"BEWARE Hamster has spyware"

February 08, 2011  |  By BillyMitchell

 |  Version: Hamster Free Video Converter 1.0.0.42b

Pros

Terrible, spyware attached NO PROS.

Cons

Makemesearch.exe was attached to Hamster. CNET allows them to say its "Spyware Free" NOT TRUE. Makemesearch is rated as a serious threat spyware.

Summary

STAY AWAY FROM THIS

"Great program, give it a try!"

January 30, 2011  |  By jasperville

 |  Version: Hamster Free Video Converter 1.0.0.42b

Pros

I love the drag and drop feature, very handy. Most of the controls are intuitive, however I can't seem to pick a destination folder...you probably can, I just haven't figured it out yet.

Cons

I suggest fiddling with the audio quality controls, as I had some sound quality loss when converting from FLV to WMV. Also the program is a bit draining on resources.

Summary

You can adjust audio and video quality, as well as convert to several common and uncommon video formats, and also converts to several devices, many of which I've never heard of before. The program is free, as it's installing, a picture of the team is displayed, they look like a nice group of geeks, they could be greedy and charge money for this, but they're not. Give it a try.
If you need some high tech program with lots of gadgets, this isn't it. However if you need fast conversion of a batch of files, and you don't need to do anything else on your PC while it converts, it's a great program.
The default destination is the "My Videos" folder, which is fine, I would rather choose my own folder during installation.
It really is easy to use, the buttons are big, I like that, it's sorta fun, colorful. The crazy hamster icon is cute too. All the other poorly written reviews, ignore them, I did... try it out, you won't be disappointed!

Dude, read the installation carefully! You can opt out of the stupid Bing toolbar thingy and the installation goes fine afterward. I had no problem with this. If you were too impatient to read the prompts, that's your own fault!

"Couldn't be simpler"

January 29, 2011

 |  Version: Hamster Free Video Converter 1.0.0.42b

Pros

Like I said in the summary. Very easy to use and works flawlessly.

Cons

None. Zilch.

Summary

Use it! I have used it for many different conversion formats and they have come out perfect. Just remember to read during the installation process so that you don't install toolbars that you don't want.
