I've just paid for this after being impressed with the demo version, and now I have the full version installed, it won't work!!

It just won't convert the videos at all, and I contacted customer support, a lady asked me to send a file for her to test, and when I replied to say I had a sent it, I got a reply saying they where on holiday for 10 days!!!!

I've got work to do here and they decide to take a holiday because they feel like it?!

I hope I can get a refund for this product, though I feel like i've just purchased something from a load of cowboys.

I have tested this program on 3 different levels.

1. Convert from one format to another, without touching anything else than the "right" type of format. --- There is a loss of 15-25% quality.

2. Convert from AVI (29.97 fps) to AVI & Mpeg-4 (30 fps). --- First it looked fine, but after every 1 min. & 11 sec. there is a visible error in frames.

3. The very hard test was to make a picture gallery in pinnacle and export it as Mpeg-4 and then convert it to AVI. --- Same results as 1. + 2. together.

But did you not find anything good about it ?
Yes, I did... The GUI is the best ever seen and used. There is many functions, but some have serious bugs (did freeze my NB twice) and some would be perfect with a little ajustment...

Overall... $29.95 is too much... and $10 make is look cheap and useless... there is free altenatives there have the same level of output quality...

Another question I have. Is there any way to convert the video but to get rid of the audio? I want a silent movie, that is what I mean.

I, too, am confused by the registration window, which asks me to enter a licensed e-mail and a registration code, neither of which I have, even though the GOTD site tells me it's activated. Is this licensed or not? Will it expire?

Downloaded and installed. This software is comparable to other converters.

It has Subtitles which some of the converters do not have. Does anyone know

how to add Subtitles and where can I input the Subtitles? How does Subtitles

work? Sorry, this Subtitle aspect is new to me so any help here is appreciated.

I downloaded the converter 3 months ago on one computer, but
I decided to buy a version for my main machine, where I could not
get it to work.
After numerous attempts to email them, they are confusing both as demo
installations and only issue tickets for their support team. I have
never got a response, and I wonder what they do in their free time.

HELP>>>>>
I followed the instructions and activated the program. No registration number is given. Is there one, because the program still offers registration??? If so, where is it?

Yet another converter spammer. Same software, different skin, way overpriced, buggy, and usually unsupported.

Who wants to pay for every conversion that can be done better with freeware?

Converter spam is for n00bs.

Rudio wrote about difficulties telling if the software has been registered.

While both slots seem to remain blank, you can tell by the absence of the word "unregistered."
Originally, the word "unregistered" appears, but disappears after the software is activated.

To convert a .MOD just rename it to .MPG. You can then use FormatFactory which is free to convert to any other format.

There is another freeware called SDCopy.exe which will rename the MOD to MPG and set the widescreen flag. I use this with my Canon FS100.

OK, I'm really confused why the low rating. Daniusoft offerings are always top-notch. I've yet to see any glitches in them.

I don't have any MOD formatted videos, but as a general video converter, the formats I tested were fine. Device presets are supplied for 3 types of devices: Apple, HTC, and Motorola. For other devices, you need to know the format they support, like M4V or whatever. But I'm suspecting I might be missing something in the GUI to access other device presets, because they brag above about Zune, PSP, Creative Zen.

There's a scissors icon, which gets you to a simple cutting menu.

Highly recommended video converter (because it's from Daniusoft and I suspect there will be zero bugs).

#5: "“wondershare” software and features look promising. don’t know why this is rated so low!..."

Purely FWIW, you can read complaints & such on-line that the authors don't give what many consider proper credit to free-ware &/or open source developers when they incorporate their code & ideas. I think in some circles that's led to a generic sort of bias, with some people blindly accusing developers they think are Chinese of being thieves. Needless to say many will black-list companies like Wondershare/Daniusoft, & especially their video-related apps at every opportunity.

* * *

#6: "And MOD, always thought MOD was a kind of sound file from screamtracker etc."

;-) Google/Bing if you're interested [wikipedia isn't too bad], but if you don't know what a MOD video file is, you likely don't need to know either. ;-)

* * *

#9: "Program is very easy to use and dispite it not being a true 64 bit application it is very fast."

I think you'll find most 64 bit video apps are slower than their 32 bit counterparts (if/when they'll work) because most all the video related code out there in use today is 32 bit -- there's *very* little truly 64 bit optimized.

* * *

#11: "Converting (JVC) camcorder mod files to MPG only needs a rename of the file type And any batch renamer or dos command line will do that."

True, but the main problems I've seen posted are the MOD files have their aspect ratio in a separate file, & simply renaming files reportedly leads to lower quality results. That said, if all you wanted was to put your original video in another container [with no re-sizing or transcoding], you wouldn't want to use something like today's MOD Converter anyway, since that's not what it's deigned for.

Downloaded and installed just fine at 4 am in the morning, but around 1 pm my computer restarted and I got a blue-screen. Not sure if this program was the fault. Anybody had experienced the same problem? Maybe it´s just me and something is wrong with my pc. By the way I have installed more similar programs (converters) on my pc. Maybe that´s why it happend. If you ask, why I have more converters installed, my answer is: to test one by one and keep the best. All my converters are from Giveawayoftheday and by now I don´t know which one has the best quality. Maybe somebody of you can give me some help and tell me which converter is the best one. For sure this would help also other people here. I really have to decide which converter will stay on my pc because my hard-disc is getting fuller and fuller.
Other question: By clicking "register" I couldn´t find any information, so I don´t know if this program is now registered succesfully.
Have a nice weekend all.

