    I just tried the conversions part and it was taking an age to load the relevant data. Oh well - it is a beta site so may be worth revisiting later.

    It enables you to edit and convert videos among almost all video and audio formats, as well as the animated GIFs.

    I prefer the program as its after-sale service is good. So I think when choosing an appropriate program for ourselves, we should consider not only its quality, functions, but also its after-sale service.
    I'm getting bored of this - can we stop the spamming about this product?
