How do I speed up the conversion of my files?

Conversion speed is dependent upon the length of the source file, as well as the configuration of your computer. Another factor would be the output settings you have chosen, as the higher output formatting will take longer due to the increased settings. It is recommended to quite all unnecessary programs on your computer before you start the conversion, as the process is also very process intensive.

1. After you load the file into the software, click on the Target button to select output video in lower resolution. This will unfortunately reduce the output quality due to the lower settings. (For common video, DVD, and DRM protected files.)

2. Click on the High Speed Conversion button on bottom if it’s showing as available. This feature is used for common video files only. To get detailed instructions on using this feature, follow below information:

High Speed Conversion is a technology that was developed to allow you to make the conversion of video files between formats at high speeds without losing quality.

To be able to activate and use High Speed Conversion, the formats of both the source file and the output file have to be supported by our software.
Supported Input format: H.264 codec format of MKV, AVI, MPG, TS, TRP, MP4, M4V, M2TS, MTS, MOV, FLV.
Supported output formats: MKV, AVI, MP4, M4V, MOV.
Supported output formats for devices: iPhone X, 8, 7, 7 plus, iPhone 6s, 6s plus, iPhone 6, 6 plus, iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4, iPad, iPad 2, The New iPad, Apple TV, Apple TV 2, The New Apple TV, PS3, XOOM, Flyer, PlayBook, Galaxy S, Captivate, Galaxy Tab, Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4/5/6, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Nexus.

On the bottom of the Convert tab, enable the High Speed Conversion switch and a window will pop up, click the Turn on button. After that, click the Convert button and the software will automatically use the High Speed Conversion technology for your file.

3. If you have an NVIDIA graphics, 2nd generation Intel graphics card, or an AMD graphics card and you have the latest driver for the card installed, you will get the choice to enable GPU encoding. This will allow you to enjoy speeds of up to 6 times faster with the H.264 output format. This is only available when converting non-protected video files. (For common videos and DVD’s.)
