I've done a lot of converting of media files recently. Whether its to get the "Receive the Power" song on my mobile phone or to convert MPG files to DVD I've just found it a requirement for most of my computing tasks in the past few weeks. And although ffmpeg is very useful on Linux, it really needs a GUI. Now I've found an AVI converter that can do the job for me - and has an immense range of options thrown in too.
Formats supported for audio conversion include CD, MP3, WAV, WMA, OGG, MPEG-4, AIFF, M4A, AAC, AC3, FLAC, and ALAC, and two-way conversions among MPEG-1, MPEG-2, AVI, WMV, ASF, Flash (SWF and FLV), iPod, PSP, 3GP, and MOV are available for video. MPEG options are available for VCD, SVCD, and DVD compliant output. DVD ripping, and audio compression functionality are also present. When converting from audio CD, track information can be dynamically downloaded from the CDDB and used to automatically name saved files.
Video editing is available for AVI (uncompressed and compressed using any available codec), MPEG-1, MPEG-2, WMV, and ASF. Comprehensive video editing operations are provided (delete frame, delete selection, crop, resize, rotate, mirror, flip, trim, text overlay, adjust audio volume, etc.). In addition, an extensive list of over 30 effects and color adjustment operations allow for powerful video enhancement and alternation. Audio files can be inserted into the video or extracted from the video; and image files can be inserted or extracted as well.
I really like the video editing features included here. They will be very useful for me to be able to use when Im creating videos or simply just cutting and pasting, to be able to rotate them especially. So you might like to check out Blaze Media Pro for your video conversion needs if you're looking round for an easy and flexible solution.
