I fail to understand why users cannot follow simple instructions about installation and use.
After installation, the programme gives you 2 options to add Blu-ray or add DVD.
Click on either and a pull down menu appears:
Copy Bluray disc to Folder
Copy Bluray disc to ISO

Copy DVD disc to Folder

Win10 64

kokobin, DO IT YOURSELF! Do a conversion to an HEVC MKV then come back to us how simple and error free your experience was as you will see it fall over when it tries to do ANY conversion.

Then wait for the next person who has not tried it to fail to understand how people can't follow simple instructions... Don't criticise complaints when you have not even tried to do what everyone is complaining about.

It does list one of its key features as:

•Convert Blu-ray/DVD to MP4, MOV, MKV, AVI, iPad, iPhone, Xbox, Gear VR, etc.

Not just copying content off a Blue-Ray or DVD disc to folders with no conversion. Who in their right mind would waste all that hard disk space when much better codecs are available!

Had no trouble registering or installing program. It crashed as soon as I tried to rip a DVD though. Even if it hadn't, I think I would've uninstalled it anyway. File sizes are too large for what I want them for. Will wait for a better ripper to appear on GOTD.

Reply   |   Comment by Talk Talk Fan  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Talk Talk Fan, the default bit rates on the templates are insanely high and inapropriate for moden codecs ranging from 4000Kbps to 30000Kbps when with HEVC we can use 3000Kbps for a full 4096x2160p video and for FHD we can use much lower bitrates and still get completely acceptable apearance to the output video.

To get sensible sized output files that could compete with more well know conversion programs that are more mature you have to manually edit the bitrates it offers you in the codec settings panel to your desired rates for both video and audio.

I agree with Pete. Installs and registers fine. You can load a blu-ray and select a title to rip but it crashes without any errors being given.

installed and registered successfully on my windows 7 ultimate machine, that's about the most positive thing I can say for this software, tried to rip a disc to folder and the program immediately crashes, tried several times with the same result. I also noted that the wording throughout the program is broken english at best and often times counter-intuitive. I'm going to try a few more times but it looks like this will not be staying on my pc. thanks for the offer but I have other software that does what this one is supposed to and it doesn't constantly crash or make me try and decipher the meaning of the various menus.

This is a rebranded and refactored product derived from DimoVideoConverterUltimate with the same GUI rendering flaws over remote desktop and the same flaws with the bundled really basic web server that is incorrectly decribed as a media server... it is not even close. And as always there is no way to stop any server instance once it is started for any chosen folder other than by shutting down the entire program.

I note that it was possible to drag and drop an mp4 file onto the GUI and it almost worked except the spawned kmcvt.exe included in this build is the wrong one for the version of ffmpeg libraries used in this program since this program installs with avcodec-57.dll instead of the files kmcvt.exe looks for which are of the name type avcodec-56.dll which are NOT included in this installation. I fixed the build bug by renaming the old and orphanned kmcvt.exd in the Monstune installation folder to kmcvt-bad.exe and coppied a good kmcvt.exe that uses the correct avcodec-57.dll dll family from a previous giveaways of Dimo Videomate 4.1 install folder into this. Once this is done it was able to import the drag and dropped .mp4 video and convert it to a mkv format so the side effect of Dimo using a common core engine in all their reskinable and rebrandable products is that even if the GUI does not have a Add video File(s) button the underlying processing remains there and can be used if some build bugs are addressed by a little ingenuity.

TK, looks like the moderator that hates all my comments is on duty for this giveaway... Following the fix/workaround I described in my earlier comment several hours ago I was able to do a conversion I had previously found impossible to do with any video converter and that was to upscale an AVC encoded small MP4 file to a 4096x2160p HEVC coded MKV file, it took a loooong time but it did NOT crash or lockup and the end result plays properly too. I strongly suspect that most if not all the crashes that have been reported on here are due to Dimo including the wrong version of kmcvt.exe that required a different version of the ffmpeg related libraries so it would simply crash when ever asked to do any conversion that was performed by kmcvt.exe I did think about popping the open source kmcvt.exe which is really the ffmpeg.exe runtime up on one of my cloud storage services and made it publically accessible and post a comment here so everyone can fix their broken installation but figured what's the point if the moderator is just going to hold back all my comments once again... Shame the moderator cannot see beyond a little embarrasment and see the fact that it could have mitgated the royal mess that Dimo made of this giveaway by not building the installer properly and at least some of the braver visitors could have obtained a working program from the information that was in my comments!

Does not work on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

Installs and registers without issue, but as soon as you try to rip any videos from a DVD the program crashes with no error messages of any kind. Didn't bother trying any Blu-rays.

Uninstalled. Disappointing, though looking through the settings the configuration options are pretty limited anyway.

