Update: Seems like the uninstaller screwed up some of my players, had to re-install all the common filters. Sad :(..

to #29 you need to click the effect tab

to #31 you cannot determined the output size. this will be different according to the original video size, format and your output setting (e.g. resolution, effects, encoding). if you want a flat 700MB clip while keeping high quality, you will have to split the output results

Well, it seems there are a lot of childish people here...
I see nothing wrong with #1 comment, yet he has -114 No's, but no answer to his question that I can see. I asked a question, comment #31, and I didn't get an answer but I got -7 in the No section??? Actually, most questions didn't get answered.
What is wrong with you people? You are getting free software...good or bad...add a comment that pertains to the software and add an alternative if possible. Don't just click negative on a product or comment, just because you are a whiny 13 year old using your moms PC and wouldn't know good software if it bit you. Not saying this software is any good...I couldn't find any unbiased reviews.

Comment #20. Totally agree with you and I gave you + to bring you up to a -5, LOL. There are a bunch of Homers here trying to find the "anykey" :~)
Comment #13. WOT does not show up for this site...I tried it on 2 PC's...also FlagFox puts the server in the U.S. and the IP Address is shown. That said...I chose not to install this software because a few people made valid points on this software's problems, plus the developer chose not to monitor their product here...so I expect their Help service would be abysmal. I'll stick to FormatFactory until a better solution comes along...so come on cowardly whiners, give me -100 negatives for speaking the truth, LMAO.

#31 zip_up_99 - Welcome to the real world of people, who like to show what they think about software they don´t test themself, but let up to others to do...

It´s faster and smarter to do so... as then you don´t get any bad software on your PC... and you save time... they think !

But the time they use on reading the comments (if they really read anything at all... I doubt) and then put thumb down on those who have most thumbs down...

They could save all more time by just read the comments and then move on if they don´t like the smell of the cake !

Just look at this comment (it has to pass the moderation) I guess it well draw most thumb down...

Sucks

I have never tried a worse software. I mean sure it is a video converter but here is the cons:

VERY SLOW and I am using a fairly new $1000 dollar PC
Horrible converting (I tried converting a video and the quality was literary a million times worse)
ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE

My hint to you DONT GET IT!!!!

Wow! When I wrote this there was only 1 comment and he got -86 in response. 75% or 365 negative for this software without leaving comments as to why it is good or bad... Methinks somebody just likes to hit the No and thumbs down rating.

At present, I use FormatFactory which is free to convert my videos, and I find it pretty good as long as you play with the settings. I haven't found a converter that will allow me to set my DVD movie conversion to a flat 700MB. I don't know if anyone here remembers and misses AXXO's movie torrents?
Anyhow can this software do this? Hopefully I won't get a bunch of negative responses for asking a legitimate question as did the 1st poster. The software developers will hopefully respond with their expertise as well. Thanks folks and GAOTD.

Installed and registered without problems. Haven't tried it yet but looks good. I always install audio and video conversion programs because the more you have, the more likely that at least one of them will support the file type you need to convert to or from.

Installed OK - put your (or any) name in the License Name. I can't see the promised "trim and crop" :-/ which means it won't be of any use to me.

To convert images, video and music I use "Format Factory". It's pretty comprehensive and it's free. To solve the problem of PAL/NTSC when ripping DVDs I use "DVD Shrink". Then I burn the DVD as region free in "Ashampoo" burning suite.

I've been using all three of these programs for years and they haven't let me down yet.

Let me start of by saying, skip this one.

W7, x86.

OLD?
Archive is from May 2011, & files within even earlier, March.
And with MANY much older, like QuickTime, 2009 & Real, 2006.

Registration no-brainer with the given key, use any name.
After registration, no indication that it is registered (other then no prompt on startup).

Window is not realizable.

Looks like it will handle QuickTime & Real formats itself (as in you don't need to download/install QT/Real), though note the above dates.

Cannot drag & drop a video into the window. Must use the "Add videe
files" button (& file picker).

