Cái tên cũng đã nói lên nhiều điều về chương trình này rồi. Mình dùng TVC standard version 3.11 để convert các video clips hoặc các bài giảng của trường mà không tìm được trên iTunes, hoặc các files có định dạng flv download từ Youtube về, rồi tống vào iPod. Trên đường đi làm hoặc về nhà, lúc ngồi trên tàu mở ra xem, vừa đỡ buồn vừa tranh thủ học được tí nào hay tí đấy.

TVC convert được gần như tất tần tật các format. Download the trial version here. Có điều là với bản trial này thì sau khi convert xong, TVC sẽ đóng dấu logo và địa chỉ của công ty lên video của bạn. Trông thật mất thẩm mỹ và hơi khó chịu 😛 . Nếu muốn video của bạn ngon lành thì download file reg này về. Lưu ý là chỉ có tác dụng với TVC version 3.11 thôi nhé!
