Bigasoft RealPlayer Converter specializes in re-encoding video to RealMedia formats. However, it actually supports a much wider range of output formats that allow you to use it as a general-purpose video and audio converter. It has an intuitive interface, in which all the options are easily found. Unfortunately, the default color combination is not very attractive and there are no other skins available.
The application supports batch processing, and in keeping with this feature, it also allows importing complete folders to the conversion list. An impressive array of input formats is allowed, comprising both audio and video formats. In addition, it also supports downloading Internet video. For this purpose, you only need to provide the page URL and the program will automatically take care of ripping the actual video URL. The imported clips can be previewed (even in full-screen mode) and snapshots can be taken of selected scenes.
Multiple editing features allow you to use this converter as a basic editor. The available functions include cropping the frame and tweaking picture parameters. Likewise, you can also apply effects and add watermarks. Although you can also trim the movie’s length, this feature does not allow you to extract more than a segment from the same source file. If the multiple subtitle and audio streams are integrated in the original file, you can select one of them. Moreover, you can also embed subtitles from external files.
As stated above, the tool supports multiple target formats, including such video formats as ASF, AVI, MP4, MPG, AMV and MKV and audio formats like AC3, AIFF, ALAC, WAV, MP3 and MP2. You need not worry if you usually have trouble finding the correct conversion profile for your mobile device because most of the presets are classed according to their supporting devices. Still, if no built-in profile meets your exact needs, you can also create new profiles.
In general, Bigasoft RealPlayer Converter is an excellent application. Fortunately, it is not actually restricted to converting RealMedia formats.
