The program is easy to manage so that both advanced users and complete beginners can use it without difficulty.
The tool opens with a simple and intuitive interface, with all functions displayed on the main window for easy access. Adding the files you wish to convert is done either by drag-and-drop or by browsing for files from within the app. Once they are imported, you have the chance to preview your videos both as thumbnails and expanded to full screen. The utility supports batch conversion and merging multiple files in a single video. It can output to most popular video formats, selectable from a comprehensive list of profiles. You can preserve the HD resolution of the original files, or you can lower it down in order to save precious disk space.

Unlike the Windows version, AceThinker Video Master for Mac doesn't come with any editing options. However, this drawback is offset by smart downloading features that few similar programs provide. Namely, you are able to limit the bandwidth of your network connection so other running processes won't suffer from insufficient resources. Furthermore, you can set the program to close automatically, to shut down your computer, or to put your system to sleep when the downloading operation is completed.
The application also works as a video browser. Therefore, you can access most common video sharing sites from within the application and look for the desired file. You can ask the app to notify you when it finds the media file you wish to download. If the video can't be downloaded directly, a handy recording feature can help you save a copy of the file to your computer.
All the above-mentioned feature make AceThinker Video Master a great media file converter and downloader. Still, the lack of video editing features leaves the program incomplete.
