Default MediaEspresso 6 Fits Videos For All Occasions

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"As a universal converter, MediaEspresso converts video, image or music files that you can enjoy on the device or social platform of your choice. Regardless of format support, or conversion processes, MediaEspresso makes your life easier and your viewing experience unique!"</em></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data=";ap=&fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value=";ap=&fmt=18" /></object></p><p>Personally, I would like to have just a single copy of each video I own and be able to watch it across all the many devices I have.&nbsp; While more video players are supporting a wider range of codecs, it just is not practical to have a multi-gigabyte video in 1080p sitting on your SD card to be played back on a tiny phone screen.&nbsp; Video converters, like CyberLink's MediaEspresso, fill that need where it does not make sense to have one video rule them all.&nbsp; What I find handy about MediaEspresso is that it supports both Nvidia's CUDA and ATI's Stream.&nbsp; While CPUs can be blisteringly fast these days, GPUs can handle multimedia transcoding far quicker.&nbsp; I have always tried to stay away from transcoding as it used take more time to transcode a video than it would for BP to cap an oil spill.&nbsp; I have not tested how fast MediaEspresso can transcode a 2 hour movie, but it does sound like if you have a few moments before that weekend trip, you can quickly convert your videos and stash them on your PMP without much hassle.</p>
