Leawo Prof. Media is a versatile app intended to perform various operations involving media. Thus, the tool is an all-in-one Blu-ray ripper, Blu-ray copier, Blu-ray creator, DVD ripper, DVD copier, DVD creator, media converter and video downloader. Despite its multiple features, the design of the interface seamlessly combines them in a single tool. In this respect, the program boasts visual coherence and easiness of navigation, something that is not always present in other similar products.
It is hard to refer to all its features in a single review, but I will try to write about the most relevant of them at least. Probably the best features are those related to media conversion. Leawo Prof. Media comes with a powerful video converter that supports importing from various sources, including discs, video files and complete folders. Luckily, high definition video up to 4K is supported both as input and output. The tool lets you pick an output profile that best matches your preferences and even the intended device. However, it seems that it does not support as many formats as other converters. In this regard, such formats as MP4, MKV, AVI, FLV and MOV are allowed.
Together with the conversion features, Leawo Prof. Media allows various basic video editing operations. For instance, it lets you choose one of the internal subtitles available or add them from an external file. It is also possible to pick an audio track in case the video comes with various of them. The source footage can also be trimmed and cropped to keep just the desired parts. Likewise, you can use the tool to apply various effects, like simulating 3D and removing noise. Similarly, the app supports merging multiple files.
As a burner, the tool supports various types of discs, such as DVD and BD. It also lets you create menus, and for this purpose, there are various templates available. What is more, the app can help create copies of your discs. As to this, it supports copying not only other discs but also folders and ISO images.
Finally, Leawo Prof. Media can help you download video from various video-sharing sites. The app can successfully strip the actual link to the video file from the page URL.
In general, the main asset of Leawo Prof. Media is certainly its versatility. In this respect, it is a Swiss knife of media manipulation. The product is shareware and its features can be bought separately or as a bundle. It is a shame that some features cannot be tried because their trial period has already expired even when the product has just been installed.
