Hi guys!
My pleasure to give you my suggestions.
According to my own experience using video converters, I am convinced that there is video sofware called Pavtube HD video Converter powerful in converting HD video. I used it and found it supports plenty of video and audio formats such as MP4, M4V, MKV, MPG. MOV, FLV, etc.
Comparing with other converters, I prefer Pavtube one because of its fast conversion speed and its pretty good output video and audio whcih satisfy me.It is said that this software applies unique audio and video sync technology which can guarantee the audio and video match.
you can check out it here

Any software that carries the "Vista" or "Windows 7" logo on it's site is supposed to be 32-bit and 64-bit compatible. That is, according to Microsoft. Many websites use those logos at liberty without asking Microsoft, and do not know what the stipulations are. It has been my experience that some developers will say their software is 32-bit specifically (just assume they do so for a reason, and do yourself a big favor), and I can install it on my Vista 64-bit drive, or my Windows 7 64-bit drive, and it will run trouble and error free on either or both of my systems.

I have also installed specific software which I have purchased that carried the Vista and Windows 7 logo from Microsoft, and the developer said they were designed for Windows Vista 32-bit and Windows 7 32-bit, and since I had been using them since I had XP Pro SP 3 32-bit I was not eager to let go of one of my favorite apps, and installed the same software on my new Vista 64-bit system. Upon doing so it messed it up so bad the only way to recover the Operating System was to use the Factory Recovery Image and thankfully it was able to fix my system without totally formatting the drive and reinstalling Vista x64 from scratch. I was not so ready to try this on my more recent installation of 7 x64 Ultimate, recovery images, and installation DVD or not, I run such a personally configured system putting it back together the way it exists now, unmolested and running smoothly, even with carefully saved images is something I don't trust to be an easy and swift process.

I would install stated 32Bit software on your system at your own risk. Yeah, I did so in the past and the offending application ran at first smoothly. Then there was a specific task I wanted to perform which did severe damage to the files in C:/Windows/System/ where a lot of important files are, and thank goodness that HP had a decent recovery option that was halfway between Microsoft's System Restore which was totally inadequate, and formatting the drive to restore the factory image, which would have made me lose all the settings I didn't back up, which I should have backed up, although I did back up important files, pictures, videos, etc. I am disabled and am saving up money for Acronis, working with my LaCie 1Tb Firewire/USB2.0/eSATA external hard drive, with their CD or DVD and online backup to save everything, that is the backup option I think will work best for me. Just saying . . . experimenting with 32-bit software on a 64-bit system may do more serious damage than simply "not work" properly. I don't advise that people do so only based on my own bad experiences having my operating system rendered totally unusable by a 32 bit application gone rogue.

After I moved the afplayerdrm.ini file to the installation folder and restarted the application it opened as "Video Converter for Any Flv Player (Evaluation Version). Is it an EV version, is something amiss,or, am I missing something?

#1

The Bad
* Needs the ability to be able to publish directly to a website, such as via FTP.
* Integration of the built-in video converter and the web video generator can be improved.

Please give some thought as to your suggestions for practical changes that a developer needs to make to solve your criticisms. There may be some developers that agree with you. However, I do not.

First point: Few programs, very few, have a dedicated FTP module. It is not needed. Anyone that has a website has at least one (more likely two to three) FTP clients on their computer. If every program came with its own FTP client a developer's hard disk would accumulate a lot of extraneous files in the form of FTP clients.

2: "Beauty in the eye of the beholder." You always criticize a developer's user interface. That being the case, perhaps you should define the type of user interface that you prefer so all of the GOTD developers could incorporate your suggestion. As it is you give them no model to follow.

Beauty in my eye is small, fast, and simple.

Thanks,Consuella.

That is in fact what I did but it failed to work/accept/register.

I've asked the Developer. Probably not hear back, in which case, I'll manage without it.

Thank you for reply.

OK, you Goober's. most all 32 bit software will work just fine on a 64 bit machine. windows has a 32 bit emulator called wow64. I am using this software on a windows 7 64 bit dual-core AMD machine and it runs just fine. windows will install it automatically to the program files(x86) folder. you do have to go there to put the ini file in. also it is quite useful I think. You can't go wrong with free. why complain when you get it free?

#22 ****** Johnny ****** Most software developers usually mention what they have tested on, that doesn't mean (especially with Win64) that it won't run on an x64 OS. Try it, it won't crash your system. Just uninstall if it doesn't work.

Don't try to be funny :),

In case anyone has trouble copying the included afplayerdrm.ini file into the program's installation folder, note that you can also register the program by copying and pasting the registration info from that file into the program's registration dialog. (The "Name" is Giveawayoftheday and the "Code" is the long hexadecimal-number-with-dashes after the comma.)

Hi all!!


Yes today's giveaway is a nice SW that does what it claims pretty well!!

So I give it a THUMBS UP for its features & performance but a THUMBS DOWN for its usefulness!!

Why??

