Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate

CNET 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.

    Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 6.0.1

    Pros

    none that I can find

    Cons

    Bad product- Wondershare Recovery- misleading, zero customer service. ZERO

    Summary

    Wondershare offers "free download and scan". After scanning, 27 files found for recovery. Hit recovery button- must buy. OK. After purchase, still grey buttons. Customer service? NONE. Online contact form? Doesn't work. So, restart computer. Open Wondershare- error "Pirated Registration #". So,read email from WS. "Use URL provided in email to insure receipt of software. So,I uninstall free scan; download new one from URL. SCAN~ ZERO, NADA, NONE, NOPE you have no files to recover. NO SUPPORT AVAILABLE. YET THEY SPORTS CNET on their website.

    "Read the title of the Application!!"

    February 8, 2013  |   By medianview

    Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 6.0.1

    Pros

    This video converter is perfect for CONVERTING. I use everyday at work to create digitized videos for educational use. Very simple and easy interface. Many formats and customizable presets make creating the correct file easy. New update allows multiple conversions simultaneously.

    Cons

    The new update does not allow for second by second cutting when converting, like previous version. There is no real editing features that someone would use besides cutting takes. However, if you are looking for video editing software then do not buy a video converter.

    Summary

    Wondershare has been a life saver and time saver when converting DVDs to digital files. While it has some small features, it is not meant to be an editing program. If you need to convert DVDs to digital files this is a great tool.

    "WATCH CNET TECH TRACKER"

    December 29, 2012  |   By Luchanov1

    Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 6.0.1

    Pros

    Product is very good. but do you want to pay again?

    Cons

    But thanks to CNET tracker tracker it updated to a new version and guess what - the new version doesn't accept the license details etc...I bought this product feb 2012 via CNET so i'm very disappointed that using tech tracker leads to you to losing your purchased product and having to buy it again - if you really want it. Online help from wondershare is a waste of time too.

    "Wondershare is a very worthwhile Video Converter"

    December 20, 2012  |   By TheMimic12

    Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 6.0.1

    Pros

    -Downloads YouTube videos as any format, even as an iTunes format.
    -Converts any existing file to another format.
    -Plays videos

    Cons

    -Downloading must be done through the applications baked-in browser, making the download icon in Firefox useless
    -The download icon appears next to any pop-up add
    -converted videos have a watermark, trying to get you to buy premium software

    Summary

    I searched the internet looking for a converter that would allow me to download YouTube videos to my computer. This worked out well, but the watermark appeared when I converted it to WMV. However, I was able to download it. Overall, this is definitely worth the download.

    "REGISTRY DAMAGE AFTER ATTEMPTED REMOVAL!"

    December 20, 2012  |   By sfsmacks

    Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 6.0.1

    Pros

    I was able to cut my 1 movie. Thats about it.

    Cons

    -I tried a simple uninstall and I had registry damage, so now my computer doesn't recognize WMV files at all. Meaning playing it, or knowing what tha hell it is!
    -WAYYYY tooo slow. Without exaggeration. It took about 20-30 mins to apply a ~50 second cut from a ~2 minute movie, without considering the time it took me to figure the whole interface out.

    Summary

    Can someone please help me in what to do? And if you do, thank you. I know this takes precious time out of a persons day, especially since its almost Christmas but any tip would help :)

    ""Terrible application""

    December 20, 2012  |   By gnarlymanwipeout

    Version: Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 6.0.1

    Pros

    User interface looks cool.
    I wish I had something better to say about this app.

    Cons

    Item not as described.
    Item not very free as described.
    The free version was useless for mp4 file conversions into a movie maker.

    Summary

    Caused slight damage to registry after removal. YIKES!!
    There are much better apps for free, and certainly for the money.
    I wouldn't recommend this product to any one.
    This program is a wipe-out!!
