the next screen will be a preview window and a conversion input/output file details with an 'Advance' option which will let you know the duration it would take to finish the conversation. Also, there is an 'Information' icon which will display the files format details.

In our case, when the user clicks on the 'Convert' button he/she will be prompted to select the DVD Setting like the 'Format setting' to either PAL or NTSC and 'Video Size' etc. Preview is an option a user can choose to check on the conversion progress. Overall, it's a very nice piece of software which can be used effectively for video conversion and taking Snapshots.
