Cucusoft Video Converter Ultimate is a complete conversion solution enabling users to play their favorite videos on any portable device, such as iPod video, iPod touch, iPod video nano, iPhone, PSP, Zune, Pocket PC and mobile phones.

Cucusoft Video Converter Ultimate is considered one of the most powerful conversion tools and it supports a large variety of output formats, including:

- H.264, Mp4, AVI, MOV, WMV, RM, SWF, FLV, 3GP, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, Video CD, Super Video CD, DVD, WMA, AAC, AC3, MP2, MP3, MP4, RA and many others.

Regarding input, Cucusoft Video Converter Ultimate can handle any video DVD disc that is supported and played by computers and DVD players.

The program has a clean and intuitive interface and supports batch processing. The user needs to select input files, choose output destination and profile and the encoding process can start. The result can be previewed in the built-in media player.

Unlike other conversion applications from Cucusoft, this one allows you to adjust audio and video properties: bit rate, frame rate, size, aspect ratio, channel mode, volume, sample frequency rate and others.

There are three modes users can select when using this application:

Direct Mode (directly clicking the DVD menu to select the movie they want to rip), Batch Mode (selecting the DVD titles or chapter they want to rip using a checkbox list) and 1 Click Mode, where the user just clicks once to open the DVD and the rest of the task is performed automatically.

Cucusoft Video Converter Ultimate is a complex application, offering a wide range of features for fast conversion. The program uses a large amount of system resources, but its response time is quick and the output image quality is very good.

Do not buy it as when the newest Windows 10 came in, it stopped working and cannot get past the no copy code and no one to assist you to get it fixed.

I loved and now think they are no longer a good program to use.

I used to recommend it to many that bought it so I now apologize for how they are now that I could not anticipate.

I used it for years and now it is a dead program on my computer

It does a good job in converting.

The problem is that since 2008, they do not offer support other then auto emails that do nothing or no response and no one to call.

If you want a converter it does a good job for me on three computers. When you move up and required to by Microsoft to Windows 10 you lose the ability for it to recognize your pass code and it is that long number you get when you buy it.

So every time you turn your computer back on, and want to use Cucusoft, it makes you reenter the name and pass code. It is frustrating but still works but the waste of time is bad. There was a codec I am told to add and this then allows the passcode to stay after off and on but I have not found it and Cucusoft will not respond at all.

I will go to another one and never buy it again as no support. I find most reviews say no support but it is a good converter with no support.

Initially, when it worked, I was satisfied. However, several weeks ago it stopped working.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling; when I launch the installer, it says an instance of the program is already running.

I've emailed Cucusoft's tech support seven or eight times over the past month, and always get a scripted answer, which tells me to do what I've already done. Sent them screenshots, etc - never get past the 1st tier support. Save yourself a lot of grief; get *advertising* Ultimate Video Converter.

It's faster, has as many conversion options, and their support staff appear to respond to questions (I've emailed two so far and have received usable answers within an hour).
