Oct 8, 2014 Version: 6.3.00 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

If one knows certain tricks one can enter most any file type. Yet before i use this again i have to see if an Adaware Trojan report is a false positive. Was hoping to add an attachment/capture of the report but i see there is no attachments within comments.


NAME: VirTool.Win32.Obfuscator.hg!b1 (v)


DESCRIPTION: Trojan...malicious....harmful functionality or behavior.

TRACES: C:\Documents and Settings\(removed my folder name here)\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Directory 1 for\VideoThumbnailsMaker_setup.exe

Now i installed the previous version and was not showing a Trojan. Then after a windows security update the previous version & 5001 5 times presented this Quarantined status.

If its a false positive, please remove the negative portion of this comment and just leave 1 of 3 ways to use many video types in this software. One is to change 4 types of video extensions to ".avi"(DON'T CHANGE CONTAINER JUST RENAME EXT), then it accepts those 4 types of video types, later on 2 other clues as to using this software.

Mar 26, 2013 Version: 5001 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 9/10 Overall: 8/10

Easy and intuitive to use. Worked almost perfectly for me, batch-converting hundreds of mp4/avi/wmv files to thumbs.

A very small number of MP4 files in that batch however would cause the program to choke (with the progress bar not moving for 10-15 minutes) and then not respond to a Stop click, requiring Task Manager to kill the process.

Mar 14, 2013 Version: OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

VTM is excellent for me!

Ease of use - 9/10 (some options are not clear for the first-time-user)
Functionality - 10/10
Value for money - 10/10
Overall score - 10/10

Nymphomaniac, Thedanny,
VTM is not supplied with its own codecs. It uses your codecs.
If you have any problems with mkv h.264 - read FAQ in (a link can be found in the top right corner of the application). Just follow the instructions.

VTM requires .NET 2.0 Framework (3.5/4.0 does not include 2.0).
