Ultra AVI Converter is a comprehensive yet simple video conversion tool with support for all the most popular video codecs. You can convert your AVI files (or portions of them) into MPEG, WMV, MP4, or 3GP videos, and make use of the program’s built-in player to check any file on the conversion list. You can take advantage of the device-based output profiles provided and customize the resulting video file so that it fits your specific preferences.

The program’s interface is clear and straightforward. You can add as many files as required to the conversion list and re-encode them in batches into the selected output codec. Though you can use files in different input codecs for the input, the program will convert them all into the latest video format selected. Specific output profiles for Apple, BlackBerry, Sony, Archos, Creative, or iRiver devices are available, which are always a great help for those not so familiar with video transcoding or with the formats supported by their favorite devices. General output profiles are also provided, including presets to produce MPEG, WMV, AVI, ASF, and FLV video files. Regrettably, and unlike most of its competitors, Ultra AVI Converter does not support audio extraction, though you can tell the program to add a soundtrack to any source video using your favorite music files.

The program’s video editing tools are limited to a simple video cutter. It will allow you to select only those sections that you want to convert into a different format or simple to extract from the original file. Though you can add any SRT, SUB, ASS, SSA, and SMI subtitle file to your source video, you will not find any utility in Ultra AVI Converter to help you synchronize them with the source file. However, this feature is not easy to find in video conversion tools.

If you are looking for a straightforward way of converting your AVI files into format that your favorite devices can play, Ultra AVI Converter is an option to explore. If “as is” video conversions is what you need, you will not be disappointed.