Simply because CSM platforms, such as Wordpress, already offer great plugin allowing you to embed a video on your website (this one for instance is pretty good: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/flv-embed/), not to mention that most of website owners out there use third party hosting websites such as YOUTUBE to host their video in order to save bandwidth on their own website or blogs.

How much bandwidth does this tool eat more compared to a third party hosting such as YOUTUBE??

I guess a lot....

Does anybody know it?


Cheers from Italy!

Biggest disadvantages I find, are:

- no drag'n drop support

- no option to change default paths for 'open' and 'save'

- the program demands .flv as output format. I don't see why that is! I know little about webdesign, but avi, mpg, wmv, mov and so on can be 'streaming' as well, not?

OK, flv is great in compression but I'd like to put up the original if I want to.

Contradictorily to what Ashraf writes, the output is directed to disk. Maybe he means there should be an ftp client included.
I don't agree with that, BTW. I prefer a dedicated FTP app.

I managed to install and run the programme. I converted a short video clip to flv using the built in converter. I then published the output to a folder on my computer which I then published to the web. When I go to the resultant page on the web, the player appears, the first image (thumbnail) appears within the player but it does not play. Clicking to play just causes the player screen to go black and so far I cannot get past this.

Evaluation: looks great, works well, almost intuitive to use and, if I can get the last bit to work, I would recommend it.

Go to Start, click Computer, double-click C drive, double-click Program Files, and there you will find your SocuSoftWebVideoPlayer. Now move the afplayerdrm.ini to this folder and register the program.

it comes with 2 applications...video player and video converter...after you have already dragged the file that it said to over to the folder of all the stuff for the program you have to activate/register by opening up the help tab and click register and the code will automatically come up and all you have to do is click register and BINGO!!! you have just saved $50 :)

First of all i went through making a simple video player... Here are some of the things i didnt like:

1. Cannot drag and drop videos to add them
2. Not enough themes for a software that costs $49.95
3. The themes are very dull/non professional
4. The themes are too glossy and either looks like plastic or balloons
5. didntlet me upload to a ftp server
6. It created so many files in the output directory
7. Where on earth is the Documentation?

#11, Patrick:

Yes, you can create a local website and then publish it to a CD/DVD. You have to make sure that all components (e.g. the actual FLV video, etc.) are on the CD/DVD. Just make sure all your links are correct and not referring to a hard drive location or an online URL (unless you want them to be online when they look at your CD).

Video in a blog is just code, same as in a website. The best way for both is to use Flash container and FLV.

On a CD/DVD you could actually just insert WMV, AVI, MOV format or whatever. The files would be bigger but higher quality. Use the embed command. With a CD/DVD you don't have to shrink it down because of bandwidth and slow download time. On the CD it's all right there at your fingertips. I often put clients' websites on CD/DVD, so I'm somewhat familiar with the process.

No problem with the lack of FTP facility. I use CoreFTP LE which is free and very easy to use!

If you are savvy and adept enough to have your own web site, you can also use a program like Dreamweaver to send a video file to your website directory folder and to include code to run the FLV video. I often use Notepad and FTP for small quick changes!

Hi,

I do not have my own website nor am I a sitedeveloper. On first sight this software would be of no use to me. However, I have a few questions on its possible use:

1- say that, using some webpage creator program (a HTML editor e.g.), I construct a dedicated page/site for offline use only, would Web Video Player allow me to integrate video in it? A journalism student friend of mine has been proposed by one of his lecturerers to bring together his assigments in the form of a webpage/site for the sake of transportability. I think he had in mind the construction of a webpage/site for offline use and storage on DVD/USB-stick.

2- would this program be of any use for inserting video in a blog? Perhaps this is a really silly question, but I happen to know absolutely nothing about blogs and blogging :( I'm rather inquisitive though... Who knows what the future brings?

Can anybody advize me here?
Depending on your replies, I may decide to install Web Video Player or pass.

Many thanks,
Patrick.

PS: Of course I would have to learn to develop webpages/sites. Any suggestions about (free) development tools and tutorials? This may perhaps save me hour of googling etc. Thanks again!

Installed on Windows 7 x64 and it works fine.
You can fully customize the video player like auto-replay, size off video player, colors and so on.
Converting from avi to flv also no problems.

Thanks very much for this one GAOTD.

seems to have installed in Win 7 just fine.

Need to register by moving the .ini file into the Sucosoft folder.

There is a name/password in that file that can probably be pasted in as well.

Looks great, but I can't help but call the company "Suckosoft"
May not have been the best choice for a name.

The Good
* Straightforward and very easy to use.
* Allows users to select from many different video "frames".
* Organizes published videos in a fairly clean manner making it easy to transfer onto a website/server when needed.
* Has a built-in video converter that can convert non-FLV videos to FLV videos which are then usable with the web video generator.

The Bad
* Needs the ability to be able to publish directly to a website, such as via FTP.
* Integration of the built-in video converter and the web video generator can be improved.
