Media Converter Final Thoughts
The Leawo Total Media Converter Ultimate is a useful product for someone who wants a single program to perform a wide variety of video ripping and transcoding. The user interface is friendly and intuitive, and allows someone to transcode video to the desired format with just a few clicks. This program would be a useful addition to anyone involved in content creation who needs to quickly create a large number of formats from one source.
This program really starts to shine when the other video processing options are explored. The inclusion of a mini-editing program with the capability to do simple image processing and watermarking is a valuable extra feature. While most people will find the 3D conversion utility nothing more than a gimmick, there are conceivably times when a home video enthusiast would want to quickly convert a video of the family to 3D for a novel effect.
Commercial DVDs and Blu-rays are constantly updating their encryption methods, and any program offering video ripping functionality needs to be updated regularly to work with these new formats .The Total Media Converter has a simple update feature, and the help menu is well organized to guide the user to the required information.
The Total Media Converter Ultimate is definitely a competitive software utility when compared with other purchased video ripping software.
Total Media Converter Conclusion
At the current price of $99.00 (from Leawo.com), the Total Media Converter Ultimate has significant competition from other purchased media converter packages, and quite a bit of its functionality can be obtained for free using programs like Handbrake. However, the Total Media Converter Ultimate stands above these other options in terms of the sheer number of conversion formats supported, as well as the number of options for adjusting video and audio parameters.
While the term "ultimate" might be a bit of a stretch for the features of this program, the Total Media Converter Ultimate package taken as a whole represents a very solid value video processing utility with an impressive number of formatting options.
