always thanks GOTD for continuously bringing us time-limited free programs, so nice. For video converters, however, I still stick to real freeware such as Handbrake and Winx free video converter (here: http://www.winxdvd.com/video-converter/ ). Just enjoy.

I tried it on a corrupt video file that had bits missing. It loaded in the file but the picture stops when it gets to the missing part of the video instead of removing the missing videop bit.
At least I can load the corrupt file and convert it, I could try removing the bad bits using a video editor.

I'm not understanding the difference between this and the AnySoft Platinum giveaway we just had last week? I will say that the previous version of the Aieesoft total converter I had (probably 7.1.8 as others have mentioned) struggled with some conversions that the AnySoft doesn't ... but they both seem to be made by the same bottom-line company (even though the branding is different)?

They no longer include an option to disable automatic updates, or for that matter any option at all- regarding updates.
This makes me wonder: how long will this software work, and when will it stop working?

Therefore, I think, that those who have a little older version of this software allowing you to disable automatic updates, they should keep it.

Also, I do not like the fact that the installer doesn't offer the ability to select the place where one would like to install the program. In addition to that, during the installation process, you are being forced to blindly press the install button, and trust that everything will be O.K. after you do that. Hope it is!



Now, a few words about what I like about this program:


-a vast array of available formats,
-a very nice interface,
-the ability to convert audio files to several formats(including FLAC, which produces lossless files half the size of wav).

After further testing I might provide some more details.

Thank you to Aiseesoft and GOTD Team for providing me/us with the opportunity to test this software.

Regards,

Actually, as I have found out, one can choose the installation folder, but it is done in an unconventional way.

Namely, in order to do so, first you need to press a little arrow pointing down at the bottom of the window, and only then you can choose your preferred location of the installation. After having done this, press the Install button to continue with the installation.

Cheers,

You can fix the problem of not being able to disable "automatic updates" very easily.
Simply block the program in your firewall.

I cannot get this to install on a Win8.1 64bit system. The setup.exe runs very fast and goes immediately to the vendor's website and shows the program activated, but it never installed it. In Soft Organizer the app name shows as "AppCrash_setup_tmp_" with a foot-long number. I have re-downloaded and tried this several times with same results, never had a problem like this before with GOTD software.

1)Do any other video converters allow frame by frame backwards during editing?

2)Do any other video converters allow subtitles to be optional in the converted file, rather than the choice of imposing them or ignoring them, which is all this, and many others offer.
In order to have subtitles as a possibility, when required, (which is how I and I'd imagine many others use subtitles) you would have to make two copies!

3)While I'm here, thanks for all the offers over the years. Some of them are very good (albeit that some of them, as referenced in previous comments, are very similar!

You missed the mark on this one. I rarely advise anyone to buy a video converter because of freebies, but being able to get this one for free is a no brainer. GRAB THIS WHILE YOU CAN!

You forgot to mention two of the most notable free converters for video and audio. They're notable because if you happen to be a control freak, they offer the most complete management of your settings and a plethora of advanced options (although at the expense of being less noob-friendly). Both have also been out for many years, and have duly earned their solid reputations. Those would be:

Everything seemed to work fine, EXCEPT, the program doesn't detect my AMD APP video drivers. Brand new R7 250X card. APP drivers are part of the install bundle.
Either the drivers are too new, or it's a software glitch. I was hoping to check out the increase in processing power with my new GPU. *sigh*
I suppose if that is all that is wrong, I still can't complain too loudly for a decent video converter.

Installed clean and works great except for one thing: the subtitle function does NOT seem to be working. The option seems to be there but, it just doesn't seem to work. Have tried several srt's and nada. Oh well, at least it's good for croping.

It would be nice if I didn't have to convert a file twice just for the subtitles but, I guess for free, it's not too bad. Wouldn't pay for it until they got that fixed imo however.

This is my go to video converter. It's worked perfectly for me. I rip the DVD's to show on my iPad using MKV Maker and then covert to the MP4 format using this tool. It's never burped or otherwise given any but perfect performance.

