Editors' Review

Wondershare's Video Converter Ultimate is, as its name suggests, the ultimate video utility for Windows users. But more than just a file converter, the program is a DVD ripper, DVD burner, Web video downloader, 2D-to-3D converter, audio ripper, and even a bare-bones video editor.

It's interface is simple and straightforward, as it has all the major functions laid out as icons along the top of the window. All of the controls are intuitive, and it even lets you drag-and-drop video files.

For the most part, Video Converter Ultimate performs exceptionally well. Exactly as advertised, it lets you quickly and easily convert files between just about any combination of formats. It also makes it super simple to output to a mobile device. To do so, you simply have to select your device from its extensive menu, and watch as it converts your video to the optimum file format. The program will even copy the file directly onto your device in a single click. As as we mentioned, Video Converter Ultimate even has the tools to trim video, crop, add watermarks, change brightness, contrast, and more.

The only issue we ran into was with the download online video function. It worked well with YouTube, but we found it to be incompatible with some of the other sites we visited. We were able to work around some of the incompatibilities by using the Record video onscreen function, but we're still hoping the issue gets ironed out.

One thing we'd love to see incorporated is the ability to record onscreen actions for tutorial-style videos. While this obviously isn't a necessity, we think it would fit well with the program's current feature set.

WonderShare's Video Converter Ultimate is an extremely powerful app that's sure to meet just about every one of your video conversion needs. What's more, it can easily rip and burn DVDs, convert to 3D, download from the Web, perform basic edits, and export to just about any mobile device. Overall, we think this download is definitely a winner.

"AWFUL BUT ZERO STARS ISNT ALLOWED"

September 22, 2012  |  By Videodilema

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 5.6.1

Pros

NONE AT ALL!

Cons

DOESNT WORK AT ALL

Summary

LOADED DVD FILES OK LOOKS LIKE ITS WORKING BUT ONLY GIVES A STRANGE ACCESS DENIED WHEN ITS DONE. NO VIDEO IS CONVERTED, FOLDERS CONTAIN 0KB. WOULD NOT ADD .AVI .MP4 OR UNCOMPRESSED YUYV. PERHAPS CNET TRIED A BOX SET? CUZ THIS IS THE MOST HORRIBLE YET. IT DID DOWNLOAD THOUGH WHICH IS MORE THAN I COULD SAY FOR ADOBE. IM ON XP PRO W/ ATI 6500 PRO CARD. NOT HIGH END BUT WORKS WELL WITH OTHER VIDEO PROGRAMS. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME

"Terrible-Ultimate for Mac doesnt do wot it says it does"

May 15, 2012  |  By MrScottTV

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 5.6.1

Pros

Its not overly expensive. It can rip DVDs.

Cons

Downloading web videos is difficult and often doesnt work.
Upgrades dont fix anything.
Product support often ends up accepting that there are faults with their programme and promises they will look into fixing it in the future. It hasn't happened yet.
Not enough option in video size. Doesn't work well for 16:9 videos. Adds letterbox to everything when making DVDs.
In trying to make it "simple" to use they have left out many options that would be useful.

Summary

This product is far from "Ultimate".
I would advise you to stay clear of it.

"If it's Wondershare you know it's excellent!"

April 13, 2012  |  By LiliaMSU

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 5.6.1

Pros

The best ... EVER!

Cons

None, nada, niente...!

Summary

I was lucky, I got this great program for free, and it's the best Converter out there. I had 6 or 7 Converters - all gifts from Giveaway sites. I did not know which was better so I tried them all. After Wondershare I uninstalled 5 of them and kept only two: MacX HD Video Converter and Wondershare Ultimate. Finally my search for that perfect Converter is over!

"Very slow. DVD to Wii SDHC card. 13 hours 73% complete."

January 01, 2012  |  By baldwind

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 5.6.1

Pros

UI looks good. Easy to start. From what I've read the WonderShare support is great!

Cons

DVD to Wii convert extremely slow. 1.7GB movie 13 hours and displays 7 hours to go. Based on this; a full 4GB movie should take 2+ days to convert. If this normal than this is unacceptable for my use.

Summary

C|NET and WonderShare made this sound so good so I bought this $40.00. If this software was free I would uninstall and look for something else alot quicker. PLEASE NOTE I've only tried the DVD to Wii feature which I;m quessing C|NET couldn't test drive. I haven't contacted WonderShare yet for help but I will. I'm sure WonderShare didn't intend/design DVD to Wii process to span over 2 days to convert. Maybe I need to re-install software. I'm running this on a dual-core 1.6GHz intel system with 2GB ram and 500GB HDD.
