Editors' Review

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.

"Totally Worthless - Creates Problems and Adds NO Value"

April 12, 2015  |  By happydevo55

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.1.0

Pros

None that I can see

Cons

Does not work correctly and uninstall is a hassle - does not fully uninstall itself. You need to go in manually and remove it. Tried the trial version on my laptop to convert WTV to MP4 with Win 8 and the files were audio only. On my EPC where the files were generated they show audio and video, but fail to convert (note I have used and converted them with Freemake Video converter and they work fine, but get sync problems occasionally, so wanted something more reliable). Still looking as Wondershare is obviously NOT the solution. To add insult to injury the website asks for feedback when you uninstall it, but there is NO submit button to give them the feedback - what a bunch of clowns. I had no objection to buying the full version if it worked, but given the trial version wouldn't even work, I would never think of handing over money to this company.

Summary

Do NOT install this as you are wasting your time, and it is a hassle to fully uninstall.

"Horrible and Evil"

March 28, 2015  |  By mdawg897

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.0.5

Pros

It didn't kill me.

Cons

-video quality is atrocious
-Downloaded the free version, proceeded to spend lots of time editing it. Then, when trying to export the final product, a HUGE watermark was put over the entire film. There was no indication that there would be a watermark, and the only way to get rid of it is to purchase the software.

Summary

Evil. Conniving. Wasted hours of time, than tried to force me to purchase its sub-par software.

"Innovative!"

January 08, 2015  |  By zhangjiamam

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.0.2

Pros

Easy to use. Provides all known conversion formats for your devices. Affordable and a very nice interface in the video player.

Cons

Only one problem. For inserted subtitles it is good if you can \"move\" the subtitles on vertical position.

Summary

this is everything I\'ve been looking for

January 06, 2015  |  By zhaomeilig

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.0.2

Pros

What a wonder , simple program

Cons

The program took seconds to load from its own installed shortcut

"Excellent BUT"

January 06, 2015  |  By lyxiaofeng

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.0.2

Pros

A great program in every respect with good balance between simple attractive user interface and yet plenty of options.

Cons

The program took seconds to load from its own installed shortcut.

Summary

A great program in every respect. I have only two complaints. !. The program took seconds to load from its own installed shortcut? When I create my own shortcut The program loads instantly ?? 2, I would have liked choice in whether I installed the download helper and its associated windows services. I had to disable the feature myself. I would consider myself a bit of a geek, so these complaints probably don't apply to most people. Overall Video Converter is probably the best of its kind because of the balance between simple attractive user interface and yet plenty of options when you want them. Very close to being a 5 star program.

"A stupid video editor that barely does anything!"

January 05, 2015  |  By maxb

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.0.2

Pros

A stupid video editor that barely does anything! Harder than hell to cut and splice videos together, very time consuming and difficult to do even basic functions

Cons

A stupid video editor that barely does anything! Harder than hell to cut and splice videos together, very time consuming and difficult to do even basic functions

Summary

A stupid video editor that barely does anything! Harder than hell to cut and splice videos together, very time consuming and difficult to do even basic functions! I wasted 3 hours repeatedly doing things over and over because the software is so screwed up it deletes stuff when your trying to clip it and its harder than hell to set end and beginning points on video clips! The kicker is after all that wastes time I when to export the video and the stupid thing puts a water mark the fills the whole dam screen not just in the corner. The video is unwatchable. stupid, never going to buy any of their junk ever!

"***DO NOT BUY HORRIBLE PRODUCT"

January 02, 2015  |  By lunker05

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.0.2

Pros

Nothing...

Cons

It does not work
Horrible customer service

Summary

I bought this product to make a video DVD video for my sisters wedding. I spent many many many wasted hours creating a video montage and could never get it to fully download. I tried for two weeks with several attempts and after downloading and creating a montage I never got a final product. I contacted the company and they were unable to help me and refused a refund. I will never use the product again nor would I ever purchase something from this company in the future. PLEASE DO NOT BUY!

"Not recommended"

December 29, 2014  |  By neerb

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.0.2

Pros

Nothing...

Cons

On installation it tries to cheat to install unauthorized apps / PUP.
It worked only with approx. 1% of my videos
Not stable. Hangs and crashes all the time.
Upon uninstall it left behind files and running processes that crashes, and freezes with 100% CPU consumption.

Summary

Avoid it if possible

"Awesome Video Converter"

December 28, 2014  |  By finalpass

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 8.0.2

Pros

I have been using the Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate since its version 5.x. It is very fast and multi files can be converted at the same time. I recently downloaded the version 6.8. It is quite wonderful, the video trim function become more powerful than before and I like the self-input start time and end time very much. The time line which I can drag the video playing time become more smooth. The output file size is not very big but with a quite good video quality. To conclude, it is a simple but very powerful video converting software.

Cons

None. Been using this product since they came out.
