I had a specialized issue for converting a certain video file codec that is not part of ANY other conversion software. The developer bent over backwards for me to tweak the code to help me out. In fact, the developer was successful just today and I just now was able to convert a really important video I needed for work, but could not view. THE SUPPORT IS AMAZING!!!! - PROMPT, FRIENDLY AND REALLY USEFUL! I love supporting developers like this and it is what really sets other applications apart in the end. I can therefore, with great confidence, highly recommend this software. :)

@Jess, Yes, I'm with you in realizing that the field is vast and daunting, which is why I suggested that there is a book project awaiting some enterprising expert who wants to fill that aching need. No, I did not intend to lump the "Chinese converter pack" of converters at the end of my quick, incomplete market survey of available products together with the names of other long-established applications in any other way but to say, Here are a lot of movie / video applications, all of which, in various ways and to various degrees, perform some conversion functions. What we need is a guide to sort them all out and tell us what each does, does not do, etc. No quality implications were made or intended. While Microsoft Word or Excel would not qualify to be included in such a list, all of them there, and many others which claim to be able to convert one video into another, or to edit one type of video file but export it in another, thus qualifying in my little mind as being a "converter," would qualify for the list and should be written about in such a comprehensive guide. Yes, I agree with you that the Top 10 List is so narrow and so restrictive that its very presence "smells" of functioning more as an advertising vehicle for the included products, rather than an objective analysis of the marketplace that an organization like Consumer Reports would have produced. Maybe you think I was a bit too subtle in my attempt to praise only the fact that the Top Ten List produces a useful guide and that I implied through literary reference to a famous Shakespearean play that something about the whole list smelled fishy. But, as I said, I don't have direct evidence that those companies which appear on that list actually paid an advertising fee to be included in a limited set of reviews that they themselves ultimately controlled through their influence on the publishers of the website. But I was merely trying to avoid a libel suit. I think sharp readers need not even read between the lines to perceive what I was aiming at. You do have some astute readers visiting this site, don't you? Or are my complaints elsewhere that almost no one here knows how to write a useful review falling on completely deaf ears? Possibly they can't write, because they can't read either. In any case, your echoing of the same sentiment in your other words can only help those remedial readers get the point, if it escaped them at all in the first place, which I doubt. I don't write to be obtuse or to obfuscate the meaning of what I am saying. I use big words occasionally because they are best words at the time. Online dictionaries are available for translation. Thanks for your reinforcement of the points I made. We differ only in styles of expression, not in substance.

With the plethora of video converters out there, is there anyone with the suitable expertise in the fields of video formatting AND software design / productivity who can separate the wheat from the chaff? I would like to see a thorough review comparing what each of the video converters do, what they don't do, why we need them, which is best for the money, and which is not worth sneezing on. How much overlap and redundancy is there between these products? Do I need "all" of them to cover the gaps of any one of them? Or, is there one Swiss Army Knife of video converters that will do just about everything well. And, what it doesn't do, or do well, tell us about that, too. That would be a very useful review. Additionally, or alternatively, links to professional articles on reliable websites that help people like sort out the distinctions would also be valuable. To put this request in other terms: What does MPEG2 Works do (or do better or differently) in regards to taking in the format of one type of video file and putting some other kind of video file that can play on the same input device or across a range of other devices. I'm talking about applications like IFFmpeg, ffmpegX, Handbrake, QuickTime, Cinematize Pro, iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Flash Video Converter, Moavi, Miro, Ondesoft, Leawo, Wondershare, and the other brand spinoffs of the same engine marketing under different names in the recent Chinese converter invasion. Do the job right yourself, and you've got a book in the making, which you can publish as an eBook with a place like Packt Publishing. Hell, they deluge me almost every day with the latest high tech tome about picayune stuff that I wouldn't dare stuff into the head of Cray computer designer. Surely, they will welcome a volume that demystifies the digital video format jungle in such a way that regular consumers (will you stand up in the back, please?) can grok it and benefit from your insights. If not that guy, then the six of us of wonder about such things will appreciate such illumination.

After trying this for a couple of times I cannot say I am impressed. In several occasions it delivers choppy playback results. In one movie it just removed the audio channels only video was visible. A defunct app that is too expensive. Not recommended.

Does this convert AVCHD? I've read everything on this site and on developer's site but no mention. If it does convert it to something like M4V or M4P or Apple Pro Res.... does it do it faster than other apps like Handbrake etc. Or roughly the same speed. Thanks.

5.0 is solid and dependable and creates excellent quality videos, far better than any other conversion engine available. It takes a while finding everything, but such is the way of most quality tools in a production environment. If you deal in video formatting of any type, get this one. A steal at twice the price.

A recent project at home has been to create a home network (LAN) interconnecting our computing and audiovisual equipment. An important component of this system is a Network Attached Storage Hard Drive able to DLNA-stream to the ethernet/internet-capable TV and BluRay player, the pictures, music and films stored within it. However, the codecs supported by the TV and the BluRay player are rather limited, and we decided to have our film collection (in disk image or VIDEO_TS format) as a .mpg (MPEG2) library. Our limited knowledge on video conversion had to be complemented with a lot of research on the topic, exploration of several pieces of software, trial and error. Ultimately, for our purpose, MPEG2 Works 4 Advanced was the ideal application to successfully undertake the job. As any feature-full application it is not easy to master, yet in our opinion the effort is worth it. There is also some excellent free software available to undertake the task (which we have used for other image processing purpose), but in our hands it seemed to be as difficult to learn and did not render the desired results in this case. The price for MPEG2 Works is also below the tag of other shareware competitors, which in our hands also failed to generate .mpg from our sources. Even if it is not obvious for the low level user (like us) to learn the software, it is crucial the excellent customer support we have received from its developer. Besides explanations to help us to apply the software, he has offered to introduce additional functions to ease our conversions. Importantly, the software is currently ongoing further development and several key features (key to us) are on their way. The developer has been very approachable and personable, replying swiftly to several inquiries. A disclaimer: we do not have any personal or professional link to the MPEG2 Works developer beyond the e-mail exchanges resulting from customer support after our purchase of the software.

