Installed it twice, but it would not run on Windows 8.1.
The default installation directory in Program Files is too generic, being labeled only as "VideoConverter".
With so many video converters out there, a Tenorshare component of the directory name would be helpful.
However, since the program won't run, that is a moot point.
It's on the way to being uninstalled.
Thanks, but no thanks.

One item in the description that can be false depending upon user settings: the commonly-used video encoding schemes all lose data. Therefore, if the software must re-do the compression scheme, quality loss is a certainty. The only exceptions are some rarely-used "lossless" codecs that result in huge files. (when used upon animation, those lossless codecs result in 30+ Gigabytes for a 1/2 hour video - a saving of 75% over storing the 38,400 "cell" images individually as 24-bit RGB in TIFF files)

Where this loss first becomes visible is in sharp edges - they wind up getting blurred as if out of focus.

Hi,

I have a trouble with this program. Although i'm using the Sony PSP profile and the conversion seems to go without problems, the PSP
doesn't recognize the converted file. It shows as "unsupported" on PSP. I have Aiseesoft Media Converter which is quite old, but the conversion works with that.

I tried several times with different files and the results are always the same. The file size seems slightly smaller even with high quality setting (Than on Aiseesoft Media Converter) so i would like to get this working if that's possible!

The psp i have is the 3000 slim (with umd drive).

You may have to adjust the settings in todays offering for PSP to match the settings of the Aiseesoft Media Converter PSP to have it work the same.

After using Handbrake to crunch Canon camcorder MP4 video for Android and iPhone viewing via Dropbox.
Tenorshare’s ability to easily cut before crunching is appreciated,
but selecting a video for conversion AFTER setting a cut cancels the cut selection.
Most output format options fail to preserve (16x9) aspect ratio.

Handbrake easily supports queuing multiple transcoding tasks;
Tenorshare should add similar support, particularly given how much slower it works (~2x).

Multiple attempts to extract a video scene which spanned the end of one MP4 file and the beginning of another
resulted in an acceptable join, but truncated several seconds at the end. I suppose that cutting several seconds beyond that
wanted might yield intended results; instead, VLC + Handbrake + My MP4Box GUI work without fiddling.

This is my first download from GOTD. I missed out on previous video editor offers, so thought I'd give this a try. I was actually looking for a video trimmer. This does have trim functionality, but there doesn't appear to be any way to easily splice a single file into multiple clips and then carry out a single merge. Only way I can think of doing it is to copy the original file several times and then add each to the processing window, carry out a single trim per file copy and then do a convert. Unless anyone else can see an option I'm missing? Most other software providers allow you to create multiple copies of the same file internally.

Hello, Newbie here... I am looking for a program that can convert the Hi-8 files from a Canon camcorder (attached to the laptop) to a more up-to-date, preservable file format that can be edited, connected, and safely saved. Is this something your product can do, and can my Dell Inspiron N5110 Dual Core, i5, Win 7 64-bit, 500 gig HDD, 6 gig RAM, laptop do the job? Plenty of HDD space available (over 350 gig free). Or am I looking for a different type of software to tackle this type of job; and if so, does anyone have any favorites or brands to recommend? I feel like I am running out of time to get these family home videos converted, and can't afford to pay to have it done for me. Thanks in advance peeps!

Hi-8 is an analog video format (with digital audio).
You do not mention the model of Canon camcorder,
but if that camcorder video is already able to be viewed on the laptop,
then some digital conversion is taking place.
If you can find any of those files on the laptop,
then try dragging one to this program.
MP4 with H.265 is very common and should be supported for a long time.

If you have a DVR -- copy the videos their first -- then transfer to DVD's -- use software to edit the videos, or this one to convert to the format you like. High quality videos take up a lot of harddrive space. so work with one video at a time. I use MoviePlus and Cyberlink Powerdirector 12, and I have 4000 Gigabytes of HDD space in two 2 terabytes hard drives. Remember an hour of analog video will take at least an hour to copy, but once in DVD format you can easily use digital's speed.

In case it helps...

Since some folks were having problems running the Tenorshare Video Converter I monitored the installation & running 1st in a win7 XP Mode VM, then in a win10 Tech Prev VM. The install process is pretty clean, with new files confined to the program's folder -- most of the new registry entries are for the Trolltech cache, which you get whenever one of these apps uses the QT code libraries. There is/was an apparent bug running the converter in the XP VM, with CPU usage almost maxed when the program was idle -- this was not the case in win10, though it still used a few percentage points [also while idle]. To try & make sure there wasn't something wrong with the XP VM I went through the same monitoring process with another video converter that's being given away elsewhere, & everything worked normally.

