Jaksta Converter's main window includes a drop-down menu at the top-left. Here you'll find many different conversion options that are pre-set for you. The conversion settings are sorted by both file format and device manufactuer so that you can quickly and easily find the one that is right for you.
You have full control over the preset conversion settings and can create, delete and modify them as you wish. However as new devices and formats are released, we update preset conversion settings on our servers and these are automatically downloaded when you start the application.
To create, delete or edit existing present conversion settings, see the Conversion Presets section below.
