    "Program installs crapware"

    August 5, 2013  |   By Captain_Fred

    Version: DVDVideoSoft Free Studio 6.1.8.725

    Pros

    Maybe it works, I uninstalled before even trying given the aggressive invasion on my PC.

    Cons

    Hyjacks everything without asking as most free programs do. My SYMBALOO (a super web mix program) two Yahoo tiles ended up being redirected.

    Summary

    I can see that free programs try to install commercial apps to pay for their software, but only when this is done in the open. This company installs all sorts of crapware without warning - inexperienced users may find themselves deeply frustrated.

    MALWARE!!!

    Summary

    It's irresponsible for CNET to allow downloads that contain harmful software! Shame on THEM!!! AND they RECOMMENDED this crap program that infected my PC!

    "For an All-In-One Audio/Video Suite, This Is the Best!"

    May 28, 2013  |   By MrWebAuthor

    Version: DVDVideoSoft Free Studio 6.1.1.430

    Pros

    Considering the fact that this software suite does SO MANY different things AND does them very well, a thousand characters wouldn't be enough to share all the "PROS"; so let me just say like I said in the title of my One-line summary above: For an All-In-One Audio/Video Suite, This One Is Definitely the BEST!

    Cons

    For the time that I've been using this software, I've yet to find any real "CONS" that're really worth mentioning. Might I say, however, that when you do the install it (as with ANY software install) ALWAYS choose the 'Custom' option instead of just the regular normal 'Install'. Also, even though you'll find numerous individual software programs that're already inside this suite, that doesn't mean that all of them install when you install the program itself. You may click on one of the programs with the expectation that it'll just automatically load, but it will prompt you to download that particular program...which is really no big deal. Once it's downloaded, it will just put itself right there in the slot it was meant to go into, so the next time you click it, it will load just fine. These are more educational suggestions than actual "CONS", but they are worth mentioning so you're not caught off-guard.

    Summary

    To summarize, if you want a FREE program suite that can do it all, or at least 'nearly all', I highly recommend this program! It's definitely worth the download!

    "A LOT OF BLOT SOFTWARE ADDED WITHOUT PERMISSION"

    May 23, 2013  |   By NoroTech

    Version: DVDVideoSoft Free Studio 6.1.1.430

    Pros

    Good Software.

    Cons

    Comes with a lot of bloatware and browser hijacker.
    Would rather pay then get free software.
    Free software is not FREE.

    Summary

    It took me half a day getting rid of the lot.
    Uninstalled completely.
    Advice to CNET: Remove from your downloads.
    Gives a bad name to CNET reputation.
    Advice to DVDSoft: Would be good for you to charge a fee and remove the list in Cons.

    "dissappointing"

    May 18, 2013  |   By Perkinsville

    Version: DVDVideoSoft Free Studio 6.1.1.430

    Pros

    It seems easy enough and offers a great bundle , however the one conversion that I attempted over 20 times with different video each time left me dissapointed

    Cons

    The freeware wouldn't let me complete a conversion from Youtube to DVD. Each ended with 99.93 to 99.97 complete and the burning process wouldn't start . I looked for instructions as to how to proceed none were there. I first thought I was trying to burn too many files but even two using 2 G out of 4.3 G still ended 99. and some fraction complete.

    Summary

    With as many satisfied users I must be missing a step , but i reviewed the video and found no answers . I remain dissapointed

    Version: DVDVideoSoft Free Studio 6.1.1.430

    Pros

    It is easy enough for a computer cluless to use. Also it works awesomely (if that is a word.), I can do what I want to get done.

    Cons

    No cons cause I have not figured out something I can not do with it.

    "Great Programs AND they are FREE"

    April 21, 2013  |   By Zgeeman

    Version: DVDVideoSoft Free Studio 6.1.0.320

    Pros

    A great product and it's free... So there is NO reason to complain.

    Cons

    Read my summary for more details, but I like this program. I have AVS Suites and paid $60 for it 2 years ago and it does not have many of the features FreeStudio 2013 has.
    I recommend it highly and by the reply's to most negative comments, it is easy to see the company is trying to correct those problems by asking those with problems to contact customer support to find a fix for their problems... VERY PROFESSIONAL!

    Summary

    So far, I have only tried the "Free Video to DVD Converter".
    This program takes your AVI, MP4, MOV, WMV, etc., files and converts them into DVD viewable files that you can watch on your DVD player.
    The first time I used the default settings and the program converted 6 WMV videos into a DVD with an opening menu consisting of a simple list of the video file names that you can scroll through and select individually.
    The only problem I found was trying to MAX out the amount of files to see how many I would be able to fit on a single layer DVD. I selected about 9 video files and the set the program to the highest capacity of compression. The conversion took about 2.5 hours and after the burn I tried watching but something went wrong and the DVD turned out jerky with pauses every half second. This happened throughout the whole DVD. So until they fix the "Highest Compression" settings, use the default settings.
    I did not use any other settings, but the default settings turned out surprisingly clear and without problems.
    I would recommend this program to others.

    "All glitz and no Glamour"

    March 6, 2013  |   By VirtualyConfused

    Version: DVDVideoSoft Free Studio 6.0.0.128

    Pros

    Nice interfacce and it's free.

    Cons

    Couldn't edit the simplest AVI file without making a mess of it and making my speakers turn out the most painful noise as it tried to play back the sound.
    No sound editor.
    Few editing controls.

    Summary

    If it can't edit a little video I don't think I'll wast time tring to convert formats.

    "Rating based on one program - Free Video Dub"

    March 4, 2013  |   By DaveJ10

    Version: DVDVideoSoft Free Studio 6.0.0.128

    Pros

    It works a little sometimes

    Cons

    I've tried doing simple editing with mp4 and mkv files. It works about one third of the time. If it doesn't like the file it crashes. It had few features.
    Typically it can't edit files that it created from the editing process. I hope there is something better that is free
