It can play and convert full length movies to any other format--with no time limitations. Its promise of doing “for free what other encoders can't do for money” is no idle boast actually. This pretty easy-to-use 18 meg freeware can encode to and from 3gp/3g2 (Nokia, Siemens, Sony, Ericsson), asf, avi (DivX, H263, H263+, H264, Xvid, MPEG-4, MSMPEG4 etc.), swf, dat, fli, flc, flv (Flash), mkv, mpg (MPEG-1, MPEG-2), mov (H263, H263+, H264, MPEG-4 etc.), MP4 (H263, H263+, H264, MPEG-4), ogg, qt, rm, ram, rmvb, str (Play Station), ts (HDTV), viv, vob, and wmv video formats. Audio file format conversions include ac3, amr, mp2, mp3, mp4, ogg, ra, wav, and wma. iPod, DVD, MOV… you can throw virtually anything at it.
