  1. The file that I use to install is downloaded from http://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter/

    I scanned the file at virustotal.com and this is the result https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/42b0df79927249c34f556502f87a9e7dd8db22ea31cdb03dfa0...77fd/analysis/

    opencandy scans the computer before it installs anything to see what you have before making offer. so if you do not mind your pc being scanned by spyware you are possibly ok..What about DVD flick, would that do?

    I have not tried yet, seems like DVD flick is mainly for converting files.

    I use the freemake for cut and join and convert videos, easy to use but the virus warning make me unease.

    Is there any other software that can cut away unwanted parts of video?

    Is there any other software that can join video?

    Thanks.

    Yes it's safe to use. but don't download the extra toolbars, if you don't have any protection get AVG! www.avg.com/ The reason why you go to those pages ("that are not safe,") is because you have Adware you can download an extension to help with those Ads. you have to use and download Google Chrome... www.google.com/chrome/ the extension for Google Chrome is called AdBlock. download the extension here...

    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adblock/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom?hl=en-US

    for a safe download here is the website for Freemake Video Downloader

    www.freemake.com/free_video_downloader/

    i already tried it, it's safe to use ("without those toolbars")

    I'm having hassles putting an mp4 file onto a DVD so I downloaded Freemake after reading this thread.

    It's working as I speak. Plodding along, 14% complete after ten minutes.

    But when/if it finishes this I'll throw it away.

    It is plagued with ads and traps.

    You can carefully download and install, doing a 'custom' install and avoiding all the addons - and that's a careful process in itself, they're very cunning with it - but when you get to the end you finish with a screen with a great big button in the middle which can't be removed and which wants you to install something else. Which won't be good.

    Even as it is working the working screen has a fat bar across the top inviting you to download something - which I'll bet won't be good, either.

    And the first time I tried it I went to write straight to dvd drive, which is the default setup (it is writing an .iso to hard drive now) and it told me the disk in the drive needed formatting! I've never heard of a dvd being formatted prior to burning.

    It is too much of a hassle, I don't want it. Particularly as what we're looking at here is probably merely a front end, a gui, for free ffmpeg encoding software. Or if it is not, then the principle remains the same: all I, we, require is freeware ffmpeg with a user friendly front end.

    That's not too much to ask in this day and age.

    edit: Well in fact I just stirred myself into action and googled it and immediately found two free front ends for ffmpeg: ffmpegyag and avanti.

    Possibly they'll be a bit 'high-tech', bit geeky and hard to come to grips with but they're true, real, honest and they'll be good I don't doubt. Worth whatever little struggle one might have to make to come to grips with them.

  8. For making simple DVDs try AVS2DVD.

    Try blocking OpenCandy's URLs in your hosts files. That will probably (I haven't tested it in the last year or so) prevent all the adware that Freemake tries to install.

  14. If you have to use freemake, install freemake exactly as shown in this video and there is no virus or anything.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7L7ZJK2DLpE&feature=youtu.be

    of course I can't promise it will still work in 6 months, just copying from other thread for someone who needs it today.

    maybe a little unrelated, but one thing I think is good is to always right click your control panel uninstall programs list and sort by "date installed" or "date modified" in case you install something by mistake you won't miss it and can delete it right away. Maybe common knowledge for some, but I didn't realize it until recently.

  16. just a warning to anyone looking at the video on youtube - IT IS A SCAM as freemake is full of malware n virus .
    Quote Quote  
  17. Heh It is not "full of malware n virus"

    First, install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
    Then download Freemake Video Converter and start installing it. Please, be carefull to not install any other software than just only Freemake Video Converter. So do not just blindly click Next -> Next. READ what installer like to install and deselect all crapware.

    If Malwarebytes Anti-Malware catch OCSetupHlp.dll, quarantine it (it is OpenCandy crap).

    That's it.

    Yep, but most misses it and just click yes, I agree to everything. But they are making it a bit confusing too...especially with the I agree I decline options.
    And when people install those toolbars - do the software companies actually make any money as I would say that most people would remove the toobar as soon as they can.

    They would be far better to simply ask for a paypal donation. I often donate to software that I find useful.

    My parents never uninstall any toolbars or customized search engines....so I guess they make a LOT of money of some users.

    Just use Xmedia Recode! :P

  24. I agree with all Freemake programs being safe and as said above .When you install it make sure you click slowly and check the custom install when installing it.I have been using all the Freemake programs on there sight for well over a year and yes i was click happy the first couple times and it installed a toolbar and a program I think I did not want but after learning I clicked custom install and declined those extra installs and everything runs smooth as you originally intended. Really though if you was to install the others installs and not custom its really no big worry or threat .Just uninstall them as I did originally. Good luck on anyone who reads this but it is a really nice program I use a lot. I have the full version of the video converter.I also have the Freemake video downloader and the Freemake youtube to MP3. Ps you can just have the video downloader and have it not download the videos and download it and convert to a Mp3 if you only want one of these too programs. Cheerio peeops
