It used to be the case that there were a very large number of video formats to choose from, and it is fair to say that these numbers have done nothing but increase. There are now more mobile platforms and playback devices to consider than ever before, and when it comes to delivering video over the internet or to mobile device, there has to be a strong focus on file size as well as quality. If you want to ensure that a video is able to be viewed on a particular device, GOM Video Converter may be able to help.
Converting videos for viewing on different devices means that different codecs are used and videos are saved at different resolutions – there is little point in saving an HD quality version of a video that is going to be viewed on a small non-HD screen. If you do not already have the codec required for playing the most popular types of file, they can be automatically downloaded and installed for you, so there’s no need to worry about manual configuration.
There are a huge number of presets built into the program and support for an extensive range of video formats means that practically any file you can think of can be converted to a different format. When converting files you can opt to stick with one of the many presets, but these can also be completely customized as necessary. The ability to ad subtitles and overlays is a nice touch.
As an added bonus, the application can also be used to download streaming video.There’s no denying that GOM Video Converter does a good job, but then so do plenty of other applications that either cost much less or are even available free of charge. This does feel like a quality app and it yields some great results, but it is still difficult to justify the asking price.
Impressively easy to use and produces some great result, but the price is a little on the high side.
