Free Videomizer! [Limited time offer]

Software Description

The following is a description of Videomizer, as per the developer:

Videomizer Highlights

  • Automatic object recognition: manipulates only those frame parts, which help optimize the overall impression!
  • Fully automatic re-adjustment of tonality, re-sharpening and contrast optimization!
  • Touching-up of images through higher definition and re-sharpening of matt colours!
  • Fully automatic system for hue control and saturation, white balance and bright/dark correction.
  • Elimination of fog and other weather influences and undesired colour casts.
  • Adjustment options for resolution, bit rate and frame rate as well as audio attributes (channels, bit rate, sample rate)
  • Picture size optimization to eliminate black bars, among others Stretch and Pan & Scan
  • High-quality scaling filters, among them Lanczos and the extremely efficient ODU
  • Video cut and real time preview (dual view for direct comparison)
  • Supported input formats: DVD-Video, AVI, WMV, MP4, 3GP, MPG, TS and more
  • Supported output formats: AVI, MPG, MP4 and WMV, among others with profiles for iPod, iPad, Android, PlayStation Portable and other devices.
  • Fully automatic batch mode for automated manipulation of several videos in a row!
  • Additional option for manual optimization!
  • The HDR-simulator helps to create amazingly HDR-similar modifications. HDR is known from photography and serves for creating high dynamic range images. You require, however, three images of the same subject with three different exposures. The VideoMizer creates a similar effect for your videos although it has to do with just one image per unit of time.
  • The scaling optimization, another distinctive feature of the program, guarantees that your videos are most efficiently shown on a certain display. If for example you have a portable media player like the Apple iPod, your videos are automatically adjusted to its display attributes for full screen mode – without disturbing black bars!

dotTech Advice

Videomizer is a software intended to “optimize” home videos, giving them a more “professional” look. Although it is intended for videos, it also does photos; and it has a built-in video format converter, too. Seeing as I don’t have any home videos/movies… I can’t really evaluate the software and provide any useful advice. (Sorry!) I ask that dotTechies that do test this software out share with the rest of us their experience in the comments below.

    Ashraf, from a few years ago when you provided clear direction and knowledge at GOTD, to the many times I’ve come here to unconfuse myself, you have persistently insisted on proving yourself to be a first-class human being. Thank you SO much. Really first class.

    @Jeanjean: You are welcome!

    @harrrrrrr: :-) good suggestion seeing as there probably won’t be free updates.

    @Coltel Jean-Pierre: Hmmm, that is interesting. Then I don’t know whats wrong for Frank. Sorry Frank! And thanks Coltel.

    @Louis: Hmmm… was your download corrupt?

    @Sin-Chu: You are welcome!

    @hatman: You are welcome!

    @yangzl and @cb277: You guys are probably having issues because I think this promotion is over now. Sorry!

    No problems installing with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. The program is very fast with many options available. Tried a one minute travel video (MP4) I made (40 megs) converted & optimized to AVI Divx. I tried the colour saturation and a few other variations. After converting it was only 5megs. Yes it had a little pixilation but to me very useful if you are sharing or e mailing files.

    Try it I am sure many will like it. Thanks for the heads up.

    Running Win 7 Home 64 bit

    Downloaded and attempted to install the software :

    Got the following error message :

    free-videomizer.exe is not a valid Win32 application

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks for a great website, Ashraf.

    Best regards

    @Ashraf : about Frank D, I’m with 7 Home Edition 64-bit + SP-1. The problem is not here, try an other way.
    For my case, I’ve followed step by step your explanations and every thing was right, also the screen shots.
    If it can help somebody…

    The optimatisation (real) has a price : 3’38 video weighing initially 13 Mb becomes easily more than 54 Mb (in automatic mode)! … You decide if it’s worth.
    I could not play the mp4 created in this way with WMP, but well with Media Player Classic.

    Thanks, Ashraf, however after downloading again and starting the program (which seems to work fine) and then trying to register, I get the following error message:
    VideoMizer.exe – No debugger found.
    Registered JIT debugger is not available. An attempt to launch a JIT debugger with the following command resulted in an error code of 0x2 (2). Please check computer settings.
    “C:Program FilesSolutoDebuggerx86ntsd.exe” -p 4596 -d -noio -c “.dump /mFhut /u /o C:ProgramDataSolutoDumpsApplicationDumpsJIT.dmp; .kill; q”
    Click on Retry to have the process wait while attaching a debugger manually.
    Click on Cancel to abort the JIT debug request.
    Retry Cancel
    I tried both Retry and Cancel. Both result in the program failing and disappearing from the screen. Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, SP-1.

    I also tried it in Safe Mode with identical results. By the way, I don’t have Soluto on my machine, so I don’t know what it’s referring to.

    Pour les utilisateurs de langue française : ce programme s’installe et fonctionne en français. Traduction de très bonne qualité au passage.

    Thanks Ashraf for this program whitch is also in French. Very good and right explanations for installation.

    Maybe no chance? try again.