My installed version is 7.1.50 where this is 7.1.52. I will keep mine as I see no reason to install / uninstall for such a minor upgrade. The date of my current install is 15/11/14 so it's still only about 1.5 months old.

If you need a video converter, I can recommend this one easily.

Would it possible for some folks to appreciate that posting "Great! Thanks for the download!" -- whether or not such sentiment is accompanied by an embarrassing religious benediction -- doesn't actually help anyone? All who use GOTD are grateful to GOTD for (a) pioneeering the software giveaway sector and (b) facilitating the product review thread -- otherwise they wouldn't be GOTD users, would they?

What actually helps other GOTDers is not the revelation that you've just reformatted your computer and today's offer (whatever it is) is amazingly well-timed (funny, how frequently people on here post comments testifying to such coincidences) but contributions such as today's from Adif, Ric, Karl, Keya23 and Klein Fritzchen.

As to this giveaway: if you don't already have a converter, then acquire this. There's so little to choose between conversion offerings that taking advantage of Aiseesoft's kindness is a no-brainer, albeit if you're expecting software of this nature to be competent at anything else, then see Klein Fritzchen's helpful post. For myself, I never expect too much, hence why, when it comes to quick, simple and easy editing, I stick with the irreplaceable freeware from those lovely folks over at Moo0:

http://www.moo0.com/

I'd suggest everyone else do the same: Moo0's free Video Cutter is the perfect adjunct to any video converter software from any developer.

Can this program handle anamorphic videos?

I try to convert an anamorphic 720 x 576 16:9 MPG (PAL DVD standard) to a non anamorphic 704 x 396 (= 16:9) MP4 but don't know how.

Frame by frame cutting is difficult since you can't go back frame by frame, only forward.

Reply   |   Comment by Klein Fritzchen  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Hello Klein Fritzchen (fellow german?)

Seems as if the programmer of all these converters are not aware of anamorphic video, although these play a role in broadcast even in todays HD.

In fact it makes no sense to provide fixed resolutions to the user (e.g. 1920x1080). Instead the width alone AND the ability to read the anamorphic flag of a source video would result in a proper output video.

Because most converters fail to handle anamorphic video I still use the good old Auto Gordian Knot (AutoGK) of 2009 to convert broadcasted videos. AutoGK is a DivX/XviD converter (actually a Script-GUI, but codec and tools are inside the installation package).

http://www.videohelp.com/tools/AutoGK

I tried out newer codecs and compared them to XviD and guess what... at least for low resolutions XviD is almost as good as h264 or h265. Most media players can deal with XviD's MP4 - so give it a try.

The Aiseesoft product has never been strong on precise control of aspect ratio and resolution. I certainly use it for quick format conversion, but if I need to do something more difficult, it's often better to go back to the old freeware standby VirtualDub, which now fully supports mp4 format with plugins.

Reply   |   Comment by DVMarsh  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Working with the old version [not plat.]...

The source being anamorphic shouldn't matter in this case -- you're taking the original frame & resizing to an absolute 704 x 396. Anamorphic only comes into play when you've got a player which needs to know to display the frames at something other than the original size.

To accomplish that you need to select a template in the desired format, click next to the size, & type in your new, desired value, e.g. selecting 704 x 576, I delete the 5 & 7 inserting 3 & 9, getting 704 x 396. Now I make any other settings, & save that template under a new name. Select that template you just made in the Profile drop down menu.

Actually, if you download a fair amount of video, "unsupported file type" is not all that uncommon. And this would be for playing back on a device like the WD Live -- IMO the most capable of such streaming box / players on the market. Trying to convert the video file format to a different one, using one of these software converter products (and I have several of them) has not been especially successful. When it does work, there is likely to be a degradation in picture quality, &/or some artifacts. My reliable, 'Go To' solution has become to convert the troublesome material into DVD standard format (which happens to be MPEG), using either AVStoDVD or ConvertXtoDVD, whichever happens to do a particular job better. The former is free, the latter is a paid program. The resulting DVD structure output by these programs can be copied to a portable hard drive and then played by the same WD Live that had rejected the original source file. This sounds more involved than it really is: both programs have a pretty shallow learning curve. I can't recall a case where this failed to work. If something has been rendered into the standard DVD format, it MUST play. Of course, if the source file had a higher-than-DVD resolution, the result will be down-converted, but it can still look quite good. That would be **on your TV**; on your computer, almost anything can be played on a software player like VLC, without the need for conversion.

