Miro Video Converter 3.0
Quickly convert videos into iPod and Android-friendly formats

It's a fundamental law of video files that they're never in quite the format you need, especially for playback on mobile devices. Install Miro Video Converter and that needn't be a problem, though - the program provides the easiest possible way to transcode just about any video format to the Theora format, or files suitable to a range of mobile hardware: Android products (Behold II, Cliq/ DEXT, Droid, Eris/ Desire, G1, Hero, Magic/ myTouch, Nexus One), various Apple devices (iPhone, the iPod Classic, Nano and Touch), and the PSP.

To make this happen, all you need do is drag and drop a file onto Video Converter, choose your output format, and click Convert. It's as easy as that.

While simplicity is generally a good thing, Miro Video Converter does take it perhaps a little too far. There are no advanced tweaks here whatsoever, no options to customise bitrate, resolution, audio formats or anything else, so you can't, say, reduce the size of a particular group of videos to guarantee that they'll fit on a nearly full device. You can't even drag multiple videos onto the program in a single operation - it's strictly one at a time.

Miro Video Converter 3.0 is a major upgrade. New features/changes include:

- Batch Processing
- More devices and output formats
- Better control for output size and aspect ratio
- Output of progressive MP4 files for web playback
- Improved WebM output quality with SD and HD options
- Thumbnail generation
- Some additional output options for video developers
- And it’s all wrapped up in an incredible new UI!

Verdict:

While Miro Video Converter is short on features, it's also exceptionally easy to use. And behind the scenes quality libraries like FFmpeg carry out the conversions, so you can sure of good results

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.
