Aimersoft Video Converter Ultimate combines video conversion with video file editing, video downloading, and DVD authoring. It converts DVD movies into any of the most popular video file formats, and vice versa. It comes in a nice-to-look-at interface complete with video playback capabilities and a wide array of device- and format-based output profiles.

Suitable for all types of users, it allows you to batch-convert any number of files into the video codec of your choice, even when they have been protected with a DRM solution. If you happen to be not too familiar with codecs and formats, you can always select one of the many device-based preset profiles for the output. Nearly all Apple, Samsung, BlackBerry, LG, Nokia, and HTC mobile devices are present on the list (among other brands), together with all the most widely used game consoles and media players. Output formats include also all the most popular audio codecs, such as MP3, M4A, AC3, Ogg, APE, FLAC, or WAV, allowing you to extract any of the audio streams that may be present in your videos.

One of the beauties of this tool is the possibility of downloading and converting on the fly nearly any video on the Web. It offers you two different solutions – you can either copy and paste the URL of the video file into the program’s interface, or use the “Download” button that will appear on the corresponding Internet browser. YouTube, Google Videos, Metacafe, Vimeo, FunnyOrDie, and BlipTV are only some of the many video portals supported.

You can transfer all these video files into a DVD disc in just a few steps. The program offers you a nice selection of menu templates to make your DVDs look more “professional”, and it also gives you the opportunity of merging all those files into a single video stream if required.

Finally, it is important to note that this conversion utility pays special attention to quality – thus, whenever possible, the program will avoid re-encoding your input video files in order to preserve their original quality by simply moving the video content into the selected new container without further processing.
