It is really just a compression and media player program with the ability to encrypt with a password. You can do the EXACT same thing using WinRAR or such. The main difference is you are required to use their own player with this program, whereas, with something like WinRAR, you can create a self-extracting EXE file that is password protected and use your OS's default media player program. It's really not even worth the "FREE" price. Nothing special. Uninstalled.

So what is the purpose of this? If I want to share a video file then why would I lock it and password protect it? I can email the video file along with the password but again, no one else can see it other than the person I am sharing with. Or can I upload it to YouTube or Facebook and email the password to my friends so they can view it? Or just maybe I can upload the video to my one drive and share it with whoever I want.

A reason why this type of software is a bad idea.... if one gets used to executing .exe executable files to view a movie it makes it far more likely you will accidentally open an unsolicted executable claiming to be a video of some topic of possible interest and oh dear you have just been ransomwared... or otherwise pwned. Most reputable email clients *should* prohibit the reception of an executable file attachment.

It also restricts the viewing of the video to the windows x86 compatible environments locking out android/iOS/linux and every other platform as recipiants. If you want to digitally control access to your media use an existing DRM platform. But know that almost all DRM systems have been hacked in some way shape or form even if only by screen and sound output capture and re-encoding so don't expect 100% security as there is no such thing with DRM and certainly not with this product either. Even Thundersofts GEM players rendering of encrypted video and audio can be captured by most games screen recoding software.

Seems to work nicely with exe-files at least :-)

Please disclose the encryption strength. Please enable a HELP feature that shows ABOUT with License info. In the downloaded version, there is NO way to enter the license key..Cannot display in any other viewer, either. All files in a session get packed into a single file, with the files displayed on the right hand side. Very spartan, almost weird, user interface. e.g., finding files with Explorer is not reliable. Seems buggy, to say the least. May keep trying, but I am not encouraged.

I don't understand the use of this software, is it for companies and/or web hosting?
I'm just one person, all my videos go straight to the cloud or Youtube.

No such thing of a password protection unless you archive with RAR or 7zip your video file with a password. Thank you.

To all those down-voters: Terry does have a point here!

Converting a media file into an exe doesn't seem to be a good idea.
Here's why:

First, your virus protection might wreak havoc. Second, anybody should be really suspicious dealing with files ending in exe that doesn't represent entry points of programs. Third, it does not make sense to integrate a video player in every video file and forth, nobody needs a new container named GEM.

Terry, That is true for the secure transit but once the video file has been extracted using the correct passphrase, in order to be played by an authorised recipient, it is no longer protected and can be freely redistributed or edited to make a fake news meme with it.

The setup readme includes a serial number and says register in the top right of the software, yet there is no registration link available. So how does one input the registration code that is sent?

Gary, it's there for me....registered fine....on the first screen before launching the program