They will make you jump hoops with the registration process but it registered fine. Added commercial Blu-ray disc, loaded fine on HP BH30L Blu-ray Optical Drive (win-7 64) click start to Lossless MKV, DimovideoconverterUltimate.exe has stopped working, close, restarted windows a couple of times, same results. Uninstalled.

Not sure this is the full version, as the option for "download" for online videos appears to be missing, even though it is mentioned in their "10 second guide before getting started", which pops up on a web page after the install.

The program does not work. After DVD has been opened and conversion started, the program disappears immediately. The program closes itself without error message. Not good.

I too have other software for this that works very well, both purchased and GAOTD. Your comment is useless without you actually downloading and trying the software as I will be doing. Please refrain from negative comments unless you have actually downloaded and tested the software. It does the rest of us no good to read worthless comments.

gregn357, After you have tested this software.
Tell everyone if it decrypts commercial DVDs or BD's.
Also if it removes Cinivia.
I don't consider a headsup about this "useless".
Since the software website doesn't let anyone know either way.

BTW I consider your reply rude but at least I didn't call it "useless,negative,& worthless".

Guys, no need to fight about it.

I played a bit around with it and successfully copied a CSS-protected DVD onto my hard drive, a bit slowish but nonetheless.

Maybe somebody else can come up with their own findings.

Chasm, Better or worse than DVD Shrink 3.2 in your opinion?

Reply   |   Comment by Jim Jones  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Jim Jones, DVDShrink took a bit to load the DVD initially but it wrote the main movie with around 8000 KB/S - 10,000 KB/s at peak and it took a while to get there (like 50%), highest peak was at 11,800 KB/s to the end, main movie was listed with 4.200 MB.

I started copying at 2:11 and it ended at 2:20.

With Monstune i started at 2:23 but for the whole DVD (5.87 GB), there were no options to simply select the main movie, so it's more data to be written. Copying ended at 2:32.

Imo they are pretty equal in terms of speed. Hope this helps.

Hi, I do not understand all your negative comments :-(
To get thhe license key, as explained in the Read-me file, go to
https://www.ifrmovie.com/monstune-giveaway
Clic on Facebook; this opens a new tab; if you have no Facebook (nor Twitter) account, just go back to the previous tab: you will read:

"Thanks for sharing. Please get setup file & license code below:

Setup:https://ifrmovie.com/download/monstune-install.exe [not necessary to download since you already downloaded it!]]

License Code:" and here you can read the key.
Install the software (you have no choice between C: and D); to enter the key, clic on the square with the arrow on the top right side (left to -x). That's it.

For Mac, you have the .dmg file which is also included in your download.

I have only one question: https://www.mediadimo.com/video-converter-ultimate/welcome shows 4 possibilities to copy: Add file (missing in my version!), Add DVD, Add Blu-Ray, Make iso (also missing in my version!); why are those two possibilities missing?

Installed fine for me on Windows 10, but crashes once I hit the start button.

Even if it did work, there is no batch option. So if you want to rip the movie and any extras, you have to them one by one.

Paul,

With applications that interface with hardware it often helps "program crashes" experiences to restart (reboot) the computer before judging that the application is no good.

...or did you already try that (it would be worth mentioning)?

Reply   |   Comment by little ricky  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

little ricky, seriously? you re installed Windows from Scratch due to a web server producing a standad 503 Service Unavailable error code? FYI 3 DIGIT NUMBERED Errors reported in a web browser window are generated by the server after your browser has successfully made the inital connection steps correctly. It is EXTREEMLY unlikely that anything on the visitors system would cause a server to generate in this case a 503 Service Unavailable error report. It normally means the server/content managment system on that server has crashed and it needs to be at least restarted/rebooted, restored from last good backup and so on.

Often when a 503 Error code is encountered with a vendors server during a giveaway it is normally due to the server being underpowered and incapable of handling the accesses demanded by the vendor insisting that every giveaway participator head to thier site to get the same identical registration data because they want the hits and or push people towards spamming facebook about their product or harvesting our email addresses. Rather than doing things the way GAOTD team has designed and would have recommended the vendor do and use just the giveawayoftheday.com servers for downloads, promotions and license key distribution using tried and trusted methods.

little ricky, did you check all your home PC for malware etc.?
This because I did encounter something like that. Internet, but no contact. My ISP gave me a warning and gave just a site of their own to check and repair Windows.
Maybe GOTD think, there is something wrong at one PC and block all of them, IP.
Check with Malwarebytes JRT etc etc.
I have read all the other tips on the forum, but did no see this one.
Or ask for another IP-adres with your ISP.

Morris Cox, Do you also get the same message, if your own PC makes to many connections with the website?
The conclusion that it is their fault, is fast.
This because there only a very few people, that have a problem.
If it was their problem, then more people should complain.
Few years ago there were not enough servers for downloading the software. And there were a lot of complaints. It took hours to download a game of 800Mb.
Still there is no answer of checking the own PC about malware etc. Also no report about how many connections the PC asks for connection of the GOTD-site.

