XMedia Recode Portable
Batch convert almost any audio or video file

XMedia Recode is an audio and video conversion tool that supports just about every format around: 3GP, 3G2, AAC, AC3, AIFF, AMR, APE, ASF, AVI, AVISynth, AU, DVD (unprotected), DIVX, DTS, E-AC3, FLAC, FLV, H261, H263, H264, M2TS, M1V, M2V, M3U, M3U8, M4A, M4P, M4V, MKA, MKV, MMF, MP2, MP3, MP4, MP4V, MPE, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MOV, QT, OGG, OGM, OGV, PVA, REC, RM, RMVB, SVCD, SWF, THP, TS, TRP, TP0, VCD, VOB, WebM, WMA, WMV, WML and WPL.

Compatibility is great, then, and multimedia geeks will also appreciate the fine control they get over the conversion process. You're able to choose the video codec, frame rate, bit rate, GOP length, resolution, aspect ratio and a host of other advanced options. And that's just the start. If you're reducing the size of a video, for instance, XMedia Recode doesn't just apply some random scaling algorithm: you get to decide exactly how it's done, and there are nine options available.

If that all sounds too complicated then there is a simpler approach on offer, fortunately. The program comes with wide selection of profiles that define the best way of carrying out conversions for a particular device or task, and if you choose one of these then every other setting is selected automatically. So if you want to convert a video to play on some Apple device, for instance, you'd choose the Apple profile, then your particular hardware (the iPad is supported), click Add Job > Encode and then watch as your file is created.

XMedia Recode is an incredibly powerful program, then, but it does have one small problem. While the author claims support for five different languages, it's only partly translated from the original German, and the Help appears to be only available in German. This shouldn't be a major issue as it's generally obvious how everything will work, but if you have problems and don't speak the language then it may take some trial and error to figure out any solution.

Version 3.2.0.2 changes:
    •Update of ffmpeg
    •Update of x264 (2491) Codec
    •New profiles (Huawei, Samsung)
    •Updated Italian language file
    •Updated French language file
    •Fixed minor bugs

Verdict:

XMedia Recode is a powerful, effective and highly configurable file conversion tool. The lack of help in anything other than German could be an occasional problem, though

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
