Converting media files

The Converter allows you to convert your media files to another file format.

To convert a song or video

  1. Switch to the Converter view.
  2. Click Files > Add files... or drag and drop files from a playlist.
  3. Choose the files to convert.
  4. Click Open. The files appear on the list in the Converter view.
  5. Click the menu button with the name of the current conversion setting in the processing window to choose a target format (See Figure 1).
  6. Click Start to start the converting process.
    Note: For best results, do not perform other tasks during the encoding process, which increase the processor workload.

All files that finished converting move from the input list to the Player.

Tip: The original file is not modified by the conversion. This guarantees you cannot destroy any file. If a conversion result does not meet your expectations, simply convert the original file once more, using different settings.

Choose a conversion profile or create an own individual profile.
