Wondershare Video Converter Platinum was reviewed  on dotTech almost two years ago. The final verdict illustrates how I feel about the program:
Wondershare Video Converter Platinum is an excellent program; it supports many input and output formats, allows users to perform basic edits on input files, works quickly, and converts with terrific quality. I give Wondershare Video Converter Platinum a thumbs up! […]
[…]If you are looking for a shareware video converter, Wondershare Video Converter Platinum is one of the best; highly recommended.[…]
That said, many iterations of Wondershare Video Converter Platinum have been reviewed or featured on dotTech in the recent past such as Aimersoft Video Converter , iSkysoft Video Converter , and iSkysoft iMedia Converter . If you already have any of these iterations, don’t bother with Wondershare Video Converter Platinum; they are the same/similar programs because Wondershare Software owns those other companies. (iSkysoft iMedia Converter is actually even more fully featured.) If you don’t have any of these iterations, however, then don’t miss this chance to grab Wondershare Video Converter Platinum. It is a brilliant video converter.
However, in the interest of fairness and full disclosure, it needs to be mentioned Wondershare Software has the following ratings on its WOT profile :
It cannot be denied that forum/website spamming played a huge role in Wondershare Software’s rise to the top as a dominant software publisher. However, as far as I know, they are now trying to turn their image around and reigning in spam tactics. They are so huge now I am sure they realize the negative PR consequences of spam.
If you decide to not get Wondershare Video Converter Platinum because of Wondershare Software’s reputation, I don’t blame you. In fact, I respect you. Do note, though, while spam is definitely an ethical issue, it has no relevance to the performance of the program. If you decide to put the spam issue on the back burner and get this program, I don’t blame you either. After all, it is a brilliant converter; and Wondershare Software must be given credit for trying to turn its image around.
I am not sure how many dotTechies know this, but Giveaway of the Day is no longer the only website that features regular freebies. dotTech itself is looking to bring freebies  to dotTechies on a regular basis; and there is another website known as BrotherGiveaway. BrotherGiveaway has modeled itself after GOTD and looks to bring freebies to users on a regular basis. Although officially they claim to have a new freebie daily, they typically have new freebies every two to three days. Wondershare Video Converter Platinum is the freebie they are offering for the next three days.
In case you don’t want to start following another website, I will now be checking on BrotherGiveaway regularly and be posting the *good* freebies that are being offered there; so you don’t necessarily have to follow them to know about the freebies. Rather you can stay here at home and still enjoy them. :-)
(BTW I offered to review BrotherGiveaway products like I do GOTD products; but me and BrotherGiveaway could not come to terms as to how to do it. I wanted the dotTech-BrotherGiveaway relationship to be similar to the dotTech-GOTD relationship but they wanted something else.)
