With my DVD collection (which is pretty huge) I just use DVDShrink which seems capable of removing ANY DRMs... even the dreaded Disney start screens and trailers. It works in every single case - 100% of the time.

For anything else, I just whack it through Format Factory and again, I always end up with what I'm looking for wether it's .flv to .avi or whatever...

GAOTD has provided several rippers/converters in the past, some of which I still use: Wonderfox, Aisee, Tipard and WiseConverter all do a similar job to today's offering. The obvious difference is that they do it FOREVER, not just a year. WonderFox and Aisee are essentially the same engine (as has been discussed here many times before) and they also let me mess around with green/red 3D which I think is pretty cool.

Passed on this because reading the comments? There is nothing new here.

Well it doesn't convert protected WTV files. Darn. It will load the file, and pretend to convert it. But the result is a mess.

I 'upgraded' to windows 10 and now find so many programs such at the one offered today are not compatible. I was happy with windows 7 and have left it too late to revert.
Windows 10 needs a lot more work before it can be recommended. Why did they rush to get it out? Was it 8 and 8.1 being so terrible that made them do it.

john, sorry but you're really confusing me a tad bit. After years of coming to the "Giveaway of The Day" site I thought this was the "GOTD" comment section. And not Microsoft's. Just sayin'. Also Win 10 CAN automatically revert back to Win 7. You just need to look for it (as if Microsoft has NEVER done anything like that before) ;-) Hang on dude, it'll get better.

"Hybrid is a multi platform (Linux/Mac OS X/Windows) Qt based frontend for a bunch of other tools which can convert nearly every input to..."

'frontend for a bunch of other tools' being the operative term here; how many of these other tools must be downloaded and installed to achieve full functionality of this frontend?

Question: For converting audio files what can this software that dBPoweramp can't do? dBPoweramp does batch conversion of audio and does it well, but it doesn't maintain folder structure. i seem to wind up with a long list of converted songs but they are no longer in their "album" folder. Can today's Giveaway handle that better?

The reference above to windows 10 would not apply to what they are giving, which is 7.2.1.4. The new is 7.3.0.3 which was found to support 10. Any using 10 with the download?

Reply   |   Comment by chidancer  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

According to the heading the version that they are giving away is 7.3 not 7.2 so are you indicating that the actual download is the latter and not compatible with Windows 10? I would like to know for sure before I waste my time downloading the program. Also, to the individual who indicated that they were not able to run Win 7 programs in Win 10 I have yet to experience any problems running either Win 7 or Win 8 programs since moving to Windows 10. The only issue that I have had is with the Nvidia drivers updated automatically by Microsoft. In any event would someone clarify whether the offering today is or is not Windows 10 compatible? Thanks

I have read everything on their web page and can not find anything about converting PAL to NTSC. Does anyone know if this will do that conversion?

Sorry, but I don´t understand your question because that´s just a matter of the settings. Choose the right profile or make the settings by hand and I see no reason that this will not work. Look at the second screenshot: Left below is a button "customise"...

If only it would work. Takes an 11 minute VOB file and says that it's only a 9 second clip of the start of it then run the conversion and almost at the same time it says it is complete. Sure. That's going to be productive.
Actually that interface looks familiar. Yes. It's Leawo Total Media Converter Ultimate. That didn't work a few months ago when it was made available. It still doesn't work today whether it is called Leawo or imElfin.
I just want to be able to bring in my VOB/IFO files, convert them and then edit them. Is that such an impossible request?

This is only one of the eight modules in a suite of programmes called Total Media Converter.

Attempted to convert a two hour movie from MP4 to MKV - after one hour the conversion was at 60% - got bored and cancelled the conversion.
The MP4 was 1.5GB in size and the programme stated that the resulting MKV file would be 3.91GB.

The machine used was a high spec desktop running 64-bit Windows 10.

I was rather disappointed and uninstalled.

