Installed this to convert AVI files produced by Adobe Premier to the more compact MP4 format. Installation did involve a number of product offers, which were easily and uneventfully declined. Norton Internet Security announced to me that its rating of this program is "good." Installation was trouble free. I dragged my small AVI file into the program, and it appeared as a row in a list of items to be converted, with MP4 selected as the output format by default. I selected a different output folder in options and triggered conversion. Conversion was very quick and at "medium" quality it produced a file that was 1 MB from my original 27MB AVI file. I played the file and it was flawless. Aside from the product promos, the business model of this program seems to be to request an upgrade for a paltry 5 dollars. I'm going to upgrade as soon as I've used it for a while. What's not to like about this thing? It does what it says, without any hassle, and apparently does it quite well.
Tries to install 3rd party software without telling you (does, however, post a EULA for each piece of software which alerts the wise to what is being installed - even if there is no 'name' on the UELA). Did not work correctly for me in converting a m2ts file to a flv. Will now uninstall and run malwarebytes and spybot.
