Great application that still looks ugly on retina display, in spite of recent updates.

The price tag is a joke right?

I suspect you feel the same way about Photoshop or other professional apps.

A 1-star review? Did it not work right for you? Or did you mean to use the comment field on the price complaint?

Ditto - giving it a one star review just for the price tag is pretty unfair... That's why they have a "Comment" category!

> What do you think the "Value" portion of the Review is for? Overall is not required to be an average of the individual criteria, otherwise it would be calculated automatically.

How do you view specific ratings someone makes for each category? I only see DelportF's single 1-star rating, not ratings for Value, Features, etc., which appears to be an Overall Rating.

We used this extensively until ver 5. Absolute garbage. Episode is now the standard.

When the product works, it works well. However I have been wondering if anyone is even working at this company any longer.

Emails have not been returned. Phone calls always seem to go to voice mail.

Due to AutoDesk's HORRIBLE mac support, we switched to Squeeze, but now their support is looking pretty dismal also.

I have this latest version and have been a user since version 4.3. I have had no problems running it on OS X 10.4.5. The programme has only become better, more codecs and a little bit faster. It is assuring to know that the developers continue to develop and upgrade the programme. I expect that if a new iPod comes out with different screensize (e.g. video iPod), the developers will add this to their compressors etc. A bit pricey, but the software is reliable.

Squeeze 4.1 is crashing on me every time when I export now that I installed Tiger. When it finishes compressing and is saving the file...bam!

Sorenson, please release an update that's 10.4 compatible! thanks

loganschmid commented on 28 Apr 2006
I continually have problems with Squeeze 4.1 - same issue: it crashes just before finishing a compression job, or in the middle of a batch job. Highly unstable. Additionally, when I tried to install version 4.3, I get error 1008, something about file permissions. I have no problem installing anything else on this machine, and permissions have been repaired on the startup volume.

Sorenson: get it together. Beta testing much?

-The interface is not user friendly. Presets change when you do not want them to change or get a different location.

+The endresult(files) is very good.
