Although your 1080p HD videos are probably more than adequate for your current needs, 4K video is quickly becoming increasingly pervasive. When H.264 and HEVC (H.265) codec come to implementing 4K content, there comes with a challenge of distributing 4K video. If you recorded some clips at 4K resolution by GoPro, drone, DSLR camera or phone, you might get issues like choppiness, stuttering, crashing, lagging, freezing, poor video quality after editing. Therefore, it is suggested to convert 4K video with the help of WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe.

WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is a powerful and user-friendly video conversion software that helps you to convert 4K video content to guarantee flawless playback on all PCs, TVs, and Mobile devices. Thanks to the GPU level 3 hardware acceleration used, it is 47X real-time faster than similar 4K converters while keeping a good balance between output size and quality.

Also, you can compress bulky sized video by tinkering with various parameters like codecs, resolution, aspect ratio, frame rate to get tailored output resolution (1080p, 720p etc.), format, size for fast sharing on socials or email sending. Surprisingly, WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe allows for up to 90% video compression with less pixel-level quality discrepancies.

What’s New in Version 5.16.8:

  • Optimized H.265/H. 264 presets for smaller size and better quality when handling 1080p and 4K content.
  • Improved encoding quality in the HQ mode.
  • Minor usability tweaks and fixes.

After installing I get a message that offers upgrade to Full. What is the difference between this program and a Full edition?

ut oh, on using the youtube downloader option it updates the youtube downloader components to current version BUT there has developed a problem whoever is compiling the ytb.exe this downloads has switched to compiler/linker settings that require windows 7 or above. therefore unless the developer that maintains ytb.exe and presumably the other downloader filenames reverts to wider compatibility settings this product has ceased to be XP/Vista compatible for youtube downloads. Apparently youtube-dl public domain project as of upgrade version=Mon, 10 Jan 2022 09:23:30 GMT the project is shutting its doors to XP and Vista and Server 2008 the latter 2 are still being provided at least manual security patches every month.

TK, as far as I can tell the last versions I have here that support XP and Vista for video recoding and slideshow creation is 5.15.? branch all 5.16 version I have installed fail with failed to find a procedure.

I was able to reactivate using todays license so all is not lost for us users of XP and Vista... though I use XMedia recode for most of my video reprocessing needs.

TK, You can't expect software companies to continue supporting obsolete OS's. Don't you think it's time to update your computer's operating system? Right now, I have 13 year old hardware and I'm using Windows 10 (x64) with no problems at all. I have an old Core2Duo, 8 gigs of ram an old gigabyte mobo p35c-ds3r (2.0). Luckily, I have been able to overclock the cpu to the maximum and now planning to install a SSD to replace the old mechanical one. I also plan on testing my equipment on Windows 11 even though it does not meet hardware requirements. Lots of people are using workarounds to install Win 11 to bypass hardware requirements because they don't have the funds to buy expensive new hardware. I'm one of them.

You can never tell what people are doing with older operating systems, so your "upgrade" suggestion will fall on mute ears for some. Not everyone is using an older OS as their default OS, but even if they are, they may not have the option to upgrade. They might be elderly, not computer savvy, or one of many other reasons why they are using an XP or Vista computer. Since we do not know their situation, it is impossible to make a suggestion of what they should do that has any value.

I love Windows 7 and Vista. I like how Vista changed from how it started out to what it became. I have no plans on upgrading my Vista computer just because someone else thinks I should.

I have Windows 10 and 11 but I also have computers with older operating systems going back to XP that are running tasks day and night. I also have bootable NT2K, NT, W98, but not running currently. The XP computers also have other software installed that I do not have a license to install the programs on later operating systems, so to utilize those programs, they remain on the computers running XP SP4.

As a developer myself, I prefer to abide by the developer's license terms, the same way that I hope users will abide by mine. If I had a legit license to install some of the programs on later computers, I would in only a few cases. I certainly would not want my own personal use computer to slow down, just so an old program is running on a later operating system. Also, buying 20 operating system licenses "just to upgrade" those older computers does not make financial sense, much less the time to do the upgrades. The computers are "offline" and safe from any external threats. They perform "workhorse" tasks and work fine where they are. From my viewpoint, the operating systems are not obsolete, merely, not supported by Microsoft. They are supported by me, but that need is extremely rare.

