converts extremely slow and is CPU hog. 3.2 ghz cpu in computer, 2.5 gig memory, and 2.5 hours later is only 66% with nothing else running (and to low quality video conversion). win avi takes less than 45 minute and is finished converting dvd quality. tried to cancel conversion and froze computer to point had to hard boot with power button. tried uninstalling and it kept crashing internet when it opened browser to finish uninstalation. total horrible program, i'll stick with win avi.

It can convert video files to all popular video and audio formats,such as AVI to MPEG, WMV to AVI, WMV to MPEG, WMV to AVI, VOB to AVI, WMA to MP3, etc. Pretty good!

Would not activate on Windows 7 Pro 64, even though a web page would open saying activated. (Of course I tried to install both the software and activate as Admin). You should test this beforehand so people don't waste time..

Like others, the program said successfully activated, but it wasn't. Still feature limited. I am a 20 year IT professional, so it's not like I'm making a bunch of newb mistakes here. Tried running it in compatibility mode (both setup and activate). Tried different setup options, tried rebooting after install and before activate, tried rebooting after setup and activate, tried everything I could. No combination of conditions successfully activated the program and, while others may have been able to get it to activate, my guess is that many more did not. GOTD should reissue this and get the setup/activation routine fixed for those of us who got screwed.

64 bit Windows 7 ultimate.

"FWIW & in case it helps, both the setup program & Activate.exe have to write to the registry in an area that’s restricted in 7 — try & make sure you run both as admin. If that fails, shouldn’t hurt to right click the setup & activate .exe files, select Properties, & then try setting compatibility before running them again"


I un installed the program and ran both setup programs in XP SP3 compatibility mode and it still didn't activate. I give up and since the day is coming to an end I'm very disappointing that there has been no reply from the company providing this program in the way of help. I will not use their programs in the future.

I've got Vista Home, and the software activated perfectly. I closed the program completely first, ran Activate, and started it up again. No nag screens, and "Register.." option is still there under the Help menu, but everything's filled in and proper.

Installed on Windows 7 64-bit system, but it will not activate. When I run the program, it asks for a registration code.

Same as others. I ran the activation program and it came up to tell me that the program was activated. Activation does not work on my Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Looks like a 64-bit problem.

Activation failed after all attempts with Windows 7 x64. Used administrator priviledges, closed program after install, ran activation then tried other ways but to no avail.

No.

#9: "Registration failed despite multiple attempt with and w/o opening the program"

FWIW & in case it helps, both the setup program & Activate.exe have to write to the registry in an area that's restricted in 7 -- try & make sure you run both as admin. If that fails, shouldn't hurt to right click the setup & activate .exe files, select Properties, & then try setting compatibility before running them again.

The installation and the activation was without any problems, but even after reboot the program remain unregistred with all the limitations.

So actually what I have got and now used hours to get running is a trial version of a perhapsvery interesting program.

My system is windows vista 64 bit

Nice. Now I would have been really, *Really* impressed if Daniusoft Video Converter produced HD video that passed Blu Ray compliance testing -- THAT would have made it a real (& rare) gem -- but as it is Daniusoft's Converter is in good company with a handful of other, very capable converters that handle HD very well.

[Note: Many (most?) Blu Ray authoring apps sold retail, even in the mid-range &/or home markets (e.g. Sony, Roxio/Sonic etc) perform a somewhat stricter than spec *Compliance* test to help make sure your disc plays everywhere. Unfortunately their built-in encoders are usually slow & lack most controls &/or settings, so there is something of a demand for good encoders that produce compliant video. Of course you can always use free-ware &/or open source apps to put together the required files/folders layout to make it playable in many Blu Ray players, & without compliance checking video from Daniusoft Video Converter will *probably* do just fine... it just *might* not play on/in as many players.] [Note2: FWIW Blu Ray doesn't have to be high end, with many <$100 players available, most with std TV outputs, most accepting Blu Ray on DVD (BD5 & BD9) plus AVCHD on DVD discs. It's also cheaper to buy a Blu Ray player with on-line streaming video (NetFlix etc) than it is a NetFlix dedicated box.]

Daniusoft Video Converter is a pretty painless install, with a very low impact on Windows. This appears to be one app where the directions [run Activate *After* install] actually matter. As far as audio/video encoders/decoders go [i.e. CODECs], Daniusoft's converter has & uses it's own -- this is good if you don't want an app taking over audio/video handling on your system -- bad if you need an output format they don't include. Notable is the fact it accepts files encoded with/in the vc1 format -- output formats include H264 [AVC] HD .flv [Flash video] per the profile's description. Speed of transcoding isn't bad at all -- I'd rate it a C+ or B- after testing a dozen or so encoders in the last couple of weeks... H264/AVC HD encoding is just slow, wherever & however you do it, & the fastest I've come across encoding 1080p [1920 X 1080 24fps] to 720p [1280 X 720 24fps] was roughly real-time [depending on the amount of motion in the video, a 1/2 hour clip took me just about 1/2 hour to encode]. I timed that same 1080p -> 720p AVC conversion with a 2 min 15 sec clip, & Daniusoft Video Converter took 3 min 20 sec [to help illustrate the bell curve, many encoders were 2 - 2.5X real-time]. While I *think* it uses some Direct X where my ATI graphics card made a *very* minor contribution, encoding didn't use the card's GPU. It did use all 4 cores of an AMD quad, but none close to 100%. It did not use as much RAM as most of the encoders I tried. Results in mpg2 & AVC 720p HD looked very good, & while the video didn't pass that compliance testing I talked about, the AC3 audio did.

In a nutshell then, & IMHO of course, it wouldn't be a waste of time (& is pretty painless as well) to try this converter to see how it compares to what you use already. But OTOH if you're happy with what you've got, Danuisoft's converter doesn't really bring anything new to the table -- e.g. while the limited editing functions are cool, they're by no means unique, & many people don't use that sort of thing anyway [if you record TV video, many of the major DVR/viewing apps can be set up to detect & skip commercials already, so there's nothing to cut.].

Installed fine on 32bit vista hp.
Used it to merge and convert avchd lite files from my Panasonic Lumix camera and got pretty good results. For owners of Lumix cameras the merge function is a great boon as the software that comes with the camera is very basic and does not support merging of individual clips.

OK, I followed the instructions correctly and I'm running Windows XP 64 bit. The software will NOT activate. I installed the software, but didn't launch it. I ran the activation program and it came up to tell me that the program was activated.
Then when I launch the program, it wants a registration key and it is NOT Activated. In fact, it tells me that it will only let me encode 3 minutes worth and it will put a watermark on the result.

So, I guess you folks haven't tested this out with 64 bit XP, have you? I am an administrator on the computer so that can't be the issue. Also, I've been running activations for years for GOTD programs and this is the very first one that hasn't worked. Could you fix this please before the 24 hours runs out?

Reply   |   Comment by Friendlymentor  –  6 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+26)

Umm....slight problem with this software. Activate.exe says software has been successfully activated, but when you start the program, you are asked for a licensed email and registration code. Also, when I tried to convert a video file, I was told that there would be a watermark, and I would be limited to three minutes of audio. Not exactly what I would call functional software. Is there a fix for this, please?
Thanks.
George

In the first comments under THE BAD, it says * Doesn’t allow usage of H.264 codec for FLV outputs.

I installed the program and when i looked under PROFILES i found the ability to convert to FLV MPEG-4 MOVIE (*.F4V).
I believe that is the HD output of FLV, right ?
If that's the case, then it actually DOES support HD FLV outputs !
