What is SpeedyMediaConverter?
SpeedyMediaConverter is a undesirable media converter that our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com have classified as a potentially unwanted program. Removing this converter and getting a more reliable one is an option worth considering, because this converter only changes the file format, while real video converters recode and change variable bitrate/framerate, metadata, framing, synchronization, and so on. SpeedyMediaConverter does not seem to do this as it converts a file in a matter of a few minutes, while reliable converters take their time to do the job right. Apart from its poor converting function, this program can also display commercial advertisements and gather non-personal information about you for marketing and advertising purposes. So if you have this converter, we invite you to take a few minutes of your precious time to learn more about it.
Where does SpeedyMediaConverter come from?
This converter was developed and published by an unknown software developer which makes this program all the more suspicious. However, this is not the first time we encounter a program such as SpeedyMediaConverter. Its secretive developer has previously released an exact clone of this program called EasyMediaConverter and another very similar converter called SimpleMediaConverter. Even the names of this trio are very similar making it obvious that they are all related. Their developers go out of their way to set up download-hosting websites, and in the case of SpeedyMediaConverter the website address is Speedymediaconverter.com. Currently, this is the only place where you can get this converter as it yet to be bundled with other programs. But we have a hunch that it will not be long before we stumble upon software bundles that contain it.
How does SpeedyMediaConverter work?
Our researchers have installed and tested SpeedyMediaConverter to see what it can actually do. The main reason why people get this converter is because it is free. Of course, it has an ad-free version, but it is paid. Users like free software, but this software also comes at a price, although it is different. You may start seeing commercial advertisements that generate alternative revenue for SpeedyMediaConverter’s developers. Regardless, the main reason why this program is considered as potentially unwanted is the fact that its conversions are of poor quality. Yes, this program supports a lot of media formats ranging from plain AVI files to the currently very popular MKV. It can also convert audio files such as MP3, OGG, WAV, and some others. However, you might want to go for an alternative program because its conversions are of rather poor quality. Very fast conversion times are just one obvious indication of this. We have also received complaints that sometimes this program does not work at all which is bad news for users who chose to buy it.
How do I remove SpeedyMediaConverter?
All in all, you can keep SpeedyMediaConverter if you really want to, but then again, there is really no reason not to remove it and get another converter that can get you better results. Commercial advertisements and information collection is a real deal breaker and the fact that it is prone not to work at all definitely makes it undesirable. So, if you want to remove SpeedyMediaConverter, then go to the Control Panel and click the Uninstall button.
