iCoolsoft iPod Converter for Mac 5.0
iCoolsoft iPod Converter for Mac is a video conversion tool that can come in handy for anyone who wants to convert video files to play them on the iPod. The application can convert pretty much any modern video file into H.264, MPEG-4, MOV, M4V, WMV, and WebM. Any device that supports these formats will be able to play the files that you convert using this tool. The app includes conversion profiles for the iPhone, iPad and AppleTV. The newest models of the iPhone and iPad have not yet been included on the profiles list.
The graphical user interface is quite simple, and previous users of other commercial converters will feel right at home with it. The interface includes a video player that you can use to view your content before converting it and you can access a video editor from the top toolbar. The editor lets you trim and crop your videos and adjust some of their settings like brightness, contrast and saturation.
I tested this converter with an 720p MKV file. I chose the iPod Touch H.264 profile for conversion. The video was 1-minute long and it was converted in a bit under 50 seconds. The resulting file looked quite good and it was imported into iTunes without any problems.
In conclusion, iCoolsoft iPod Converter for Mac is a good converter. It has all the features that you can expect from a video converter. The input format support is very good, and the output format support guarantees that your files will be playable on a variety of devices.