Ootje, The moderator on this site is extreemly heavy handed and many posted comments do not see the light of day during the actual giveaway... yours have been held back for several hours in this thread for example, others are edited by a moderator without notice or any justification... just because they can... which is very likely why so many of the best posters of the good old days left because the moderators played around with their posts and they finally had enough of the intelectual abuse and just left the site and the moderators / secret censors to their own fate.

Reply   |   Comment by Ootje  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Ootje, not having access to those statistics you hint at I have no idea on the truth of the assertion or if it was just a coincidence... 503 is a httpd server error not an ISP or other 3rd party interconnecting infrastructure generated error. Any apparent pattern could be down to the timing of access attempts and could also be due to load sharing across a server farm where one server in the farm went down and the load balancing incorrectly routed some users requests to the server cluster with the bad resource server... without doing some illegal hacking it is not possible to investigate and determine the precise cause of that past 503 error event that was reported in one comment that made it through to public viewing. But the hacking would have to be done on the vendors server infrastructure to get access to the server logs to see what fell over... and answering that question is not worth risking my liberty... The UK Computer Misuse Act has wide ranging scope!

At home nothing and at work fine. And same ISP. That I do not understand. The difference I think IP-address.
Can you take one of the home-device to work and test it there? If there is contact, then you know, that that device is OK. And the problem is somewhere else.
Server-problem: why so few complaints about 503 over the world?

The program also appears to install and function on XP, although it only officially supports Vista and above.
The large setup folder includes both Mac and Windows versions.
During installation, it checks on and installs or repairs if necessary Microsoft components such as Visual C++ 2010.
At first I found the registration process baffling, but after reading the comment on #1 "just click on facebook.
shows registration code without facebook login" I quickly received the code when Facebook automatically closed and it appeared on the Dimo webpage linked in the Readme, where I had clicked on the Facebook button: don't close the tab!
It offers quite a lot of options for conversion, both in the way of file types and, through the settings cog, for bit rate, resolution, etc.
I haven't had time yet to assess the conversion speed or quality...

BAW30s, if you had tested it you would have found it fell over when ever you try to convert anything. The vendors built the installer with mismatched ffmpeg executable and DLLs... they also use obsolete 6 year old video effects plugins too, there has been significant bug fixes in the open source plugins they use over the years that Dimo have decided to ignore and continue to use the old buggy versions!

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

TK, TK, You're dead right, it did crash right away when I attempted a conversion. I congratulate you upon finding a work-round as described in your other comments, and am surprised that the developers have not come back with a working version.
Furthermore, after it interfered with Visual C++ 2010 during setup, the system produced related error messages at the next boot.
I may need a system restore after this.

You cant buy a computer with an optical drive any more, its obsolete technology!

My old (3 years!) trusty laptop has a 500GB SSD where the optical drive used to live.
I have a USB optical drive to plug in for the rare occasions when I need to run a disc.

When was the last time I needed to rip a disc..................I cant remember it was so long ago.

Do you have any movies on dvd that you'd like to get off of this "obsolete technology" and store the files on a backup hard drive or on your SSD.
Most of the high end laptops come with optical drives in them as well as the desktop computers too.
The reason that they do not include the optical drive in some laptops today are because the laptop is so thin that there is no virtual room to install them, hence the use of portable USB optical drives.
If you have any blu-ray disks that you regularly watch then copy them to a format that you can watch on your computer or TV and save your blu-ray discs from the possibility of being scratched.

My local libraries have tons of DVDs that are rare and not available broadcast of streaming.

At least you have an external CD drive, good for you.

All tower computers have CD drives available, and many non-lightweight laptops still have CD drives available.

Thomas Gibson, that's not for you to say! If he does not want it does not mean he should just go away! He could stay and help others having trouble and contribute in some other way... or if he feels he has nothing to contribute to todays giveaway ... pop over to the game.giveawayoftheday.com site or the android or iphone sites or just come back tomorrow and see if he can find something to his liking then... There are alot of people with inaccurate perceptions about what is still current tecnology and what is obsolete and slamming the door in the face of those people does not help in re-educating them to the wider reality... like pressed DVD's have a physical potential to be far longer lived than an SSD copy of the DVD VIdeo folders. SSD memory cells degrade over time and eventually will lose their ability to retain the stored data in a known finite period of time. And faster if exposed to ionising radiation, where as DVD both pressed and write once are not susceptable to such degredation if manufactured correctly. Generally we and even GAOTD Team do not demand visitors "go away!" just because of a fairly obnoxious and ill informed post!

Is this a 6 month, 12 month or never ending license?

Gary, just from the looks of it and especially previous offers from Dimo, it's a lifetime license.
