dotTech Promo: Free iSkysoft iMedia Converter! [Limited time offer]

Two weeks ago dotTech and iSkysoft Studios ran a promotion of iSkysoft Video Converter. Now we are back; but this time we bring you iSkysoft Studios’ flagship product iSkysoft iMedia Converter!

Despite what the name may imply, iSkysoft iMedia Converter is not a program aimed at Apple products. Rather, iSkysoft iMedia Converter is an all-in-one video converter, audio converter, and DVD ripper. (Yes, iSkysoft iMedia Converter can bypass DRM protection.) Of course iSkysoft iMedia Converter comes with those much loved basic editing capabilities, too.

The following is the official list of features for iSkysoft iMedia Converter (created by the developer) followed by a chart listing all the supported input formats, output formats, and electronic devices (also created by the developer):

While dotTech has never formally reviewed iSkysoft iMedia Converter, based on my past experiences with iSkysoft Studios/Wondershare Software video & audio converting and DVD ripping products, and the overwhelmingly positive comments made by dotTechies in the last promotion, I will say this: One would have to be a bloody fool to miss out on grabbing iSkysoft iMedia Converter while it is available for free. Pardon my French.

Before I spill the beans on the freebie, I would like to inform everyone of the second part of this promotion. As part of this promotion, anyone that wants a product with more features than iSkysoft iMedia Converter can purchase iSkysoft Video Converter Ultimate for a discounted price of $30 (regular price is $55). Although the software titles may imply otherwise, iSkysoft Video Converter Ultimate actually has more features than iSkysoft iMedia Converter. iSkysoft Video Converter Ultimate is the combination of various different iSkysoft Studios products; it can do everything iSkysoft iMedia Converter can do and more, such as burn DVDs and download streaming videos. iSkysoft Video Converter Ultimate can be purchased from the giveaway page at the $30 discounted price.

That said, to get iSkysoft iMedia Converter for free, follow these simple directions:

    Hi Ashraf,

    Just wish to thank you for making this awareness about freebies and reviews of different software. ThankYou.


  • Reality Check


    If they are alike, why doesn’t Wondershare stick to one name because there’s no logical reason to install things from diffrerent brands if these things are actually all the same. HD space is precious enough on laptops as it is. Laptops are so stingy with HD space, this is Vista and has only 120 GIG on it and it’s constantly a problem trying to make enough space on the HD to have on it what I want on it and try to keep at least 1 Gig of space free for things to be able to run without crashing because of lack of space for their paging files, etc. And of course Windows Updates always want to consume more and more of HDD space all the time too.

  • Reality Check

    AARGH, yet another developer who requires you to let them take your email address hostage in exchange for giving you a copy of their software! I HATE it when these developers demand your email because I get so sick of having my email being so flooded with advertising that it becomes a major undertaking just to wade through it all and attempt to ferret out the few emails that are worthy of actually reading
    Some of these developers clearly DO sell their email lists, judging by the increase in spam advertising emails after submitting my email address as part of giveaway conditions.
    Not only that, I’ve also had a number of giveaways later revert back to trials withint a few weeks or months and start constantly running their nagware .

  • Ted

    In comparison to several other media converters, iSkysoft iMedia Converter is EXCELLENT! One of the many things about it that impressed me, is that I needed to extract audio from an mp4 video file, to an mp3–only iSkysoft was able to do so without audio distortion.

  • Emrys

    Thanks again. I was looking for a good converter that would work with this Palm Pixi I’m stuck with for now. Be well.

  • Dima

    would somebody answer why i can’t convert to avi

    something missing

    thank you

  • Suze

    Many thanks, Ashraf!!

    A word of warning: iMedia Converter is set to automatically check for updates on a weekly basis. I would suggest changing this default by clicking on Tools > Preferences, and in the ‘Auto update’ box at the bottom, changing the option to “Never” . . .

  • Ashraf

    @JCR1960: It is fabulous. :-)

  • JCR1960


    Convert to .vob ( or DVD in some softwares) Downloaded this, seems fabulous, but haven’t even had time to open it…

  • Ashraf

    @SRT: Aimersoft is another company that is owned by Wondershare. Looking at the features of Aimersoft Video Converter Pro, it seems to be the exact same program as iSkysoft iMedia Converter. However, as Jinlei said, you may want to give iSkysoft iMedia Converter a try to see if they perform the same (which they most likely will, since they are both Wondershare Software products).

  • @SRT: Hi, I could not tell you the exact difference and I also don’t want to comment another software, but you may install two converters and see which one works better for you :)

  • @vyverjet: Hi, you may take a look at the video converter ultimate which contains the features of copying video to DVD: Hope it helps.

    iSkysoft Studio

  • @Michael: Hi Michael, it is Jinlei from iSkysoft. Thanks a lot for your suggestions on our software. I have already forwarded them to R&D and let them consider it. Please feel free to let us know if you have found anything that could help us make a better software. Thanks.

