    DVD catalyst - retail version


    Hi there
    Any views on this -- I want to convert some DVD movies to play on the SAMSUNG S4 Phone (and then play back via a USB-> HDMI output on a Hotel TV).

    The DVD is already ripped to an ISO - decrypted and de-regionalized so the output should be "rippable" in decent MP4 format which the phone can output at full HD (1080p) --used AnyDVD to decrypt and de-regionalize the DVD - that works fine. S4 phone likes MP4 format better than a lot of other codecs and VLC for android plays OK.

    This program seems to do the trick without zillions of add / crapware a lot of the other "Free" video converters have.

    Sample files play OK - got a micro 64GB card for the phone so can get a few movies on it. It's just a bit slow though even on a decent computer - any other recommendations -- I want QUALITY though so that's more important than pure speed - but if I can have BOTH. !!

    Cheers

    Hi there
    That's fine - better than the other one which points to web pages every so often wanting me to "Go PRO" -- i.e PAY !!!!

    I HATE these sneakerware types of things which you think are FREE and then the bits you really want are PAY !!!!

    Your program works fine and is reasonably good too -- just converted FAST AND FURIOUS 4 to decent quality in 40 mins.

    Phone plays back fine with decent audio too.

    (Phones these days are much TOO useful for other things --who needs them to make "Bog standard" phone calls on them, any more !!!!!).

    Cheers

I purchased a full retail version of Windows 8.1 that comes on 32-bit and 64-bit DVD's. Will the retail version still ask for the Windows 8.1 product key when installing from the Windows 8 desktop? Does the retail version check for the BIOS embedded product key before asking for the product key?
