Oposoft YouTube Converter is aimed to re-encode downloaded video files to other formats, so that they can be played in a much wider range of devices and players.
The application has an intuitive interface that will leave no room for doubts, even if it is the first time you use the tool. It allows you to create a list of files to convert. Unluckily, it only supports SWF, FLV and MP4, which are the formats commonly used to contain Internet video. It does not allow downloading video, a feature that is usually available in similar software.
Besides converting, this tool also allows you to carry out simple editing actions. For instance, you can use it to trim video length and crop the frame. Similarly, it lets you merge various clips. Picture parameters can be adjusted as well. Moreover, the files to convert can be previewed and while you do that, you can take snapshots of selected frames.
The range of output formats is quite extensive, as it comprises practically every existing video format and some audio formats as well. The selection of a target profile is eased by allowing you to use filters according to the intended device. This guarantees that you do not have to face compatibility issues when trying to play the resulting files. It is too bad that the program does not allow setting individual conversion parameters; therefore, all the files in a conversion session will be converted to the same format instead.
In general, Oposoft YouTube Converter can do its job accurately and fast. However, as it is aimed to convert Internet video, it should allow downloading video, which it does not. In addition, you may find that the range of supported input formats is too limited.
