I am not one to often boast about good software but I cannot say how impressed I am with this video converter from OJOsoft. This little bit of software for R 156.00 enables me to convert files regardless of the original format into a number of different applications.
I have had a great amount of fun with it already, created two videos from Quicktime to MPEG then into 3GP format for mobile. A couple of seconds per conversion and we were away. This is going to help me grow my digital visual capabilities.