Some comments talk about the Microsoft C/C++ runtimes... Many apps add a copy of these runtimes to a sub-folder in Windows\WinSxS\ -- that's one reason it might be the largest, most disk space gobbling folder in your Windows install. There are several versions of these runtime files, & you likely have more than one copy of each installed. Alternatively some apps might add a copy of these runtime files to Windows/System32, while some like today's GOTD include a copy in their program folder. In both VMs the Tenorshare Video Converter used one of the already installed runtimes, e.g. msvcp90.dll & msvcr90.dll in XP.

-----

"The GOTD-program did not work on the normal Win7-64 with enough power/video/mem and codec’s etc. It did work in a virtual Win7-64 with 27Mb video, 4Gb mem and 2 CPU. No extra codec’s, etc."

These converters normally don't access, use, or know about any video codecs or encoders already installed in Windows, & the Tenorshare Video Converter was/is no exception. It does use Direct X however, & that **may** be where problems are? If Windows is forced to handle DX in software it uses a LOT more CPU, which *might* be what was happening in my XP Mode VM -- the win10 VM is VBox, with better DX emulation. **If** that is the case, it might even be that the DX version on some systems is too new, e.g. more than one gamer has had to install the older DX 9 because some games just wouldn't work with only the newer version(s) installed.

"My reason for initially attempting to go to MKV was because of a very useful site that has tools to manipulate this container, in my case interested in subtitles..."

You might want to check out videohelp.com for a few tools, GUIs etc. that work with MKVToolNix -- great tool itself BTW.

RE: Subs, if it interests anyone at all, it seems that the most universal method currently is to have the subs or captioning in a .srt file in the same folder as & with the same name as the video file. It's handy because the player will render the text at the appropriate size & resolution for the display, you can turn subtitle display on/off, & many more players will work with .srt files than will work with embedded captioning or subs.

SubtitleEdit can OCR graphics-based subs [e.g. DVD & Blu-Ray], while ccextractor can strip embedded CC [text] into .srt files. You might also find .srt files for download. Do note however they may be (C) where you live, & so subject to whatever laws &/or regulations, same as video content.

"Didn’t see that it converts WTV files. It does MTS’s (for those with OTA digital boxes that allow external hard drive recordings. Using WMC and a ATI wonder card to capture OTA tv also but I want to convert them to a format that can be watched on Roku, and the rest of the house, not just from the PC to Xbox. "

Windows itself includes a tool to convert from .wtv to Windows DVRMS format. Very basically the difference is WTV is run through a separate control to check for & handle DRM. Most digital OTA [Over The Air broadcast] in the US is HD, & in my experience most includes a flag in the file setting DRM on. You might also find that the flag is not set when using an antennae, but set using cable as source. When Windows Media Center spots that flag it adds DRM to the WTV file it records, restricting where you can play it back, & preventing you from converting or transcoding it to something else.

As far as streaming that recorded content to the rest of your home, I'd suggest starting by looking at what you have, e.g. using MediaInfo on the files, then hitting up the forums at sites like videohelp.com &/or the AVS forums to see what works for others. How you plan to stream it also matters -- if you're going to use WiFi bandwidth [bit rate] will be restricted, & the same for some hardware players. You also might want to look at other media center apps, e.g. GBPVR or Tversity.

Thanks Mike. I tested the DRM on various OTA programs and so far, no issues. I get around 35 digital channels. Just testing the waters for dumping most of my cable or all. I'm waiting for a 4 channel Silicon Dust recorder that runs off a cable card and can record to an external HD, and be streamed to various devices, wired or wifi. I already can "share" my WMC files thru my kids 360 or XB1 but I rather just convert the files so I can have a standard to watch on any of my wifi boxes or smart TV's. I have a WDMycloud (4tb) and a Netgear NAS box with 12tb that are my in home and mobile media services. The rig I'm experimenting with is repurposed tower that is being a OTA media server. I'm trying to just find a meeting point that allows me to time shift without having to have different solutions for different situations. I've pretty much found it but I need to make my WTV files accessible over the network to non-pc/media center restrictions. Again, thanks for you input. It helps me narrow down my directions. If it matters, I'm running all this on my network which revolves around my Asus RT-66AC. I'm thinking about bumping it up to the new AC3200 so I can use a dedicated 5ghz channel to media streaming only. 1 for gaming and the 2.4ghz for anything that's not 802.11ac. Regards

I experienced the same problem with the installation as apparently others in that it appears to install fine but will not run. Or rather it shows up as running in the task manager but that's it. Oddly none of the other video converters that I have encountered on this site have had this issue and my hardware is fully capable of running the heavy weight photo and video programs without a hiccup so I'm at a loss. The MS Visual C++ version on my system is also up to date so that's not the problem. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to continue trying to troubleshoot the issue so I guess I'm going to have to pass trying out the offer today. Thank you Tenorshare for letting folks try out your program and thank you Giveaway of the Day folks for your efforts.

