"Infected with Malware"

July 04, 2013  |  By pilottwoten

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 1.2.2

Pros

Who knows, maybe it might be ok without the malware/spyware.

Cons

Don't download, infected.

Summary

Don't download, it'll infect your computer. CNET needs to do a better job of vetting!

"Beware malicious software -- and unusable interface"

July 04, 2013  |  By sar982

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 1.2.2

Pros

Free! Except it isn't.

Cons

This software was packaged with at least three malicious programs (without the choice to opt out), as well as a fourth that my anti-virus fortunately detected and preemptively blocked. One of these actually changes your home page to some bogus "internet search" site, which remains even after you uninstall all of the programs. On top of that, the video-editing software itself is completely unintuitive. If I have to spend more than three minutes figuring out even how to drop a video file in and start the editing process, I'd consider that an interface failure.

Summary

I had trusted CNET not to carry dreck like this, particularly regarding the malicious software forced upon the user. That trust is now gone.

"WORTH TRYING"

June 15, 2013  |  By improviste

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 1.2.2

Pros

Before downloading and trying this program I read all reviews and frankly I was a bit anxious - so many controversial ones. I wanted a free powerful video editor which will never jeopardize security of my software and will meet my professional requirements. I was not afraid of difficult settings list or something for I've tried quite enough similar programs. So the program runs fast and easily fulfills all announed functions. I don't like reviews like "best program I ever tried etc" or other phrases issued by developers, but the program is 100% worth trying.

Cons

For me (I'm quire experienced in this field) no problem occurred.

Summary

Secure, seem to handle with all existing formats, quite versatile and well-developed. In case an updated version is released, please let know CNET and you users. Thank for you work.

"Skillful video program for any professional taste"

May 21, 2013  |  By AngeleGlona

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 1.2.2

Pros

This is one of the best non-linear video editors that I ever tried! Me agree with the previous commentator that the program is more difficult than Windows Movie Maker, but its capacities can't be compared with ordinary video editors, they just enable to cut and glue video fragments. VSDC enable for example to remove background plane and to start another video instead of the removed background. And it is my main target- I'm often requested to remove background relatively to a girl performing a weather forecast and to replace it by wideo with moving clouds, sun, etc. So try to do the same thing in Windows Movie Maker and analogue underprograms. Or for example when you need video fragment to move along complex trajectory, create fire effect, etc. Maybe repeat myself, but I'm convinced that as free product this program is excellent!

Cons

Program is subject to examination for more than 10 minutes

Summary

I expect updated program release with new video effects, for example with water or fire effects, I really need them

"Couldn't figure it out."

May 20, 2013  |  By skaizun

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 1.2.2

Pros

None from what I could see.

Cons

VSDC Free Video Editor (aka, Flash Integro) was very difficult to use. I couldn't figure out how to insert JPG files and video files.

Summary

FWIW, I use Windows Movie Maker and other, similar, video editing software. On the face of it, the user interface for VSDC is not that different from those, yet, after struggling with it for about 10 minutes, I gave up, and removed it from my computer.

"Still learning it, BUT..."

April 27, 2013  |  By Syrinx77

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 1.2.2

Pros

I'm still feeling my way around it. So far it Does what I got it for. (split screen videos)

Cons

Though it's still early in my experience with VSDC, one thing I can already say that prevents me from giving it a higher rating is the spy/mal/whatever-ware that came with it. Some crap called "Mixi Dj". Google it. It made itself my new browser *and* installed some tool bar. (along with something *else* called "Gavin") Had to do a spyware cleaning to get rid of it. I thought I was safe since I downloaded it right from CNET. Was I wrong.

Summary

I guess when these things are free, you get what you pay for.

"My search is over. Yea!"

April 09, 2013  |  By Tammynise

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 1.2.2

Pros

I just downloaded this and haven't got to use it much but just in trying it out I have to say that it performed above my expectations from a free software. I have searched and search and found free trials or complicated UI's or limited functionality products. I was just about to give up. After searching through CNet's many pages of "video editing" software pages and narrowing the search to "free" I finally found VSDC. It actually should be on the front page. Currently, I can't fund a software purchase and this was a breath of fresh air. It's user friendly (even though I am a little techie)with a great layout and super functionality. It offers lots of effects both in video and audio. It also can output to the most popular formats. It is very possible to create a professional movie/video with this software. I'm happy I found it and will be looking at this company for other needs both paid or free.

Cons

Haven't found any yet. Seriously, I hardly ever write reviews because I'm busy but this find merited a review. I did take heed to the "6 in 1" review above and decided to download from the developers website. I'm not in the market for malware right now. It doesn't record but that wasn't a problem for me.

Summary

VSDC is a super quality video editing freeware program that most beginners and advanced designers would enjoy.Unless you are making a Hollywood movie then this software should meet your needs.

"Secretly installs malware"

February 26, 2013  |  By jd_in_sb

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 1.2.2

Pros

It sounds great before you actually install.

Cons

I ran the setup program, and before I could even initiate the install, it secretly installed "Coupon Companion" to my Windows 7 computer. Coupon Companion secretly adds annoying pop-up advertisements to all web pages that you browse. It also installs a service to Windows to run in the background, and a program to run every time you start your computer. My ZoneAlarm firewall then detected Coupon Companion's attempt to secretly send data to an IP address in the Netherlands.

Summary

Avoid this program, it installs malware
