great program! works fine and easy.
i use it next to 'bitvice' which is even better but more expensive.
the only problem is, it's software so it takes much to long to get the results. (sometimes allmost a day)
you need a 2th mac to do the job.
this kind of 'translation' needs a hardware solution.
so software with a hardware-card would be the best.

I couldn't try out the DEMO of MPEG2 WORKS because anything I wanted to do was greyed out.

So, for me, MPEG2 WORKS, doesn't.

Im very sorry for greyed out preset buttons in DEMO version of my little app, but since I dont use any kind of protection scheme with it to make purchasing process and starting to work with my app as simplier as I can for possible Customers and people willing to donate for my work, disableing the buttons was the only thing I could do...Anyway, there is at least one option on every section which You can try...If, for example, PAL preset buttons works for You, the NTSC buttons will work too for sure...You can use those available preset buttons to check the app quickly to see do You like it and does it work for You...That was my intention...

This is an excellent little program. As mentioned earlier, certainly worth a lot more than 10$.

The support is about the best you can imagine - I haven't found a commercial program yet which comes close.

This program is like a general-purpose Swiss Army knife for converting video files between formats in preparation for burning video discs. The emphasis is on creating files for DVD, VCD and Super VCD, but it also converts to and from other formats as well. I didn't try all the capabilities and formats this program has, but for what I used it for, it did the job flawlessly. I used it for preparing video files for a DVD. It is easy to use and produces output files which will drop right into authoring and burning programs such as iDVD, DVD Studio Pro, Toast, Sizzle, etc. The output files are compact in size yet still maintain good audio and video quality. This program ran without problems on my 4-year old G3 iMac - a major advantage, as some of the newer software requires a G4 or G5 processor. The tech support from the developer of this program is far better than the average. The developer updates the program on a regular basis, to add features requested by customers or to fix the rare bug. The developer maintains an online forum where you can ask questions and he answers them quickly and helpfully. He is happy to share his knowledge and help you use the program for the purpose you need. This program is really worth about $100, but he charges only $10 for it! An incredible bargain, in my opinion. Really, anyone who works with video on the Mac platform should have this program as part of their toolbox.

Absolutely the best app in its class, and the only one that does well what it says it does. A total must!
