I was going to turn a friend on to VideoWrap, today, but could not find it on the site. Has it been retired?

It is still available as part of the VisionLab Bundle, but it is no longer available on its own at this time.

What he said. Try googling "Video Convertor," or buy the Vision Lab bundle.

If I were a richer man I'd buckle down to buy the bundle, just for VideoWrap. Honestly, for what I paid for it ($29), I've gotten 50x my money's worth.

After 5+ years of using this and that video converter (AVC, VirtualDub, WinAVI, SUPER, QTPro, etc) I just can't find anything that beats the speed, efficiency, simplicity and damn-that-looks-good-ness of VideoWrap.

If you can't get VideoWrap have a look at Sorenson Squeeze which is a great compression product.

The upside is that you get fantastic results and it has many presets that you can further customise.

The downside is that is costs more than the VisionLab bundle, so you may as well purchase that instead. wink

Just in support of Sketchwork, Sorenson Squeeze is a bit of an industry standard, and is a great alternative (at a price). I prefer it to SUPER as it always works on files it supports, so not straight from flv in my version, although later versions may support that.

Easy job-based interface, so you can set up the next transcode whilst it's working on the previous one, it has watch folders (where it can always trnascode to your spec anything that gets dropped into a foldwer - great for producing multiple versions of multiple files - as you finish an edit and drop the files into your watch folder, it will take it from there), you can get licenses for the web-standard VP6F codec as a plugin, allowing you to encode with the same quality as BBC iPlayer etc, at a reduced bitrate. Great little tool, Sorenson Squeeze, recommended.

Thanks Ben! Glad to hear VideoWrap did its job well for you.

The reason we're no longer selling it individually is that some of the templates are a little out of date (the YouTube ones for example). It's still handy as a freebie in the VisionLab bundle, though! smile

Does that mean we can look forward to an upgrade or new version sometime in the future?

I would love to see an update of VideoWrap for YouTube's new 1080p upload option.

I just have the free lite gift version of this program but I would certainly pay for the perfect YouTube HD program. This is an issue that all YouTubers fight to find the ultimate answer to and there is nothing on the market that does it perfectly.

I would love to finally render my video, put it through a program like VideoWrap and then upload it with the proper settings that will look best on YouTube.

Happy Holidays!
