We have up to 28 different formats to which we can convert our video and within each format, we have 7 different options with qualities ranging from SD to 4K quality. But the first thing is to download the program on our computer.

As we see in the upper part we have 5 icons, the first four are destined to convert videos to different formats. On the left side, an icon appears to import the video file that we want to convert and on the right, we will see a drop down with the conversion options.

As we said before there are many formats available among which are MP4, MOV, MKV, AVI, WMV, HEVC, DIVX, MPEG or FLV. In this dropdown choose the format and quality, if for example is a video that we will see on the iPhone, with the quality of 1080p probably have plenty. If it is to see it on television, we can choose 4K for higher quality.

In the lower part, we have some very interesting options. The best of these is the high-speed conversion that is activated by pressing a lightning bolt down on the left. If we activate it, our videos will become much faster. We also have a drop-down to choose the destination folder and an option that will allow us to join all the videos one after the other.
