Ever had a video that you wanted to play on your PSP, Playstation, iPod, iPhone or XBOX but you couldn't do it because it wouldn't recognize the format? Well this is what basically Xilisoft Video Converter does, it converts video files from one format to another. And don’t be fooled by the name, it also converts audio files to several formats and animated images. Xilisoft Video Converter is an all-in-one pack that would save you from the pain of converting multimedia files to a format compatible with your device. So let’s throw in some technical things too, Xilisoft converts:
- video files from AVI, MPEG, WMV, MP4, FLV, MKV, H.264/MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, MOV, RM, RMVB, M4V, VOB, ASF, 3GP, 3G2, SWF, H.261, H.264, DV, DIF, MJPG, MJPEG, DVR-MS, NUT, QT, YUV, DAT, MPV, NSV AVCHD Video (*.mts, *.m2ts), H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (*.mp4), MPEG2 HD Video (*.mpg; *.mpeg), MPEG-4 TS HD Video (*.ts), MPEG-2 TS HD Video (*.ts), Quick Time HD Video (*.mov), WMV HD Video (*.xwmv), Audio-Video Interleaved HD Video (*.avi) to the following formats - AVI, MPEG, WMV, MP4, FLV, H.264/MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, MOV, RMVB, ASF, 3GP, 3G2, SWF, VOB, TS, DV H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (*.mp4), MPEG2 HD Video (*.mpg; *.mpeg), MPEG-4 TS HD Video (*.ts), MPEG-2 TS HD Video (*.ts), Quick Time HD Video (*.mov), WMV HD Video (*.wmv), Audio-Video Interleaved HD Video (*.avi)

Why a conversion is needed? Well, if you have a multimedia device you’ll see that it does recognize only a few file formats, so with Xilisoft Video Converter you can see a video or an audio file on any of the following devices:
- iPod, iPod nano, iPod classic, iPod shuffle, iPod touch
- iPhone, iPhone 3G, Apple TV
- PSP, PS3
- Xbox, Xbox 360
- General 3GP mobile phone, BlackBerry, etc.
- General MP4 players: Archos, Creative Zen, iRiver, etc.
- Window Mobile device: Pocket PC, Dell Axim X51, HP iPaq hw6500 series, etc.
Impressive list of file formats and multimedia devices supported. However, it all comes with a price, and while the Xilisoft Standard edition costs $36, the Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate edition costs $56. Unless you are familiar with a service called TrialPay, that basically lets you obtain Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate free of charge when you opt in for another service or perform a specific action (like opening an eBay account).
For those that don’t know what TrialPay is and what completing an offer means, here’s a quote from a previous post on what that means:
The "complete an offer" first sounds a bit tricky, but trust me that if you used Trialpay before there's always a chance you'd complete an offer that costs you way less then the full price of Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate or even find an offer that requires no money from you, just to sign-up. For instance if you need to buy flowers, stamps or anything else that crosses your mind, you can do that via Trialpay and still get Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate free as a bonus when you complete that offer (Bestbuy, stamps.com, Sony, apple, and many others are available as advertisers you can complete an offer with).
Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate is a good choice for a video converting software, and it would be a pity to miss the opportunity to get it for free via TrialPay. You can simply visit this page and decide if you want to go forward or not, or at least see what TrialPay is about – depending on your country you’ll see several offers from advertisers, and if there’s one that fits what you need now go for it and you’ll get in exchange Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate free.
Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate is only one of many other offers that Trialpay has, you can see a full list in one of my older (but updated) posts – “Free with Trialpay” list of offers.
