Editors' Review

GOM Video Converter, as its name entails, converts video files into other formats supported by various electronic devices.

The list of formats this converter offers is large. You can find options for Apple, Android, Windows, and many other popular gadgets. As soon as you start up GOM, it asks you to set the output format for the work you plan to do, and then all you have to do is add a file to convert and begin the conversion process. At the point where you have to add a file, however, is where the issues start. No matter what file we tried to add, GOM would always end up crashing for us. We never got a chance to even test out how long it takes to convert a video because this simply did not work. The program's Help page offered some troubleshooting for when a file won't be added to GOM, but it didn't say anything about the whole application just ceasing to work and shutting down. Other than this, we can't say much else about this video converter, since we couldn't make it very far into the features. There aren't that many other features offered, but the overall design and layout of it is simple and relatively easy to navigate. We just wish that it worked.

The download and installation process was slightly difficult, just because there were some unfamiliar steps and options. Maybe understanding those better would have helped solve the issue here.

"BEWARE OF NEWEST VERSION!"

April 11, 2013  |  By ChaosStreams

 |  Version: GOM Video Converter 1.1.0.58

Pros

Still my favorite converter BUT...

Cons

...THIS ONE JUST DOESN'T WORK PROPERLY FOR ME

Summary

Not sure what the new version doesn't like about my system but it doesn't work properly. It still converts videos but i have to manually cancel the conversion to get it to stop. I had to do a lot of looking around to find a download of version 11057. I finally found it here http://www.softsalad.com/software/gom-encoder.html If you have these issues with version 11058 uninstall and revert to version 11057, hope this helps someone out!

"Superfast MKV to AVI conversion (with subtitle)"

October 05, 2012  |  By donaldw

 |  Version: GOM Video Converter 1.1.0.54

Pros

#1 - Convert 25 min 720p MKV anime with subtitle to DivX AVI of the same resolution in 6 min! with no noticeable difference.
#2 - Convert 25 episodes of above in < 90 minutes, using 8 threads. (my CPU is quad core, 8 threaded) in the background with no noticeable performance difference
#3 - Note: I can't find the "malware" claimed in the other review. I checked my firefox.

Cons

Its "too helpful"

It gives tons of "DEFAULTS" setting, but none that I need, and no immediately identify-able way to do so. but I guessed, and got it right.

I need mine converted to a DivX that will run on an LG TV from a hard drive. and of course no such option is directly available. but I just keep an eye out for "1280x720" and AVI files, so I end up using PS3 setting.

Summary

none

March 08, 2012  |  By ideveroux
