Dozens of VID Conv FOR FREE - I'd like to see one that you can "cut, clip, trim, etc" bits and pieces OUT....I've probably got 6-8 in the system and use exactly ONE to convert almost anything BUT can't cut out bad spots or some scene...Had one some time back ya could...but ONLY ONE "cut"...it went to the Recycle bin...
Again for a converter, there are dozens out there FREE...some really good, some really "pitiful"
Look around...you can find a good one...This wasn't it........

It is a 1 year limited usage. The software is lousy. It also seems impossible to "activate". The idea seems to be a lure to buy all the other 7 or 8 other "features" that are not allowed to run but which are always displayed anyway. It is a terrible mess of lousy programming code resulting in a confusing User Interface. Uninstalled immediately. Used Regseeker and found many remnant items in Registry even after Revo Uninstall.

For a program to be offered at this price it would need to offer something that free programs don't.
I don't see anything here that is not available for free so will pass on today's offer
Thanks Giveawayoftheday and Sothink

Wow a video converter with inactive features, pretty cheap nit giving the full program imo, waste of time.

I don't like software like this that requires you to load a module with a bunch of choices that aren't available unless you purchase them. I would give this a try but it gives me the impression that I am installing a somewhat disabled program. If this were a standalone program I'd give it a try, or at the very least have the extra option of purchasing the various programs incorporated into a single hidden context menu to where you don't have to look at what you don't get from the start.

Thanks for the offer "SoTHINK", but I thought about it and decided I'll pass on it.

Thoughtful
Purely FWIW, I think it's likely simpler to write, manage, & distribute these sorts of apps, that are a sort of a swiss army knife for conversions, but they might also work well as a selling tool, which is no doubt why some software companies are moving to this approach, e.g. DVDFab, Leawo etc.

I understand your point, and I do realize that is is easier FOR THE SELLER to MANAGE and DISTRIBUTE their software in the manner of a multi-faced screen. The SELLER & DEVELOPERS ARE TRYING TO SELL TO ME & OTHERS Who don't like this approach. As a general rule if you are going to sell or market something to the public then first you need their approval, and the way to get that is to not spam their screen all at once with multiple offerings. Smart business move would be to try and SELL the people what they wont, instead of offering them what they don't want.

This is also the reason I have stopped using DVDFab and Leawo products altogether also. When a software has multiple functions especially those that you don't and can't use then that means 99% of the time that it put's multiple claws into your operating system and hidden services hampering the operation of your PC in SOME CASES in the long haul and usage of your PC "I SUSPECT IN MY OPINION".

I would compare this to downloading an operating system to run 1 program on my operating system. It just doesn't make sense for the end user in my opinion.

Thanks for the offering to those offering this, but like I said I'll pass on installing this one.

And BTW : TO SOTHINK : "Please don't take my opinion as harsh, I'm being brutally honest, I don't have to be, I don't have to say anything, but I have read a few comments from people who don't have a problem with the interface and multi-offerings" This is why I am replying, to convey a message and let you know that your bottom line "Selling" "Not Giveaway" is being seriously hampered and hurt especially trying to market your product in this manner.

These are my opinions SOTHINK, take them or leave them, but like my name says : I am simply being "Thoughtful"........

Good software, but I removed it from my system as a result of Sothink's distribution approach. Nobody wants to have in their system a software that load up with 10 icons showing trial and only 1 icon functional. Sothink, if you want to get serious you would create a stand alone application or an option to remove all those inactive icons. I bet many others will choose to remove based on that fact alone.

This converter is NOT worth the space ob HD!

Tried ad got ERROR!

The MAX resolution is to low (384 x 240) should be at least 720 x 540!I have better ones..

Reply   |   Comment by +-  –  10 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+33)

If the max resolution is only 384 x 240 I'm not even going to try it. The software I'm using at the moment has a max of 720 and although it is good in what it actually DOES it's a nightmare with conversions being rejected so I dread to think what this would be like.
It certainly would not be good value at $56.99.

What about the audio conversion? Can anyone say what the highest bit rate is? I convert a lot of wav files so would be looking for something around the 320 mark.

If it helps at all, with audio & video the format & encoding settings are super important. That stuff can also be confusing, so apps like Sothink Video Converter put together a lot of device-specific profiles, which are basically the frame size(s), format(s), & encoder settings that will work with the target device. I think all video converters will go up to 1080p, depending on the profile or preset, while some have profiles that let you use whatever you want, e.g. go to 4k etc.

For the audio conversions colin mentions, formats are just as important. Video-centric apps like Sothink Video Converter or ffmpeg itself work pretty well with AC3 & DTS audio, but if you're not dealing with those, you're better off looking at audio-centric apps. They can offer stuff like dithering, e.g. if you're converting 48 to 44.1 sample rates, &/or normalization based on perceived levels rather than peak, often higher quality etc...

AH - didn't get that far to find out MAX....dumped it before I found that "flaw".
If I wanted to watch something on a midget screen guess that wouldn't matter.....
Shame on "someone".....that's prehistoric software I presume.........hee-hee

Almost all of these converters use the same open-source libraries and codecs. The only difference between them is the user interface and how many libraries/formats are included and which versions of the libraries.

This product offers profiles, which are presets for conversion that include a video/audio format and quality that are supported by the target device.

There are so many free video converters around, that paid ones really leave me disinterested.

See for example : Best Free Audio-Video Format Conversion Program.

Is a bad advice. Is not free.

I am afraid you are confused, because the link by Harry M gives you a CHOICE of available conversion freeware.
Therefore his advice is good, and yours is wrong.

Cheers,

Harry M
You're correct Harry, but FWIW I'd recommend videohelp.com for apps listing & links as well as reviews, guides, forums etc. The main difference between free & paid apps is that something like today's GOTD is [sometimes much] easier to learn & use, mainly because many of the free & open source converters & encoders give more options, & you're often on your own to research & figure those out.

A 2ndary difference is that the free or open source video converters often use the latest versions of x-264, x-265, &/or ffmpeg. That can be a double edged sword -- the newer code may be better or have unexpected bugs -- so something like Sothink Video Converter may on occasion be more reliable.
