For example, that can be your output movie folder. The available view modes are standard to the modern operating systems and include large icons, small icons, list, details, thumbnails.
The collection of codecs for the necessary conversions have been assembled considering all the conversion needs. Besides, the publisher site recommends download locations for several codec packs should they be needed.
Cons: Though video file splicing and splitting has been mentioned as features the help documentation or the interface does not seem to have any details on how this is to be done. The controls on the interface do not show up labels on mouse over.
Overall: On an average the application is quite extensive but the interface needs figuring out for proper use. Help documentation also is not very detailed. The basic feature of conversion is well implemented though. Overall thus this is a 3 star package.
