Video Converter Android / Re: choosing sdcard as output folder
« on: April 23, 2015, 02:58:28 PM »
I came here for the exact same reason! I cannot convert files due to the lack of internal storage space. Most apps upon install create their own private folder on the sd card where they can save datas without issues on all versions of android. I wish you could do the same with your app :)

Hello @sterval and welcome to the forum  :)
What you wrote is an interesting workaround, we know about the possibility to write to external MicroSDs in the folder "Android\data\package-id-folder" but we never thought to exploit it to let users with a full internal memory select the external drive. We can easily integrate it before the next release (v.2.7 "Horus" expected for May), we can add an option in the SETTINGS so that the application can write in that folder. Of course the problem is that only advanced users will surely be able to use it.
@sterval, thank you for the suggestion, if you want you can add a ticket in the bug tracker so that we can refer to it in the changelog. If you want, we can also send you, before the release, some development builds to let you test them  ;)

Hi, I'm new user of Total Video Converter 2.6, and I've noticed that whenever I try to choose the sdcard as my output folder application saves in another local folder.
What can I make to TVC choose sdcard (removable), as output folder?

Hello @fabionucci, first of all I want to thank you for using our products.
About what you wrote, I suppose the application behaves in this way because you are using Android "Kitkat" or one of the two versions of "Lollipop". On these Android versions, third-party applications, and this is the case of our ones, cannot write on external devices connected to the device (ex. MicroSDs). For this we introduced this feature, basically the application writes to a custom folder of the internal storage in order to avoid write failures. This folder can be changed of course, just go to: "SETTINGS"-> remove the check on "Input folder" if it's checked and then go to "Custom output folder". After the restart, the application will write automatically on the selected folder and will not show errors, but only if the folder is in the internal memory. More informations about the "Kitkat"+ limitations can be found here and here.
If you have other problems feel free to ask, the forum is made for this  ;)

Video Converter Android / Video Converter for Android 2.6 "Reno"
« on: December 23, 2014, 08:03:28 AM »
Check the official blog post on the aKingi website.


v. "Reno" - 2014/12/23
- introduced MIPS CPU support (ypee!);
- force to update all codecs to 2.6 version;
- introduced a new user friendly EULA GUI;
- fixed a bug with a custom dialog text color on old devices;
- minor fixes and improvements.

- when encoding with VP9 codec, on some devices it could take some time to stop the conversion.

v.2.6 "Reno" codecs-all
- built with latest NDK-r10d;
- introducing MIPS CPU support;
- updating FFmpeg to version 2.5.1;
- enabling ASM optimizations on some codecs (eg. ARMv7 with Neon extension);
- introducing livbpx library;
- introducing libwebp library;
- introducing libopus library.

Read here for more informations about this new release:

Today we made a new release of TVC, MVC and for the codecs. Read the blog post here:

We suggest all the users to update to this release, especially to don't forget to update codecs too.

Nice job but still is missing a lot things.

- x264 - the only real and good codec !

- 1 and 2 passes for xvid,  DivX and x264

- quality control in encoder  for 2 passes encoding to obtain exactly size I want.

- more control how codec should encoding video - for example for x264 should be line command to control all parametrs and maybe simpler version for heck or unchecked what I want to use while encoding.

- creating own profiles for encoding.

That's all for the time being  :)

Hello mirek190, welcome to the forum.
Yeah, the x264 reintroduction is at the forefront of features to be introduced, we are working hard to reinsert as soon as possible. We are also working on a simple command line interface, so that advanced users can insert their options and work also with two pass conversions. Thanks again for your ideas and sorry for the late reply, I'll try to be more present in the forum  ;)

Oh, I didn't know you had answered my post until now... Thank you for the answer. I am looking forward to see further improvements.

You're welcome, it would be great if every user reported his thoughts here instead of writing nonsense on the Play Store.

Hello lianergoist and welcome to the forum.
Yeah, most of the features you listed are set to be introduced in future versions. In particular, the auto-selection of width x height could be immediately introduced in the May release. The real time video feedback, instead, is more difficult to implement and would also require an internal codec modification but, again, it is also set to be implemented.
About the automatically selected bitrate, this is a our choice since this is an average helpful value (consider HD videos on poor devices), but maybe we will deploy a better algorithm to fit all the devices.
Thanks for your ideas and your reporting.

Hello P-Boy and thank you for reporting your errors and for purchasing the pro version. We will start immediately investigating for this problem. Please can you give me more informations about the parameters used for conversion? For example: it happens with MP4 or with AVI only? What about the time? Only with > 20 mins? Thanks again.

Hello Manny and welcome to the forum.

First of all, I'm sorry for the late reply. We are actively working to patch the application, because the problem you reported is a known bug (see this entry in the bug tracker -> We are going to change completely the "engine" of our app to let the user perform long time conversions without errors. For this we are going to release a 2.0 version for the end of December and we will also update codecs, so all users will have to update main app and the codec selected for your device. Please avoid leaving us a bad review on the Play Store and feel free to ask other questions if you have  :)
