Editors' Review

Sothink Video Converter Pro offers a comprehensive range of format and resolution options through an accessible interface. The encoding profiles are categorized to serve the needs of computers, streaming applications, smartphones, tablets, and game consoles, proving to be easy to use.

Pros

Very intuitive: We liked the Sothink Video Converter Pro interface because it's clean, ergonomic, and straightforward for novices. Everything is easily attainable: actions at the top, conversion options concentrated in five drop-down menus at the left, and file management in the main pane.

Batch processing: This is a lifesaver that boosts productivity, but we would like to be able to choose different options for each clip in the batch.

Photo extraction from video: We automatically extracted images at a rate of one capture per second of running video, in native or higher/lower resolution. It's very practical for taking sample images or putting backgrounds in video titles.

Cons

Average conversion rates: Our tests on a dual core laptop started from a 1080p 111MB MP4 file and took 3:48 to convert to a standard quality 480p FLV file, 4:57 for a standard quality 480x320 Android MP4 file, and 11:00 for a high-quality 720p iPhone MP4 file. Conversion times are comparable to freeware apps.

Unlocking options: Most encoding options are reserved for the full version that costs $24.95. At least SourceTec clearly marks which option is available or locked without tiresome pop-up messages or diversions to unnecessary links.

Subtitles and video trimming: We have not located the subtitle loading feature. Video trimming is definitely out of place here.

Bottom Line

A very intuitive application, Video Converter Pro targets those who want conversions for specific devices. You will like the interface and the batch processing feature, as well as the overall accessibility of the app. However, if you are an advanced videographer looking for more flexible editing features and more conversion options, you can turn your attention to NLE software.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Sothink Video Converter Pro 3.6 build 27120.
