The increasing popularity of high definition video formats has led to a slew of HD-ready video devices which, in turn, demand the appropriate software to handle them.
With Xilisoft HD Video Converter you can convert video files between a wide array of formats, with special attention to HD videos, though also including other formats and platforms from the standard MPG, AVI or WMV to specific formats for iPod, iPhone, PSP, PS3 or Xbox.
All supported formats are presented to the user as profiles that you can choose easily from a drop-down list.
There's also the possibility to create your own format profiles by tweaking a few settings, such as video size, image quality and sound quality, among others.
Xilisoft HD Video Converter also features a built-in video player you can use to preview the video you're about to convert. Sadly, the program was a bit unstable and crashed every now and then during video conversion.
Though a bit unstable, Xilisoft HD Video Converter is one of the first video conversion tools that enables you to work with HD videos.
