There is no doubt that HD video formats are very popular nowadays (hell, there are entire torrent trackers dedicated to HD content). Here is a nice software for those who work with High definition videos regularly. HD Video Converter is a conversion app from Xilisoft (who make quite a lot of file converters btw) which supports converting between HD video formats, converting HD video to standard definition (SD) video, converting between general video formats such as WMV, MP4, DivX and even converting between several different audio formats. Like most other Xilisoft apps, HD Video Converter has a simple user interface and even novice users should be able to use it without issues. From what little experience I had with the software (this version is quite new), conversion speeds also seemed to be pretty good.

    Just to clarify, SD actually means Standard Definition.
