Editor's Note: This review has been removed from our side-by-side comparison because it no longer ranks as a top 10 product. The original review is below, but check out our current top 10 about Video Converter Software here.
ImTOO Video Converter is a good option for video converter software, with a hefty collection of input files, output files and editing tools. If you are comparing a few video converters, you may notice that ImTOO Video Converter bears a striking resemblance to products from Xilisoft. According to ImToo's site, the two companies "work together as cooperating partners with shared resources and independent identities."
None of the best video converters are too far apart in terms of quality, but Xilisoft Video converter Ultimate and ImTOO Video Converter seem almost identical, with a few exceptions. They are both good tools for a wide range of conversion tasks.
ImTOO Video Converter can convert more than 150 different file types, including popular files like AVI, WMV, MOV, MP4 and MPEG. It will also convert less popular files including NUT, M4V, SWF, DV and more.
We really like that this software supports and converts audio files. You can also rip files directly from DVDs.
One of our favorite features of ImTOO Video Converter is that it caters to the iPod crowd. You can select a specific output for your Apple device without questioning screen dimensions. Simply select your appropriated Apple device, i.e. iPhone, iPod Touch, iPod Video or Apple TV, and the software will configure your video for you. This application also has specific output selections for PSP, PS3 and Blackberry.
ImTOO Video Converter can batch convert files with different file outputs, split output files, adjust aspect ratios, convert audio and extract audio from your videos. It will also keep your ID tags on audio files.
For advanced users, this software can select video and audio codices, video and audio bitrates, resolution, sample rate and frame rate. However, we would have liked the software to include the ability to merge several videos into one file.

ImTOO Video Converter includes a comprehensive in-application help guide, online FAQs and email support. Our emails were answered in about a day. We would have liked to see the user guide include a search feature.
Although ImTOO Video Converter doesn’t include absolutely everything we looked for in video converter software, it does offer an expansive list of conversion file types and can extract and convert audio files.