Video/Audio "quality" only has settings like; "highest, higher, normal, low, lowest".

Whatever "help" there may be, none is included with the program (i.e. online only).

Installation "registers" a number of files. (Codecs, I suppose. Don't
know how many?)

---

Attempt to add an .flv:

"Our software dont' support this video file, maybe the file has broken"

(Their wording/spelling, not mine.)


Attempts to Add *ANY* file fails with the same message.

Avoid.

I do wish that the people who rate (thumbs up OR down) these pgms would at least leave a comment explaining their opinon! This would give the rest of us a better insight as to whether we should give it a try. Even with all the negative ratings I'll try it, Will update later to give my opinon.Thanx GAOTD.

Skip Odin Video Converter -- if you need something now, there's a new version of ffmpeg out, listed on the front page at videohelp.com, & on the ffmpeg page you get when you click the link, quite a few front ends are listed.

Odin Video Converter is older, slower code, & rather than being for the most part self-contained, or even portable like many similar converters on GOTD, it has the potential to break video handling on your PC/laptop. That said, If it does break something, after uninstall it looks like re-installing any broken apps, codecs etc. should *probably* get things working. If you have ffdshow, Quicktime, &/or Real installed, I'd also suggest re-installing them to be safe.

Can this convert VRO files (from my DVD Camcorder). If yes I will definitely try it. To my knowledge there is freeware that converts VRO file properly. Thanks.

This might just be me, but this software has diffrent profile categories, like mp4, xbox and so on. But it seems when I pick one of the sub profiles, it picks one at random, and there seems to be no way to change that. Not sure if this software is broken or not supporting Vista. But since I can not pick what to do, this is no keeper for me.

Don't waste your time with this. I downloaded it well enough. When I tried to convert various different video formats it kept stopping and coming up with errors, then made me terminate the program. The publishers even have the nerve to ask for money for something that doesn't work. It's well meaning but doesn't work and sadly a peice of crap. Oh well. Time to find a another one.

Installs and seems to work OK on Win7 x64. Odin GUI seems to follow the pattern for video converters.

Despite various Idea Informer comments above it works with a wide variety of video formats including AVI and outputs to standard formats of different quality too. (A case of RTFP).

Settings for highest to lowest quality within each of those (to adjust compression rates??) seem excessive. Are they actually going be very useful.

I would have liked to have FLAC as an audio input/output option (from HQ Music Videos) but OGG is included.

Help isn't very much help at all. A simple introductory wizard would be a useful addition. As for clicking the information button....


Useability:
At present, whilst a conversion is running you can't do anything else useful with the program (Although you can run multiple instances). This seems daft. It would, for example, be helpful to add the next files you want to convert to the batch list (which continues when the current file finishes).

For the list of video profiles, it would be useful to have a set of, say 6, favourites (based on past use)at the top of the list. I'm probably only ever going to use a handful of the input options so why hunt through the whole list.

Given that each video profile comes with a range of options for video size/quality etc, it would be helpful to be able to store user preferences for these (even just defaulting to last used).

Minimize to tray and pop-up a message when a file/batch is completed.

Add option settings to exit the program/turn off PC when the batch of files has finished conversion.

Add history setting for save folders. I would be using the same folders on a regular basis but keeping PSP stuff separate from Zune.

Keep a log of processed files in order to make it easy to play that compressed wedding video you converted 23 months ago.

Given the comments that there are lots of (freeware) apps out there that do the same thing what features that are included in/missing from others could usefully be added to Odin that would make it useful to you.

Actually, the one feature it does offer which doesn't work for me with either input or output files, before, during or after processing is the tiddly preview screen. No other mentions of this (yet) so probably my machine, rather anything than CUDA related.

hello, IMHO the GUI is terrible, hardly legible, I am confused here, this is a version 5.4.2, website is about 6.5.3; surely they do not want feedback of such an obsolete outdated version?? also, according to the exe's properties this was called Blue-Ray ripper, riddle-me-!?
