Too heavy on the pc :( I guess I'll stay with the better free alternatives. There are soooo many, its actually flooded. And no HEVC? That's like the future people! You better get on the bandwagon....soon!

Ran well on my 32 bit XP, but failed to run on my AMD quad core Win 8.1 x64. Installed but did not run correctly, took up 25% of computer resources, and each attempt to run it only caused an additional video converter 32 bit program to run in the background.

frustrating app. Was using it to trim videos. It inaccurately does this a few frames away from where you place the markers, or just caches the last settings and trims a irrelevant part of the file- Uninstalling in disgust!

Good freeware alternative: Iwisoft Free Video Converter

Others have mentioned Freemake Video Converter. It's not half bad, but be careful when installing it that you don't get stuck with unnecessary adware.

Downloaded and installed without any problems, opened up to a simple interface.
My first conversion attempt failed, a simple AVI file converted to a black screen in VLC.
Nearly all these video converters are look-a-likes almost as if everyone is using the same basic program with different interfaces.

None I have found are as useful as a very simple and FREE video converter available at the following link.
http://www.moo0.com/?top=http://www.moo0.com/software/VideoConverter/

It can convert to X264 and a really useful function is the ability to just convert a short snippet, the snippets can be from the start, middle or end to a length in time of your choosing. This gives you the ability to view what the output video will look like without doing a full conversion.
It has a number of useful functions regarding the output size and frankly I find it much better than most of the paid video converters.

#7: "H265 will be the in thing to add to the latest converters, so would need to be in such a paid product to appeal more over others."

Maybe... Maybe it's the future, maybe it's not, but it's too early to say for sure. As the successor to H.264 [AVC], H.265 offers better compression for smaller files, but at the cost of increased encoding/decoding requirements. It'll be good for 4k, but will you adopt 4k, & if so, when? According to the Wikipedia article on H.264: " The final drafting work on the first version of the standard was completed in May 2003", yet widespread adoption only happened in the last few years. Their article on H.265 says: "The first version of the standard was completed and published in early 2013. The second version of the standard was completed in July 2014, and is expected to be published in late 2014"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Efficiency_Video_Coding
.
H.265 has been added to ffmpeg, so it'll show up in most apps using ffmpeg eventually, & it's started to show up in software like the Simple x264 Launcher v2, but for now for most people I think it's still a bit of an oddity, like 4k video. If 3D had taken off as hoped & planned by the TV industry, then the push to 4k & H.265 might have been far stronger than it has been, but it didn't. Once [& IF] most of the tablets & cells *in peoples' hands* use H.264 the way they use H.264/AVC today, it'll be common, but until then I'd guess that most people will have no idea why they would ever want or need it.

#2: "...No output-profils for video-editors (promised on their website)"

Ideally you Don't Convert video before you import it into your video editing software -- the main reason to do that is if your editing software won't accept your video as-is. Every time you re-encode video you'll lose a [hopefully just a little] bit of quality, so the best solution if your editor won't accept your files, is to get better editing software. When that's not possible and you have to encode an intermediate video file, encode it to a lossless format so you lose the bare minimum. Unfortunately that means you don't want to use Any ffmpeg-based converter, because they do not offer a lossless format.

That said, video files in a lossless or near lossless format are often huge [e.g. hundreds of GB for 1080p] -- if you can't handle that due to hardware limitations, mpg2 at the highest bit rate the software allows may be the best alternative.

* * *

#3: "A claim 30X faster with NVIDIA® CUDATM, AMD and Intel Core. could not be verified. 30 times faster compared with??? There are no information within the program (settings) whether this acceleration is used or not. In my test the conversion speed is as always with other programs."

If you or anyone else wants to verify if transcoding or converting video uses your graphics hardware, download & run the free & portable GPU-Z software -- it will show you if the GPU is doing anything, similar to the way Task Mgr. can show you how hard your CPU is working.

Speed transcoding is effected by the size of the input & output video frames, because all that data has to be read, then written, which means that how fast your system can read & write that data from/to your hard drive(s) matters as well. The job will take less time than using a faster rather than slower CPU of course, but if you look at the video-related benchmarks in CPU reviews, you'll see that the CPU's frequency or speed isn't all that matters.

Graphics processors [the GPU] function differently than CPUs, so can do certain things faster. Do note that when it comes to video encoding &/or conversion, that doesn't mean better by any means -- the best you can hope for is the same quality you can achieve using your CPU alone. So there are two basic approaches -- go purely for speed, with quality taking a back seat, or try to divide the work up between the CPU & the GPU, using the GPU only where it shines. Going the 2nd route can be incredibly tricky, and mileage varies to say the least, being based on your hardware, the software you've got installed, & the developers' code.

