AVS4YOU software costed its price - the best video editor I've ever tried. Easy to use and not feature-overwhelmed. It helped me to prepare a short film for my brother's birthday and I would like to thank you guys for a good job. I'll recommend it to all my friends.
I admit to having a soft spot for the old Windows 3.1 etc. Sound Recorder, but trying to write my own C++ sound editing programs was tough, thanks to Microsoft's lack of documentation\comments in their source code. Well, I've got to say that after almost 20 years of programming\doing audio, that the AVS4YOU suite of audio\video titles are EXCELLENT (16 titltes for $59?!). Especially good is their flanger and EQ in their Audio Editor. The output was far faster and cleaner and ACCURATE than much more expensive titles from other companies that wanted to take over your computer and limit your choices.
Alex of AVS4YOU gives me the support I need in timely fashion to make this program worthwhile. This makes all the difference to me. Alex's support is excellent and enables me to solve any bugs I have. I have had this program for a while now, and have tried others, but this is the best. Way to go Alex.
Thank you for your help. I would like to apologize for being a bit tense in some emails. I have in the past found that some software sellers don't provide any kind of assistance when something goes wrong.
My friend is delighted, I am happy that I accomplished the task. Plus I feel confident now that the AVS4You service is right on the money.
So once again thank you for a software package that is excellent, and the backup service that is of the same quality.
Ich war mit den Programm von AVS4YOU sehr zufrieden.Ich hatte eine unbefristete Lizenz gekauft.Nun habe ich einen neuen Rechner und mein Lizenscode wird nicht mehr akzeptiert.Mehere Anfragen an verschiedene Adressen wurden nicht beantwortet.
Hilfe sieht anders aus
This program has been constantly crashing on me, and I can't get the company to refund me for it. I can't use it for making my video, as it crashes all the time, so a refund would help me to buy a different program. The company, however, will not reply, and it has been over a month, with a few Emails sent.
I was caught by the fairly large volume of utilities AVS puts on the counter for an apparently really fair price tag. However, whether did the video converter remotely compete e.g. with the freeware tool "Any Video converter" available from AnvSoft nor did the CD/DVD burning tool come anywhere close to the performance offered e.g. the freeware utility CDburnerXP.
I removed the entire suite of tools, yet still suspecting remnants to have remained on my system, as the system now goofs up on formatting and / or burning of re-writable CDs/DVDs.
I've tried many similar more expensive products mainly for file conversions of various types: audio, document etc. AVS is by far the best product line I've used. I would rank AVS products among the top 10 program groups along with Microsoft, Adobe and the like.
Hours of work lost over and over trying to get this unstable POS to work.It just stops when it wants to. There is no easy way to 'save' te work you have done, and it does not back up you work as you go like Audacity does. DO NOT BUY!
I purchased AVS4YOU ipod video software 10 months ago which was totally useless. I emailed technical support 11 times over this period and not ONCE did they respond.
Once they have got your money you are on your own, they just don't care.
I purchased an unlimited subscription on May 30, 2012. When I first started using it to edit/produce videos with my Windows 7 laptop, I thought it worked great. My laptop now has windows 8 installed and things are not going so well. I have downloaced and installed the latest version of AVS4YOU Video Editor. I am attempting to put together a video of our recent vacation and AVS4YOU Video Editor crashes continuously. All work done is lost at that point. The only way to save it is to do a little, save, shut down before it crashes again, and restart . I have worked with this situation for 3 days and am finally fed up. I am going to buy a video editing product that works with Windows 8 as this one clearly does not.
I had a 1 year subscription for one of the company´s products. I´t doesn´t live up to my expectations, so therefore I didn´t renew the subscription. Without any warning i suddenly recieved a email saying that Avs4you had withdrawn xxx € from my paypal account, without my acceptance. I complained to paypal, which covered my loss, but even now 3 months after that, I still receive emails from Avs4you claiming that there has been a mistake and they want xxx € from my company .... sigh
The avs video editor worked brilliantly after I had tried 4 or 5 different programmes including corel x6 what crashed all the time! I have edited 5 wedding videos now with avs and not one problem. It a bit like imove for pc but better and editing HD is easy and works well with output to blue ray
worth the money
I bought this program several years ago for a video project. I tried the free trial and got the water mark. I later updated to the full version. I had to have my computer reformatted and I was able to redownload the program onto the same computer. I later tried to update and was told I couldn't. I emailed support and - I admit it was at their own pace - they emailed me another key so I could update. I once again am downloading the programs onto my computer and hope there won't be any problems - I don't expect any. I mostly use the video editor.
