Alleged works with XP.
Lifetime licence.
Pre-activated, no complicated download.
But the one MP4 that I wish to convert for a special reason,
when I tried, "There was an error while trying to convert".
The file has often been used and works well.
A disappointment.

I sort of find this useless in that you cannot control the video once converted but simply play it.

jack flash, I Agree Jack! The first question I had/have was Why would I want/need to convert a Video to an .exe?

JonE,
To stop someone from altering your video. Once in exe format you can't load the file into a video editor.

Brian,
well it makes it slightly more difficult, but there are several ways of ripping it, including screen capture

In todays world of hacking, sending an executable file, even with good intentions, will be flagged and blocked by most if not all anti-virus programs which you should have to protect your system.

Tester, you may be able to avoid that problem by packing the executable file into a zipped one,
it might even work better, if you firstly rename the "exe" extension for transport purposes.

Oh my... first video added... then press "Output options" button and Ooooops an error alert box

"Unhandled exception has occoured in your application. If you click Continue. the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit. the application will close immediately.

Out of memory."

Is it really possible it is out of memory? Errr nope I have 8Gig installed and windows sees around 7.9G of it some is lost to hardware that is memory mapped. True it's only a 32bit edition of windows but there is plenty free physical and virtual memory with only 18% total memory load,

At every out of memory prompt I hit continue and it continues... I know what's probably wrong... it's likely using a 32 signed integer to show the free memory space and because I have more than 4Gig free it interpretes it as a negative number of free memory or some other similar design flaw.

When I press the lightning bolt button to process the simple avc encoded MP4 file it spews out a tmp file that is just the video in an executable wrapper and on executing that wrapper with a very old windows media player like icon it complains about a lack of codecs to play the video which is garbage... I can play the video in every media player on my machine including the built in windows media player.

Unbelievably when we go to execute the exe wrapped video it extracts the video to a file called it.dat inthe systems temp folder... copy that to a different location stick the original file extension on it and you can play the video file in the default viewer for that file type... so once again reduced security, no space saving (more than twice the space is required at play time) no increased functionality (the executable wrappers player can't play the video files) so the question returns to WHY???

What is executable files ? I need somebody to educate me.

Reply   |   Comment by Ajayi  –  8 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Ajayi , A EXE file is ( basically ) a 'program'...one that you can just double click to run it :-) So this will take a video file and turn it into a 'executable' file...or 'program'.

Reply   |   Comment by Ian  –  8 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

Ajayi , it simply means you don't need a video player to show the video. It plays itself without any additional program. The recipient simply double clicks the file and it plays regardless if they have a video player installed. But the other points listed are well taken. Most malware detection programs will stop an executable file from running, but some do ask if you wish to proceed and will allow the program to run.

Dennis W Comito, ... and (for Ajayi again) video player is another type of executable file!

"The output video exe only can play video that windows media player can play. The effect is same as window media player. If your end user cannot play the video correctly, maybe he does not install corresponding Codec. "

"I don't find a reason to do that."- too.

Anybody can explain to me why convert video files to executable files?

Reply   |   Comment by Emir  –  9 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+34)

Emir, Only reason I can think of is to hide that it is a video file.

Reply   |   Comment by Thomas Black  –  8 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

Blackhat, possibly to find a way around filters/screeners that may block video/audio files, while allowing .exe files!

Kalyanaraman Subramaniam, executables are more often blocked than video and audio file formats... anyway that's what RAR/ARJ/ZIP files are used for in those cases... and encryption with simple passphrases like "password" to defeat the service scanning the contents of an archive.

Emir,

"... explain to me why convert video files to executable files?"

Years ago there were lots of different codecs [video formats] in use, and if/when you gave someone a video file, it was iffy whether they could play it or not. That's one reason Flash became popular for video -- everyone could play video in a Flash container as long as they had Flash installed. But IMHO using Flash was more for pros, not the average person, so bundling your video with a player in an executable file that anyone could run was a potential solution, though AFAIK it never gained that much popularity. Today you can put your video in the AVC/H.264 format and nearly everyone can play it, with built-in support on everything from Windows to cell phones, tablets, etc.

I don't find a reason to do that.
