With the range of pocketable devices claiming to be able to show video getting ever wider, there's one piece of software that's becoming increasingly essential; the video converter. Not only do you have to have the video in the correct format to show on your device, but it has to be the right display size and frame-rate, too.
Mobile phones and media players often come with transfer utilities of their own, but not many undertake the format and size conversions, too. Transfer My Video covers over 600 devices from phone makes like Apple, Blackberry, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Palm, Samsung and Sony Ericsson, as well as specialist media player makers like Cowon, Creative and iRiver.
There are a few missing, but you can set the conversion parameters manually to cater for some of those. Once you've selected the device you want to transfer to, the corresponding parameters are used automatically whenever you run the program, until you change devices.
