I am running a 5870 with the 12.1 driver set and am trying to use the video converter.

When I look at the converter it only tells me I can drag and drop to a media player device to invoke this functionality. I do not want to do the conversion this way - I want to specify a file and an output type - I removed the drag & drop functionality and now I don't even get the video converter at all in catalyst.

Yet when I looked at the installed options it clearly show the video converter is installed. Does anyone have any idea why I can't seem to get this functionality without drag and drop?

Thanks for the reply. I tried your suggestion to no avail. I uninstalled all of the 12.1 components, reinstalled 12.1a including all video conversion parts and drag and drop video conversion. I now get the exact thing as before from CCC - when I go to 'video conversion' in CCC  it only shows the drag and drop 'enable' acceleration checkbox - with no way to start a conversion without using drag&drop.

He's right, I just faced the very same problem. Clean install of 12.1a, including the video converter. Result:

Yup...I just tried to install the converter from 11.10 & 11.8 and no joy.

I thought that too - but  that doesn't do anything as it IS already installed and showing as installed...

Read what that says, it says "when a media file is dragged and dropped onto a portable media player", I haven't seen a stand alone AVIVO converter in ages. However, Windows Live Movie Maker is GPU assisted, as well as able to use all CPU cores and has many more options than the AVIVO converter ever did.

You certainly don't have a clue what you're talking about. The AVIVO converter used to be there and work until 12.1. And the Live Movie Maker won't do 1080p h264, only wmv, which is sh*t.

You're entitled to your own opinion, and 12.1 WHQL hasn't been released yet

Not at all accurate... from their CURRENT man page on video conversion functionality - clearly states it has such functionality:

Converting Videos Using AMD Video Converter

Use AMD Video Converter to convert video files on your computer into a format more suitable for video editing or viewing on a portable media player.
Note: AMD Video Converter is available only if the AVIVO software component was selected during AMD software and driver installation.

In either Standard View or Advanced View, click Video > AMD Video Converter.
In the AMD Video Converter page, click the Start Video Converter button. The AMD Video Converter wizard opens, prompting you to select the desired input file, output folder, file format, and other criteria.
When prompted by Step 1 of the wizard, specify the following:

Input File-The file to be converted. If needed, click Clear to reset your file selection, or Select Source to browse for another file on your computer. You can also select Show the File Name Only to show only the file name component of the selected file.

Properties for the selected file are automatically listed on the page.
Output Folder-The folder to contain the converted file. If needed, click Browse to select another file location. You can also select Generate Auto-Numbered Files to automatically and sequentially append numbers to the names of output files for better file organization.
Click Next.
When prompted by Step 2 of the wizard, specify the following:
Output Video Format-The desired output file format. For more information, see AMD Video Converter Formats.
Output Quality-The video quality of the output file. Output quality may affect the file size of the output file.
Output File-The name of the output file.
The properties for the input and output files are listed on the page and are automatically updated based on output quality.
Click Next.

A progress dialog appears, indicating that the video conversion has begun. If needed, click Cancel to stop the conversion. In the confirmation dialog that appears, click Yes to exit the wizard, or No to continue with the conversion.

Once the conversion has successfully been completed, the wizard updates to show the details of the output file.
If desired, click Open Folder to view the contents of the output folder, or Play File to view video playback of the output file.
Click Exit to close the wizard.

The input file is converted according to the specified file format and output file name.
Tip: For information on transferring video to and from a portable device, see the documentation for the device.

Does anyone from AMD ever read or respond to any of these issues?

In a way you are lucky...I can't even download the damn thing. Anyhow, I found that AMD Gaming has a Twitter account. Reading a excerpt they seem to listen to users and mention the changes that are made because of them. So...I'm just saying
