Comments on Extra Video Creator

The Good
* Fairly straightforward in terms of how to use.
* Can join/convert (input and output) AVI, MPEG, WMV, MOV, and RM videos.
* Works fairly quickly.
* Gives you the ability to select and use any codec on your computer for AVI and MOV outputs.
* You can configure AVI codecs.

The Bad
* Has output location set to D:/ by default for some reason.
* Definitely could give more user-customization ability in terms of output video settings.
* In most cases, you must manually type in video size if you want to change it from the default.
* Unable to manually customize output video size for WMV outputs.
* Tries to change Internet Explorer's homepage during installation.
* Lacking support for some popular video formats.
* The Help file is more of an advertisement for the product than it is help for the user.
* Program window is not resizable.

Did not run on Vista Ultimate. Just crashed.

Worse, it reset my IE8 and the runonce that normally accompanies a new IE8 install ran - though I've had IE8 installed for several months now!

This is the last straw. I don't know what is going on with the offers here but something is screwy. I'm not going to bother to come here and try the so called "freebies" anymore. I don't like my computer getting messed with like has happened several times recently by GAOTD offerings.

Thanks for the useful reviews and alternatives, Ashraf; I always read them, and appreciate the time you put into them. I've had mixed luck with FormatFactory,though. It does not read a lot of the copy protected disks I own, PLUS, I cannot figure out a way to overcome an incompatibility with my Archos 605 player. FormatFactory appparently only uses a newer WMV8/9 format (sometimes apparently also referred to as WMV2) that the Archos/Windows Media Player file management software rejects. Loading that Archos -- which is a nice product otherwise -- has become a tedious journey coupling multiple free or paid software tools and many, many hours of conversions between formats. Ugly, especially after DVDNextCopy and AVSVideoTools went to a 1- or 2-year support fee instead of lifetime free updates.

Maybe Extra Video Player will be helpful, though I've still got to deal with the DVD-to-media file step. THANKS GOTD!
