    A far superior product

    The software is working perfectly!Simple and very straight forward in what you want to do. For that I thank the development team. I have a few movies I have downloaded in MKV format. My file output is VOB. I learned this is what DVD players use. I watch a movie, save it and if my friends or family want it I convert and burn it for them.
    In my search to find a simple to understand, use and enjoy I found Pavtube. I had to download and try about 15 different programs. From Super to Xilisoft. Most of them were too difficult for the average person. I prefer the program I use just works. Simple settings, no need to play around with 75 different settings to get what I want. I did try your free trial first. I had to decide which one best worked. I will be deleting them all and cleaning up my desktop now that have found what works. After I used your free trial and realized, it just works. Even with the water mark I knew this was the product for me. I purchased right away.
    The simplicity is perfect. Pick file, pick output and press go. The nicest thing about Pavtube. I did not once have to go the the FAQ section. It is that easy to understand. Thank you for a far superior product. Aug 4, 2010


    So satisfied with Pavtube

    I cannot express how happy I am about purchasing Pavtube. It has been one of the best purchases I have ever made. It enables me to convert 1080p videos in a way no other software can. The edit feature is one of the most valuable functions of the software. It enables me to just take the clips that I want, without having to convert the entire file. Not only does it make the conversion process more simple, but the converted files are big and crisp. I will definitely recommend this product to other filmmakers and editors. I am so satisfied with Pavtube! Jan. 26, 2010


    Very high quality and no synch problems

    I had a video that I could not convert no matter what I did to it, so I thought this will try Pavtube out. Away we went and very quickly I must say, and the result, well it was very high quality and no synch problems. I really was impressed and I wish I could afford other software in your range because if they worked as well as the MKV Converter I would not need half the rubbish I have purchased in the past.

    Works great and satisfy your needs

    I have downloaded the updated version per the instructions. All seems to be working fine now. I found your software through a search engine (MSN) and compared it to 3 others with the trial versions prior to selecting Pavetube to buy. Overall, I am satisfied with the product. March 12, 2009

    Q: How to update Pavtube Software?

    A: Please click here to see the detailed steps.

    Q: I have ever purchased your Windows software and now I changed my PC to Mac.
    Can I install this software onto my Mac? Or can you send me a Mac version?

    A: All of our softwares are platform-independent ones but not cross-platform. So a Windows software cannot be installed onto a Mac computer and vice versa.
    If you need a Mac version, please kindly contact with Pavtube support team at
    Or if you need a Windows version, please kindly contact with Pavtube support team at
    Discount will be available for a second purchase.

    Q:I ever ripped and converted many movies with Pavtube using the Apple TV output formats. Those movies played like a charm before on my Apple TV2, iPad, iPhone and even iPod Touch. However, after I updated my Apple devices to iOS 4.3 the sound cannot be played anymore. There's only video without sound. I find all my movies are encoded with aac 6 channels (5.1 channels) that do not work. If I changed the audio to stereo (2 channels) my Apple TV2 works again. I am afraid the sound problem is caused by iOS 4.3, but would like to hear your opinions how to settle it.

    A: Apple's iOS 4.3 seems to have changed its audio processing function or there might be a bug in iOS 4.3. There are many people feeding back the iOS 4.3 sound problem in Apple discussions forum. See below:
    We are not sure whether or when Apple will settle the iOS 4.3 6 channels sound playback problem. Presently to settle the sound problem with Pavtube you can click the Settings button and choose audio Channels to stereo (2 channels) instead of 6 channels (5.1 channels). We are also updating our Pavtube software to make adjustments to the Apple TV output profiles to settle the sound problem. Please keep tracking the update information from our website. Once the update gets released users can download the latest version from the download link they first downloaded Pavtube after purchase.

    Q: What are the differences between the trial version and the retail version?

    A: A trail version converts videos with watermark (the logo of Pavtube) on the screen and asks if you would like to purchase at each run while a retail version allows you to use freely without putting on watermark. As a customer of Pavtube, you will be reminded to update the software whenever a new version is released. The update is free of charge for lifetime. Besides, your emails will be attended at the first time, your advice and requirements will be much valued when we upgrade the software.

    Q: How to combine multiple video clips into one file?

    A: Select the items you want to combine together and check the box of ‘Merge into one file’ before converting the videos.

    Q: My widescreen movies (16x9) aren't staying widescreen after conversion. I don't want the video to be stretched and made taller. What can I do?

    A: Simply click ‘Settings’ button and set the Video Size to 16*9 aspect ratio before converting the movie.

    Q: How can I set the output file name?

    A: Please find the column named ‘Destination File’ on file list. Double click the output name and then you can type in desired output file name.

    Q: My videos were recorded by my HD camcorder, there are many stripes and noises on the picture after conversion, why should this happen?

    A: Some footages are taken under interlacing mode, and this lead to stripes and lines on the screen. To eliminate the lines, you may follow ‘Edit’ menu-> ‘Effect’ tab and check ‘Deinterlacing’ box before conversion. As to the noise, when you apply the special effect mode “Simple Gauss Blur” from the drop-down list, the noise will be reduced greatly.

    Q: I’d like to eliminate black bars (edges) from the movie, what should I do?

    A: Click ‘Edit’ button to enter into the edit panel and switch to the Crop tab, then just drag the dashed frame on the video screen of the original preview window to cut off the unwanted parts to get the right aspect ratio you need.

    Q: How do I install and register the software?

    A: Please find more details at Install and register Windows products.

    Q: I am unable to download the program properly. What can I do?

    A: Please check whether your computer has been infected. Then check your IE settings. Please click "Internet option..." under "Tools", and then select the "General" Page, just click "Delete file...", and it will be OK.

    Q: Can I change the output file name?

    A: Yes. Please find the column named "Destination File" on file list. Click the particular output name under the "Destination File" column, and then you can specify the output file name.
