To the video conversion, downloading, and recording capabilities already present in its Video Converter, Aimersoft Video Converter Ultimate adds the possibility to rip and burn DVDs regardless of whatever DRM protection system they may have been protected with. Its attractive interface includes an excellent media player, a video preview window, a video editor, and a comprehensive metadata manager.

This enhanced video conversion tool supports all the most common video and audio codecs, thus allowing you to convert nearly any video file and to extract its audio stream in the format of your choice. Its batch conversion capabilities will let you edit and convert any number of files in one single operation, though the option to convert each file on the list to a different output format hasn’t been yet implemented.

On the input side, you can load any existing video files, download them from the Web via the built-in YouTube downloader, record any streaming video playing on your computer, or rip any video stream stored on a recordable or commercial DVD. As for the output, the program comes with a nice set of profiles organized by media type (video, audio, HD, Web, and 3D) and device, including all the newest and more widely used portable players, smart phones, etc.

You can check your input files without leaving the conversion list by playing them back on the program’s video preview window, which you can also use to take snapshots of your favorite frames. The media player included offers a better quality and some extra functionality, and can be used to play both entire DVDs and individual audio and video files that are not necessarily part of the conversion process.

The program’s editing capabilities include trimming and cropping functions, the option to adjust the most common color settings, add creative monochrome and full-color effects to your videos, watermarking, and the possibility to add to them subtitles stored in external files. You can also edit the metadata of any video file and add new useful information, such as the episode name, the tagline, the genre, the video definition, a description, the actors and directors, and even the name of the screenwriter.

Aimersoft Video Converter Ultimate may well become the only tool you’ll ever need to rip your DVDs (protected or not), to convert your favorite videos into more portable formats, burn your own DVDs with your favorite home movies and videos, or download the latest YouTube videos to watch them offline. Its easy-to-use interface and its intuitive functionality make it suitable for all types of users.
