Could not get it to run under Win7x64. Got exception error.

Review by mail2tom on Jun 17, 2011 Version: OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

Pros - Simple to use. Few options to confuse newbies. Batch processing.

Cons - Some tools have to be downloaded separately. Doesn't actually import DVDs - you have to convert your VOBs to MPGs or demux to m2v streams first. Doesn't support keeping the original AC3 audio in either output format. Poor handling of audio delays when working with batches - no individual delay settings.

Overall - Ease of use score would have been higher if the user didn't have to prep the files so much beforehand (convert formats, deal with audio delays). The other limitations mean that this tool really has little to offer in a field full of far better options. If it could import IFO or VOBs, and keep the original AC3 audio in the output file (DTS as well in the case of MKV files) then it would score far higher. As it stands, it offers nothing new to make the download worthwhile.
