The box clearly states "easily convert your DVDs..." but it does not do it. As soon as you load the software it tells you that it will not convert any copy protected DVD content, and that means virtually everything you would ever want to watch.
Could not get any function to work from any format. Even the uninstall program does not work properly.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
At the time of writing this product is not even listed on x-oom's own web pages, leading me to suspect that perhaps the amazon vine program is being used as some kind of pre-release late beta test. Whatever.

I am not particularly interested in converting DVDs to my iPod, but I did want to download YouTube clips and convert my own videos. I like the idea of carrying around a small library of clips.

This program will download the clips from YouTube (and a number of other video sharing sites), and it will easily convert your own files. But the audio/video sync on the conversions is lost, rendering the whole process redundant.

Furthermore, to get the converted videos onto the iPod you still have to launch iTunes and tell it to look in the appropriate folder, even though this program launches iTunes and has it running in parallel.

As if that wasn't enough of a waste of time after running this program iTunes refuses to start on it's own. I had to uninstall the program and re-boot before I could get back into iTunes, at which point it became clear that the program had fiddled with my iTunes settings, which iTunes then had to restore.

Anyone who makes a program that threatens my 100gb music library is no friend of mine.

To summarise

*the program does not deal with copyrighted DVDs.
*audio sync is lost in conversion.
*it messes with iTunes.
*you still need to use iTunes to get the files onto your iPod.
*you still need to tell iTunes where to look.
*it does nothing useful that cannot be obtained for free elsewhere.

This is what I call promiseware.

(For the record, I was using an up to date version of XP and iTunes.)

I spent hours trying to get this programme to do what it promises but got nowhere. It drove me insane and nearly caused a huge row when for a moment or two it appeared to have caused me to lose my daughter's whole iPod library. The worst software I have ever tried to use and I definitely do not recommend it.

After giving this a go numerous times and fiddling around with it in every way possible, I've come to the final conclusion. It does not work. Not only that, it's made a mess of my pc (bluescreens happen all the time), itunes won't load up anymore and I get frustrated at every other thing about this abysmal product. Please do not get this product, it's such a wreck and it's made so much damage to my computer it's unbelievable.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Lets start off with my real problem with this program.

This product cannot copy protected DVD's, which encompasses pretty much every store-bought DVD. The only way to do this would be to use some form of decoder first to backup your DVD, however, the laws about doing this are a bit dodgy and would advise against it, so that's probably the biggest reason for getting this product thrown out of the window!

So, after a painful install on my Vista machine i started up the program. A message came up saying there was an update, so i clicked update and what a surprise, "error on update server".

With DVD's (apart from home-recorded ones) out of the window, i checked out what this thing was like converting video files, and after numerous freezings, managed to get it to work. The conversion time was no better than that of a program like PSP Video 9 which can also be used to convert videos to a format that the iPod can play and is free.

Overall, i would not advise this program.

I'm sorry to say that I have to agree with the other reviewers... This program just doesn't seem to work.

The install ran successfully but that was it. When I start the program it also opens iTunes (which doesn't bother me) but then when I click on the button to convert a file to the iPhone format it brings up the options I need... I then click the browse button to find a file I would like to convert and... nothing happens! The cursor goes into busy mode until you click elsewhere but never does it open the window that would let me select a file to convert.

The ability to be able to convert from Youtube or Google video files really appealled. However, when you search for something it says that nothing matches your search criteria... it doesn't matter what keyword I search for apparently this program says Youtube doesn't have a video that matches. Tsk!

Also the web-tv it lets you access is a selection of poor channels that you wouldn't want to watch anyway... and even then some of them don't connect and won't play.

Basically I couldn't get this program to do any of what it says it will. I wanted to review the product I received so didn't let it update to the latest version automatically. After having all these problems I thought I'd try doing just that in the hope of solving them. I shut down the program and restarted it and i asked me if I would like to update to the latest version. Yes, please! Unfortunately when I clicked the update button it said there was an error and it can't update. I shouldn't have expected anything more.

Avoid this. There are programs out there that can do these functions for free. Don't pay for something that doesn't work.
