I have been using it since then but prefers total video converter (TVC), until the launch of their most recent version than combines video conversion functionalities with exquisite media streaming capability.
In this short review, I’ll be sharing my experiences with Wondershare video converter ultimate app, its function, features and/or capabilities.
Wondershare Video converter ultimate is a little piece of utility app that lets you convert videos from one format to another without loosing quality (noticeably).

Our Review and Verdict
Video conversion is a thing I do from time to time, being a person that owns several devices including outdated Nokia s40 models. Wondershare video converter ultimate worked for my most-loved video conversion needs.
The record video function was below par when used for functions other than video recording. Trying to create a simple screen tutorial with it failed and the output for full page recording wasn’t impressive too.
Other features of the app is really top-notched and worked better than most popular tools around the cyber-space. We can recommend this tool as a better than total video converter (TVC) app.
In all, Wondershare Video converter ultimate is highly intuitive, user-friendly and works with basic system hardware requirements.