Very disapointed that I could not take for a trial run. Don't want to buy before I try. It may not do what I need it to do and I am NOT doing that if it does not work get a refund sometime before I die. Nope.
Software good. Company support non-existent and fradulent policies.
When you buy this software you are buying a license to use for 1 year. Software expires itself after one year and you need to buy a new license. This is not at all clear from the web site and constitutes deliberate attempt to misinform and defraud. Almost any software you buy, you get to keep, the only thing that expires is the possibility to update. Not the case here.
I bought a license extension in the end because i needed the software, and oddly, paypal dispute upheld their case. So be warned.
On 2/4/2009 I purchased an unlimited subscription. Love the product. In the past 4 years I have gotten 3 or 4 computers. (ok..when I see a good deal on a computer that is better than the one I have I grab it) I have installed the software on all the computers. However, it is only on 1 computer that I'm using at a time. In other words when I get a new computer I reformat the hard drive on the old one and give it to someone in need of a computer. I have 1 computer with the software. When I tried to put my license code into the new one I got that I am in violation of the user agreement buy installing the software on multiple computers. Well I don't see it like that since I am only using it on 1 computer. I emailed them on the 19. NO REPLY. On the 20th I messaged them on face book and got
Sylvia, we answer support question within 48 hours as it is stated on our official site www.avs4you.com
. Could you specify your e-mail as we can help you.
I did specify my email addres and haven't got any reply.
Their software is good and I didn't mind paying for it. However, there customer service is the worst. If they had been nice about answering me I might have even paid 59.00 again. (I have used it for 3 plus years) BUT since they can't even be bothered to email me back......there is other software out there.
i paid for a lifetime licence thing years ago, never regretted it. I mostly used the video editor, its been EXTREMLY usfeul, the virus detection/firewall and the audio converter (awsome). i highly recommend this. Also, i dont know what you talk about no support, they replied kindly to all my requests as far as i know. For the price, you can't beat them.
I was needing software to convert my cassettes and vinyl to mp3's, I remembered that I had bought an unlimited subscription on their software bundle back in 2007 when I needed and bought the software for a few short projects. After the short 07 projects, I forgot about the software until yesterday when I was trying to convert the cassettes and vinyl to mp3. I found the downloads and installed the programs, was able to retrieve my activation keys and serial numbers. Could not upgrade to the latest upgrades but, within 24hrs and on a weekend, their email support responded to my email and sent me a new activation key code that allowed me to download and activate their latest and greatest software bundle that had more than double the original programs I purchased back in 2007. I'm still getting to know all of the software but, the audio recorder worked great for the cassette and vinyl to mp3 task.... !!!AWESOME SOFTWARE, COMPANY, AND SUPPORT THAT IS GREAT EVEN AFTER 5 YEARS.!!!
this was an awful experience after downloading their audio converter they sent me to this registration page which you had to pay to use the program i just downloaded and i was not told i had to pay for it previously.
Avs4you only uses / recognizes one company for the registration of the Software / License. That is AVANGATE.
I purchased an Unlimited Lifetime License from another Vendor called "regNow" Digital River and now I cannot register the software on the Avs4you site.
I keep getting my browser opening to the Register page of Avs4you site but cannot complete the registration as the only options given are to purchase (AGAIN) from AVANGATE to proceed with the Registration. No way to register the key that I purchased from "regNow" Digital River.
Support is 100% USELESS / NON-EXISTANT / UN-RESPONSIVE!
Now after about a week, I'm having all kinds of problems with some of the programs not working and there simply is NO TECHNICAL SUPPORT WHATSOEVER!
This has been a complete waste of my Time AND Money!
If you haven't installed any of this company's Software, "I" advise you DON'T!
If you haven't "PURCHASED" any of this company's Software, (Again) "I" advise you DON'T!
Now I have to get the Legal Dogs to hunt these people down and bite them in the ass!
