Editors' Review

Sothink Video Converter Pro offers a comprehensive range of format and resolution options through an accessible interface. The encoding profiles are categorized to serve the needs of computers, streaming applications, smartphones, tablets, and game consoles, proving to be easy to use.

Pros

Very intuitive: We liked the Sothink Video Converter Pro interface because it's clean, ergonomic, and straightforward for novices. Everything is easily attainable: actions at the top, conversion options concentrated in five drop-down menus at the left, and file management in the main pane.

Batch processing: This is a lifesaver that boosts productivity, but we would like to be able to choose different options for each clip in the batch.

Photo extraction from video: We automatically extracted images at a rate of one capture per second of running video, in native or higher/lower resolution. It's very practical for taking sample images or putting backgrounds in video titles.

Cons

Average conversion rates: Our tests on a dual core laptop started from a 1080p 111MB MP4 file and took 3:48 to convert to a standard quality 480p FLV file, 4:57 for a standard quality 480x320 Android MP4 file, and 11:00 for a high-quality 720p iPhone MP4 file. Conversion times are comparable to freeware apps.

Unlocking options: Most encoding options are reserved for the full version that costs $24.95. At least SourceTec clearly marks which option is available or locked without tiresome pop-up messages or diversions to unnecessary links.

Subtitles and video trimming: We have not located the subtitle loading feature. Video trimming is definitely out of place here.

Bottom Line

A very intuitive application, Video Converter Pro targets those who want conversions for specific devices. You will like the interface and the batch processing feature, as well as the overall accessibility of the app. However, if you are an advanced videographer looking for more flexible editing features and more conversion options, you can turn your attention to NLE software.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Sothink Video Converter Pro 3.6 build 27120.

    "I absolutely love this software."

    January 14, 2013   |   By ekertin

    Version: Sothink Video Converter 3.5

    Pros

    It's simply the fastest converter/burner I've ever used. It has plenty of templates, and you can use your own music in the menue. And it's free.

    Cons

    Not much really, but there is a Sothink splash screen at the start of each video. For $19.95 you can remove it, but who cares. Ashampoo gives a slightly better picture quality, but it is slower, and cost bucks.

    Summary

    Try it, I guarantee you'll like it.

    "Free product excellent, purchased product-beware!"

    November 18, 2012   |   By Jord89

    Version: Sothink Video Converter 3.5

    Pros

    Technicaly excellent, and very user friendly-great user interface.
    Does things other converters struggle with (correcting wrong aspect ratios, for example).
    Also, as advertised, makes use of multicore processors to their full extent, particulaly if using Windows 7. This results in fast conversions.
    The preview screen is particularly useful, allows you to gauge if particular files have problems.

    Cons

    Beware if you purchase the Pro version.
    This offers HD conversion to you video processing armoury, which works well when it's working.
    Over zelous product protection has made this almost unusable. It regularly asks you to re-active the product, since it has detected a computer change (when there have been no changes). You only get three reactivations, and the support response is very poor. Buyers beware! What a shame, such a good product otherwise.

    Summary

    Freebee good and easy to use.
    Don't buy the Pro version until they have sorted reactivation and support out.

    "Amazing piece of software that works like it claims to"

    March 20, 2012   |   By sulatianguo

    Version: Sothink Video Converter 3.5

    Pros

    This software loads up, runs, and works very quickly with no glitches whatsoever. It is very easy to learn to use and is very efficient. It converts any video format that I have tried to convert and does it in quick fashion.

    Cons

    None that I can find, unless there is a format, common to more people that it doesn't convert.

    Summary

    It does what it is advertised to do in royal fashion with no installation problems. It works quickly and efficiently, converting scores of formats. It is extremely easy to learn to use and is visually simple and pleasing. This software is equivalent to an expensive piece of software. It is indispensable to me, at this point, and I would buy it if I could not get it free.

    "dishonest company, really bad operating and no support!"

    April 17, 2011   |   By realrater

    Version: Sothink Free Video Converter 3.3

    Pros

    Good encoder with options before your registration keys run out, a few days after paying for it.

    Cons

    "UPGRADED" to $25 pro to loose their logo. PCs need reg service-soon learned if swap hard drive, or ANY change-warns have few registration keys left-then soon none! Some over-zealous moron w/a genius complex thinks ripping people off is a good idea!!

    Summary

    THE PITS IN SOFTWARE AND BAD SUPPORT WHO DO NOT RESPOND TO E-MAILS EVEN AFTER YOU PAY THEM.
    DO NOT BUY ANY SOFTWARE FROM SOTHINK. WE WANT A FULL REFUND FROM THEM!
    C-NET NEEDS TO REMOVE THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!
