    1. AVS Video Converter

    If you need a straightforward video converter that doesn’t stump you when trying to figure out its interface, this would be the video converter to go for. Among the formats AVS Video Converter supports are AVI, MPEG 1 and 2, QuickTime (MOV), WMV, MP4 for iPod and PSP and also RealMedia.

    An attractive feature of AVS Video Converter is its ability to rip and convert files from a DVD or minidisc. There’s also support for HD formats ranging from AVCHD, MPEG-2 HD and WMV. There are very few video converters in this price range that support such a wide range of high definition video formats.

    You would, however, be a little disappointed if you wish to convert FLV video from YouTube. AVS only converts the video but not the audio.

    Still, at $39.00, AVS Video Converter can be considered a bargain.

    Any Video Converter Pro 

    Any Video Converter may not be as versatile as AVS when it comes to the range of formats support. However, if you're looking for a video converter that supports formats for portable media players, this is a video converter worth considering.

    Any Video Converter Pro makes up for the limited input formats by offering an easy-to-use interface. It also comes bundled with a YouTube video downloader. All you have to do is cut and paste the YouTube or Google Video URL into Any Video Converter and within minutes you’ll end up with a video converted for you portable media player.

    However, if you’re looking to convert audio files, you’ll be disappointed. Any Video Converter Pro doesn’t support audio conversion.

    There’s virtually no learning curve to contend with. One thing you would find annoying is the requirement that you have to select your video output format first before importing you input video. Once this is done, you’re not allowed to change your video output format.
