    "Full of hidden addware. Avoid!"

    March 4, 2014  |   By SamWalker2014

    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    Pros

    Does what it always did. Super fast conversion of video files. A gazillion options as always. Every possible parameter can be changed.

    Cons

    Addware in massive amounts during installation. Just click CANCEL / QUIT to the gree installer button. The SUPER will install anyway, no matter what you are told.

    Notice that the software adds metadata in your video that is hard to remove. You can not control this. Will display "Created with SUPER".

    So very very obtrusive software, to the extend that makes it almost useless.

    Summary

    There are other players out there which behave as they should. AviDemux etc. Can do same conversion. Some of them even by command line.

    This software was put on a pedistal for too long. It has sold it's soul to the devil. Should be avoided as I see it. Find a portable / old version.

    "Used to be reliable, now full of malware"

    February 27, 2014  |   By EnderofGames

    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    Pros

    Keep an old version, they worked.

    Cons

    Opting out of additional programs will install them anyways. Contains a browser hijacker, "Savings Wizard" switched my default search provider to Bing, added ads to my "New Tab" page, took me a couple of days to uninstall. It also downloaded two additional programs onto my computer, both of which made it hard to uninstall. All of my bookmarks and extension and saved passwords were erased from Chrome.

    Super didn't even convert the music files without errors.

    Summary

    Do not download. Avoid this program. There are hundreds of free alternatives.

    "ADWARE! MALWARE! What complete jerks!"

    November 12, 2013  |   By WeinerSmoker

    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    Pros

    None, anymore.

    Cons

    Used to be great, now it's another dishonest product from greedy dishonest people which will install TONS of malicious crap on your computer, slow down your browser, and who knows what else?

    BAN THEM!

    Summary

    If you are a complete noob who has to ask others to "fix" your computer now and then, this is just about the worst thing you can install.

    "Adware kills what used to be a really great product"

    September 16, 2013  |   By frankz00

    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    Pros

    It USED to be a great go to transcoder but they loaded it up with at least 20 adware packages to make it an unusable mess. I have no idea why they would ruin their own reputation like this. They would have been better off just charging for the software instead!

    Cons

    ADWARE, ADWARE, ADWARE, ADWARE, ADWARE, ADWARE, ADWARE!

    "Do not download installs bloatware"

    April 24, 2013  |   By regisaddress

    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    Pros

    Didn't even run after installer nightmare

    Cons

    Carefully read all agreements and specifically chose the custom option to not change my search engine, homepage, etc. Despite this it changed everything. Had to uninstall the bloatware from the control panel. I was so pissed off I didn't bother running the program in case it installed everything again.

    Summary

    Sucks!

    "Malware you can't easily remove"

    December 6, 2012  |   By GreySoulx

    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    Pros

    None, this program does nothing that other free non-malware infected software does.

    Cons

    It is infected with Claro-Search / Babylon toolbar, among others. I've been able to remove a few of them but the Claro/Babylon search is persistent, and I can't get rid of it so far. DO NOT DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL THIS SOFTWARE.

    Summary

    I hope CNET and Download.com will remove this offering from their server, but in the mean time trust all of us who are suggesting this is not the software for you. It's useful, but there are plenty of other free options that don't infect your PC with unwanted adware, spyware, malware, self-installing toolbars, hijackers, and other 'virus-esque' style bits of crap all over your PC.

    "Avoid at all costs"

    September 22, 2012  |   By mikeeve1950

    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    Pros

    None. The underlying code is open source ffmpeg. There are other, safe GUIs for ffmpeg, or just run ffmpeg from the command line!

    Cons

    Hijacks browser homepage, search engine, installs multiple toolbars.

    Summary

    I read the warnings about the adware/malware included with Super, but thought I was smart enough to opt-out of everything. No way. Despite checking 'decline' where ever available, Super clobbered the browser I was using (Firefox), and even one I wasn't using (IE). With such deceit, I'm not completely sure I've undone all the damage. If you must run it, use a trial version of Sandboxee.

    "gives the most flexibility of all free video converters"

    July 20, 2012  |   By gregmon

    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    Pros

    more choices and options for the perfect video and audio conversions

    Cons

    It comes with built-in malware which can be removed. See my summary of how to avoid the malware below.

    Summary

    Here is a work-around the malware pre-loaded in Super:

    You can still get this fine video converter and rid yourself of the malware linked to it if you take these steps:

    1) Download and install Malwarbytes Free from malwarebytes.org (be careful to select the free version). There could be iterations where new definitions need to be downloaded to make the installation current. Be patient and get the current version ready. When you do eventually do the scan, be sure to specify Full Scan.

    2) Download and SAVE the installation file for Super video converter DO NOT RUN IT. Follow the instructions on the eightsoft website as it is a bit convoluted (3 different pages until you get to "download Super setup file")

    3) You will probably get several warnings from your anti-viral software that a threat is detected. Allow these threats...if you don't, Super will not install properly. You should now have the install file in your download folder (or wherever your download location is).

    4) Go into your browser's internet options and change the security and privacy tabs to the highest level and apply settings. Now exit your browser.

    5) Now execute the SUPERsetup.exe file you downloaded. Accept agreements but watch for a partially hidden panel that comes up pre-checked for Babylon tool bars. BE SURE TO UNCHECK THESE BOXES! Continue with the installation but UNCHECK THE BOX THAT ALLOWS SUPER TO LAUNCH NOW.

    6) When you are done, your browser will launch with small rotating clock in the center. CLOSE YOUR BROWSER!

    7) Next, run Malwarebytes and do a Full Scan. It should find 11 malwares. At the end of the scan, check each malware (PUP) and let Malwarebytes remove them. A restart will be necessary.

    8) You can now launch your browser and restore your original security and privacy settings.

    Super can now be launched safely

    "Just what I was looking for"

    June 16, 2012  |   By jimEast

    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    Pros

    I was looking for compression suite software that could convert my avi's to the new html5 comparable formats webM, Ogg Theora, MP4. It does all those and much more including FLV and SWF. It also covers a multitude of audio formats. It blows the doors off Miro in every respect. I could(if I had money)have spent $650 for Sorenson Squeeze and not have a better product.

    Cons

    I haven't had it for long but so far I see no cons so far.

    Summary

    I've looked through the other reviews and seen many complaints about malware and unwanted tool bars. Maybe this is something they did in the past but I haven't run into anything like that.

    "one of the best FREE encoder/converter"

    April 16, 2012  |   By Sjersey

    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    Pros

    just drag/drop any file and encode.
    I run it on Win7 64 Quad processor, it is amazing.

    Cons

    It installs Iminent toolbar, but after all, it was my choice to install it instead of paying $25 for another payable soft that can't even be close.
    After all it isn't any different from most of the free utilities that install toolbar and search engines.

    Summary

    STRONGLY RECOMMEND,

    read a bit lower in the page you'll see this message since 2009:
    "HAS MALWARE!"
    October 27, 2009 | By jleesmith
    Version: Super Video Converter 5.8

    people scream for the last 4 years about a "malware", in reality, it is either a false positive like in here:
    http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?showtopic=32466
    or a toolbar which IS NOT A MALWARE as it is not flagged by any ANTIVIR

    no one in here speaks about the encoding quality, all posts mention malware, and each new poster adds a second layer and so on..

    Updated on Apr 20, 2012

    I simply wanted to clarify that my previous post concerns SUPER(C) from eRightSoft which is at this time at version v2012.build.51 a 50Mb file totally FREE
    It has absolutely nothing to do with this Super Video converter from Witcobber Software (http://www.witcobber.com) v 5.8 a 1.79MB file shareware for $29.00