As MR G use to say, this a saturated market. Didn't see that it converts WTV files. It does MTS's (for those with OTA digital boxes that allow external hard drive recordings. Using WMC and a ATI wonder card to capture OTA tv also but I want to convert them to a format that can be watched on Roku, and the rest of the house, not just from the PC to Xbox.

So, without even testing this package, as I'm sure it works as advertised as per other posts, can you or why can't you add conversions of .WTV files to one of other formats, or did I miss that on your web page?

I installed today's program under both of my physical partitions Win10 & Win 8.1.2 & had time to test program (as well as one suggested by #5) and they both proved great in ripping to MP4 (that is how I transfer all my movies) & in both partitions I received great results. Both programs today are KEEPERS for me & 2 thumbs up!!

Installed and registered without problems and opened up to a simple interface.

On adding a file found that the information about it was in the most idiotic and stupid washed out grey text I have ever had the misfortune to see, NOT.
For Gods sake, why present information and then make it impossible to view in the name of fashion!!!!
Trying to make Windows programs as visually attractive as those of Apple is quite difficult and if you are going to attempt to emulate them visually attempt to do it also with functionality, an area where they excel.

Decided to test by putting into an MKV file with a few different formats and it was a total failure, all I got was a grey screen, more success converting to MP4 file.

When selecting where to save or open files you seem to have built their own little file browser which will not accept right clicks in the normal manner, limiting its functionality!

Have used this company's software before with success, however this latest offering is one the most abysmal pieces of software I have seen in a long time. Don't waste your time!

My reason for initially attempting to go to MKV was because of a very useful site that has tools to manipulate this container, in my case interested in subtitles.

The GOTD-program did not work on the normal Win7-64 with enough power/video/mem and codec's etc.
It did work in a virtual Win7-64 with 27Mb video, 4Gb mem and 2 CPU.
No extra codec's, etc.

The only strange thing was a strange output path:

Maybe that causes a fault. The program took 25% CPU-power.
Maybe adjust a INI-file ?

Re Comment #3 (program will not run).
Windows 7 Pro SPi 32-bit.
I have the same problem; also tried an install with my AV (Trend Micro) disabled, and running as administrator.
I have 4 versions of Microsoft C++ (2005, 2008, 2010, 2012) installed on my machine, so that is not the problem.
Would appreciate any help.

Download and installed on Win7/64 without problem.

Initial impression is of clean interface similar to other convertors.

Drag and drop of file to be converted didn't work for me and the file browsing interface isn't that friendly as doesn't list libraries, which is how I like to locate my media files, so have to find files through drive letter. Clicking on the file doesn't appear to immediately import the file to the workspace which is a little disconcerting.

I converted a HD MP4 movie (1.3mb) to .avi at original resolution and normal quality (1.4mb) which took about 10 minutes.

The converted file was very pixelated and I won't be keeping the file and will try again at high quality and hope for a better result.

Don't like the adding of the companies name to the end of the converted file, it means I would have to then manually re-name each file after conversion to remove it. I couldn't see any option to turn this off.

I cannot see any advantages over other converters I already have and with the drag and drop problem and the re-naming issue I will not be keeping todays offering.

It's the second video converter I downloaded from GOTD.The UI of Tenorshare is clean and intuitive. I got a shooting video *m2ts from my Canon Vixia HF S21 and converted to MP4 for playback on my PC, the quality is good. Hmmmm,I also like my WinX Video Converter Deluxe V5.5.3 - 4K video converter that grabbed from GOTD, and 83X real time converting speed is hitherto the fastest video converter I've used. So I'll keep both of them, thx GOTD!

My fine tuned Win 7 machine has done quite nicely all these years without ‘Ms. Visual C++’. Every other video software downloaded from GOTD has installed correctly. Not this one. After uninstalling I see many files will be deleted on a restart. Why? There is an open file being used. Checking the Task Manager there are 6 instances of Video Converter running in the background. I have never seen this before from video software installations.

This Video Converter has decent features and functionality, on top of conversion tasks you can merge videos together and can perform additional tasks like trimming, crop, add text or picture watermarks as well as subtitles. There are many mobile devices (SONY, htc, etc.) you can export to including PlayStation and X-Box.

What I found annoying is the fact that you need to set the output directory in the video editing window and not in the main window of the interface, which, as I said, is not a deal breaker at all considering what this converter can do.

The conversion itself from my test video was faster than Any MP4 Converter, without quality loss. At $49 it's probably slightly overprized, but still acceptable.

I give this little power tool a thumbs up with my Thanks to GOTD and Tenorshare.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. A clean install, very few registry changes:19.

I just installed to see, whether this is is exactly the same version and to watch the installation process. It is the same software, the DLL are mostly from November 013, some have changes with the version 5 on July 2014. No need from my side for a new test, read my last comment, if you are interested.
