Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate converts videos between a multitude of formats and exports them to chosen devices. Version 7.0 corrects bugs related to Web downloading errors and adds support for a large number of smartphones and tablets.

Pros

One-stop video solution: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate can edit, download, convert, and burn your videos, as well as handle well-thought-out transfers between Web, hard disks, and optical media. It packages everything in an uncomplicated, flexible, and original interface.

Speedy conversions: We managed to convert five minutes of SD MP4 files in just 15 seconds, while a feature DVD film was ripped and converted to a Samsung Galaxy S3-compatible format in 1h 30min on a basic dual core laptop. The conversion times, while not the fastest, are comparable to those of other video apps.

Nice editing features: Although basic, the editing features are well designed and do not feel like an afterthought. Details like the watermark make the app suitable for Web video work.

Cons

Crashing Android app: We never managed to wirelessly transfer any videos to our Samsung Galaxy S3 as the Wondershare Player app (version 2.6.6) kept crashing at the barcode recognition stage, blocking our smartphone and forcing us to do a complete restart.

Price: At $59.95 we are at the more expensive end of video conversion applications. Given that virtually all the features are available in freeware and Web-based apps, we feel that Wondershare is positioning itself out of the market here.

Bottom Line

With its broad format support and super practical user interface, Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate deserves to be called a good video converter, especially since it includes basic editing and authoring, DVD burning, and downloading from popular video streaming Web sites. Unfortunately, the price of the full software is far too high for the functionality it offers.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 7.1.2.

"SERIOUS DEFICIENCIES, WORTHLESS WARRANTY"

September 09, 2016  |  By Scruffy-1

2016-09-09 23:07:20  |  By Scruffy-1

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.7.0

Pros

Probably quite comprehensive, but I couldn't tell from the trial version

Cons

Trial version is crippled, probably to discourage serious evaluation, and to disguise the deficiencies with this product. If you do attempt to edit a video of significant length, you'll find it very difficult to position the cursor to pick up a cut point - there is no search speed or microdrive, forward or backward, only single frame stepping. There's no means to save a project to continue editing later, or to guard against software or hardware failure.
And don't bother to take them up on their "money back if not satisfied" warranty - once they've got your dough you won't hear from them again.

Summary

I bought this software on the basis of a couple of good reviews from the professional reviewers. It is sad that their efforts are so superficial they didn't identify the deficiencies. Well silly me, but I've learned the lesson: ignore official reviews, look at the users' comments.

"Too much crap installed"

September 07, 2016

2016-09-07 07:28:05

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.7.0

Pros

None - the free version is useless for conversion due to severe video length restrictions.

Cons

Installs startup items and other hidden software without approval. These remain even after uninstalling the software.

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.7.0

Pros

As an all-in-one video converter, Wondershare can't rip Blu-ray,a shame.

Summary

I find Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate can convert video and also can rip DVD and Blu-ray. It is also cheaper than Wondershare.

2016-07-19 08:19:50  |  By kwtheway

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.7.0

Pros

Nothing what so ever

Cons

trial software will only convert part of file, but they don't tell you this before you download so you waste your time, but that's the least of it. the software won't uninstall cleanly leaving a trail of garbage on your hard drive and registry, and it tries to autorun on start up

Summary

Don't download even if free
