    "The licensing of this product is BAD."

    September 19, 2012  |   By plymouthmuscle

    Pros

    It's actually a very good program that converts all sorts of different formats. The included profiles are very good and very helpful.

    Cons

    When you buy a license for this software it's only good for one computer and one install, you can never reinstall it. So for example if your computer crashes and gets rebuilt or say you just want upgrade to a new computer AVS will make you buy a NEW license. When a license is registered once it can never be used again. If you look in their license FAQ it is clearly stated. I ran into this when I rebuilt my machine and AVS told me I was screwed and to rebuy the license. That's the worst licensing model I've ever seen.

    Summary

    I will not buy any more AVS products.

    Not true about the licensing. You can use the same license on a re-install. Check their FAQ under "License Retrieval Questions":

    My personal computer crashed and I had to reformat my computer hard disk drive. May I use the old license as I do not want to buy a new one?

    Yes, you may. Please download the latest versions of our software from the www.avs4you.com web site, install and activate them using the license that you have. If you lost your registration information, please try our online license retrieval tool first, or fill out our support form to restore your lost registration information. Please do not forget to provide your first and last name and your e-mail.
