I have a Sony DV camcorder and I like recording videos very much. I am often frustrated that there are so few devices that support the videos I record with my DV. Recently, I came across a software tool that helped me out. It not only allows me to capture videos from my DV, but also can help me convert the captured videos to a lot of common video formats such as AVI, MP4, WMV, 3GP, FLV.

Here, I'd like to show you how to convert video captured from DV camcorder to standard video so as to play the video on PC, TV, mobile players such as iPod, iPhone, Zune, PSP and even upload the video to share online (YouTube).

The software you will need is:

Clone2Go DVD Ripper, with which you can
    Rip DVD to video/audio,
    Convert video to video/audio (AVI, WMV, ASF, 3GP, RM, RMVB, FLV, MKV, AVS, etc),
    Download YouTube/Google videos,
    Capture video from DV camcorder.
