Editors' review

Leawo Free DVD to MP4 Converter converts DVDs and MP4 files for playback on portable media players or your computer. It also converts DVD files to MP3, WAV, and M4A files. You can save files in the AVI, MP4, MPEG-4, or MOV-Quick Time format.

Leawo's interface is well designed and easy to use. You can adjust settings such as audio and video quality. It's handy to have the high-quality options for playback on portable devices or TV monitors and low-quality choices for online playback and low-bandwidth uses. This program's standout feature is its customizable options. For example, if you're converting DVDs to play on your iPod, you can select the specific model of iPod you're using. The program also has custom settings for different models of the iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, and PS3 devices. We appreciate that these settings are built into the program because there are few things worse than watching video on a machine when the resolution is off and the playback is skewed, flattened, or stretched. We were also glad to see that you can save files in the QuickTime format. In other video conversion programs we've tried, that file format is not always an option, yet QuickTime is many users' preferred format for posting videos online.

Leawo Free DVD to MP4 Converter is free. There's a Help file, and online support is available through the manufacturer's Web site. This is a useful application for transferring your DVD library to portable devices, and we recommend it.

    "Won't Convert Copyrighted files"

    September 03, 2013   |   By The_Zimmer_Man

    Version: Leawo Free DVD to MP4 Converter 4.3

    Pros

    It installs.
    Easy to use interface.

    Cons

    Only medium quality video (unless you pay).
    Cannot convert 'copyrighted' videos (unless you pay)
    If you aren't paying attention during install, it'll install adware.

    Summary

    NOT worth the download. Far too limited to bother even for free. Better off waiting for the real free version on the software giveaway sites.

    "Tries to hijack PC"

    January 15, 2013   |   By historyfiend

    Version: Leawo Free DVD to MP4 Converter 4.3

    Pros

    Didn't get to find any because I uninstalled it as soon as all the popups and other invasive measures appeared.

    Cons

    Program and installer tried every trick in the book to get me to enabled its invasive hijacking of my browser and desktop.

    Summary

    Stay away from this program. I'm very disappointed that CNET gave this a good rating. I'm not sure I can trust their download site anymore.

    "Not support what so ever!"

    March 21, 2012   |   By donald_fraser

    Version: Leawo Free DVD to MP4 Converter 4.3

    Pros

    I purchased a bundled pack - DVD Ripper and Video Converter.
    They do seem to produce newer versions of the software on a regular basis and have been able to update to the later versions so long as the major version number stays the same.

    Cons

    Cannot get any support what so ever. For example: try and register on their forum! Try and call any of the support phone numbers. Submit bug reports on-line or via the software. Never a single response.

    Summary

    If you are happy with a trial OK, otherwise avoid like the plague!

    "avoid Leawo"

    March 13, 2012   |   By corwinsr

    Version: Leawo Free DVD to MP4 Converter 4.3

    Pros

    None come to mind

    Cons

    No customer support at all.

    Summary

    Avoid this product and this company at all costs. The Leawo website claims customer support and phone support which are non-existent and forums which are either empty or full of customer questions with no Leawo answers.
    I purchased the Leawo Blu-ray Creator to add to my suite of Blu-ray burning software as it seemed to come highly rated. But within hours of purchasing the software I discovered that there is no display of how much space the converted video required to burn which meant burning blind and taking the chance that my project would not fit and my BD-R would be wasted.
    After several attempts using extremely small video files it turned out everything I burned was unplayable. I used all the same hardware as I do with all other Blu-ray burning programs - all of which continue to work - but the Leawo program continued to put out unplayable discs.
    That's when I discovered that the link for phone support on the Leawo site links to an email contact page as does the support link. The emails I received - all seven of them - only asked why I didn't use their trial version first. None of them would address my issue or attempt to help me with them.
    I opened a complaint against them with Paypal hoping to get a more helpful response but it was the same.
    Avoid this program and this company at all costs. Before purchasing any software check the links on support and look at the companies internal forums and faq's. I made the mistake of not doing that with Leawo but you don't have to.

    "does the job"

    February 06, 2012   |   By mriojas

    Version: Leawo Free DVD to MP4 Converter 4.3

    Pros

    program is free and works. besides mp4, you can also convert to divx and quicktime video formats. also has profiles to easily convert videos to various devices such as the iphone, ipad and ps3 and others.

    Cons

    many of the features are disabled. can only convert dvd's to
    "medium" video quality. there is no button to boost the audio level in the resulting converted file. you must convert the entire dvd since the "trim" feature is disabled.

    Summary

    this is basically a full length dvd converter. there is a button to trim/edit your dvd, but this feature is also disabled.
    i used this program to convert a dvd to mp4 to playback on a kindle fire. the video quality was very good, but the audio level could have been louder. if you use this program to convert your dvd's i suggest you play them back in a quiet environment, otherwise, you may be disappointed with the results.