I was searching for a simple yet practical editing program and found AVS4you software. I was excited because the had an editor that allowed you to edit HD. I was careful to make sure I knew the price before downloading it. And was surprised to see that once you paid for the editor you could also have about 18 items also. I have now owned this product for 2 years and have thoroughly enjoyed it. They have great costumer care and they really enjoy hearing my opinions. so I would give it this 5 star
I was looking for a one time software to convert a file somebody sent me, so I searched for a free download. Nowhere I was informed AVS4you had a purchase price.
After installation I ran accross the Watermark crap. Frustrated I found a free software that let me convert the file without problems.
Now I can't uninstall AVS4you and all the crap that came with it unless that I activate the installation, not even from Control Panel.
I recommend everyone to stay away from this company.
I've been using several of the AVS products and have found each of them to be excellent software and a great buy. My favorite is the AVS Video Editor. I've tried several video editing products including Pinnacle, Roxio, ArcSoft and a few others and they all fall short of the AVS Video Editor. All of the others crash and freeze when you least expect it - very frustrating. In 2 years I haven't had a single crash or freeze with the AVS Video Editor and it's simple and intuitive to use and produces great results.
The Audio products also work as described. In my opinion no other software products compare for the price with perhaps the free OpenOffice Suite.
Thanks for a great job in developing this family of Audio/Video products. I won't consider anything else.
I have been using AVS4YOU software for several years and I am pleased to report that it is an excellent piece of software. After trying many different software packages available, I have come to appreciate the reliability and ease of use of AVS4YOU software. I have several colleagues who also testify of the same.
I am truly amazed at some of the negative reports below, which I can confidently say are "user related issues". It is unfortunate that people become so aggro over their problem, instead of looking into it and seeking assistance for a solution from the Online Media Technologies Ltd, especially when it has been offered in such a positive way; (see Galina Goduhina's posting below).
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Online Media Technologies Ltd for the excellent product that they have produced, at such a reasonable price. Many thanks for your efforts to improve the program, with consistent updates which are made available from time to time.
Kind regards. - Howard
I wanted to try before buy - and that means see what the final product looks like. I spent about one hour editing a series of clips, but could not save it without a watermark banner. I thought a 30-day free trial meant just that. Don't waste your time.
This is the best of the best. I am becoming a techno geek and have experience many other AV software. AVS4You worked first time, no issues. Thank you! For those considering purchasing AVS4You, it is worth every penny (or pence) depending on where you are. Go for it! Learn it. Works well.
I've been through about 5 of the apps... I bought "unlimited access" for $59 and it certainly seems worth it. Here's why:
1. The applications are snappy and responsive, something I've really come to appreciate in this day of bloated, slow moving software.
2. The source code is available on SourceForge... this is a huge plus.
3. Each app is pretty "geeky"... and what a big plus this is, too. Not all computer users are idiots that must be coddled with cute pictures. If you're trying to accomplish the tasks to which these apps are targeted, you're probably not a beginner.
4. Support? Tell me what company sells you 15 applications for $59 and can afford to provide support? The documentation is sufficient for my needs... and by the way, have you tried to get support from, say, Microsoft?
The video converter is fast and accurate... the audio format converter is a whiz! Good job, avs developers.. thanks.
AVS software products have a timer that shuts the program down a year after purchase...unless you buy the lifetime package. I went with a one year trial for $39, founf the product to my liking, and went for the lifetime package for another $39. I received the activation key, but when I went to unlock the product, I received an immediate popup saying that I was not connected to the internet...rather hard to believe since I had ordered and paid for the product about 60 seconds prior.
I sent a message to the so-called '24-hour' AVS support asking what I should do, and I have heard nothing back. Another message to AVS has been sent, saying that if they can't get their 24-hour support service to answer in 96 hours, then I expect a full refund.
Online referencing shows that the well-hidden AVS domain is actually owned by...World Wide Digital Networks 9344-L Jones Rd, #117 Houston, TX 77065 888-434-5621
Great software in my opinion and they are always improving their programs. I bought the life time subscription but there is no one behind the curtain. I have had hard drive problems on two different occasions and if you reload there software then plug in the life time key code issued to you it will reject it as being installed on multiple computers. Email support and your email goes into the black hole of cyber space. No response no nothing from them on 2 different emails and I even gave them my phone number! But I will give them credit after I send email berate them I try again after a couple of days it majically works.. so if your hard drive crashes good luck on restoring their software.
