Video Converter: How good is it?

As the name suggests, UniConverter is mainly a converter software and it’s mainly for videos. Compared with much similar software like Handbrake, UniConverter builds in high-speed video conversion technology with faster-converting speed. And, it supports many formats and devices, not only the mainstream video & audio formats, such as MP4, AVI, FLV, WMV, MOV, TS, audio formats such as MP3, WMA, WMA, AAC, but the latest mobile devices and social sharing platforms are also supported.

UniConverter is a good software as it is easy to use and all conversions can be done in three easy steps. After opening the software to add files, pull down to select the output format, and click Convert to complete. It’s as easy as that. Basically, UniConverter can meet your needs of converting different videos in your daily use. Besides, batch conversion is also supported.

Importantly, UniConverter is good to go and it is fast in converting due to the below two key features:

GPU acceleration

Wondershare UniConverter performances well even on old CPUs just because it takes full advantage of your GPU and accelerates the converting. A good many graphics cards from Intel, AMD, and Nvidia are supported. You can take a look at the specification page to check your GPU.

You can check if your GPU is supported here in Preference:

High-Speed Conversion

It’s always recommended to turn on High-Speed Conversion here:

If this option is on, you can convert your videos from one supported format to another, like MKV to MP4, without quality loss.

Video Editing with UniConverter

In addition to converting, the software also provides functions such as video editing. Before converting, you can edit your videos, delete or cut the necessary parts, crop unwanted parts, merge two or more videos, rotate the video, add a subtitle or watermark to your video, add effects, adjust brightness or saturation, etc. It’s really helpful in doing so!

If you are looking for an NLE (non-linear editing) application, Wondershare UniConverter can be of great help! 

YouTube Downloading

UniConverter also works as a YouTube as well as many other online video downloaders. According to its official site, it supports over 1000 video sites. YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Dailymotion, etc are the main sites it supports.

It is able to download YouTube and other streaming videos up to 8K along with their subtitle and thumbnail. Besides, you can download YouTube directly to MP3 with 320 kbps quality! You can set a one-click downloading too and batch downloading is well-supported.

Screen Recording

In addition, Wondershare is really powerful in screen recording. It’s extremely useful to make software or other tutorials, record your splendid moments in games, save your cherished video calls, etc.

With UniConverter, you can record part of your screen or the full screen with system sound and microphone. As you can see from the below screenshot, Wondershare Screen Recorder is very powerful in recording with rich functions. You can customize the recording size, record one than one screen, set the frame rate, quality, and output format. You can even schedule the recording or stop it after some time as you prefer. The shortcut is also supported.

Video Compression

Wondershare UniConverter can help you easily compress the video to specified size with one click, which is very useful in some cases where the storage space is not large or the file size for uploading is limited. You can freely drag the slider to set the compressed video size, you can modify the resolution, and manually set the bit rate.

DVD/BD Burning and DVD Ripping

This software supports extracting DVD discs and converting them into videos, as well as burn videos into DVDs. Although this function is relatively niched now, it is still just needed for some users.

In addition, Wondershare UniConverter also supports the creation of DVD/BD menus when burning, which can make your videos look very professional!

UniConverter Review: The Toolbox

In addition to all the above functions, Wondershare UniConverter also integrates some additional functions, such as VR video converting(combining the left and right separated VR videos into ordinary videos), and making a GIF, converting music CDs, etc. These “bonus” functions for users are very practical and cost-effective.

Does Wondershare UniConverter have a watermark? The Trial Limitations

Yes and No! Wondershare UniConverter does not have any watermark in converting and downloading. However, if you want to compress your video, you will get a watermark in full length. If you are running a trial version without it being registered, you are limited to convert or burn only 1/3 of your video or audio and a total of 5 videos can be downloaded from YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc. Video merging and burning are not available for the trial version.
