iFlicks 2 offers a selection of presets to convert videos. In most cases, just using the iTunes compatible preset is sufficient and for most HD Video material the fastest option.


iTunes compatible

All video content is made compatible with iTunes the fastest way possible. Most H.264 are kept as they are and copied to the new file without quality loss. All other video formats are encoded at the original resolution.

Stereo audio tracks are encoded to AAC if required, For surround tracks one surround AC-3  and one Stereo AAC track is created for best compatibility.

Videos converted with the preset will be compatible with iTunes, but are playable on most recent Apple Devices as well (depends on the exact input video content). In case a file is not compatible, please use an appropriate preset instead.


Video content is encoded at a resolution up to 720 x 576 and all audio content is reduced to Stereo. This preset allows for compatibility with a wide range of devices and is great for encoding SD video material at a decent speed.
