Magic Video Converter is a multi-format video conversion tool for Windows. The application is able to process all the popular video formats and has the ability to convert multiple media files simultaneously. It also allows you to split, crop, and merge videos, and includes a DVD burner. MVC presents a simple user interface that lets you process your media files without any difficulty.
First off, MVC supports all the known video formats, thus you will be able to convert from and to AVI, MPEG, MPEG 1, MPEG 2, MPEG 4, VCD, DVD, SVCD, RMVB, RM, WMV, MOV, DIVX, among others. The app puts at your disposal a wide list of profiles that suit different portable devices or mobile phones, like iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android, PSP, PS3, Sony WalkMan, among others, which simplifies the conversion process considerably. If you need to modify the settings for your video and adjust parameters like video bitrate, frame, aspect, etc., you can do it via the Edit Profile button. Besides, the new version includes the possibility to multiplex several videos/audios together into one file, and also offers support for more video and audio formats.
In short, although it looks a bit dated and lacks some of the extras other programs of the type offer (video editor, adding subtitles or watermarks, etc.), Magic Video Converter works really well and provides the basic features to make video conversion fast and free from complications. Note: the free 30-day trial version can convert only one video at a time and 5 minutes per video.
