Editors' Review

+
This basic audio and video converter garners points for its ease of use, but the trial version's limitations may be too strict for some users. DirectConvert supports a number of popular video and audio formats, including MPEG, AVI, WMV, MP3, OGG, AC3, WMA, and WAV codecs. Transforming files is a breeze, since the program walks you through the process in step-by-step mode. When converting video files, you can specify width, height, and frame rate, as well as audio and video compression schemes. If you're working with audio files, you can select the quality, though the demo appears to disable support for the space-saving VBR format. You can also extract audio from video clips or choose to convert only a certain portion of files. That all sounds great, until you find out the trial version limits all audio conversions to 30 seconds and places a watermark on video files. If it weren't for that letdown, we could get more excited about this otherwise capable application.

"rmvb to vcd does not work and NO refund!"

June 13, 2004

 |  Version: DirectConvert 3.2

Summary

I paid the 25$ to buy the product. BIG mistake! It cannot convert rm or rmvb to vcd. The author insisted that it is real encoder problem even HT encoder, EOVide and other converters using the same real encoder and working prefectly on the same machine. Furthermore, he refused to refund the money.

Think twice before you use it. Why go through the trouble to deal will a dishonest company while the same money can give you a more stable and more professional software.
