Found out that after clicking on the "finish" button on program install I was finally able to enter my info on their web page without getting the "date expired" notice & it then gave me a new window with the code as well as sending me an email with the code as well! Good Luck, I hope this helps those who had the same problem I did!

humanist7, It would have been nice to have some kind of response. If you are going to offer your software, you should have someone monitoring things for the entire time of the giveaway. Otherwise you drive people away from the software and company in general. While also giving the GOTD folks a bad look. Because of this I'm not sure it would ever be worth my while to deal with Laewo ever again. Too many other options out there. Not the way to run a business.

If you downloaded Leawo DVD Ripper from GOTD about a month or 2 ago, the reg. code process in the readme file will work on that software to register the DVD Creator listed as 'Trial' in the Ripper Toolbar. Enter it in the 'Activate' field. .

So how good is the image quality after being converted to DVD format ?

Phillip Lipton, just try!

Reply   |   Comment by Jan Van Looveren  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-13)

Phillip Lipton, obviously limited to the various DVD resolutions and it will be dependant upon the bitrate you are able to select bearing in mind it will have to use Mpeg2 compression format so it is not very efficient.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Phillip Lipton,

As TK posted, you're limited to the 720 x 480 [NTSC] or 720 x 576 [PAL] frame sizes. Quality itself depends on the video you use, e.g. a high quality 1080p video re-encoded to 720 x 480 can look very good on a lower rez screen, & generally is acceptable [watchable] on a 1080 display.

It gets tricky though, particularly for NTSC video [as used in the US]... the max bit rate is ~9, and you're limited to ~4.5 or 8 GB of storage on single & dual layer DVDs. As TK also posted, the mpg2 encoding that DVDs use is less efficient than something like the AVC used on Blu-rays -- at DVD frame sizes an mpg2 file is roughly double the size of the same video using AVC. To make the best use of the available disc space you want to use Variable Bit Rate encoding [VBR]. And if the source is originally 24 fps [like most movies], for NTSC you want to use drop frame encoding -- what that does is let you store only 24 frames per second, so smaller files, that are played back at the required 29.97 fps. [Note: nowadays you *may* be able to get away with 24 fps non-drop frame video -- IF your DVD authoring software will allow it -- depending on your playback device.]

But wait -- it gets trickier still... because DVDs were designed in an analog world, what you see on a PC at *roughly* 640 x 480 NTSC has to be resized to a 720 x 480 frame -- PAL requires a similar resizing. [I say "Roughly" because the math, exact figures, & the reasons behind it would take a full page to explain.] 16:9 wide-screen video also has to be squeezed into that same 720 x 480 or 576 frame -- the player expands it back out to full size. And just like still images, resizing video does effect quality too -- another reason you want to start with high quality video, so you can better afford the data loss.

My goodness Mike, that was an outstanding reply to Phillip Lipton's question!

You really need to be commended for taking the time to share your vast knowledge with the folks that visit this site.

Thank you sir for being so generous with your time.

I know I have personally benefitted from your comments and just wanted to let you know that what you do is appreciated.

That goes for other commenters on this site that post helpful comments as well.

I actually don't download too much any longer, because I pretty much have all the software I need, but still come here to partake of the treasure trove of info to be gleaned from the comments.

Thanks to all that share here!

Best regards, Mister Lee

mike, i think you forgot the ELP DVD-Video resolutions 352x576 and 352x288 for PAL and 352x480 and 352x240 for NTSC lowest resolutions.

Ideally one should start with uncompressed video stream or losslessly compressed, anything else will be a compromise of lossy compression artifacts on top of lossy compression artifacts which can be very ugly on a large screen.

consuella, The very learned explanation that Mike gives is very good, but then there is the question if Phillip Lipton knows what he is talking about after that explanation. It seems that Phillip Lipton is a debutant.

TK,

You *might* be able to find an excellent DVD authoring guide on the net from 15 years ago; "PIlgrims Guide to DVD Authoring". The V2 guide was comprehensive, and corrected a few errors in the initial version.

I haven't looked for it in a while, so cant post a link (I'm also at work....)

If you have the previous v5 from GAOTD - DO NOT UPGRADE!

The upgrade process is smooth, simple, and works. The end result is the crippling of a perfectly good program. The previous version opens in a small window, with a neat and uncluttered interface, taking up a small part of the screen.

I can't adequately describe what 7 looks like in a short, coherent sentence, so bear with me:

My screen resolution is 5120x1440 (dual 2160 x 1440 monitors). The v7 opens a "interface" that is almost 1400 pixels high, and not far short of 2000 pixels across. It can resized - but only larger!

The interface is like a horribly simplistic Windows 8 app; large, blocky, large point sized fonts, large widgets. Think of any application running in "simple mode", and you have the new version interface.

Settings has no means of control other than setting the language, the "priority native codec" the "Max Run" (with no information what this means - the i button doesnt work), default PAL/NTSC, number of CPUs to use, and the internet connection (why? its a disk burner!)

Thats it - no means to resize this horrible, awful interface.

