In today’s world, having the ability to be able to convert media files into other formats is very important. Here on dotTech we have an article on best free video and audio converter for Windows , to help you find the perfect audio/video for your needs without having to pay anything. Not happy with what we suggested? Then Aiseesoft Total Video Converter is another options. Let’s see if it is worth your time.
Aiseesoft Total Video Converter is a Windows program that will help you convert videos and audio files.
Take note that Aiseesoft Total Video Converter has two versions, Platinum and Standard. The following are the differences between Platinum and Standard, as per the developer:
There are a ton of different video and audio converters out there. Aiseesoft Total Media Converter may look like all the others, but that doesn’t stop it from being a great program. Now we just have to find out if it is worth the price tag.
First, let me start of by saying that there are two versions of Total Media Converter. There is the Standard edition and the Platinum edition. Today, we are going to be covering the Platinum version, but if you want to try Standard (because it is cheaper), you should know the following can only be found in the Platinum version:
Aside from that, both Standard and Platinum have all the same features. In other words, the most notable difference between Standard and Platinum is the ability to make 3D videos.
So what can Total Media Converter do? Well, basically it is your all-in-one audio and video converter. To name the most important functionality, it can convert video -> video, audio -> audio, video -> audio, modify video properties such as brightness, crop and trim videos, join video files together, add watermarks, and adjust numerous parameters. All of the changes you make to a video can be seen in real time thanks to the instant preview window they offer on the right side of the program. Then when you are ready to convert, you simply convert.
As you already know, many input and output formats are supported plus there is support for specific electronic devices. Although the program doesn’t support iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c yet (because, at the time of this writing, the two devices have been announced but not released), it does have one of the best support for electronic devices I’ve seen. Not perfect — there are still some missing devices — but still excellent.
That being said, is Aiseesoft Total Video Converter worth spending money for? Meh, not really. The program itself is excellent, no doubt. However, aside from the 2D -> 3D conversion feature, Aiseesoft Total Video Converter offers nothing you cannot find in freeware video/audio converters. True, Aiseesoft Total Video Converter provides a great interface and is a bit easier to use than some freeware video converters, but in terms of functionality it doesn’t offer anything to warrant you to give Aiseesoft your hard earned money. At least, not in my opinion.
In and of itself, Aiseesoft Total Video Converter is a good program. However, is it worth the price tag? Not really. Assuming you don’t care about the 2D -> 3D conversion feature, you can grab Standard for $34. This $34 will fetch you a video converter and audio converter. If you want 2D -> 3D conversion features, you can grab Platinum for $39. On the flip side, for $0 you can grab excellent freeware video converters like Video to Video Converter  that have all the features offered by Aiseesoft Total Video Converter without the price tag (and no 2D -> 3D conversion).
You see, video and audio converting is no longer an art — it is a science. Maybe in 2010 Aiseesoft Total Video Converter’s video/audio conversion capabilities would have been impressive. Today there are tons of freeware that do excellent video/audio conversions  — there is absolutely no need to purchase a shareware program for the ability to convert your video/audio files. Freeware video/audio converters can all do excellent video/audio conversions and support tons of input/output formats — just like Aiseesoft Total Video Converter.
Overall, Aiseesoft Total Video Converter is a good program… but it isn’t worth the price tag. Our recommendation is to skip out on this one and grab one of the many excellent free video converters mentioned in our review on best free video and audio converters for Windows .
