This application is specifically aimed to convert video clips and make them compatible with iPod. However, it also supports converting movies between other formats, extracting audio from video, downloading video from the Web and carrying out some basic editing operations.
The main advantage of this converter is that it supports importing not only standard files but also downloading the source clips from the Internet. Then, you can use the authoring functions available to make changes to them, such as extracting a segment, merging various clips, cropping the frame, tweaking picture parameters, applying visual effects, embedding external subtitles and substituting the original audio track.
Lots of output profiles are available and they have been classed according to the intended devices, mostly those developed by Apple. Moreover, you can customize the built-in presets and even create new ones. Luckily, you do not need to convert all the files on your list to the same output parameters; yet, you cannot add various conversion profiles to the same source file or transfer the files directly to the intended device.

However, it looks so similar to other products by the same developer that it seems all of them are just the same application with different names. This is noticeable not only from the visual point of view but also its functions and supported formats.
