4Videosoft YouTube Video Converter for Mac helps you convert media files into YouTube-compatible formats. Thus, you can easily turn your personal video samples – which may be either your own video recordings or files imported from other sources – into MP4, FLV, SWF, and WebM, which you can then upload to the YouTube sharing site.
The program comes with a modern and attractive interface, which is both intuitive and user-friendly. You can browse your computer from within the application to find and load the files you want to convert easily. Once the videos are loaded, you get the chance to take a quick look to the files' properties and read additional information about each imported item, like the type of file, the format, the frame rate, the size, and the resolution. This will help you decide whether it is necessary to change some of the above-mentioned parameters when converting or just keep them as such.
Outputting into YouTube-compatible files is done easily by selecting one of the already-configured profiles. Still, advanced users can tweak the output settings in terms of video codec, bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio, and resolution, as well as tailor audio parameters for a better video and audio experience.
The tool provides basic yet useful editing features. This way, you have the ability to merge multiple small clips into a larger media file, so that you can play short videos without interruption. In addition, you can crop the displayed image, trim a video scene, customize luminosity issues, and adjust the sound volume. Furthermore, you can add text and picture watermarks to protect your authoring rights on the project. Each editing task supports real-time preview, so that you can see at any moment the adjustments you made on the original file.
The conversion process runs well, without interruptions or blockages. The interface is appealing and easy to manage by both experienced users and complete beginners. The editing features are ordinary yet useful for basic video appearance customization. All these features make YouTube Video Converter from 4Videosoft a great tool when it comes to preparing personal video files for YouTube upload.
