Xilisoft XviD Converter

Xilisoft XviD Converter 7.8

It can convert videos of various formats to XviD video files
 
7.8.19 (See all)

XviD is one of the most successful video codecs. Thanks to its incredible compression technology, it manages to significantly reduce the size of resulting files without affecting their quality. However, it is just one codec among many others; and that is why you may occasionally need to convert to or from XviD.

Xilisoft XviD Converter offers to convert XviD videos into a wide range of formats. However, its name is quite misleading because it can also convert from other formats as well. Its interface is exactly the same as that of other converters, and, what is worse, it does the same thing. This leads me to think it is exactly the same product sold under different names; perhaps aimed at different sections of the world market or simply intended to make users pay several times the price for the same software.

Having alerted you about this possible marketing trick, let us leave this issue behind and focus on the real capabilities of this software. The interface is very easy to use, even more so if you are already familiar with this type of application. A series of basic steps will lead you to a successful video conversion: select the source files, choose the output format and location, and start converting. As choosing the target format may certainly be the most difficult step, instead of using rather incomprehensible names, the conversion profiles are identified with the names of supported devices. However, if you are an advanced user, you can also decide to customize the output by setting additional parameters.

Xilisoft XviD Converter is capable of batch conversion; and it can convert the same source file into different formats in a single conversion session. Moreover, it uses the capabilities of modern hardware to accelerate the conversion process. All this makes it a useful video converter. Just remember this: do not embark yourself on purchasing this application before checking if it is what you really need.
