iSkysoft Video Converter is one of the most widely used video-related tools of the iSkysoft range of products. Despite its name, this small yet powerful utility not only re-encodes your videos into any of the most popular codecs, but it also comes with some interesting editing and downloading capabilities that complete its already comprehensive functionality.

This converter offers a colorful, Windows 8-like, attractive user interface that makes the entire conversion process simple and gratifying. The program supports all the most widely used video codecs for the input, and nearly as many for the output, including both standard and High-Definition codecs. To make the selection process easier, iSkysoft Video Converter has organized all its output profiles by codec and device. Thus, you can either select a specific video format for the output or – if you are not too sure about the ones your devices prefer – pick one of the many smartphones, tablets, consoles, or e-readers available. You will find all the latest models from Apple, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, Sony, Motorola, or BlackBerry, to name but a few.

But, as said, this is not the average video conversion tool. This iSkysoft all-in-one solution is also a media player that you can use to view your videos and listen to your favorite music. This playback solution not only opens as many video file formats as you can think of, but also ISO and IFO files, DVDs, and DVD folders. It is also a video downloader, which supports URLs from all the most popular video sites, such as YouTube, Vimeo, Metacafe, BlipTV, VEVO, Facebook, or Google videos. Needless to say, the program can convert these files into the profile of your choice automatically after the downloading process has ended.

Among the editing features provided, I would highlight the interesting set of video effects that you can add to your videos before converting them into the desired format. Together with the limited yet interesting selection of video effects that the program provides, you can also crop, trim, cut, merge, add subtitles and watermarks, or simply retouch the brightness and contrast values of your videos using its built-in editor.

Regardless of the use you make of it, this simple conversion tool will surely surprise you. From quick-and-dirty conversions of downloaded YouTube videos to adding pro-looking subtitles and effects to your home videos, there is always a good reason to give this app a try.
