Media Converter is an batch converter for media files. it can convert almost every input media file to another format. It includes a few presets, but new ones can be created and added to the site.

Media Converter uses smart settings, to preserve size and aspect ratio when batch converting media files.

Media Converter is powered by a lot of open source utilities. It uses ffmpeg to convert the media files.

I just updated to Mountain Lion (10.8.2), and now although Media Converter v1.2 rewraps the video, there is no audio?

I use this all the time with my AVCHD .MTS video files, and it works great with no quality loss re-wraping to .MOV files.

Though this is free the quality is very poor. Also struggles with aspect ratios.
Very simple but Handbrake seems to be much better.

i can't say i have tried a full encoding yet but don't forget media converter can be very handy for drag and drop, batch convert operations with passthrough support, something handbrake lacks.

This is a great app with one exception every time put in a 4:3 video no matter what I change the settings too it treats it as a 16:9 video.

This is what I've been waiting for ever since the demise of VideoHub. And this one is free. And simple ... but powerful. And extensible. The simple interface belies its actual power. Very good potential. Excellent for a version ONE.

Tried a couple of mkv files. Not one worked.
This version is useless to me.

Uses a old ffmpeg from another app. The dev doesn't seem to know how to compile a FFmpeg himself.
Anyway, it is simple to use but lacks many codecs and options.
Good is free though.

I've compiled FFmpeg since Burn version 1.0. Although 'Media Converter' uses the same ffmpeg-mt version (which is a bit older than the regular version) it's recompiled to support al the included codecs and external libraries (x264, libvpx etc.) to support the included presets (Burns version only supports what it needs, to keep it small).

You're free to use your own version of ffmpeg compiled with more codecs (see Preferences... -> Advanced -> Use Custom ffmpeg binary).

Options will be added in newer versions based on its users. It is the first version!

All feedback and ideas are welcome though:

awesome! a free batching GUI front end to ffmpeg. I love it so far. Preset editing should able to be accessed from the main window somehow (at bottom of preset pop-up menu maybe?) and you should be able to duplicate presets. But other than that, great. I like that you can specify command line options by hand or use the GUI - whichever you prefer.

I just made a couple preset files for re-wrapping AVCHD (.MTS files) from a video camera to an h.264 quicktime movie that can be played/transcoded for editing with quicktime based software:
