Wondershare Video Converter Platinum is an application used for converting videos from one format to another. Formats supported include WMV, AVI, and MKV. The program can also be used to convert audio files into a number of different formats, including MP3 and WMA. As an added bonus, the program can extract the audio tracks from video files and convert these into MP3. Converting the video files into other formats makes these playable on applications and devices that support the format. For example, converting a video to an MP4 file makes it playable on devices like the iPhone. Converting files to MP3 makes the songs playable on popular media players.
To use the program, the user has to first load the file into the interface. This can be done through the file browser menu. Users can also simply drag the file from the folder into the interface. Once the video is already on the interface, properties of the said video can be viewed, such as the file name, resolution, and duration. These properties, along with the file's bit rate and encoding can be configured for the output video. Before the output video is actually converted, users have the chance to preview the output file through the built-in media player on the interface. Users can also specify the output folder for the converted video.
