Editors' Review

Who said free had to be flimsy, too? This robust video converter ably packs a number of file formats into the Flash video format and is stylish to boot. Riva FLV Encoder works well with the usual suspects: AVI, WMV, MPEG, and MOV files. With a graceful, well-designed interface that shows its developers care about details, this video converter also offers a healthy set of conversion options. Frame rate, bit rate, and audio-compression options all can be set to your preferences. The program can "cut" video files into JPEG images, if needed. We were very impressed with Riva's conversion speed during our tests. Another nice detail is the inclusion of several presets depending on your network type (ISDN or DSL, for example). What's more, you can easily save settings to save time later. Overall, Riva is a great freeware application for Webmasters looking for a reliable (and inexpensive) way to convert video files to the Web.

"This installs VisualBee toolbar and hijacks browser."

January 28, 2013  |  By MJ-

 |  Version: Riva FLV Encoder 2

Pros

Pros aren't worth having my browser hijacked.

Cons

This installs the VisualBee (Conduit) toolbar. I 'declined' installing a toolbar but it did so anyway - with no easy way to remove it. BEWARE. Shame on Riva.
