Free Update to Nero 12 Expands Mobile Device Support for Video Converting

Filed under: Industry News,Tech PR |


I like Nero, it’s pretty much the only software of this kind I use on my computers. I’ve used it for years, as far back as I can remember really. It’s just some good stuff…


Nero has released a new version of its popular Nero 12 and Nero 12 Platinum multimedia suites, giving its video enthusiast customers even more performance and value.

“Nero 12.5 makes our best multimedia suite even better,” said Nero Chief Product Officer Martin Stein. “If you enjoy watching videos in the best possible quality at home or on the go, or if you love to create your own video productions, this update is a must-have.”

Nero Recode Gets Even Smarter

The video converting application Nero Recode gets one of the most significant enhancements in this new version of the Nero suite.

Nero Recode already set the standard for making it easy and fast to rip and convert your videos to watch on other devices. The update now includes pre-configured device profiles for the latest generation tablets and smartphones, including the iPad Mini, iPad with Retina Display, iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5G, iPod Nano 7G, Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro tablets, Windows 8 Phone and Kindle Fire HD.

Usability improvements are also noticeable. The new Job2Device feature groups video converting jobs by target device. This makes it easier to see the status of all the videos that are being converted for a particular device, such as a Kindle Fire HD or iPhone 5.

Nero Recode also now automatically detects a computer’s GPGPU hardware and uses it by default to finish video converting jobs four to eight times faster.

Customizable Video Editing Effects

Enhancements to the Nero Video editing software in Nero 12.5 give video hobbyists even more ways to create projects that will impress their friends and family.

Nero Video already offers hundreds of video effects and themes, including new video stabilization and vintage-style film effects in the Nero 12 Platinum edition. Now Nero Film Effects and video stabilization settings in Nero Video can be tweaked and saved as drag-and-drop templates to be used again in future projects.

Music is an important component of any video project and Nero Video now provides even more ways to work with it.

The application can automatically match the music duration to the duration of the project, including photos and video clips. When appropriate, this feature uses intelligent looping and auto fades to fill gaps in the music track to make the project and music match perfectly. It also works in reverse, matching the duration of a photo slideshow to whatever music has been selected.

The overall performance of Nero Video was also improved to make editing and exporting faster. It now uses memory more efficiently to allow for longer and more involved projects. It also boosts the viewing and editing experience for HD formats such as AVCHD 2.0.
