iSquint is an iPod video conversion app for Mac OS X. It's many times faster than QuickTime Pro, works with almost all popular video formats, and it's infinitely free-er. It's also really easy. Just drag in your file, and click Start. You can also choose "TV" or "iPod" size, set your quality, or even go all-out by playing in the Advanced drawer.

On a 1GHz G4, iSquint can convert most video files to iPod-screen-sized videos in realtime. Intel Macs are up to twice as fast, and can convert videos upwards of 5x realtime! Depending on a few factors, a 20 minute video will take up anywhere from 50-150MB of disk more...

What's New

Version 1.5.2:
  • Certain types of files converted to plain MPEG-4 no longer show up without video in QuickTime Player 7.4 and higher.
  • iSquint now includes a program droplet called "Debreaker" to repair damaged "no video" .mp4 files created by earlier versions of iSquint.
  • Tiny files that finish ridiculously quickly are no longer assumed to be errors.
  • Turkish Localization by Ugur Sofra.


Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later

True, it's been discontinued, but iSquint was an easily used tool for media conversion - ideal, say, for converting downloaded TV shows to the iPod Touch. The developer moved onto other projects, but the baton was passed several other software makers, most notably Video Monkey - a fast and versatile application with an even wider array of potential uses. iSquint is no longer with us, but Video Monkey is, and available for free.

Discontinued though it is, iSquint remains a fantastic, simple, reliable and effective piece of software: with the possible exception of Handbrake (which offers more control), the best free media encoder I have encountered, period. Even now, years after discontinued development, the advanced settings make it easy to convert files for an iPhone or iPod touch. Definitely one to file under the "it just works" category.

It can take a while to complete a file conversion - but likely it will take that long with any converter. It will occasionally crash during a conversion, which can be frustrating when they take a while to complete - but video is always a pain and will cause even the most professional program to crash every once in a while.

In short, I would love it if the developer came back to the project. But if not: thanks anyway! You've done a wonderful job, and made my (and I'm sure many others) life much easier.

A gem in the rough of the converting world. This product falls under the category of "just works". I have never had a problem converting any file to MP4. The quality could be better, but it is decent for this app. It's a shame this app has been discontinued. Hopefully someone can pick up where the developer left off and continue this great app.

This app still comes in handy for troublesome mp4 files that fail to convert properly for the iPod/iPhone.

Hope your personal reasons that took you away from this project are going fine, but please considering in returning.
iSquint is the best app I've seen to get it's job done.
