Since upgrading Freemake Video Converter to 22.214.171.124 it now inserts a watermark at the end of every converted video. Does anyone know what the first version of freemake was to do this? Like I said it didn't do this until I upgraded the program (which I do every few months).
Secondly does anyone use other programs instead of Freemake? I feel that what they did was unethical. Not because they wanted to put a watermark at the end of converted files, but because of the way it was done (aka nothing in the version release notes or anywhere else). As a result I am ready to drop them if anyone suggest a good alternative.

What are your source files and what do you convert to?
Like do you start with dvd files and end with mp4?

Gold Pack is cost $5
So you can buy Gold Pack or download old version https://www.videohelp.com/download/FreemakeVideoConverter_126.96.36.199.exe
Or you can try what Baldrick offer
I downgraded for the time being but I am looking to switch.
Source files are mostly mp4's and wmv's. Watermark videos in another program and have to covert watermarked output to MP4, WMV, and FLV (which is done right now in Freemake).
Any other recommendation besides Video to Video Converter?
That's why I normally don't upgrade software that still works perfectly.
If you're looking for watermarking options, you could try Format Factory.
Its a well done program, BUT beware during installation, untick the adware and I also recommend you don't install Format Factory's own codec pack, as it could mess with the other codecs already on your system.
Other than that, its a great software, which could well suit your expectations.
It's a little late to speak for that but FM Video Converter is a good software for me, so, to remove the emergence of the logo, I think you can :
- download the old version (apparently available here on videohelp)
- test the trick of JOEMOE (it seems to work)
- or you need the Gold Pack of Free Make, I guess we have to pay OR search the Gold pack Key on the web (it's possible to find them ^^)
with the gold pack it's sure that there will be no watermak at the end of your videos.
Please don't recommend any warez hacks. Buy the software or use a real FREE converter.
oh sorry but don't worry, I don't talk of a crack or hack version of this very good software I really like it and he's good as it is.
those things are just traps to have a damn virus or trojan horse...
The old file seems to be down. Have anybody an actual link or could upload it please?
but better use other alternative software
because this not updated version

@mike20021969: nice workaround, thanks
Regarding Freemake Video Converter older versions: Version 188.8.131.52 ALSO has the Freemake Logo at the finish of videos of 5 mins duration and over! I would be interested to know the version number of the Freemake Video Converter which DOES NOT have the logo, ie, the last one before the Logo was introduced, please? Does anybody know?