The other day I had another case like this. The source was a French, PAL .AVI. (To discover *what kind of video* is actually inside the general AVI container, you would need to use MediaInfo, also free.) It also needed the merging of subtitles from a subtitles file -- another factor in favor of the programs I'm mentioning. A fairly recent version of AVStoDVD converted it so that it would play, but there were annoying motion artifacts. So I tried it with a few years old version of ConvertXtoDVD that I happened to have on that computer, and the video also played just fine, but this time without the artifacts. What this video hobbyist is telling you is that it's quite beneficial to have a bunch of options in your toolkit. And that would likely include some of these GAotD freebies, like Wonderfox and this AiseeSoft one today.

One other thing I always have to ask (and not just for this category of program) is whether this is from one of those Chinese companies that markets the same products under 20 different names. If it installs any of that "phone home" junk like ASHelper or WSHelper, that would also lead me to a big thumbs down.

Aiseesoft video conversion products tend to be the fastest out there and with a reasonable choice of output options, although no full control of parameters.

Multi core CPU and Cuda & AMD App GPU processing aid things further.

Shame they have not added Intel Quicksync as this would probably make it one of the best paid for apps out there in this very crowded market.

I do think that like other vendors, they have too many products that cross over each other and could do with more consolidation into one or two.

Reply   |   Comment by PhilS  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+19)

I don't see why Aiseesoft couldn't easily add support for Intel Quicksync, since we know that this converter and all its sister products actually depend on the capabilities of open-source software like ffmpeg. Another past GoTD called Pavtube ByteCopy that's virtually identical to the Aiseesoft product does support Intel Quicksync, and I keep it on my system for that reason. But there is a minor drawback: video quality is slightly reduced when you use the Intel hardware acceleration, since part of their acceleration involves a few approximations in the calculations.

Reply   |   Comment by DVMarsh  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Quick Sync isn't exploited nearly enough IMHO, but that's another story. You *might* look into ffdshow &/or LAVFilters, if only as ways to use Quick Sync decoding your source video, which can speed things up BTW. You will however need another app for the (re)encoding part as everything in today's video converter is pretty much self-contained -- it doesn't talk to the other video stuff you have installed.

That said, some feel that the future is OpenCL, rather than any proprietary speedups. Intel graphics drivers [for GPUs contained in some of their CPUs] include OpenCL. Allegedly win10 will also allow greater cooperation between a graphics card's OCL & OCL using the CPU's GPU. Again however that's irrelevant to today's GOTD.

Does that mean it's a waste of time to try Aiseesoft's Video Converter? Not really. While individual mileage will vary, what's important is the result & how long it took to get that result. When it comes to speed today's GOTD may be as fast as anything else on your hardware, regardless price, & the quality should be comparable.

I have the Aiseesoft HD Video Converter from a previous giveaway and have no reason to assume that this incarnation is significantly different in any meaningful way. I also have GAOTD offerings from Tipard, Wonderfox and Leawo, all of which seem to have more-or-less identical functionality and, indeed, GUIs. Some just convert, others rip and convert - depending on which version you happen to have...

So. Our modest 27" television that isn't smart at all is hooked up to a Raspberry Pi running XBMC that connects to our 3TB NAS wirelessly. I use software like this (or any other just like it) to rip DVDs and convert just the main movie into red/green anaglyph 3-D (in .avi)then put them on the NAS.

We bought five or six pairs of 50's-style 3-D glasses for a few bucks on line and started converting a few movies into 3-D...

And you know what? they're okay - it can be quite fun snuggling up on the sofa with our silly glasses on and a bowl of popcorn. conversion takes AGES on my small netbook so I let it run while we're in bed and watching Full Metal Jacket in red/green with a glass of wine and a spliff is well worth the effort that it takes to master the settings and work out which format is compatible with your television...

