Jack i sort of agree with you however there is another factor. that being all the gui's out there that use ffmpeg. factor them in and even the most basic user can get ffmpeg to "work".

the fact JM couldnt use it at says nothing really about this software. so JM if you read this try out some of the many gui programs that use ffmpeg since you do not seem to have the time or patience needed to learn how to use it.

oh and a final comment about his chromium comment. ye 100mb installer(so compressed) compared to uncompressed ffmpeg size. not exactly realistic to start with. then add in all the codecs and formats ffmeg handles and it makes his comment look even more clueless about how complex ffmpeg actually is.

Jul 11, 2017 Version: 3.3.2 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 6/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

Let's put things into perspective: for those with command line knowledge like me this is a superb piece of programming 10/10, but the rest 99.99℅ they have no bloody clue and would be wise to stick with ffmegtryou. My scores reflect the actual reality for normal users here!

Jul 11, 2017 Version: 3.3.2 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 5/10

Ignore JM's comment. He's a f***ing idiot. This is the defacto standard tool for processing media files. He seems like one of the script kiddies that wants a tool to do exactly what he wants by just typing one command.

Jul 10, 2017 Version: 3.3.2 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

The bloated 35MB file size for a command line utility with no interface that only handles audio/video, should’ve been a strong warning sign for anyone not to download it and waste their time. Just to give you a comparison, the Chromium engine (one of the most complex software available after an OS) is just 100MB so we’re looking at a very poorly written utility and we can tell that from the size alone.

The utility is extremely buggy and the error messages is generates are utter nonsense that do not direct the user towards a solution. We were unable to get this tool to perform the simplest of tasks; such as merging an audio and a video file, so we’re not exactly eager to find out what happens when you have more complex needs!

Don’t waste your time with this for programming is not their forte.
