* Pros:
Useful for the odd non-seekable streaming file that Avisynth-based tools or Graphedit can't handle. Can handle Xvid single-pass (free version). Nice GUI. Free.

* Cons:
Tries to launch "starter.exe" and phone home at every startup (-> set shortcut to VideoPak2.exe instead).
Video/audio profile settings require multiple tries to "stick". Profile reset to "uncompressed" w/o "no audio" numerous times. Watch out for gigantic filesizes in the status bar. Can handle Xvid, but not LAME.

I downloaded this tool to convert some old WMVs I had to DivX/Xvid AVI's (I discovered later that I could do this with TMPGEnc which I already had). The program seems to be superb at first, but then I realized I had successfully created a 300MB XviD AVI out of a 20MB WMV file. I discovered that whenever I would set the compression settings for either DivX or Xvid, as soon as I would click "OK" the settings would be lost and I would end up with a 9,856 kb/s bitrate somehow... anyway, this is really the only reason I gave it a 1 in functionality (pretty useless if you can only compress video to 9,856 kb/s). Nobody else seems to have that problem so give it a shot, if it worked corectly for me I would have given it a 10.

I also would have given it a 10 for ease of use, but considering programs like WinAVI which basically requires no brains at all to run, I gave it a 9. Otherwise, this program is very easy to run and the GUI very easy to navigate. This is good in my opinion anyway because WinAVI sacrificed configurability for user-friendlyness.

Review by AVNerd on Jan 16, 2005 Version: 2.0 (Freeware) OS: WinXP Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 3/10

My capturing software creates MPEG-2 files that are HUUUUUUUUUUUGE or WMV files that are manageable. But VirtualDub wouldn't read WMV files -- even the old VDub before Micro$oft yelled at them. Used ASFTools to convert to AVI, but it cranked out a video format (WMV3) that VirtualDub couldn't read.

Then I tried this tool. Unlike ASFTools, it actually lets you pick the video and audio formats that the output file will contain. Problem solved (and for a great price)!

I use it daily to convert to wmv and have wide variety of files with differents bitrates also lot of other codecs but not all of them work you need to have the codecs installed. I am a newb but very happy about it after i searched and tried tens of other programs.

DISREGARD the previous reviewers comments!!

This tool worked absolutely great for me. I was able to convert a WMV(2) file into several other different formats with no problem. Really easy and fast to use... and FREE!

To download this, you DON'T need to sign up for a newsletter. It is optional (although it doesn't say that directly). Just click through without entering your email address. And you DO NOT have to install a c-net download tool. No download tool needed. Sheesh. This guy needs to actually TRY THE PROGRAM and not jump to conclusions.

I had a wmv movie I downloaded I could barely watch, the motion wasn't smooth and image was "breaking" all the time. I converted the file to XVid using this tool, the resulting file was 60% smaller and it was perfect to watch. Nice tool!