So while this software won't rip anything it will probably allow you to convert between formats with some nice added frills (which most converters offered here also have)that some alternatives won't. Format Factory, which I have been using for years doesn't do 3-D or let you choose the output tailored to a specific device, and neither does Video-to-Video (thanks for that @ Giovanni, by the way.

My advice for potential downloaders is therefore this: this software works flawlessly if you already have a video file that you want to convert to another format. If however, you want to rip a DVD movie to the same format just wait a couple of weeks and you will inevitably find a giveaway that does exactly that. One that will look almost identical to this.

But unless you specifically want to play with 3-D or convert your video to a Zune (lol) then I have no reason to suppose that this software is any more or less useful than Format Factory or Video-to-Video.

No up or down vote for this giveaway because I shan't be downloading it.

Yeah, I'm one of those dinosaurs who still uses his Zune. Yes, it is pretty much extinct, and has a bizarre software, but still has a great sound and I can load plenty of media on its 120gb.

And, yes, I do use software like today's offering and Format Factory to convert files for my Zune (and my iPods). There are a bunch available, these two seem to be the ones I use most. Thanks GOTD for the update.

Reply   |   Comment by John  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

I'm replying mainly because you mentioned Format Factory Keya23...

Video software can get complicated, so you have lots of developers put video-related apps together using an assortment of free & open source code &/or programs. That's understandable since it would seem a superhuman effort to write all of that code yourself, & why reinvent the wheel in any case.

Software from the folks at Aiseesoft [& many other similar companies] generally use ffmpeg & keep everything confined to their apps themselves -- while the software isn't portable, it's usually very close to that. Format Factory [& a good many others] in my experience follow a very different line or philosophy.

Rather than use the code or individual files they'll use complete 3rd party apps, or maybe only install a portion of them, &/or maybe install them in non-standard ways. This can cause problems with Windows, & there are pretty decent odds it'll mess with other video stuff you have installed. If/when that happens, *if* you can fix things without a Windows reinstall, it can take days, or even weeks.

Long story short, if you use Format Factory [&/or similar] & have no problems, Great. If someone installs Format Factory or similar & has no problems, Wonderful. I would however humbly suggest that anyone thinking about installing those apps do whatever they need to do to back everything up so they can put things back to right in case they don't have such a positive experience.

So while this software won’t rip anything it will probably allow you to convert between formats with some nice added frills (which most converters offered here also have)that some alternatives won’t. Format Factory, which I have been using for years doesn’t do 3-D or let you choose the output tailored to a specific device, and neither does Video-to-Video (thanks for that @ Giovanni, by the way.
X-Media Recode has device profiles. However, I think that device-specific presets are overrated, and usually unnecessary. Most modern devices will support H.264/AVC @ Main 3.1 profile, and possibly higher. Then it's really just a question of what screen resolution you want to use. (Some older devices may not play AVC files if CABAC is used, you'll have to check if your device doesn't mind)


But unless you specifically want to play with 3-D or convert your video to a Zune (lol) then I have no reason to suppose that this software is any more or less useful than Format Factory or Video-to-Video.

The original Zune was actually a very easy device to convert for, using practically any conversion program. If you wanted to play it safe, you'd use WMV as your target format, but it would also play most MPEG-4 files. The Zune HD (which I have, and still use once and a while because music sounds great on it) will play most modern formats without complaint.

does it convert swf files as well?

Reply   |   Comment by DUSTY  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Yes, it converts ANY video file, and you can also extract mp3 files from videos. Read the instructions.

SWF files can contain video files -- in those cases if you can grab the video itself as an flv file, FLV Extract *may* be the way to go -- there happens to be a new version today http://www.videohelp.com/tools/FLV-Extract . I say may be the way to go because if you can use the video as-is, without need to convert it, so much the better. If not, the product page for today's GOTD says that yes, it will import swf & flv.

If the SWF does not contain a video file, then you will need to use one of the apps that basically takes a screen shot video recording of the swf as it plays.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system.