  • SRT

    Hi guys,
    Whats the difference between this freebie and Aimersoft Video Converter Pro ?

  • grage

    Add DVD copy profile instead of always converting it because many times user doesn’t need to change resolution etc.

  • Ashraf

    @Jimmy: Welcome!

    @Casey: You are welcome!

    @Michael: You are welcome… and thanks for the feedback!

    @Harry: You are welcome!

    @vyverjet: Yeah this isn’t the right place to ask =P The forums would be better. That said, like rodken mentioned Nero should be able to do what you are asking. However, if you still can’t get it to work, give a try DVD Flick. It is also worth mentioning iSkysoft Video Converter Ultimate can burn DVDs, although I am not sure if it can author them.

  • rodken

    @vyverjet: Nero should be able to convert your VCDs to DVD on it’s own and I’m sure with better quality (re-encoding over and over is only going to degrade your videos).
    As for iSkysoft iMedia Converter, well this seems like a good converter considering its ability to convert DRM protected videos. But really that is all it has going for it, there are way too many freeware and cheap shareware that can do this and maybe more. Also there are way too many versions of converters from the same companies. A converter which only converts and doesn’t burn is really simplistic nowadays, and seems as if they are just being created for the sake of having different versions. It’s just a way too crowded market with tons of soft that do the exact same thing.
    Nice offer though, but I already have more than I need. Merry Christmas!

  • vyverjet

    Dear Ashraf,
    I have a few “really old” video movie CDs which i converted to .avi format,but Nero refused to burn ! Can you kindly suggest the format into which these video movies should be converted to, so that my aged parents can view their olden Goldies on a plasma TV (Panasonic btw)? Thanks for all the top-notch software you have arranged for us to download!

    Thanking you and with regards,

    PS: Excuse me if this not the right place to post! Hey,i am a member of

  • Rob.C

    @Harry: some reading material for you to check out

  • Harry

    Thanks Ashraf, you da man!

    I’m surprised no one mentioned the Aiseesoft Total Video Converter, which was recently given away. I just got done comparing the two and I think I like the Aiseesoft a little better. The output was a little better and defaulted to the file sizes I liked, but probably doesn’t have the DRM thing.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

  • Michael

    thanks for the promo and thanks also for the last promo on the video converter. i find them both great products and yes they are to me the exact same as the wondershare softwares which i also have from

    just one feedback for iskysoft, it would be nice if these converter could also have the extra feature of seamlessly merge/trim similar video file formats without the option of re-encoding. this would significantly cut down the time need to wait for a video to be re-encoded or converted. sometimes, i just want to preserve the original video formats to not lose resolution and wish to just trim/merge them instantly without needing to leave my laptop on for hours just to merge and convert a 5 hour video clips. it would be a neat option if this was included in this software.

    just my 2 cents opinion. merry christmas to ashraf and iskysoft!!!

  • Casey

    Thanks Ashraf for another great giveaway!

  • Jimmy

    Good Evening Ashraf, Thank you for the promo info and iSkysoft for the giveaway

  • Ashraf

    @michael: No. Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate is the same/similar product as iSkysoft Video Converter Ultimate, which has more features than iSkysoft iMedia Converter.

    (Keep in mind Wondershare Software owns iSkysoft Studios, so products that look similar between the two companies are probably similar.)

  • michael

    will this be better than Wondershare video converter ultimate, which I now have…? thanks.

  • Ashraf

    @Rob.C: You are welcome!

    @Aaron: Yeah.

    @mukhi: Yeah most freewares dont pass DRM protection.

    @Brent: Nah has nothing to do with Christmas; but I am glad you like it! You are welcome!


  • Brent

    I have been looking for just such an application. Thanks Ash and to the guys at iSkysoft.

    Early xmas pressie me thinks…..

  • mukhi

    iSkysoft iMedia Converter can bypass DRM protection.
    this is one feature where many famous free media converters like format factory or iwisoft video converter lack at.
    free DVD43 can help you bypass DRM protection but then you need an additional program to do it, and DVD43 does not support 64 bit.

    gotta check it out!!!

  • Aaron

    OK, it seems pretty obvious, but just wanted to make 100% sure that the imedia converter has every feature that the Video Converter (the one that was given away) has (in addition to all the other stuff), so we should just remove the VC and replace it with this?

  • Good morning Ashraf. I find my self coming here before Giveawayoftheday, here is more interesting.
    just installed (perfectly) entered key code and email. you have to use your own due to the fact that the code is sent by email. no problems at all. but of course ,it’s iskysoft. As you said in your type up “One would have to be a bloody fool to miss out on grabbing iSkysoft iMedia Converter while it is available for free.” This is a very true statement.
    Thanks for the software and all the work you put into
    keep up the excellent work.
