Aneesoft iPhone Video Converter re-encodes all you video files using formats that your iPhone can play, such as MPEG-4 and H.264. Unlike your iPhone 4S or iPhone 5, which only support a handful of video codecs, this tool can open any of the most widely used video formats, such as MPEG, AVI, FLV, 3GP, MOV, or WMV. If we add to this its support for high-definition video, the number of codecs covered is simply impressive.
The program can batch convert any number of video files, and you can combine them in any way that fits your needs – you can put together on the same conversion list files using different codecs, and you can tell the program to convert each of them into a different (though all iPhone-compatible) output format. These formats are all neatly organized in device-based profiles. Thus, all you need to do is look for your iPhone model and select the output format of your choice, normally among MP4, MOV, and M4V. You can also choose to save only the audio stream of a certain video – here the options are M4A, WAV, AIFF, and MP3.
Before starting the conversion process itself, you may want to correct, enhance, or simply change something in your source videos that you do not want to see on your iPhone. The programs video editor allows you to crop and trim your videos, change their aspect ratio (to make the most of your iPhone’s screen), cut and merge video files, change their brightness and contrast, and to apply some basic video effects, such as turning some of them black-and-white.
The program’s interface is not the most attractive I have ever come across, but it is intuitive enough. It performs its conversion processes quickly, and produces just the results you were expecting. Its built-in video player will help you make the right choices and avoid surprises, and will allow you to take some high-quality snapshots of your favorite frames and scenes while you are at it.