We had had Aiseesoft Total Video Converter 7.1.22 on March 7, 2014 and Aiseesoft Total Video Converter Platinum 7.1.8 on September 13th 2013.

Here are the old reviews:
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/total-video-converter-7-1-22/

While the previous version was "Aiseesoft Total Video Converter is one of the best video converters.", this version : "Aiseesoft Total Video Converter is designed with powerful video conversion functions to fix the “unsupported file type” error you frequently meet with.... I never met the "unsopported files type"...

The .exe digitally signed RayShare Co.,Ltd. The codecs are mainly from September, 2014.

One of the many video converters on the market. This one has again the 3-D settings, missing in the latest GOTD.

Clipping several clips, merging the clips, editing (cropping and video settings) works in my short test without a problem.

Does what it claims. You can add this to your endless collection of video converters.

Have a nice Sunday!

>>"powerful video conversion functions to fix the “unsupported file type” error you frequently meet with.… I never met the “unsopported files type”

I may be wrong but wouldn't think you'd download video from every imaginable corner of the web, Karl. :) Lots of people do however, & there's truly a vast array of often misused & abused video formats & settings out there to stumble across. I would guess that to Aiseesoft it all makes for a good business, as many of those folks turn to Aiseesoft's [& similar] software to turn it into something they can play &/or share.

Karl What do you mean by Windows 8.1.3? Isn't it just Windows 8.1?

We get frequently Aiseesoft fine products as GOTD. But never can we fully understand the difference in their flavor? Total Converter vs. Ultimate converter vs. Platinum converter?

Reply   |   Comment by Adif  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+61)

I had an old GOTD Aiseesoft Total Video Converter Platinum Version 7.1.8 given away on 13 Sep 2013.
From checking it seems the "Platinum" label was supposed to indicate capability to make 3D videos from 2D videos.
Aiseesoft suffers from always changing and varying label concepts.
After some time has passed, it seems the capability to make 3D videos from 2D videos has become passe. And it is no longer a distinctive feature.

Therefore in this giveaway offering, the "Platinum" label has been dropped. But the capability to make 3D videos from 2D videos is included.

This confusion in the naming convention of products has remained to this very day. If you click on the URL link provided at the top of this page, it leads you to a website where the new product is named "Aiseesoft Total Video Converter 8"

The intention is to signal ability to use in Windows 8. Yet another new naming convention. They have dropped the "Platinum" & "Ultimate" monikers.

You can safely install this current 7.1.52 giveaway and assume it is an improvement over the old.

The naming conventions are just marketing managers' ideas to grab the attention of the consumer when he walks into a software retail store and looks at the shelf full of boxes of competing software products.

Aiseesoft is an old friends of GOTD users. I think total video converter is not the first time offered here. I notice that this version is the new one and hope it is better than the previous version. Thank you anyway and I will download it and have a try.

This is a nice program but also a confusing program. Currently I have Aiseesoft Total Video Converter Platinum 7.1.8. How does that compare to this offer? I'm not sure. Another annoying habit is the program will open up my browser to take me to it's web site when I start the program. Not every time but often enough to get on my nerves. I think I will stick with what I have but I appreciate the offer.

Just d/loaded today's GOTD, but comparing Ttl Vid Conv Plat [7.1.8.18060] with Ttl Vid Conv [7.1.22.22752], while the GUIs look the same, the output format dialog includes 3D with the Platinum version.

Files in that Platinum version however date to 9/2013 -- given the frequent update cycles of these apps, probably a safe bet that today's GOTD features improvements to both Aiseesoft's code & the underlying ffmpeg.

I've tried numerous times - including re-downloading the program - and keep getting the error message that the file is corrupted when I run set-up. Looks like a good program; don't know what else to try.
Thanks anyway for offering it.

I also was not able to get it to install. After doing setup and install, it stops installing right at the end and comes up with an error message that install/ uninstall stopped working.

Software works great on Windows 10 x64 build 9879. Had similar problem (bad download)on XP tried a different browser Explore to Google. This allowed me to load and run the software.
