Editors' Review

Xilisoft's Video Converter Ultimate is on the pricey side of premium video converters for home use, but you get automatic profiles enhanced for just about any device or format, automatic graphics card detection and acceleration, video editing, and more. If you watch a lot of video on your computer, a decent video converter is an absolute necessity. But if you also watch a lot of video on your smartphone or tablet, or like to make DVDs, or find yourself constantly saving bits of video for later, a decent video converter isn't good enough. You need a good one. The full-featured Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate is free to try, but conversions are limited to three minutes, which is plenty of time to see how the software works.

Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate opened with a message identifying our AMD graphics card and automatically enabling compatible graphics acceleration - a good start, by any measure. We could easily disable the acceleration with a click or two, of course, but we recommend owners of AMD/ATI or Nvidia CUDA graphics cards let the converter's built-in GPU detection take advantage of all available processing power, since it can improve video quality. Xilisoft's user interface bears a family resemblance to other video converters, but it's much better designed and rendered, with crisp, attractive icons and excellent functionality. The program opened with a Getting Started Guide: Step 1, choose a profile from a drop-down list with just about every option you could ask for, starting with the default choice, iPod. Many of the formats showed the AMD APP logo, signifying compatibility with enhanced graphics. Needless to say, we started with some of those. We keep a folder of sample videos for converting, which lets us compare both conversion time and quality. Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate's trial limitation kept us from judging its conversion speed - let's just call it "fast." Our converted videos played normally and with excellent quality.

Xilisoft is probably justified in calling its video converter the Ultimate. It's as least as good as the others we've tried, and better than most.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate 7.7.0.20130109.

Pros

Supports many formats.
Converting speed is ok.
Nice interface.

Cons

Can't download video from YouTube.
Not free.
So I got myself another video converter that's able to them both - All2MP4
Free download and Free Use: http://tresrrr.com/all2mp4forwindows.html

Summary

All2MP4 can do all the things this one did. And it can download YouTube videos.

"Garbage - bad encoding and audio sync is off"

 |  Version: Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate 7.8.18.20160913

Pros

Cheap, and easy to install

Cons

I had a trivial project putting a menu on an MP4 to create a DVD. The first try crashed - could not convert. I tried again, and it "succeeded", but the DVD had bad encoding artifacts (flashes, bad colors) and worse, the audio sync was off by 2 to 3 seconds.
UI is dreadful.

Summary

Complete waste. I will contest the payment if I do not get a refund.
