I recently was given a free copy of Wondershare's Video Converter Ultimate in exchange for my review. Over the many years that I've been using computers, I have learned to treat every computer product cautiously until proven safe or relevant. I've concluded that while not every tool in this program will be useful for every single person (some may be too complex for the average user), this software is something everyone can get some good use out of in today's ever-growing digital age.
For those less savvy in the tech world, don't fret just yet. Wondershare does a wonderful job of keeping its software very user-friendly to install and very user-friendly to play with. After following the instructions to install the program on your machine and registering your product, it looks like this:
You can see how user-friendly it is right off the bat. The interfaces are conspicuously shown and its clear what each button is for. You can start converting videos, music, and pictures within minutes of installation.
How this software can save you money:Now as a parent, and I'm sure many parents have gone through this ordeal before...there is always that one DVD your kids love but never seem to take care of. Before you know it, their favorite movie you paid $20 for is all scratched up and unreadable. (The result being a waste of $20 and what would have been an otherwise occupied and happy child watching their movie.) The situation is mostly inevitable but luckily Wondershare helps us with that.
If you click on the menu options in the top left, then hit "Tutorial and FAQ" button, the program will open up your default browser to their tutorials page. From there you can select the option on how to make backup copies of DVDs you already own into virtually any format. Sounds simple enough, right?
And it can do even more:Saving DVD movies isn't all this program has to offer though. In this advanced digital age, we capture life through cell phones, video cameras, voice recorders, and a plethora of other devices. Many of them have different ways of saving those precious or funny moments and what ends up happening is that a file made by one device can't be viewed on another. Again, Wondershare to the rescue. For instance, if you recorded a video on your iPhone and it can't play on your computer or Android device, you can just change the type of video it is to a type that can be played on any device.
As if that wasn't cool enough...Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate can also download a webpage and make an audio or video file from it. For instance, with this function you can copy the address or URL of your favorite YouTube music video and paste it into the "Add URL" of the program. You then have the option of having the program make a file of the music video on your computer or just the music by itself as a mp3. This is all made easier by downloading the Wondershare Video Converter add-on if you use the Firefox Browser.
My favorite part?You can increase or decrease the quality of a video. Why would you want to decrease it? Well, videos with less quality don't take up as much space on a computer or cellular device, and they are also more easily uploaded to a website like YouTube. By the same token, there are times you want the best quality of a video, such as for making DVDs or making copies of movies you already own on the computer. This program can make a subpar video captured with a cell phone and increase it to DVD-quality. Examples of this are shown in the pictures below.
As you can see from the screenshots above, the pictures on the left are from the original source while the pictures on the right are after they have been increased in quality by the program. It eliminated the blur almost completely and added more detail.
The list of utilities of this product go on and on. Burn DVDs of your videos, burn music CDs, edit videos with special effects, take multiple videos and merge them into one video, 3D conversions, add subtitles, edit music, screen recording function, or convert audio and video files to different sizes and types depending on your needs.
I was pretty impressed with this software and the obvious time & effort that the people at Wondershare have put into their product. I did not encounter any problems or bugs (glitches) while using it.
Bottom line?Whether you are a new-comer to a product like this or a tech-savvy software junkie, the Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate is a program that I fully recommend.
