This application is intended to convert media files to other formats compatible with various devices. It has an intuitive interface, whose functions can be easily discovered from the first. Various input video and audio formats, including the most popular ones, are supported. However, in contrast with its support of batch conversion, this program does not allow importing complete folders.
The imported files can be easily previewed. Yet, unlike other applications of the same type, this one does not let take snapshots. Some authoring functions are supported, although not as many as those allowed by other converters. Thus, you can use it to trim a segment or add external subtitles to a movie. In addition, if the files are very large, you can make them fit specific or standard storage sizes by splitting them automatically.
Output profiles are conveniently arranged in a tree-like structure, in which the nodes are the names of the supporting devices, including iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, Zune, Xbox360, PSP, PS3, Sony Walkman and PMP. This way, you will not face any difficulty to find the desired profile and avoid compatibility issues in the future. Moreover, other general audio and video formats are supported as well. Since these profiles can be customized and the changes can be saved for later use, it is possible to turn this tool into a general-purpose media converter. Unfortunately, the application does not support using individual conversion parameters, so all the items on your list should be converted to the same profile.
All in all, Allok Video to MP4 Converter is a fine application. However, it may go unnoticed among so many other similarly-priced converters supporting more features. It is up to you to try its free version and see if it works for you.