There are apps [Cyberlink's Expresso comes to mind] that focus purely on speed, using the GPU as much as possible converting video, & when it comes to speed, assuming your graphics hardware cooperates, these ffmpeg converters can't touch them. If however you want to focus purely on quality, speed goes out the window, as software usually does more calculations over multiple passes. That takes too much time for most people, so again these converters compromise, seeking out some middle ground. Do check the final quality carefully though, & it doesn't hurt to check the encoded file's specs with the free Media Info either -- in the race to beat the competition it's not unheard of for a converter's developer(s) to set the quality levels very low, &/or skip some encoder features that increase quality, both because they can speed up encoding.

#6: "Thanks GOTD for this offer. But I don’t understand why paid video converter tools’ necessary as u can find so many free alternatives,just say Handbrake. Besides, many merchants also provides free converters too, for example:
Freemake Free video converter... Any video converter... Winx free video converter... and so on."

.
1st off, as is often pointed out, there is no shopping cart or checkouts here at GOTD. ;)

2nd, as you pointed out there are several free apps... Why? Why not just one free video converter? If they were all the same, why would anyone in their right mind bother writing a 2nd when the 1st does everything that could be hoped for?

Instead it's the same as coffee or tea or, well, candy bars -- you can take whatever or you can have favorite brands, it's up to you, but there are most always differences.

Thanks for this offer. Seems good at what it does.
But why no HTML5 output option?

(And why do none of the common video convertors offer html5 as an option? It's not as though it can any longer be considered new.)

I REALLY wish authors of programs (or editors, or developers, etc) would GET the idea - that 80% of the money that will BUY their product will come eventually from a "baby-boomer" like myself - I REALLY WANT TO SEE - some sort of "word - type" pull-down menu, so I am NOT - hunting & PECKING for an hour - looking for any of the "FANTASTIC" stuff you said was available. Also, where is the H265 drivers, or aren't there any? Thanks everyone, I will spend a little more time pecking, but not much more. Have a great Sunday GAOTD, as always, I LOVE the first part of my day, once more. T.

One reason to take this offering over some freeware video converter is because often they come with malware or they try to change your search engine. I got some software one time that couldn't be uninstalled. You can trust GOTD to not give you crapware!

Win 7 Ult x64 - It seized a large % of my CPU whilst NOT loading & starting up.

It never loaded anything to my screen & had to do the "three-finger salute" to kill off the CPU seizure - I tried twice - and then dumped the program.

I'll NOT be trying it again!

Two thumbs down for this program!!

Seems a good, quick converter. Oddly, I tried this with a 109MB Go-Pro MP4 file at the default settings. Compressed file down to a respectable 24MB but only the audio played back through the default Windows Media Player (black screen). I had to play back with VLC to see video.

Conversion to DVD can be selected, but the conversion from mp4 stops immediately with an undefined error sign at the file. Although the convertion to VOB works but results only into .mpeg-2 (not .VOB).

Tested this against my usual converters.

I found it far slower than the more GPU optimised converters and even slower than some freebies without it.

The default output folder was a drive that didn't even exist.

The drive/folder navigation has a very out of date interface.

Reasonable choice of output options and settings.

H265 will be the in thing to add to the latest converters, so would need to be in such a paid product to appeal more over others.

All in all, not one that stands out at all I'm afraid and rather disappointing.

Format factory and also Gom Converter can do this for free. Unnecessary going after paid version when freebies can do exactly the same.

Installed and self registered without problems on a WIn 8.1.2 Pro 64 bit system. A clean install without any other software.

A Chinese company with address in China F11, Baoli Building, Nanhai Boulevard, Nanshan District, Shenzhen, Guangdong P.R.China 518057 and an US address.

This claim seems to be realistic: Users of Tenorshare Video Converter Surpasses 24,856 Worldwide. Other companies claim to have sold millions...

A clear structured interface opens, you choose your media file and the target format. In the settings you change switch between high quality, standard and small size.

A claim 30X faster with NVIDIA® CUDATM, AMD and Intel Core. could not be verified. 30 times faster compared with??? There are no information within the program (settings) whether this acceleration is used or not. In my test the conversion speed is as always with other programs.

I selected a 33 sec MP4 Full HD video with 64 MByte and converted it a 9,9 Mbyte MKV video with the same resolution 1920x1080. The conversion was done within one minute.

If you have selected your input you can trim, crop, watermark or add a subtitle file.

This is done without problems, works as it should.

I have uploaded the result, so you can see the quality of the file. I took a video with very fine structures.

One of the many video converters. If you should not have any up to now, why not take this?

Uninstalled via reboot. I do not collect video converters like stamps.

Ah ha, another video converter!!

Installed and registered on Win7-64bit without any problems. It looks like HD Video Converter Factory Pro 7.0 from the appearance.
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/hd-video-converter-factory-pro-7-0/

For video converters, they always have mostly similar functions. So I will select the right one for stability and compatibility. I will keep HD Video Converter Factory Pro 7.0 since it also used as a video downloader :)
