Aiseesoft YouTube Converter Suite is an efficient and convenient combination of three full-featured applications – YouTube Downloader Pro, FLV Video Converter and Video to Flash Converter. Thus, this all-in-one bundle offers you all the tools you need to download your Flash videos from YouTube, edit them, and even convert them into any of the most popular video formats. Besides, you can also convert videos in other formats into YouTube-compatible Flash video files for you to share on the Web.
The overall appearance of this suite is certainly impressive – all three tools display an attractive, well-designed, and clearly differentiated interface. Actually, these tools are also available as independent, standalone applications (hence the different layouts). What Aiseesoft has done is to create a main menu where you can select any of them in a more convenient and easy way. As a result, some of the editing functions available in the two conversion tools – such as the video trimming and cropping features – suffer from some degree of overlapping. Something similar happens to the conversion capabilities offered in the YouTube download manager which occasionally may make the two video editing tools that go with it completely unnecessary.
However, if you need to edit your downloaded videos (or any other Flash video files present in your computer, for that matter) before converting them, this suite offers you the extensive editing and conversion functionality of Aiseesoft FLV Video Converter. Here you can trim, crop, and add attractive effects to your FLV videos, and then transform them into any of the many video formats supported when necessary. To help you select the right output profile, these are neatly organized in two lists – a codec-based list, and a device-oriented list.
Aiseesoft Video to Flash Converter will perform the inverse task – it will convert all of your video files into Flash videos (FLV and SWF) quickly and efficiently and edit them before conversion.
Finally, Aiseesoft YouTube Downloader Pro offers you more than just an attractive interface where you can see the progress of your downloads – you can also convert them into any other popular video format once downloaded, and play them back using the convenient built-in player provided.
All in all, YouTube Converter Suite is certainly a set of tools worth trying.
- Nice-looking interfaces
