  1. Very powerful program!
    I converted all my cdg file to video and now I can play them on my mobile devices or TV 🙂

  2. Can this system be used to do a bunch of files at once or only individually?

    • Professional version support batch conversion

  3. Wow Awsome program wish I would have had this program years ago love the fact I can use my own photo’s as a background keep up the good work

  4. How can you convert a CDG to MP4 without losing its original background? i.e, no background?

    • MP4 is a video format that preserves and “captures” the CDG background.

      • Which background should I use as program will not convert if left blank. With a background, I lose the background yellows and blues on the Sunfly and Legend tracks I have converted

  5. I have my files on my computer. They are separated as a CDG and a MP3 file which is in a folder for each song. If I upload the CDG file into this program how will it pull the audio? I would have thought there would be an input for both the MP3 AND the CDG to make a video file. Please explain. Thanks.

    • The software automatically matches the file CDG to the MP3. So you have to upload the cdg file or mp3 file only in the program.
      The important thing is that both cdg and mp3 files are in the same folder on your PC (and not on external disk).

  6. does this software convert the other way as well, to make MP4’s to CDG’s

    • No.. it only convert audio files (mp3, mid, kar, mp3+cdg) to video MP4 or AVI

  7. After converting cdg+mp3 files into mp4 files I have on the mp4 files only one audio channel left. So the stereo is gone. What went wrong?

    • To preserve stereo, select AVI as output format and then clic to Options (besides output format) to select WAV as audio encoder

  8. I converted my cdg +mp3 to mp4 and it won’t work on my tv trough my karaoke machine I put them on a USB because my karaoke machine is digital. How can I fix this?
