Oposoft YouTube to MP4 Converter can let you play video files downloaded from YouTube in various portable devices by converting them to supported formats.
The software has an attractive interface and its layout is perfectly consistent with the workflow. Therefore, you will not have any difficulty in using it, even if it is your first time. This converter can process various files in a single work session and it supports importing them either individually or as complete folders. Sadly, it does not support other sources like DVD discs and DVD folders and it does not download video either. The input formats it supports are those which are readily downloadable from YouTube, namely, FLV, SWF and MP4. In case the added files have multiple audio tracks and subtitles, you can choose one of them. However, adding subtitles from external files is not supported.
This tool can be used as a simple video editor, because it allows some basic authoring functions, like trimming, cropping, adjusting picture parameters, rotating the image and combining various files. Similarly, it supports previewing the files’ contents and taking snapshots of your favorite scenes.
The range of output formats is rather limited as it only comprises MP4, Flash (FLV and SWF) and a few audio formats. However, there is an extensive array of conversion profiles to choose from. They have been organized according to the supporting devices to make its selection easier. These profiles can be easily customized, but you cannot create new ones for later use. Unfortunately, when you pick a profile, it will be applied to all the imported files, because the program does not support using individual conversion parameters.
In brief, Oposoft YouTube to MP4 Converter works exactly as described by its developers, as it can convert video fast and accurately. Its main limitation is due to the limited range of input and output formats supported. Therefore, if you need a general-purpose converter, perhaps you will be interested in other similar software by the same developer.
