What makes this better than MediaCoder?

Hi Tuxman:

iWisoft free video converter can be downloaded and installed more easily and quickly. It supports more video and audio formats conversion, even hd video, mkv, recorded dv video and video to image conversion. It's designed with user-friendly interface which make it more easier to use. It has additional useful functions, such as crop video, trim & merge video or audio, watermark your video, add effect like gamma, brightness, contrast, saturation, and gray, emboss, negative, old film, take snapshots from video while previewing, etc. And it will be free and safe forever.

These days it seems everyone has a mencoder, ffdshow, etc. etc. front-end. I suppose a ton of these kinds of programs for easy video conversion is better than none. :D It's nice not to have to use SUPER or MediaCoder, neither of which has the best UI or stability record...

Mediacoder's author and software are sketchy.  He was caught serving hidden advertisements in his custom Firefox interface, and is so worried about getting money that in my opinion he should be removed from Sourceforge and stop calling his software Free. 

Super is powerful completely free, but has a clunky interface that takes getting used to.  I do love me some Super however.

I also use Format Factory, but the author of the software is horrible at providing any support, and the ability to convert audio always errors out on me, through 3 different machine formats and two operating systems.

The software above has a nice interface and is fairly powerful.  I am always leery of folks who drop in and promote their free software, thinking there is an alternate agenda, but that is just my old man on the Internet paranoia talking.  I like this so far.  Thanks for letting us know about it!

Stick around and enjoy all this site has to offer.

Hmmm...the iWisoft screenshots do look interesting. I notice they also have a paid product which they have the right to mention in their free software.

But I'm wondering if somebody can tell me how "pushy" they are about promoting their paid software. I mean, I have a few adware apps and I'm appreciative that I didn't have to pay for those particular softwares. However, I've also had "free" apps which were so aggressively promotional that the "free" wasn't worth the considerable annoyance. You know...buy now, buy now... ad infinitum. :tellme:

They aren't.  The software is fast and versatile, with a lot of ready to use options such as video formats for mobile devices which I use quite often.  I give this one a thumbs up.  :Thmbsup:

Thanks for the report! It's always best to hear from other people who use the apps you use testing out a new app. I may give it a go...

I also like Format Factory.  I mentioned it in another thread I started here about good converters.

Thought I might mention my experience here:
I installed iWisoft Free Video Converter v1.2 today and it seems to work a treat. Is pretty fast.
I had wanted to compress an MP4 video into a smaller file/format, but everything the Converter produced seemed to be a lot bigger in file size. Quality of the output video seemed to be good in all cases (converted to 4 different formats) that I tried - which is not so in several other freeware converters that I have tried.

Can anyone here point me to something that can compress MP4 significantly with minimal loss of sound/audio quality?

@IainB:
I think superboyac is referring to this DC What's Best thread which might give you some ideas about what folks are using to convert video.

I agree this free software looks good, but every time I launch iWisoft Free Video Converter it attempts to load their webpage in order to check for updates.:huh: Perhaps I overlooked it, but I don't see in the options how to set manual updates. I realize I can use firewall and/or HIPS to stop this behavior, but I still find it annoying for a non-security app to check/update without user consent.

Thanks sajman99.
I went to that What's Best thread, and ended up downloading and installing FormatFactory.
If you go there, you will see that I have posted a warning about FormatFactory.

WARNING!!! Virus/Trojan/Adware alert with FormatFactory!

ilioyu, this is good software!  Good job.
I'm now using iwisoft's converter instead of Format Factory.  i think it's a good program, FWIW.