It gets worse. For creating a disk menu, you can only use the built-in menu template system. By this, use the built-in templates, an on-line template, or a custom template. The supplied templates are less than basic - they are childish, literally, looking like illustrations in primary school. Tweaking is limited. Literally, limited to moving about the image of the video segments for the disk being created.

Frankly, I find the interface so "dumbed down" to be insulting.

I quite liked v5 - a clean, compact, relevant, easy-to-use interface. V7 is a huge step backwards in terms of usabillity and interface. So much of a step back, I'm sure it must be aimed at young children.

Sorry guys, give me back v5 any day.

Reply   |   Comment by Alan  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+46)

An update.

The second I posted, I uninstalled the software. Horrified to see it takes up almost 300MB on disk (!!!!). The uninstall process does launch the Leawo software site, where the ask why one is uninstalling. And to their credit:

a) one of the options is "I dont like the interface"
b) they provide a link to download the previous version (in my case V5)

So whilst I don't like v7, a thumbs up to Leowo for recognising the new interface is not to everyones taste, and a means of using the older version that the user was happy with!

Reply   |   Comment by Alan  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+43)

Alan, Thanks for your review, it was most helpful. However i must say that most of the users who come to sites like this one are looking for free stuff that is easy, simple to understand and use, with the emphasis on simple. The interface is more often not a part of the issues we have, since we are not all wiz kids or is ready to give out the kind of money that the better looking programs cost. We are mostly just interested in knowing the given program preforms well and does the job it was intended to do well .

Reply   |   Comment by Alston James  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-7)

Hi Alston, thanks for the kind comment!

Agreed, its a case of different tools for different people. I just found the interface simplistic to the point where it had taken the software backwards rather than forwards. Without meaning to insult anyone, if I was looking for a program for a 10year old to create DVD/BD videos, and/or slideshows, then v7 would be a go-to tool. It would excel at that level. Please dont get me wrong, I don't mean to equate anyone who is not a "whiz kid" to a ten year old!

I think that rather than castrating the existing program to achieve that, Leowo might have been marketing this as a separate, different, product, and retaining the v5 type tool and interface as a different product. Anyway, have a like as your raise a good point :)

Alan,

Thanks for the heads up about V5. I have V5.3 from previous giveaway but it now shows 'Unregistered'. I guess it was limited license.

Based on what you wrote, I'd rather get V5. It seems the only way to get V5 now is install V7, Unistall, they give you option to download V5.

Then, what about the registration key? How did you register your V5?

Reply   |   Comment by vin  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Alan, I didn't see a "I dont like the interface" choice. Nearest to that for me is:

"So ugly interface. I don’t like its design" and choosing that and submitting does not provide a link to download any previous versions... could you post it here please? As I'd like the earlier version too especially if it's the stand alone version and not a subsection of the bloatware suite like V7.* are.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

humanist7, at al

I would - but I wasn't asked for it on install, I'm guessing it picked up something from the previous installation that wasn't removed when V7 upgraded from v5, nor when I uninstalled v7.

I'll have a gander if I get time later.

Reply   |   Comment by Alan  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

TK,

There was no link per-se, the uninstaller opened a browser page on the Leowo site, which asked for feedback regarding why I was uninstalling. The first option was "I don't like the interface", and on the page was a hypertext link "I want to revert back to previous version (5.something something)"

I'd guess that as part of the installation or usage, Leowo collect user information such as email address and software version number, then use to dynamically generate the chance to revert back to the last installed version - hence rather than a generic "let me download an older version" it lists a very specific version.

Couldn't get it to install on Windows 10. Just asked to install "Software Informer". What is that?

Reply   |   Comment by Grump Pah  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-4)

Pah, software informer is an add-on to let you know of new software released. Users are prompted if they want the add-on with any install of GOTD software. I typically leave these options unselected and without issue.

And if you read your mail good, you can download the software and install it.

Installation & registration went without a hitch on Win 10. Open the program and created a BR disc, the entire operation was easy, just drag your video file into the box, select a template (can download more), edit the title of your movie, set the type and size of disk you are burning to and hit burn ... Job done, quickly and easily, with good results. Thanks.

When I was first exposed to Leawo products, I put them in the category of "decent products to have in the toolbax." When they introduced their consolidated interface where all of their products could be accessed from one manager, I didn't have a problem with that either. The user was given an e-mail address to use to activate the program. That e-mail address is connected to the giveaway site. The user is happy with the license that will last for some decent ans respectful period of time, usually a year in the ones I have noticed.

Then within a short period of time, they have an offer of a different program but on a different giveaway site. Great, now I will have two of their products. They now give the user a different e-mail address to use to activate the program, and it is associated with the different giveaway site.

Then you realize, the first application just lost its activation because it was tied to a different giveaway site, no matter if you used it for a week or month; it is now de-activated.

If you have multiple computers you can use each one for a different giveaway site, but if you wish to use the same computer, then you will need to decide if you prefer to keep any previous apps or start over with the new one.

Is Leawo DVD Creator worth starting over?

Gary,
As far as I am concerned yes. I have found it to do more than what I need and if you have problems even though it is a free program they will help with a great attitude.
