Digital Media Converter Pro is a flexible and comprehensive media conversion tool with a plethora of other functions and features. Apart from the obvious re-encoding capabilities, this application can also be used to edit your videos, record TV programs, rip CDs, create audio playlists, and extract the audio of your favorite video files, among other useful features.

With its extensive support for over 170 well-known media formats and more than 70 portable devices (including all the latest mobile phones), it is hard to find a video or audio file that this tool cannot edit and convert. You can re-encode entire folders or your own selection of multiple files in one single operation, and send them to your iPod or PlayStation Portable without leaving the program. All these codecs, formats, and devices have been neatly organized into a clear catalog of output profiles, where you can easily browse and select your preferred gadget or codec. Note that any of these profiles can be further customized to fit your specific needs.

Fully integrated with your Windows 7 Media Center, Digital Media Converter Pro can convert DVR-MS files and television shows into various formats, remove TV commercials, as well as to keep an eye on any new recording being stored in a folder of your choice and perform on it whatever action you selected.

There is a couple of features that set this tool apart from the hundreds of media converters available in the market – one is the possibility of adding new media files to your conversion list directly from the Web, and the other is its file repair tool. The former allows you to paste any URL that points to a media file, download it and convert it into your preferred output format. The latter will correct some of the most widespread errors you may find (especially, but not exclusively) downloaded video files – corrupted headers in AVI files, WMV and WMA files that cannot be located, packet synchronization errors in MPEG files (together with missing end-of-file markers), end-of-file problems in MOV files, etc.

If only for these two features alone, Digital Media Converter Pro is an application that deserves checking.
