BlazeVideo iPad Video Converter has been specifically designed to help you convert your DVDs or video files into a format that the iPad family of products can play – namely, a combination of MPEG-4 for the video stream and AAC for the audio. Together with its conversion capabilities, this utility also offers you a comprehensive video editor, a slideshow creation tool, the possibility of cutting and merging your video files, and a YouTube downloader.
Actually, it is more the range of extra tools that comes with it than its conversion capabilities that makes this video converter somehow different from its many competitors. The conversion process itself is still worth mentioning, of course, but its strict limitation to the iPad family and to the MPEG-4 video format detracts somewhat from its value. However, and in all fairness, the resulting MP4 video files can also be enjoyed not only in other Apple products – such as iPods and iPhones – but also in many other portable devices with support for MPEG-4.
This video conversion tool comes with a video editor that provides a wider variety of features. Thus, it allows you to clip and crop your videos, to adjust their saturation, contrast, and hue levels, to add a subtitle stream, to mirror horizontally and vertically your videos, and to apply a custom watermark to them. Finally, the program also offers you a video cutter and a video merger, each with their own specific interfaces. You can use the video cutter also to capture snapshots of selected frames, while the video merger will allow you to combine your videos to create MP4 movies complete with title and credits. If we add to all this extra functionality the possibility of downloading and converting FLV YouTube videos without leaving the program, you will surely agree that this program is much more than just a video converter for your iPad.
