Editors' Review

+
This one-trick pony only converts your WAV files into MP3 format, but at least it's totally free. WAV to MP3 Encoder works quickly, and the interface is simple: just drag and drop files directly from Windows Explorer. However, as its name suggest, the application doesn't support other audio formats the way more comprehensive programs do. Also, though you can of course choose the bit rate of your new audio files, you won't find a VBR option. However, if you're looking for a way to compress WAV files in the MP3 format and your jukebox of choice lacks conversion skills, this application makes an acceptable, if somewhat medicore, option.

"Failure rate too high"

July 12, 2013  |  By txbd75

 |  Version: WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0 r1

Pros

It's free - that's about all you can say for it.

Cons

After declining half a dozen crap-ware addons during installation, I tested 10 wav files. It said that 1/2 were not a supported format (they play fine in WMP). Three that it did convert failed to run and two played fine.

A waste of time....

"Basic - worked fine"

July 05, 2013  |  By Phylissn822

 |  Version: WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0 r1

Pros

This really helped me to do my conversions very well - I have formally bid adieu to my bulky WAV tracks thanks to this software. Interface was amazing - simple and one step - not too many questions - options which makes it user friendly.

Cons

Thanks for this product - I faced no problems

"Fine tool, brings WebCake adware with it."

July 01, 2013  |  By DreadLlama

 |  Version: WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0 r1

Pros

It's exactly what it says

Cons

>Installs webcake adware no matter what you do (based on google, this allows intrusive and annoying popups as well as reduced computer performance and browser crashes)
>Alters start keys so that webcake will boot each time your computer turns on
>crashed my chrome browser and disallowed it restarting for roughly 5 minutes until I tracked down and destroyed the culprit

Despite asking for permission, regardless of your answer you are signing up to be the latest bit of data for a tool called "WebCake". It's a horrible little tool that attempts to set a registry key to run at startup, installs some drivers, and aims to watch all you do on your browser. The only bit you get a say in is whether or not you want to see their ads pumped to your browser in a toolbar but the adware comes regardless. This is what many are seeing flagged as a trojan and that's exactly what it is-just specialized toward ads. Doesn't mean you should trust it. Likewise my trust for Cnet is now ruined.

Summary

It brings with it a trojan that installs WebCake adware whether you want it to or not. As a result I no longer trust Cnet nor this little tool at all.

"My anti-virus says this is a Trojan."

June 24, 2013  |  By fgerwig

 |  Version: WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0 r1

Pros

There are no Pros

Cons

Cons all the way. My PC won't even install this. It says it is a Trojan and deletes it automatically.

"Simple, works fast, free."

June 20, 2013  |  By elderone1

 |  Version: WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0 r1

Pros

Worked as advertised, and the interface is simple and intuitive.

Cons

Some reviews cautioned about included virus. My security software indeed found and isolated what it identified as a virus. When I authorized the virus deletion, the entire application was deleted. I believe some aspect of the code looks like a virus to security software, but is just part of the program.

Summary

I reverted to an upgrade version of alternate software I already had installed, just in case my theory was wrong.
