Anyone here use this program and want to share your thouhgts? I'd be interested to hear how well it performs and how fast it encodes. I use a handful of freeware apps that combined give me the functionality of VideoSuite (at least, the parts that I need), and I probably won't give them up for a paid-for solution unless there are obvious benefits - like faster encoding.

I played with the previous version and it was pretty cool - nicely designed, great UI. I'll have to check out v4. I typically don't like free tools because they're usually ugly and hard to use. :lol:

I bought their version 3.5 last Christmas when they had a special offer for 50% off. I just had one day to try it because of the deadline for the special price.

But afterwards I was surprise to see they have very few presets; worst they don't have VGA option for PDAs and the only PMP they support is the PSP (no Archos, etc, nothing).

It's rather hard to figure out the right setup for my VGA Pocket LOOX as it's impossible to guess the resulting file size like some recent apps we can find here on the programs area.

Didn't have time to explore all the options to find the optimal setting, nor to send them an email to explain it all.

Hope the newer version 4 corrects this.
