Ashraf has posted this review in the comments over on the GAOTD page and on his own site here:

The Good
* Supports many input video formats.
* Supports multiple output video formats.
* You can choose from predefined profiles for things like DVD, VCD, iPod, PSP, Zune, etc.
* You can rip just the audio from videos if you want.
* Very light on resources/lighter on computer resources then FormatFactory.
* You can drag + drop files into the converter.
* You can convert more then one file at once.
* You can change volume of sound in videos when converting.

The Bad
* You can’t input or output SWF videos.
* A few interface improvements can be made.

Free Alternatives
FormatFactory
Super
Any Video Converter
YouConvertIt.com

Verdict
ConvertVid deserves two thumbs up. It is a very nice program that supports multiple input/output formats and is very light on computer resources. While it is true it does not have all the features that FormatFactory has, ConvertVid outshines FormatFactory in the field of computer resources usage (or lack there of since ConvertVid is more light on resources - see numbers above). Therefore this is my recommendation for today: if you are on an older computer or you would like a video converting program that is light on resources, grab ConvertVid. Everyone else can just stick to FormatFactory because FF can basically do all of what ConvertVid can (with like just the one exception I mentioned above) ...
