Why use DVD Catalyst 4?
iPhones, Zunes, Smartphones lack a DVD drive, so to be able to put a movie on these devices, a DVD needs to be changed into something that will work with them. You can buy/rent movie files from Apple's iTunes store, but these only work with iPod and iPhone devices. If you own a Zune, a PSP or anything else, you can not use iTunes to get your movies. While some companies do offer video downloads one way or another, they usually require you to pay for movies you probably already own on DVD anyway.
This is where DVD Catalyst 4 comes in. DVD Catalyst 4 transforms your DVD movies and TV shows into video files that you can use with your device. By installing DVD Catalyst 4 on your computer, you can convert your own DVD collection (as well as video files you might already have) into something that will play on your Blackberry, PocketPC etc. No need to pay for the movies again, or worry about watching them within a day before they expire.
DVD Catalyst 4 converts your DVDs (original, iso and folders) as well as all common video files, including MKV, MPG, VOB, MP4, AVI, DIVX, XVID and more, without the need to install additional software.
Why use DVD Catalyst Free?
There are many free solutions available, but they either require you to follow a lengthy, multi-step guide for each individual conversion, or require you to sign up for a mailing list or install adware. DVD Catalyst Free is a clean and simple 1-click solution to convert your DVDs and video files so they can be played on your particular phone or media player device.
DVD Catalyst Free is super easy to use, but as a result it does not offer any additional features that enhance your portable viewing experience. The video quality is locked to provide a reasonable quality at an acceptable file size. DVD Catalyst Free also does not have any black-border removal options that assist in making your movies full-screen. Lastly, DVD Catalyst Free converts DVDs a bit slower than DVD Catalyst 4 and DVD Catalyst Free Plus.
Note: DVD Catalyst Free is not a trial version of DVD Catalyst 4