Bit of a rip off. The programme only allows video conversion using the provided product key. To use other functions like burning you have to buy extra keys.
As it stands you can only burn 5 minutes of video/DVD.

Very revealing: no country, address etc.

And who is FrancisBorne?
imElfin could perhaps tell: "Francis Borne is dedicated to writing critical and helpful comments for GOTD since 2011" (I suppose). Now you know much more, really?

Above "Convert 100+ video formats", how about a complete list anywhere?
But we better knew before installing this program and not by looking inside the program itself. There are some very rare formats people in former comments about converters were missing!

Is this legal procedure to get rid of DRM etc. the same strategy you can use e.g. with VLC (record again while playing(streaming)?

I'm hoping for some answers from imElfin Studio!

It looks nice but you guys killed your self with Subscriptions also with online activation's. I would of recommend selling your software as bundle for $149.99 lifetime license only charge for updates. This reminds me of dvdfab. I have been using winxdvd products because i pay once and i have it for life also i use Nero Platinum it does it all.

It is not the question if it is legal to remove DRM. If a file has DRM it does not automatically mean that it is illegal to remove DRM. It totally depends how digital rights are managed by the DRM system.

For instance Apple’s DRM; Fairplay: from wikipedia:
FairPlay-encrypted audio tracks allow the following:

1. The track may be played on up to five (originally three) authorized computers simultaneously.[7]
2. A particular playlist within iTunes containing a FairPlay-encrypted track can be copied to a CD only up to seven times (originally ten times) before the playlist must be changed.[8]
3. The track may be copied to a standard audio CD any number of times.[8]
3a.The resulting CD has no DRM and may be ripped, encoded and played back like any other CD. However, CDs created by users do not attain first sale rights and cannot be legally leased, lent, sold or distributed to others by the creator.
3b.The CD audio still bears the compression artifacts, so converting it back into a lossy format, such as MP3, may aggravate the sound artifacts of encoding (see transcoding). When re-ripping such a CD, one could use a lossless audio codec, such as AIFF, Apple Lossless, FLAC or WAV. However, such files take up significantly more space than the original MP3 files.

With Apple Fairplay (DRM protected) music you are allowed to do the above with Itunes: you can burn a drm protected audio file on cd to produce an audio cd (without DRM).

Ran the same test on this program and my preferred program, XMedia Recode, converting a 1.2gb .ts file to avi(xvid).

XMedia Recode took 20mins, this program took 8mins. Not exactly 30x faster but still impressive.

However, having closed the program it now seems to be hit & miss whether it reopens again. Sometimes it starts, sometimes it doesn't (shows in task manager then closes). If I can't rely on the program starting when I want to run it I'll stick with XMedia Recode. Shame as the speed and output when it did run were good.

This program refuses to install on a Windows XP Professional desktop, despite what system requirements says. It is also not suitable for Windows 10 according to the system requirements.

The software only comes with a 1 year licence. It normally costs $35.95 to buy the program but you can get a special price of $28.79 if you buy now, instead of paying the normal price of $47.98.
If the program normally costs $35.95, how does a licence normally cost $47.98?

Sorry, it is not worth bothering with! There are plenty of others, free and paid for, which do install on XP and 10.

Derek.
No problems installing on XP Pro.

However, uninstalled when realised was basically a trial program and it would not remove DRM on a BBC IPlayer download.

XP-Man,

Not the first time a GAOTD program has failed to install on my Windows XP Professional desktop. The files extract, the setup-exe runs and checks for availability, then nothing further happens. The setup does not continue, and the files cannot be deleted normally, as the system says they are in use. Task manager says they are not running. They can only be deleted by using force delete, or restarting the computer. Other days, programs install without any problem.

Derek - check your firewall - you may need to disable it temporarily during setup.

