I converted a bunch of flash video files to .MP4 with this program. The MP4 video files turned opt being about 10 times the size to the original flash files.

Also, there is no batch file section function. You can select an entire directory but you will still need to click a START button to start the conversion for each file in the directory.

I'm not sure if this software is ready for Prime Time yet. It doesn't work well for my needs.

seedo, we did read the readme; it's just that the publisher did a remarkable job of disguising the fact that the "Get Free LIcense Code" text on their giveaway page is clickable, as it's neither styled like a button nor does
mousing over it give you a "pointing finger" pointer.

I think I'll stick with RipBot256. It's free and I have full control of everything including 4k, correct conversation of fps, audio delay, Trimming, TV to PC etc.

There's always Handbrake - it's always free probably does a much better job that this tool.

This company had offered more converter's, most of them with one input-format.
Installation etc same as the others. Screen's also.
Something I do not understand.
A video with a higher resolution(4096) takes almost the same space as a file with lower resolution(640).
And the file with lower resolution as the original takes more space:

Ootje,

"Something I do not understand.
A video with a higher resolution(4096) takes almost the same space as a file with lower resolution(640)."


The short answer is that's because they're encoded differently.

If you were using a 4k display, & took screen shots of video playing full size, the screenshot image file of a 4k video would be larger than the screenshot of 1080 video would be larger than 480 video and so on -- that's common sense since the 4k image would contain many more pixels [data] than the other 2 sizes. Logically the number of images [frames] per second also makes a difference in the size of a video file, since storing 10 images takes up less space than storing 30. This is what you'd expect. The actual file sizes you see however reflect different methods & amounts of video compression.

With video compression the efficiency of the method [codec] matters, as do the quality-related settings. The quality settings generally work similar to those same settings with MP3 audio files, in that the lower the quality, the more data that gets tossed out, & because of that, the lower the quality, the less the results match the original. Comparing different frame size videos encoded the same way gets a bit more complicated, since the bit rate that's set will vary, depending on how much data has to be moved from the file to the display, but generally a DVD encoded to AVC at original quality might be around 2GB, while the 1080p Blu-ray version might be around 25 - 35GB.

mike, "because they're encoded differently."
I did selected the same profile.
At first I converted at high resolution 4096.
After it was finisched, I loaded the same originals again.
And ONLY selected a different resoltution, 640. All other setting on that profile were not changed.
If I did selected a different profile, I would understand.
Same profile, different reoslution, almost same size of file.

Ootje, what you are missing is ALL the output presets have common, insanely HIGH preset and default bitrates... YOU MUST KNOW AND MANUALLY SET THE OUTPUT BITRATE REQUIRED FOR THE SPECIFIC CODEC AND VIDEO DIMENSIONS INCLUDING FRAME RATE THAT YOU ARE PRODUCING. If you do not you will get the codec set to multiple megabits per second and that will often produce far BIGGER files than inputs when say converting an x264 MP4 to say an x265 mkv file. It is a LONG standing design fault with ALL of the Dimo products! Mainly because they ALL use the same conversion engine and just tweak the acceptble input parameters i.e. MP4 or MTS or HD or Bluray Disc or DVD or the full product VideoMate. This product is not for normal computer users, only people familar with beta testing for a living are likely to be able to get the most out of these products as they are used to trying every possible input selector box and seeing if it is also a conventional input box that you can type a free form value into as well.

mike, the correct answer is the default bitrate settings of Dimo converter engine is not related in any way to the chose profile template or the video dimensions and are wholy inappropriate for anything other than small clips at high DVD quality profiles or moderate Bluray disc profiles and NOT for any efficeint coding like AVC x264 or HEVC h265 for internet use. So end up with high efficiency codecs being instructed to encode with the worse efficency than Mpeg2.

TK, "YOU MUST KNOW AND MANUALLY SET THE OUTPUT BITRATE "
You're right. I did not set/read the specific settings.
I just set a profile:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/qs42rhqq7i4g1tp/GeladenVideo.png
And set it to 4096. Nothing else.
And the second time it choose the same profile and set it to 640. nothing else.
But I did not looked at the other settings, changed or not changed. I assumed that they were the same.
So at the end I was wondered about he size.
Also when I looked at the properties; almost the same KBPS 7568 and 7674:

Today's developer continues to live in a world of its own, stripping out from its very ordinary converter individual components which it then offers up as one-trick ponies at prices so over-the-top they defy belief. Today's single-purpose MP4 converter, at a hoped-for $56 retail, is a case in point.

Free MP4 converters abound. So do free video converters which manage every kind of input and output file format. And so, too, do paid-for full service video converters that are regularly offered by major software publishers on giveaway sites such as GOTD.

Dimo's cynical approach to marketing and seeming contempt for the intelligence of its target audience would be bad enough. But there's also the fact that its self-proclaimed expertise notwithstanding, it appears to know so little about the world of video that it's quoting Sony Vegas in today's promotional blurb, this despite the fact that Sony's lack of investment in that once renowned product meant it declined to the point where it was flogged off cheap to German developer Magix two years ago and is, effectively, no more.

If Dimo genuinely means business, it should take advantage of the excellent platform GOTD provides to all developers and promote the fully functioning software it publishes rather than extracting bits and pieces and pretending they're worth something. Until it does, its succession of one-trick ponies fools no-one.

MikeR, couldn't agree more!! On their website, the $56 is crossed off and the price of $37.95 is listed, to make people think they're getting a bargain. Almost every tech vendor on the web tries to use this marketing subterfuge, including PC vendors with their ubiquitous "instant savings".

MikeR, I couldn't believe the creator was offering a one-format converter after reading the description, so I checked out the comments to see what I was overlooking. Turns out it is a dumb as I thought. Thank you so much for the excellent description - I won't waste my time with this.

Reply   |   Comment by Mike Solinas  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

MikeR, yeah I refuse to waste space and time even trying their cut down single file spec products I have one of their previous VideoMate version from a previous giveaway and do not ever have the need to use it, having much more joy with always free X-Media recode. The fact they also bundle two useless extra products of Downloader and a barely functional web server that can only be pointed at a folder with media files in it and once its been started there is no stop facility apart from shutting down the program and no non-android based smart TV can stream the media from their server... and every set of folders on differnt drives you want to serve has to be specified individually which then spawns a fresh instance of their basic web server on a different port... not on the same port and linked into the presented heirachy... unusable!

The publisher's giveaway page appears to be missing the license code.

If you look at the HTML source of that page, you can see the license info popup, but it says "Hi folks, the giveaway campaign is expired" where the code should be.

Jim Stone, If I recall correctly their code retreival page is browser specific and on some brrowsers does not display the license on pressing the proper button and on other browsers the same page does work. Of course it may actually be broken! Having giveaways where the vendors define the key distribution method are known to get things wrong!

Not the most polished app of this sort, but it gets the job done.
The application can be deployed in a matter of seconds thanks to a typical installer and is by no means a sophisticated application regarding functionality. The user interface looks quite decent and it provides easy access to all the functions, however, we have experienced a few annoying glitches and delays during our tests.
