This video splitter, merger, and format converter has an interface that looks like it hasn't aged since 1997. Fortunately, it's been laid out in a clean, legible manner, and that goes a long way toward usability.
WM Converter deftly handles conversion to WMV and QT formats from most of the major standards. These are preformatted for the Zune and the iPod, which means that the predefined bitrate will seems low for desktop use of the output files. Batch conversions are no problem for this Ugly Duckling of an app, and the merging tool was effective during our tests, as well. The program can also extract audio tracks from videos and record them as MP3s.
Although the interface is readable, a cleaner layout would be really helpful in identifying the various conversion buttons and other options. We would also like to see more customization choices in future editions.
