iSofter DVD to YouTube Converter is, as the name states, an application designed to produce Youtube-compatible videos from any digital video or DVD source.
This application converts video at an excellent speed, and the output quality is extremely good. It has a limited format support, only producing MPEG-4 files, both DivX and XviD, but the job is done extremely well.
All in all, this application is a good choice if you need to publish video to Youtube or similar sites, because the lack of supported formats is compensated by a low price.
There is a trial version that can be downloaded for free, with the only limitation that it places a watermark over the produced video file.
Feature Set (3.5/5)
Compared with other more complete solutions, the iSofter DVD to Youtube converter lacks a lot of features, being the most noticeable a larger support for output formats. The application outputs DivX or XviD videos that follow Youtube’s recommendations for video uploading, that is, 320×240 resolution videos with MP3 or WMA audio. Several pre-set optimized profiles allow you to produce different sized videos for playing in any MP4-compatible portable device.
Luckily, the only job this software performs is done extremely well, at high speeds and with an outstanding output quality. The software can automatically detect your computer’s CPU and optimize the conversion process accordingly, to achieve the best possible speed. Additionally, the application doesn’t depend on codecs installed in your system, as it comes with all necessary codecs built in, although it has the ability to use external codecs if you prefer to do so.
The software also lets you easily choose the scenes you want to rip from a DVD disc, and another nice feature is its user interface, very modern looking yet comfortable to use.
Ease Of Use (5/5)
Despite having a great looking interface, its use is as simple as it can be. Just select the output profile and you will be able to generate a Youtube-compatible video with just one click.
Ease Of Installation And Setup (5/5)
Extremely easy and quick installation; the software is lightweight enough to be installed in a matter of seconds.
Quality Of Copy (5/5)
The produced videos have an excellent quality that will please any Youtube user. The conversion results are better than Youtube’s own conversion process, so if your online videos need to have a high quality this application will be of help.