I had been recording HD programs off my antenna for a few years now on my old windows XP machine and converting it from 1080p to 720p using mencoder (through various front ends like Avsoft's Any Video Converter). This arrangement has worked fine, until 6 months ago, my recordings are all corrupted somehow. My converter can only read the first 9 or 10 minutes. I have tried so many techniques to try to fix it including getting a new computer to no avail.
Then I found Avs4you, and it was the only program that was able to somehow fix my broken mpegs. I also like how it uses all of my available cpu cores to do the conversion unlike Any Video Converter which only uses 1 thread all the time. The output was very high quality and most importantly, I can now recover all of my broken mpegs! Halleluiah! I know there are more programs available for me to download, but the $39 I spent to get this program is well worth it. However, I am only giving 4 stars because I have never had to deal with their customer service so I don't know what that is like.
I bought AVS4you around January 2010 and it worked great up until the fall of 2010. It converted the TP files that my HDYV card in my computer recorded in, even though they didn't support TP files at that time. But I found that by just changing the name of the file from TP to MPG, it would convert them. Some time in the fall they came out with an update that did support TP files and I haven't been able to convert them since then. I can't even watch them in their Media Player. They just play a scene, stop for several seconds and jumps to another scene. I have worked with thier help people ever since then, sending thme files that I'm having the problem with and they aren't seeing it. I've tried everything they have suggested and nothing changes. I even installed a new HD and a new installation of XP on it and then downloaded AVS4you and it still does this play-pause-skip routine over and over. A one hour video will take 7 hours to convert and it has all the skips and stops in it.
I was really happy with the results, it gave me at first. It was the best looking conversion I have seen or did from TP to AVI and the software was easy to use. Their help people have tried, but they can't see the problem I'm having, so they are grasping at straws. I'm at the point of tossing in the towel on this. It's been going on for almost 5 months now and no headway has been made on it. I'm really sorry that I ever did the upgrade, because, even though I saved the files to my computer from my first download, when I re-installed it and tried to use it again, it was now doing what the update did. When I asked for my money back, they aksed me to send more files they could look at or try this or try that, I have and still nothing. We're just going in circles now. I wish we could have solved this, but I can't waste anymore time trying this and that. I use my computer for many other purposes that are important to get done and I can't waste any more time troubleshooting this problem for them They can keep the $50 or so that I spent for it.
I Just bought video editor, and does not support 16:9 output as advertised. they say yes, but only available outpout is 720x480 wich is 4:3. Converter don t support custom menu.
And support team dont answer to questions correctly.
I a very deceived on their products. I will ask for refund
Dont touch this product at all, it is fake
robert garand, programmer.
I expect a product to be mine once it is paid for. This program has a built in expiration date!! Buyer beware!!. The tech support does not exist. The program locks up and you will have problems on Win7. Buy lots of DVDs...you will need them when it fails and you have to reboot and try the burn again. Look elswhere for a product that is yours after you pay for it.
I was looking for a video converter to convert AVCHD files to AVI for video editing. Once I started playing with the software I appreciated how flexible it is converting between different formats, you can even tweak the default profiles and create your own for instance I needed to cram down a 2 hour movie to a 400MB mp4 file to play on a mobile phone as a demo, tweaking the bit rates was easy and the output quality was great.
I then started looking at the other programs you get to download too, I find the DVD copier particularly useful.
Only drawback as stated on other reviews is that license is for a single PC. So when you buy a new one you need a new license, I hope that won't be for some time. Still very good value for money considering the utilities you get.
I bought the unlimited license and installed it on my desktop about 8 months ago
i have every program thats came out and just in video editing over 100hrs of 1080i of conventions and weddings has more than payed for itself,
audio converter is great and fast many choices of formates,
slideshow maker rocks, used to take my about 3 hours before in windows movie maker, but with avs it does all the work in about 30 mins
have not had any problems 8)
would be better if it suppored burning multible dvds at once
they won't be open long if they keep there price's so LOW!!!!
their video editor alone is worth way more than the cost of the unlimited license
THANK YOU AVS4YOU

As to the problem you have with the error message abour "Lisence expired" it has nothing to do with the license agreement and terms of using our software on your PC as you have Unlimited license which means that you have a key which allows you

Unlimited license has to time limits that's why it can't get expired
