Facebook "liking" is the new coupon code. In recent months I've seen lots of offers for free or discounted goodies in exchange for liking a company. Do I feel a little icky about pimping those companies to my FB friends? Sometimes. Do I like free stuff even more? You know it!
From now until Sept. 25, Facebook users can get Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 5.4.2 free just by liking Wondershare. The program normally sells for $65.95.
Video Converter Ultimate lives up to its name by converting just about any video format to just about any other video format. It can also rip copy-protected DVDs and convert them for playback on iPods, iPhones, Zunes, and various other devices. (Android phones aren't expressly mentioned, but I'm 99.9% sure one of the iPhone profiles would work--and, if not, a custom profile.)
VCU can also edit videos, download videos from sites like YouTube and Metacafe, and burn videos to DVD, complete with snazzy menus. In other words, this is more than just the typical DVD ripper that usually shows up on, say, Giveaway of the Day. It's a full-featured video suite.
To get it, just click Wondershare's Like button, enter your name and e-mail address in the box that reveals itself below, and then click Get the Key Code. Wait a few seconds and you'll see a box enabling you to download the program.
While you're installing it, check your inbox for the registration code. (Mine arrived almost instantaneously.) You'll need it to turn the software from a trial version into an unlocked version.
Video Converter Ultimate is compatible with all versions of Windows. Grab it while it's free!