Derek,

$35.95 is the regular price for a 1 year subscription (now selling on their website for $29.99). The lifetime subscription costs $47.98 (which can be purchased today at a 40% discount for $28.79). It is interesting to note that the 40% discount will also work for the 1 year subscription (bringing the price down to $17.99). This information is not clearly stated on the GOTD giveaway page. Anyhow, I am not interested in owning another video converter. I already own several with lifetime subscriptions (such as WinX and WonderFox). What I have is good enough for me.

Hi Jimmy, XP-Man and Homo sapien,

Now I have finished work for the day, I have tried once again with this program.
It will still not install on my Windows XP Professional desktop, even with the firewall disabled - which should never be necessary to install a legitimate software program, as something else could easily 'sneak in' alongside it. This is not the first such problem in recent times, and quite a number of people seem to agree.
Although the system requirements say that it is not for a Windows 10 system, I gave it a try. When it was installing on my Windows 10 laptop, it said that I was installing version 7.2.1.4. As the website says that Windows 10 support is a new feature for version 7.3.0.3, I was very surprised to see that, after the installation was completed, I was then informed that I had version 7.3.0.3.
I have un-installed the program. If the installer does not know which version it is installing, who knows what problems may arise in the future? Also, if the program really is version 7.3.0.3, why is Windows 10 not included in the system requirements?
Altogether, not a satisfactory offer, today.

A 1 year licence for a video converter is rare, so probably won't go down well.

Another vendor that promotes that their product is 30x+ faster but some of the competition is already at the same level.

Claims Windows 10 support, so hopefully that will be a sign of development progress.

Also claims support for 4k output, so that may be worth trying.

NVIDIA® CUDATM, AMD® and Intel® CoreTM support, which is good but another vendor not taking advantage of Intel Quicksync, although it does say in the changelog 'Newly-added support for Intel and AMD graphics accelerating to speed up video conversion dramatically.' which creates some confusion on that aspect.

'Remove DRM protections from WMV, M4V, WMA, M4P, M4B, etc. legally.'

Legally depends on the laws of the prevailing land, for which there will be few that don't recognise that attempting to break DRM would be largely illegal and I'm doubtful of whether it will really have the ability to remove it but somebody I'm sure will test it to see.

I do think that some of these vendors should run their language conversions and phrases though more effective translation processes because when I read 'Funny editing features' it does make me wonder what message they are attempting to impart.

Solely because of the 1 year licence I'm not going to even try this offering unless they confirm Quicksync support or somebody on here gives it rave reviews.

I cannot find anywhere that says this program has Windows 10 support. It does not include Windows 10 in its system requirements section here, and the homepage does not specify anywhere that I can see what operating systems the program is for.

What's New in Version 7.3.0.3 (May. 22th, 2015)

1. Fully support Win10;
2. Supported to output 4K videos;
3. Increased program stability;

To my knowledge. It is not true that if an audiofile is DRM protected, it is automatically illegal to remove that DRM. The Eula that came with purchase of the audiofile decides, and that is THE legal binding agreement (you will see that DRM is never mentioned as being the deciding factor if copying is legal or not).

For instance Apple's DRM; Fairplay: from wikipedia:
FairPlay-encrypted audio tracks (DRM) allow the following:

1. The track may be played on up to five (originally three) authorized computers simultaneously.[7]
2. A particular playlist within iTunes containing a FairPlay-encrypted track can be copied to a CD only up to seven times (originally ten times) before the playlist must be changed.[8]
3. The track may be copied to a standard audio CD any number of times.[8]
3a.The resulting CD has no DRM and may be ripped, encoded and played back like any other CD. However, CDs created by users do not attain first sale rights and cannot be legally leased, lent, sold or distributed to others by the creator.
3b.The CD audio still bears the compression artifacts, so converting it back into a lossy format, such as MP3, may aggravate the sound artifacts of encoding (see transcoding). When re-ripping such a CD, one could use a lossless audio codec, such as AIFF, Apple Lossless, FLAC or WAV. However, such files take up significantly more space than the original MP3 files.

So, there are no rules in any country about "breaking DRM". Making copies is totally depends on the EULA, and the laws of the country.
