Movies on the Run: Movie2MemCard Reviewed
Posted by Anthony Caruana in "SOFTWARE" @ 10:00 AM
Product Category: Video Encoding Software
Where to Buy: Download from Handango (affiliate link)
Price: $15.00 USD
System Requirements: This program will work on Windows 9x or better (I tested with Windows XP Professional) and requires 10 MB of disk space. You'll also need to install the Windows Media Encoder (free download from Microsoft). You'll need a Pocket PC running Pocket PC 2002 or Windows Mobile 2003 to play Windows media encoded files or a Pocket PC running a DiVX player like PocketMVP if you use DiVX encoding. The encoding process requires that you have twice the original movie size in free disk space for the conversion/encoding.
- Easy to use;
- Broad support for different codecs;
- DiVX support.
- No DVD ripping support;
- Lack of progress bars during some encoding.
Movie2MemCard does a good job of encoding files for use on a Pocket PC. Its beauty is that it takes a reasonably complex process and consolidates it down to a few, easy to follow steps, but balances this by providing you with enough easy to understand configuration options.
