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.

"Great Product, Rubbish Support"

November 18, 2014  |  By SijoZ

 |  Version: Sothink Video Converter Pro 3.6 build 27120

Pros

It does what it says it does, converts videos into WEB format. No mess, no problems

Cons

None to my knowledge except the registration process. By me it wants to be re-registered ever-time-i-run-it and now due to too many registrations my license is blocked and i can't use it!

So, no problems with the software it is the Administration (again) that is causing all the problems.

Summary

Have purchased to Sothink Transcoder for Video files but due to 'changes in hardware' (I installed a SSD for my C: drive and regularly update my Hard Drives as I do a lot of video work and need HD space), my registration number has been blocked.

What another issue is that the software constantly asks me to re-register the program, which I have to do each time I run it. Even if I run it as an administrator next time a run it again, again I need to register it.

Now I can use it because of Hardware Changes.....

Is this really your business when I play with the configuration of my PC to enable me to have greater video rendering efficiencies?

This is really a good way to alienate a customer. I certainly will not buy any other items from Sothink and SourceTec. if this is not fixed fairly quickly, I am happy to surf the WEb sharing my experience.

Thank you.
