    Hey dude, can you post the serial number of mediavatar dvd converter here? Or you can send it to my e-mail at


  • gass

    yea its the 19th of dec. at 2:30ish am and the link for serial code worked and im regestered with the app thanks dottech and most of all thanks to mediAvatar Co. ,LTD.

  • Home User

    Thanks for the dotTech Promo. mediAvatar looks good, runs pretty quick and doesn’t do too bad of job. One of the things I don’t like about it is it doesn’t let you rip by sub-chapters. I tried this on a music video DVD. It lists the whole DVD as a chapter. Handbrake and some of the other DVD Rippers will break down the large chapter into sub-chapters (like 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, etc.) that way you can rip each music video separate. You are also limited on custom settings. I have tried several different DVD Ripper products and my favorite is still Handbrake, which is freeware. It gives you more options on what you want to rip, more custom settings, and good quality, Maybe not the fastest but seems really easy to me to use. I use it with DVD43 and it works on everything I have tried so far. I always look at software to see if I can find anything I like better but so far Handbrake works the best for my needs.
    Thanks for your time Ashraf. Much appreciated!

  • Daniel

    Can I get the key now and save in a txt file and install the software later?

  • Ashraf

    @Patrick: Weird. Are you sure the program is downloading fully? Maybe try downloading it with a different browser.

  • Hello,

    I just tried twice to install and run this program but I got a runtime error on each trial. Obtaining the registration code was easy. The error report showed a rather large hexdump with no natural language hints as to what went wrong.
    Perhaps I should temporarily disable my antivirus soft, but I doubt that the problem lies there.
    I chose for the full installation. Perhaps that’s where I went wrong?
    My OS is Win XP SP2 – which normally runs without any problems.


  • Ashraf

    @Lew: Where did you save the files? Sometimes what happens is if you try to save the files in a folder you don’t have write capabilities, mediAvatar DVD Converter thinks it converts the DVD but actually the file is never created. Can you try converting it again but this time placing it in a folder you are 100% sure you have write permissions to?

  • Lew

    The program downloaded and installed with no problems. When I converted from DVD to ipod, the software was busy for 35 minutes and when it was finished the destination folder was empty. I did a search on the entire computer and never did find out where, if anywhere, the converted files were saved.
    Oh, well.

  • easterbaker

    Thanks everyone, your comments helped.
    Does anyone know if they will be releasing a reg code for the Mac version? All I have are Macs.

  • Poorman

    I looked at clipboard and found in Firefox it had copied to clipboard 2x with

    Get DVD Converter for FREE
    added just backspaced to only 1 code and viola it registered fine.

  • Elric

    Well I downloaded this and have given it a try and it seems to work quite well. While I already had a good program like this This is definately a keeper. Also I had no [problem with inputting the code. And did make a copy of both thcode as well as a hard copy and a screenprint so that i don’t lose it in case I have to get another computer sometime.

  • canairda

    @justnakenny: ha

    justnakenny. I had the same problem but I was able to activate. do the following:
    -Restart computer
    -use the link to get to mediAvatar Converter
    -Click to copy code
    -Once see code, copy and paste to activate.

  • Jackie

    It looks good, but the MPEG-2 video setting doesn’t have 720×480 output setting. How come? I like that setting. It only goes to 640×480. I think the 720×480 should be there to.

  • Ashraf

    @justnakenny: I am sorry, I honestly don’t why you are having trouble. I know you have tried a lot, but I may be able to help you better if you can take a screenshot of your registration screen (so I can see if the problem is with the username/registration code) and e-mail it to me at admin [at] dottech [dot] org.

  • justnakenny

    Well that was a waste of time but I had to try it anyway.

    I’ve tried it with the dashes in-between the numbers and the letters and I’ve tried it without them and it’s still telling me that it’s wrong.

    I give up.

    Thanks anyway Ashraf, keep up the good work.


  • justnakenny

    Hi Ashraf,

    I can get the code but it tells me that it’s one of 4 reasons that it faoled.

    One being entered wrong. So, I not only copied and pasted it, I also entered it myself.

    Wtong OS and I’m on WinXP

    I can’t remember the other two, but I did go back and reread it and it told me to enter it without the blanks, which it did, just like it’s copied to the clipbd.

    I’m gonna try it with IE because I remember something else failing for me, with Opera and Firefox before.

  • rueaskew

    @justnakenny: I had the same problem when I tried it w/Firefox. I tried it using IE and had no problems.

  • Lindsay

    Likewise, copy to clipboard button did not work in Firefox, even after disconnecting NoScript.

    Finally was able to highlight registration code and copy/paste manually.

    Thanks Ashraf and MediaAvatar.

  • Jon

    So I got the program & the reg code however I don’t wish to install it at this time. Does anyone know if the reg code will still work a few weeks from now? Or for those that install it today & reformat their computers a few months from now will the code still work then?

  • Ashraf

    @Dane: No this is for Windows only.

    @justnakenny: You mention Opera in your comment. Are you having trouble getting the registration code or are you having trouble using the registration code to register the program? Are you 100% sure you entering the code properly? Try copy and pasting.

  • justnakenny

    Well here I am the problem child again.

    It won’t let me register it, because the license code is invalid. Help. OPERA

  • justnakenny

    Well here I am the problem child again.

    It won’t let me register it, because the license code is invalid. Help.

  • cuggie

    Greetings, Thank You “Muchly” for telling me to use IE. I was going nuts trying to get on the right site. Got it now and installed and regestired . Getting ready to give it a test run, will report back.
    Thanks dotTech for a nice present.

  • yahoo

    Can you rip dvds from netflix? Are they some how protected in way that you can’t rip those?


  • Dane

    Is it possible to get a reg code for the Mac version?

  • Jimmy

    I see another Jimmy on the site lol.
    I got mediAvatar HD Video Converter from GOTD, do not know if it is the same one.
    I have downloaded it. Thank you Ashraf for the Promo…
    PS – Those of you using NoScript with Firefox just allow the page temporary, then all will work fine.

  • smaragdus

    Thanks for the good gift.

  • Jalingo

    Thanks Ashraf. Firefox copied the reg code twice but when I used IE as Jimmy did everything was fine.

  • Jimmy


    Thanks! Had to view the page in IE, one of my Firefox add-ons was blocking/hiding it. Glad for that 99% of the time.

  • gfs

    Thanks Ashraf. Very much appreciated.
    I will have to wait a few days before I get the chance to really use it, but reading some of the responses here, it sure looks good so far.

  • Jabtano

    Up-date I haven’t found any issues with this program at all. what I like it keeps surprising me with features and things that can be done with it.

    @Jimmy the link is on Ashraf wright up where it says Promotion in blue text

  • Jimmy

    Where is the link to get the free code?

  • Helmer

    Agree with the first verdict, one rip to Android compatible mp4, no problems whatsoever. Fast, easy, yet feature rich. The program is looking pretty good and i am sure i will use it more.

  • Jabtano

    I just downloaded and used it . It’s pretty fast and straight forward .and rich with features. I haven’t seen any issues on the one rip that I did this morning. I’m going to try doing a few other things a little later on when I have the time. but so far so good on the program.

  • Thanks Ashraf.

  • Ashraf

    I would like to remind all dotTechies that as per dotTech’s Conflict of Interest Policy, I won’t be providing advice related to mediAvatar DVD Converter (such as “how good is it”, “is it worth the download”, “how does it compare to X program”, etc.) while this promotion is live.

    Any and all advice/reviews/suggestions on mediAvatar should be done dotTechie-to-dotTechie; if you grab this software or have experience with it, please post here and let others know what you think!