I've used WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe on XP for several years, so if I need to convert a batch of videos, rather than doing it on my workstation PC, I will use an XP computer or a group of them depending on how many videos I have to convert.

You raise several very valid points. In terms of user-friendly user interface, XP & 7 had it all over what came later. (I happen to run 10 on a couple systems.) I must have a couple hundred programs installed into 7, some of them quite specialized to handling specific tasks in particular ways. Some of them are not compatible with 10 -- and presumably either with Win-11, in which I have zero interest. Many of these programs are very necessary to things that I do regularly. Some of them can not be reinstalled, for various reasons. So, my only options for their continued use would be 1) Running them in a Virtual Machine, 2) Disconnecting the "obsolete" OS system from the internet, over security issues, so that it becomes a solitary, dedicated workstation in its own little world, or 3) Attempting to spin the program off as a portable app, which is an uncertain, complex, and fairly techie undertaking, which may or may not work and could still run into compatibility problems.
Thus far, I have gone with Option #2 for some XP boxes operated by other users, and may have to do that for Win-7 rigs of my own, in due course. Not an ideal solution, but still a practical one. I'd like to develop the skills to better pursue option 3.

Great converter, this is the one i mostly use for my needs. But when i add an srt file for embedded subtitles, i cannot chose the size and position of the subtitles, which some other converters can do. For that matter i have to use another good Giveaway, VideoProc Converter.

As it happens Teddy, VideoProc Converter is ALSO developed and sold by Digiarty... the same as this program is!

Just thought you might like be interested to know that.

There seems to be something wrong with the GAOTD server, because 3 subsequent requests for download links to be provided by mail failed to work and I have not received any link to none of the 3 e-mail addresses specified for this purpose on this website, whilst this channel of getting download lings used to work perfectly until now. I am an experienced GAOTD user and before I posted this notice, I had checked twice my spam folders and mail servers (gmai.com) – to no avail. Regards, Marek

Last minute message: all the three aforementioned requests have just arrived. There must have been a glitch of the GAOTD server or somewhere else en route?

If WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe 5.16.8 can insert subtitles that are larger than usual and in colors I think that is ideal. Usually I use WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe 5.16.3 to convert a video with the H265 codec to 'H256 video, H257 Audio' codec output MPG, then my free video2video can embed the subtitles with color of your choice and in any size.
Also because a 1920x800 film film can use smaller subtitles than a film 1472x1072 (¾ image format) that must have larger subtitles, [Gone with the Wind (1939)].

FWIW, nowadays the 2 primary ways of providing subs with local video [v.s. streaming] is 1) as a graphics-based stream alongside audio & video in a .m2ts file [Blu-ray] or .VOB file [DVD], or 2) in a specially formatted .srt text file, often created / acquired by OCRing a graphics-base sub stream. LOTS of software players, including Android, will give you the choice to display subs using an .srt file named the same as the video file, & display them using your choice of size & color. You can sometimes find .srt files that someone else has already OCRed online. Producing graphics-based sub streams is doable, but requires specialized software. Most video converters OTOH will overlay subs, usually using an .srt file as source, making them a permanent part of the re-encoded video -- IOW can't use the player to set color or size or turn on/off.

Oswald Morris, According to the User Manual, available on the website:
3-2. Subtitle
You can select the embedded subtitle track or add subtitle to your video:

1 Check "Enable Subtitle" -> Select the embedded subtitle -> "Done".

2 Check "Enable Subtitle" -> "Extra" -> Hit "Add" to import SRT subtitle file -> "Done".

and there is an image which I can't include. See the manual on the website. The manual doesn't answer your question. Perhaps you will need to try it, for free. I found that using either VLC (yes, it does MUCH more than play stuff) or ffmpeg were good tools for getting my subtitles to look the way I want, including font, fontsize and color.
