    Sorenson Squeeze

    I have been exporting with Squeeze 10 since it's release and go back asfar as Squeeze 5 I can no longer get into Sorenson to download any of the Versions I had to load onto a new computer with Avid 

     

    I have no idea how to work with Avid export without it since using it for so long 

     

    request is it possible to communicate with Sorenson anymore and recover the program after all it was an expensive program and worked well with Avid 

     

    if Sorenson is now a lost cause what is available in lieu in Avid Media Composer 

     

    thank you

    Good Point, I guess they got squeezed somewhere between those Adobe $600/yr for life customers and the MPEG Streamclip no budget folks. I always liked Jeff and the other support staff... so long Sorenson, you can take a bow.

    I had three keys and it won't download anymore so I have lost it and that is pretty rough ... their download site is still there it will download but won't take a legitimate key anymore that's a bit rough I'm getting tired of the attitude of these big companies what happened to the spirit of good will you would think they could at least let the faithfull continue with theit paid versions .. such is life

    Pardon ..sure but it won't take a legitimate key anymore you can punch in a legitimate key and it will isplay an error message  that the key is invalid given that one paid good money for it that's a bit rough in my book  ..

    cheers

    Did they happen to mention just how they will inform users of this update when, and if, it will be available?

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze

    I've always used Sorenson Squeeze since Media college in 2000, when I graduated. I always found Sorenson Squeeze to be expensive but worked pretty well. Never had any real issues just the odd carsh here or there when encoding. I've been tsting Handbrake which is free and  so far it seems very good and the presets are updated and have lots of options to choose from.
