Originally posted by: black_zion Read what that says, it says "when a media file is dragged and dropped onto a portable media player", I haven't seen a stand alone AVIVO converter in ages. However, Windows Live Movie Maker is GPU assisted, as well as able to use all CPU cores and has many more options than the AVIVO converter ever did.
Not at all accurate... from their CURRENT man page on video conversion functionality - clearly states it has such functionality:
Converting Videos Using AMD Video Converter
Use AMD Video Converter to convert video files on your computer into a format more suitable for video editing or viewing on a portable media player.
Note: AMD Video Converter is available only if the AVIVO software component was selected during AMD software and driver installation.
In either Standard View or Advanced View, click Video > AMD Video Converter.
In the AMD Video Converter page, click the Start Video Converter button. The AMD Video Converter wizard opens, prompting you to select the desired input file, output folder, file format, and other criteria.
When prompted by Step 1 of the wizard, specify the following:
Input File-The file to be converted. If needed, click Clear to reset your file selection, or Select Source to browse for another file on your computer. You can also select Show the File Name Only to show only the file name component of the selected file.
Properties for the selected file are automatically listed on the page.
Output Folder-The folder to contain the converted file. If needed, click Browse to select another file location. You can also select Generate Auto-Numbered Files to automatically and sequentially append numbers to the names of output files for better file organization.
When prompted by Step 2 of the wizard, specify the following:
Output Video Format-The desired output file format. For more information, see AMD Video Converter Formats.
Output Quality-The video quality of the output file. Output quality may affect the file size of the output file.
Output File-The name of the output file.
The properties for the input and output files are listed on the page and are automatically updated based on output quality.
A progress dialog appears, indicating that the video conversion has begun. If needed, click Cancel to stop the conversion. In the confirmation dialog that appears, click Yes to exit the wizard, or No to continue with the conversion.
Once the conversion has successfully been completed, the wizard updates to show the details of the output file.
If desired, click Open Folder to view the contents of the output folder, or Play File to view video playback of the output file.
Click Exit to close the wizard.
The input file is converted according to the specified file format and output file name.
Tip: For information on transferring video to and from a portable device, see the documentation for the device.
