How to Convert Videos Effectively?
As devices get more and more pocket friendly and packing more camera lenses, our ability to shoot 4K videos has increased exponentially.
We are getting high resolution videos from GoPros, DJIs, DSLRs, iPhone or Android devices. Now the question is how to play and store them. 4K videos, on one hand can provide rich details, better sound and colour reproduction, but on other hand tends to take up too much space. A standard one minute of footage in 1080p at 30 frames takes up about 130 MB. Same in 4K takes a whopping 375 MB.
Another drawback of 4K video is that most hardware, which is 3-5 years old, cannot handle the video easily. It results in problems such as choppy 4K playback in VLC or iMovie, frame dropping, sound and video out of sync, no sound on video, blurry playback quality, failed to play due to format issue, etc. So, the only solution is to compress the files and convert to other formats for easier playback and storage.
Sure, there are plethora of tools out there which claims to do the same, but with what I will be recommending, I am pretty much sure that you wouldn’t need other tools, as they lack in most useful features.
WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is an all-in-one video software as a 4K HD video converter/compressor, video downloader, and video editor, which gives you an ultimate control over any video files on your PC.
So, why should you use this tool?
1. Hardware Accelerated
WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is few of the tools that use level 3 hardware acceleration. GPU computing is highly useful to the video processing with large data volume, or say intensive, highly parallel and simple controllable computing that will be executed in stages. GPUs, unlike CPUs can process intensive and repetitive tasks. When playing the large 4K H.264 or HEVC video files without hardware acceleration, your player has great chance to crash, stutter, lag, freeze or have errors in reading, loading, or playing.
Most monitor units cannot process such large video size and high definition, resolution, bitrate, code rate and frame rate. However, what they collect are the raw video data signals, and mostly are a series of dynamic video signals. They will cause data explosion, causing a huge pressure on CPU calculation, and accordingly might even even damage your CPU. 4K videos usually utilize H.264 and H.265 codecs, with high compression ratio. So the decoding needs weighty operation and has high requirement on the decoding power of PC, player device, editor apps, video format converters.
GPU-based acceleration will be beneficial to fast and smooth video conversion. It will offload CPU burden maximally, reduce power consumption for video decoding and encoding, and motivate CPU and GPU to work together in optimal and coordinated way, keeping the temperature of CPU can be maintained at a low and normal level without overheating the CPU.
