I have downloaded and tried many different programs which have pretty much all sucked, but I found WinAvi 6.3 and after working out a few bugs, its GREAT.. It's very easy to use. It can convert and burn all in one program, and its SO FAST. HOWEVER... most of the videos I download are soo dark, they need to be brightened and WinAvi can't do it. I have used CucuSoft to convert the files so I can brighten them.. but it takes like 5 hours! It's ridiculous. Anyone know of another program thats as FAST and SIMPLE as WinAvi that allows you to brighten the movies???
