ASUSTOR releases new LooksGood app with media converter

ASUSTOR recently announced the release of a new version of its multimedia player app LooksGood that adds Media Converter to its 5 and 7 series devices. The new Media Converter uses background file conversions to make non-supported codecs playable on mobile devices or videos that are unable to play them natively.

Building upon the system’s ability to convert files, ASUSTOR also introduced the Smart Conversion Folder feature. Here, files placed in the Smart Conversion Folder will be automatically analyzed and converted based on system load. It allows the system to convert only during the specified time periods for better system resource allocation.

Saving the best for last, ASUSTOR also introduced Hyper-Transcoding, which is an exclusive technology developed by ASUSTOR. It enabled the use of Intel CPU hardware acceleration to convert video files seems faster. This technology is said to be able to reduce the normal conversion time by at least 10x.
