Apex iPhone Video Converter is an application with a pretty self-explanatory title – it allows you to encode video clips of multiple formats (e.g. AVI, MOV, VOB, 3GP) to the format supported by iPhone devices, namely MP4.
The interface of the program is plain and simple to navigate through. Video clips can be imported via the file browser only, because the “drag and drop” method is not supported. Batch processing is allowed.
In the list you can check out the source path, split span, frame size, output type and status of each video. Once you specify the output destination, you can proceed with the encoding job.
Furthermore, you can change audio and video properties when it comes to the size, bit rate, volume, frame rate, channel mode and sample frequency rate.
On top of that, you can preview clips in a small, built-in media player and split them by marking the start and end position, remove an item from the list or clear the entire queue, as well as enable Apex iPhone Video Converter to automatically turn off the computer after encoding.
The video conversion program uses a moderate amount of system resources, has a fair response time, quickly finishes a task and generally delivers a fair image and sound quality. On the other hand, there is no help file available and Apex iPhone Video Converter failed several tasks during our testing (e.g. ASF-to-MP4). We recommend this tool with reservations.