1st off don't be confused by the name, Daniusoft MOD Converter -- this is a regular video converter that also accepts MOD video files as input. [You're probably used to hearing that .avi (or .mkv, Windows' Media Center, Quicktime etc.) is just a container that holds video. Well MOD is one type of container for mpg2.] There are lots of good things to say about today's GOTD, but unfortunately 2 bad comments as well -- it includes/installs the Xvid codec along with AC3 filter... the Xvid part isn't too bad, at most probably meaning you *might* want to re-install Xvid to make sure you have the latest version [the file itself doesn't give a version #], *If* you have it already installed. The AC3 filter OTOH is potentially more serious... in a nutshell it can give you compatibility problems, & normally comes with an applet to better control it's features & integration within Windows. Since you don't get that applet with Daniusoft MOD Converter, the risk of problems increases. RE: MOD files, ffmpeg includes support, & while I don't see anything wrong with using Daniusoft MOD Converter [beyond those 2 potential problems], you shouldn't have any trouble finding alternatives.

Daniusoft MOD Converter is a nice, polished converter that comes with the MainConcept encoder & a decent selection of input/output formats. It doesn't *read* DVDs, but does take the .VOB files containing video on a DVD [the free DVD shrink can copy the title from an unencrypted DVD to a folder on your hard drive with just a single .VOB file, making things easier]. It also has an option to "Load Files from Device..." [i.e. a camera]. For output there are a couple of nice touches -- you can turn off formats you don't use, so selecting a profile is quicker/easier, & profiles for hand-held devices like your cell, include a picture to make identification quicker. You can customize output profiles, including typing in new frame sizes -- something you might need as the DroidX profile for example is off. Unfortunately you can't edit all the settings so freely -- for HD you might want/need fps &/or bps not listed. It would also be nice to have your choice of AAC, MP3, AC3 etc audio with more profiles [your cell might be restricted to what it can play, but why restrict video headed for your PC?]. Preferences include an option for CUDA -- video card/chip hardware assist if you have compatible/capable nVidia hardware. [nVidia graphics hardware has a minority market share, & not all of their hardware supports CUDA &/or will make a difference. Actually truth is I don't know whether to be puzzled or insulted, since AMD/ATI has had their Stream out longer & it's been included in Cyberlink & Roxio apps for years.]

Under Preferences you'll also set whether to keep just the last version of a converted file -- handy but it can mess you up if you're unaware of this & making different versions on purpose, e.g. one for your cell, one for a MP3 player etc. You also set the temp folder, # of CPU cores to use, & processing sequence if you have more than one file to convert. You can merge separate video files with a checkbox or through the Edit menu, while the trimming window is separate from the tabbed editing window -- not problems, it just might throw a few people who aren't used to this *slightly* unusual arrangement. The trimming window [Scissors button] is where you cut off the beginning &/or end of the clip. The editing window has tabs for Crop [where you also set the aspect ratio], Effect [brightness, contrast, emboss etc.], Watermark [add text *Or* image], & Subtitle [import text-based sub files .srt, .ass, & .ssa].

Installation as noted adds Xvid.ax & ac3filter.ax to the system folder, along with iconv.dll & WSContextMenu.dll -- registering those files accounts for the bulk of the roughly 190 registry adds... you also get an uninstall key, 2 for the app, & 2 more when you run Activate.exe. The app itself takes up ~67 MB in the program's folder with 204 files, 11 folders -- you also get Start Menu shortcuts & a folder under My Documents.

Provided you don't mind backing up in case you have problems with AC3 Filter, &/or don't mind installing the full AC3 filter package to maybe fix compatibility issues, Daniusoft MOD Converter is a good app. OTOH it isn't unique, doesn't offer you something you can't find elsewhere, so if potential AC3 issues bother you, don't feel badly about passing up this GOTD.

Looks like this might be a good program, but again it is a watered down teaser designed to SELL you the "Pro" version.

The first thing that comes up when you install it is not the program, but an invitation to purchase the better quality version of their product (at a reduced price for GAOTD users, of course).

I luv ya, GAOTD, and appreciate all the really good stuff you offer, but it looks like more and more the site is becoming a distributor of teaser-ware rather than offering "not a trial, not a limited version – but a registered and legal version of the software will be free for our visitors" (as per the "About" page).

While many might not need to convert MODs, the TS converter can be useful for those with WinTVv7. Although I usually just use Format Factory for the TS conversions.

As with most 32 bit applications this installed with out issue on windows 7 x64.

Program does what it clams, it convert video from one format to another.

Program is very easy to use and dispite it not being a true 64 bit application it is very fast.

I converted several 80 meg + videos in undet 10 minutes

"wondershare" software and features look promising. don't know why this is rated so low! how many free video SW can you get which allow virtually all kinds of video editing, e.g., format conversion w/ portable player support, audio extraction, trimming, cropping, effect customizing, SS capture, batch conversion, pro output setting, user-friendly options with your HD camcorder files? do folks who downrated care to mention?

Dispite the name MOD Converter is really a many-to-many video-format-converter.

It is not based on FFMpeg, but on the About screen it says
Developed by Wondershare Software Corporation. We seen good quality software from them before.

I always dislike the many profiles targeting specific 'devices', but in this case there is an picture of the device too making selection very easy if you don't know the type.

Still i feel all these specific profiles make it more difficult to predict what the compatibility/quality will be when playing the file on another device. It is really much more dependent on the player application than on the hardware. Update your rom or applications once in a while and you can forget about all these time-consuming conversions.

How do I see that the software is registered after doing:
"then run the activation program Activate.exe which is included in the package to register your copy."

The about screen tell's nothing and also no registerd message in help/about.
