    "Good program, should be rated higher"

    September 7, 2010  |   By KimJungSkill

    Pros

    The context menus lets you pick what file you want to convert on the fly! I found myself using this feature a ton. It features a good variety of conversion formats and is relatively straightforward/easy to use.

    Cons

    After converting a file it automatically pops up the Oxelon website (can easily be turned off in the settings menu). Conversion process takes 100% cpu while converting, but the conversion is fast (120mb video file in just a few seconds).

    Summary

    This program is great when used with Orbit downloader (also found on download.cnet.com).

    A tip when converting files: If you are converting videos to mp4 format for your ipod, you may want to right-click the original file (the one you want to convert) go to properties > then go to the details tab. If you match the data rate of the original file to the "Bitrate (kbits/sec)" section of the video section, and do the same with the audio bitrate section, your converted file should be roughly the same size as the original. If you try to make a 192kbps audio file into a 320kbps audio file, you will get a bigger file, but the audio quality won't increase (aka waste of space).

    Hopefully in the future the developers will have a feature that automatically detects the bitrates of the file, so user's don't accidentally over-convert a file, resulting in unnecessary big files.
