Xilisoft's range of video converters is designed to handle just about any conversion needed, from AVI to MPEG or WMV to DivX. Xilisoft Video Converter Platinum For Mac handles all these and more, including MP4, H.264/AVC, AVCHD, MKV, RM, MOV, XviD, 3GP, etc.
In addition, it allows you to convert interchangeably between MP3, WMA, WAV, RA, M4A, AAC, AC3, OGG audio. Whether it's just some music to listen to on your iPod, or some videos so show friends on your iPhone, chances are Xilisoft Video Converter Platinum For Mac can handle it.
The Xilisoft range (there's Standard, Platinum and Ultimate) all look virtually the same and do the same things. However, compared to the standard version, the Platinum version allows you to merge different sources, clip segments and includes previewing options. However, it features less video editing options than the Ultimate edition so there's no ability to crop video or add watermarks for example.
The interface is elegantly designed and easy to use. On startup, it gives you three steps to convert a video or file but you don't really need them because the buttons across the top are self explanatory. You can preview video files in the bottom right-hand corner and also trim them. Conversion is extremely quick and a green progress bar keeps you posted on its progress.
If you've been unable to find a tool that can handle all the formats you need it to, or found other conversion tools far from user-friendly, then Xilisoft Video Converter Platinum For Mac is an excellent option.
