Video work is dealing with a lot of data, and you might involve a CRANKY CODEC so not one handles it all.

Go with what works!

HANDBRAKE and SUPER (video converter). Anything spammed here is usually bad.

no one will be the best.

you can't find which is the best, you have said that, everyone has his own thoughts. and most of them has been used to use a converter. I think there won't be a best, or other company will close down, they has their own advantages. and people has his own habit.
like someone like handbrake, some like format factory, and maybe others like any video converter, there are so many converters here. such as wondershare, isky, leawo, moyea, pavtube, xilisoft.etc.
so don't mention the best, just find the suitable one

Yes, No best one, just suitable one.

I totally agree with ken_lea.
Someone like free handbrake, other like wondershare or xilisoft.
and I personally use aimersoft video converter.

These converters are much similar and allows you to try it first, so you can just search "video converter" on Google, and pick up one from the long list for a try, and then you will know whic is most suitable for you.

Video Vault Converter Software
Mar 13, 2011 8:10AM PDT

I purchased the Video Vault video converter program back in 2006 and have been extremely happy with it. I just installed a new HD in my PC and loaded the program. Unfortuantely when I try to run it I am asked to register to activate it. I have my username and password but it appears the company, Diversified Multimedia, does not exist any more. Does anyone know how to contact the company or bypass this process? I paid for this program so should be able to use it! Thank you.
