WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe

WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe 5.16

Convert all your video files to suitable formats and create your own slideshows

Among the plethora of video conversion tools available out there, WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is surely one of the best in combining ease of use with a high level of functionality. It not only supports and converts between all kind of video codecs, but also allows you to use your best pictures to create slideshows with your favorite background music, download online videos from the most widely used sites, and apply some basic edits to your videos before conversion.

If I could only choose one feature out of the many available in this comprehensive tool, I’d certainly pick its true batch multiformat conversion capabilities. Nearly all media converters boast of providing the said feature or a lighter version of it, but the truth is that WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is one of the very few that let you build a conversion list in which each item can be converted to a different codec if so desired. Thus, you can batch any number of conversion tasks and apply in each case the output profile that better suits your preferences or the use you’ll be making of them.

When it comes to video and audio codecs or support for different devices, this media conversion tool is certainly on par with any other high-end conversion tool available in the market. All the most common and widely used video formats are represented, as well as all the most renowned portable devices and smartphones, including – in this new version – the latest iPhone 12 line of products. Video editing prior to performing any conversion task is also an option. The editing features provided, however, are fairly basic though certainly useful – they allow you to crop and trim your videos, adjust their volume level, and add external SRT subtitles to them.

There are two other functions that, if not exclusive to this program, are not common to a large number of media conversion tools – one refers to its video download capabilities (with support for 1000+ video sites, including all the usual suspects) and the other to its slideshow production tool, which lets you collect your best images and create a nice-looking video complete with your favorite soundtrack.

WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is mainly a video conversion tool, and in that sense, it does stand out among many of its competitors thanks to its true multiple output possibilities. If only to check this not-so-common functionality, I recommend anyone in the lookout for high-quality video conversions to give this excellent tool a try.
