    hello,
    ive tried 3 different video converters and i cant seem to find a good one! xilisoft gives me the control i want but but the sound becomes more unsynchronized the longer the video, and magic video converter keeps the sound good but sets the aspect ratio off so wide screen movies look horrible. also, sometimes converted movies by xilisoft will not move to my ipod because it says its the wrong format.

    does anyone know of/use a GOOD video converter that gives you fill control of bitrate, size, and aspect ratio AND perfectly syncs the sound with the video?

    thanks

    Throw in another vote for Videora. That program is awesome. Makes it so easy. If you're happy using it's presets (which are very good) you can be converting in under 10 seconds.

    Best program I tried so far (including Videora, ipodme, xilisoft...) is XviD4PSP. It have a bunch of presets for different videoqualities, can embed subtitles, you can choose audiotrack if your video contain more than one. And it converts fast, updates constantly (last week I updated twice...), and each update brings real features, like multithreading. Oh, and it is free, support various donation options, but does not restrict if you don't.

    to illustrate i will copypaste changes from version 5.027 to 5.028:
    For more easy crop to fit video for iPhone added 1.500 out aspect (for MP4 iPhone and MP4 iPod Touch formats).
    Added 30.000 fps framerate.
    From main installer unnecessary splitters. These functions must do your codec pack now.
    To main installer added AviSynth 2.5.7 MT (multi-processor version) now.
    Added a lot of new filtering presets, many of them with a multi-processor support. Thanks HellGerhard and Andrew_B.
    FFMpegSource decoder updated to version 1.15. Now it is a static version does not require the installation of files in the system32.
    Updated components: ffmpeg, MP4Box, x264.
    Added MKVRebuilder tool. It helps rebuild damaged MKV files.
    Added FFRebuilder tool. Use it to decode or rebuild any problematic or damaged file.
    Added translations to French, Spanish, Hebrew, Portuguese and Chinese. Thanks to mwm, leglaude061, Ginger, chrono_kazumi and evanren.
    For simple bitrate encoding added auto bitrate calculation.
    Fixed audio tracks selection.
    Fixed crop aspect fix for cropped sources.
    iPod profiles renamed to MP4 iPod 5.0G and MP4 iPod 5.5G.
    Archos profile renamed to MP4 Archos 5G.
    Tweaked and fixed Archos format.
    Added MP4 Archos 650 format.
    Added Italian translation, thanks to 9600pro.
    Fixed resolution masks.
    Fixed XviD profile creation crash.

    i'll throw in another plug for Videora. Has worked flawlessly for me every time.

    (I use Handbrake for DVD (VIDEO_TS or ISO) conversion, and Videora for everything else (AVI, MPG, WMV, etc)
