"Waste of time and money, except you are looking for..."

November 02, 2014  |  By A_Martin

 |  Version: CyberLink MediaEspresso 7.0

Pros

Very nice interface. Simple steps do get the job done. For people who have no idea what encoding trans-coding is and they want to use their results on gadgets like iPhone, android or these small playthings and have their movies in NTSC! is probably a nice tool... The true theater enhancements are great!

Cons

All of you with PAL TVs, PAL DV-Cams stay away!!! For this mediaespresso (I have version 7 as a freebee with Powerdvd 14) cannot handle PAL. Half the users of probably more of this globe are excluded! Cannot import big avi's Cannot convert DVD's into MP4, It just can convert one file into one file. For people who have a slight understanding of encoding this program is utterly useless, for one hardly has any options for tweaking. Photos are 2 formats, MP3 are three bitrates, only the higher ones and MP4 only a few options for your bitrate. For a one and a half hour movie it takes 33 min to encode, whereas my Adobe Media Encoder CS6 takes about 8 or 9 minutes.

Summary

Sorry Cnets review of excellent gives a wrong impression of this software. They should clearly state that this software is good tool to transfer your media, not DVD Movies!, to an external phone, tablet or android system or any kind of these play gadgets, but not for people who use PAL! or want to view the output on their big TV screen tv or Computer, for these purposes there is much better software available. Nero Recode does a very good job for these needs. You don't have to use professional software like Adobe CS6 like me.

"So limited and over-priced for what it is."

September 03, 2013  |  By ejmurray117

 |  Version: CyberLink MediaEspresso 6.7

Pros

For me there are no pros

Cons

It's of no use to me whatsoever, because there are less than minimal options

Summary

By way of example, I wanted a DivX file with MP3 audio, because this pairing is the only AVI that will play on a DVD RW in my Sony DVD player/recorder. The only audio option available is "Dolby Digital", which means I get a completely silent movie.

I got this program free when I purchased a Power Director upgrade, but there is no way that I would ever pay for MediaEspresso.
As someone has already pointed out, there are free converters out there that give multiple options for video and audio, and I'll stick with Any Video Converter Free, or AVS, one that I didn't mind paying for.

How Cyberlink has the nerve to charge people big bucks, or even any bucks, for the mediocre MediaEspresso, is beyond me.

I consider that the program functions are about 5% of what they actually should be, and that Cyberlink could have done an awful lot better.

"cyberjunk dont buy"

February 21, 2012  |  By johnnycod51

 |  Version: CyberLink MediaEspresso 6.5

Pros

good advertised features

Cons

tech support is a joke

Summary

Unless you pay $30 for a couple months of tech support you can talk to nobody. I just wanted all the features of my legal and paid for cyberlink program to work and there is a activation issue. There is no number to call, not even for sales, and it is very apparent through thier email support system responses they could care less. That is if you get a response. If they made a good product don't you think they wouldn't be afraid to help thier customers?

Pros

UI looks good.

Not many options either?

There are much better converters available as freeware?

"Easy to use. Performance not as expected."

January 16, 2010  |  By joesmie

 |  Version: MediaShow Espresso 5.0.1022

Pros

A very simple to use interface.

Cons

Enabling ATI Streams acceleration of transcoding to MPEG4 AVC does not provide a speed advantage.

Additional flexibility of encoder quality would be very helpful.

Summary

Transcoding speed is significantly slower than provided by the ATI AVIVO converte,r which is free with the graphics card. Enabling hardware acceleration provides no improvement in performance, despite significant GPU usage (as shown in the ATI Catalyst control center activity monitor)

"Another great product from Cyberlink"

December 01, 2009  |  By FleetCommand

 |  Version: MediaShow Espresso 5.0.1022

Pros

Easy to use and fast, it provides support media conversion into a small number of popularly used file formats.

Cons

I'm not sure whether its size is appropriate for such a software or not, but I neglect this disadvantage. Perhaps it should have supported a wider range of media format.

Summary

Definitely recommended.
