It’s a new year, and with that comes all kinds of great new software releases and updates. SUPER Video converter is a favorite for many of our readers, and I wanted to make sure everyone knows that a new version was released with better media support and bug fixes. Here’s a more detailed list of what’s new:

  • Added support to encode, play and render WMV9 and WVC1 with the ASF, AVI, MKV, WMV and Zune containers
  • Added support to encode, play and render WMA3 with the ASF, AVI, MKV, WMV and Zune containers
  • Added Bframe support when using the WMV9/WVC1 video codecs
  • Added OGG (Audio Only) Output Container, rename the old OGG(Video, Audio) to OGM(Video, Audio)
  • Added support to encode, play and render vorbis (very high quality) with the OGG (Audio Only) container
  • Added support to encode, play and render FLAC (lossless) with the MKV, OGM, OGG containers
  • Added H.264 Profile/Level/Ref CheckBox to tweak 3GP/3G2, iPod, Zune, PSP, PS3, TS and M2TS containers
  • Fixed a long list of small bug fixes and coding enhancements

The new version still has the same interface, which for many computer users is a bit overwhelming:

Once you start actually using the program, however, it works great. And the fact that SUPER is free makes it pretty hard to beat. The one thing I wish they would fix is their unbelievably awful website that takes five minutes just to find the download link, and the download page changes frequently making it impossible to link directly to it. After a quick search on Google, however, I found this download mirror for you guys.

  1. Navigation of the site to download it is nearly as bad as configuring all of the options, but it’s also available on my freeware site [MissingBytes.net] as well. I uploaded it early this morning.

  2. I usually have a need to encode video in one particular format according to what I’m carrying in my pocket.

    My pocket contains an iPhone, so I gave this a try but gave it up in favour of iPodMe: [nodadev.wordpress.com]

    It’s small, free, fast, supports subtitles and portable. Just run the executable, drop a bunch of videos on it’s window and it’ll produce mp4 files in the same directory.

    Very nice! That’s so simple for iPod/iPhone users! Definitely a good find.

  4. I’m always surprised to hear people raving about this software and amazed that anyone has managed to get it to work. Every time I’ve seen it mentioned on CyberNet I’ve tried to give it another go and every time with the same result that I’ve never found a single file in any format that it will succesfully convert to any other format. The very few times its done anything and not fed me pointless errors the output has been so reduced in quality and syncing that I may as well have stiched JPEGs together in Movie Maker and recorded the sound through a desk mic.

    Am I doing something wrong or like most video programs does it require a million other codecs to be installed before it will do anything useful?

  5. I download it and installed. but it didn’t work and crashed.

  6. amazing freeware, is does not require any other external codec.
    whether for my iPhone or my standalone DVD player, it is by far the best available encoder.
    I am using Vista Ultimate 32bit.

    I’ve gotten plenty of videos to convert using the software, but I have experienced a few that wouldn’t work. If I recall this is really just a GUI to FFMPEG, which is normally pretty good about what it supports.

  8. what on earth are they thinking about re: their site navigation and hiding the download links? is SUPER a scam? why is it freeware but hidden? seems like a scam-kinda thing to do… :?:

    It’s always been that way. The best reason I can come up with is that they are trying to get people to click on their ads.

    They’re just busting balls.

  11. Thank you Bill ! :)

  12. Great freeware, works like a charm to encode any file format to my iPod.

  13. While I have had plenty of good results with this one, primarily for MP4 conversion, I find myself going with MediaCoder most of the time because it is nearly as powerful for what I need and a little easier to get around while still having the advanced options..

  14. Installed SUPER 2009 but it displays a compatability error and fails.
    I am running Windows XP SP3.

  15. I’ve Installed the latest SUPER v2009 build 36 on my Vista premium 64bit.
    Works like a charm, extremely fast, i already converted tons of MKV and RMVB to load them on my iPhone. this freeware is amazing.
