Ease Of Use

Installation of this software is straight-forward– there are no hitches or giddy-ups to watch out for and it takes less than a minute. Speedy! And using the program is as easy as you would expect from a trusted publisher such as Ashampoo.

For the sake of simplicity I tried something straightforward— converting an MP4 file to AVI. Video Converter offers many formats to choose from:

Once you have chosen a file type, Video Converter will show you the expected file size before you actually begin the conversion process. There is also a Quality Slider available. By changing the Quality setting, you will see the expected file size change to reflect this setting. For this demonstration I left the Quality settings on the highest level.

Then I timed it. It took a couple of hours to complete, but you can abort the operation at any time. These are huge files, remember, so processing a 4GB file is going to take some time.

Note: Be certain you have your Temp folder on a drive large enough to handle the huge files involved.

Conclusions

The Ashampoo Video Converter is a breeze to use and affords conversion to more file types than I have ever heard of. I can confidently endorse yet another fine product from Ashampoo. Enter the contest below to get a chance of winning Video Converter.

    • Hi Dave,

      There is a link to the Video Converter page at Ashampoo in the above article. By going there, you will be able to see all its features.

      It went beyond the scope of this article to discuss its many conversion options,

      • Hi Richard,

        I went to the site and eventually sent a contact request to the company as I couldn’t find any HVEC references on the product page. If, or when, they respond I will update this post with the added information I get from them.

      • Hi Richard,

        I got an answer from Ashampoo today and the video converter does NOT convert to HVEC format, which is unfortunate since the smaller size of the finished product is so much more convenient for storage purposes when you can take an 8 gig film and compress it to 3 gigs without loss of quality. So far, even though it takes several hours(depending on original size, the HD Video Converter Factory Pro from Wonderfox has been the best. Something faster with similar quality would be better!

        • To speed up the processing time you require a faster processor with ample cores, and do not use the computer for other tasks while doing the conversion, Mindblower!
