"Bad software but support is even worse"

January 25, 2015  |  By mcpublic

 |  Version: Video Hoster 5.31


I was able to download and review a demo and also ask numerous questions before being asked to pay for the product.

Unfortunately, none of my questions were answered and most of the questions which I posted to the "support center" were never even updated to a "reviewed" status. I gave up after hoping and waiting for weeks.


The software is poorly built. I would say poorly designed but that would give too much credit to the builder(s) who obviously is not a software designer.

Example, on just one screen, there are three different places to independently adjust the key for the same song and same vocalist. After waiting weeks, my support request remains unanswered regarding why there are three different independent places on the same screen to change the key for the same song and vocalist and what the impact of changing any one of them would be to the program for that day or the vocalist's database.

This is just one example of multiple unanswered questions I posted to the support center. Many have a status indicating they still have not even been read after numerous days. Perhaps, the Support Center program may be as faulty as Hoster itself.


If you are looking for a toy, give it a try.

If your time is valuable or you are putting your reputation on the line using karaoke software professionally, I encourage you to seek better software and test out their support.

BTW, instead of giving a straight written answer to one of my specific support center submissions about how this software was supposed to work, he expected me to let him get into my PC remotely, take control over it, and then take my time to talk to me about it. I reiterated my desire to receive a written response, in part because it was absent in the HELP files and because I didn't think it wise to let a complete stranger run my PC remotely.

I never heard from him again in spite of me submitting additional specific Support Center questions as a potential customer.

NEVER let a stranger take control of your computer remotely if you have, or ever even expect in the future to have, personal data on it!

I am a retired I/T professional who has done every step of software development and implementation for multiple multi-million dollar companies. As such, my professional opinion is that this software was pieced together by one hobbyist type person who has precious little analysis, design, programming, implementation, and customer service skills.

Issues abound not only in Hoster but are even more apparent should you venture into the HELP files and try to use Customer Support Center.

FINAL WARNING: Do not be misled by the name: This appears to be a tiny one man web site and niche application that has nothing at all to do with MTU.EDU
