The download link above AND the developer’s site appear to be offline — all you get when clicking either is a new, blank page.

@GeoProf,

If you're really hankering for it, it's still available here

http://conversion.en.softonic.com/mac

amongst other such places.

This new beta still choked on several movies.
Sometimes it actually worked but the movies played jerky to say the least. Very probably GOP problems.

Amazingly fast! Convert .ts h264 files in a wink (not like iFFmeg of FFmpegX ;-) — they crash on that format).
My only complaint is that it has no crop or trim feature, otherwise it would be my favourite!

I used to love ffmpegX, but now the reigning king is the $15 iFFmpeg (currently at 3.6.6 — http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/35846/iffmpeg), which has wayyyy more features than any other such app (except perhaps the $300-$1200 professional systems, like Episode pro — but even Apple Compressor pales next to iFFmpeg). It uses ffmpeg 1.2 or whatever the newest version of that great, oft-updated open source en/trancoding engine, is fairly easy to operate, transcodes very fast, is constantly improved by its extremely considerate developer, and produces awesome results.

A simple and fast application. Easy to use.

Works fine in the way I use it (OS X 10.7 - MPEG-2 video from a DVD Rip to differents output format).

Very good for a beta.

Congratulation to the developer.

A very basic video converter. It choked on three movies and then I deleted the app. Not worth my time.

I agree with greedfrank: Indeed, we do not need another video converter. Already 13 in a dozen available.

I can highly recommend Adapter and or iFFMpeg. The first for some basic converting, the latter for extensive and high quality converting.

Nice little app. I don't think other apps such as Handbrake does a better job. Sure you may not be able to adjust as many settings but I never touch them anyway as I mostly used it to convert MTS to MP4 so I can edit in iMovie.

Another converter using the great FFmpeg. Do we need another one? No, we do not!
There are tons of free alternatives doing a much better job. Evom, Handbrake and Adapter.

Watching at the FFmpeg binary used: it is a illegal FFmpeg version (could give problems in some countries) and such binary is illegal to distribute. Could well be listed in blacklist by FFmpeg.org very soon.

Hi, I'm the developer of Conversion.

Could you please tell me why the FFmpeg binary used is illegal?

I think he is referring you distribute a binary with several non free libraries - example x264, mp3lame, ..
I think you should consider reading the licenses of video and audio codecs before you run into deep troubles.

Lame is licensed under LGPL, and x264 under GPL.
I think it's perfectly legal to distribute such binaries, as many others do.