The demo was crippled. The functions I needed were not available in the demo. Couldn't test it, so I won't purchase it. You could time-limit the demo version, put watermarks in the output, make output low resolution. There are all kinds of things to do to keep people from using your software with out paying. But when you disable functions, people can't test it thoroughly and you lose potential business--mine this time.

The word ADVANCED in the title of this program seems very appropriate. When I opened this application, I realized just what a beginner I was. I was attempting to convert an .avi file to mpeg. The original appears to be PAL. I couldn't even figure out how to load the .avi file in the program. The "easy" solution "One-Click DVD" is not available in the Demo so I have no idea if this would have worked for me. I had no success with MPEG Streamclip or Handbrake. I don't mind paying for programs that work for me, but I guess I will never know. Bottom Line: If you're looking for a program with a simple interface, this might not be the one.

Well this may be great or it might not, but I really don't know either way. The demo version has so much functionality disabled that I just don't know what it can do successfully. As an example, I have a .ts file (Mpeg2) from my freesat box that I would like to put onto a DVD but I don't know whether this app will do it or not. I have successfully found one route via VLC and Toast that works, but it does seem that this app might be a smoother way of doing it. Might being the operative word...

I have been an avid user of this app since I believe the first release and it has been the number one used app in my collection for video conversion and authoring. I would highly recommend this application to anyone who works with more than one video file format and who need to translate between those formats. The customer support is outstanding with almost instant email reply directly from the developer himself, not some lackey or auto-responder. I have and still do give 5 stars to this handy INEXPENSIVE application.

as the previous poster noted i too was concerned about the limited nature of the demo, but after email contact with the courteous and knowledgeable developer mr. serbian i took a chance and bought the app. i am truly impressed, it is an outstanding addition to my video tool kit. it has taken every type of conversion i have thrown at it and produced excellent results. the encoding process is at least 3 times faster than ivcd and approximates the length of your input file. for example a 65 min .mov project took 75 min to convert to mpeg2 and a few more minutes to burn. quality was almost at the level of a store bought dvd. very little pixelation or blocky stuttering. audio/video mix very smooth. extremely easy for the newbie to mac and video conversion to use. one-click dvd works flawlessly. countless options for the more fluent videophile to explore. customer support the best i have encountered on the web. help is just an email and seemingly a few minutes away. put your worries to rest on the limited demo and try the full package. you will be happy you did. 5 STARS

In my opinion, MPEG2 Works 4's real strength is its simplicity. When I need to convert a video I reach for ffmpegX first, as I’ve spent many hours figuring out its quirks and usually get good results. Although I also have MPEG Streamclip and a number of other utilities, sometimes I run across a problem video for which figuring out a solution takes more time than I’m willing to invest. Often, MPEG2 Works 4 simply works with these videos. Conversion times are longer than using ffmpeg, of course, and I agree with downunderstew that the interface could be better. But the resulting video quality is great, and I find it’s a valuable part of my video conversion toolkit. The author, Serbian, is also responsive and courteous.

I bought it, converted a little mov to mpeg as per instructions (maxed out my C2D for 15 minutes), and did not get the 3 files as per instructions despite being told everything went fine (I only get the m2v file). So I used VisualHub to make a mpeg-2 file and then tried to add subtitles as per instructions and get "the application spumux quit unexpectedly" Waste of money

I may eventually learn how to use ffmpegX and HandBrake, etc., but I guess that starting with MPEG2 Works 4 Advanced will be much easier. Information about typical times, e.g., convert a 4gb PAL dvd to NTSC, would be useful.

I use MPEG Streamclip, Handbrake, Mac the Ripper and FFMPEGx which are all free to handle my conversion needs. I also have EyeTX hybrid which allows me to convert recorded TV shows to whatever format I need as well.

UPDATE: I have now tested the same files with Visualhub and MPEG Streamclip, and they can do everything I'd want them to do (including converting MPEG-2 to DVD), and they seem to match what this app can do step for step. Visualhub is cheap and MPEG Streamclip is free, and you can actually USE both to see their functionality. To the developer--I got so tired of seeing "This is disabled in DEMO mode" that I eventually used AppZapper--quite successfully, I might add--and blew your app off my hard drive. Make a functional demo and I'll try it, but this time, I will pass.

I have to agree - the demo is ridiculous. It seems to be a ffmpeg GUI in the mold of VisualHub - but how good it is is anyone's guess. I wanted to check subtitle support - I get "this feature is not supported in demo mode". All I can say is "What demo mode"?

Whoa, I just noticed that it said it converts Tivo files. I am going to have to check this out after I get home tonight and see how it does with that. Toast is fried for that purpose ever since the last Tivo update.

Heavy on features, should be a really useful application, if only it would allow a little more freedom in the evaluation.

I would like to test the app but because of the restrictions I take a look at the forum: It looks like tha app is able to handle more than one language (audio) file. This is really cool... But there is no DVD menu! So you can put for exampele, more than one episode of an TV show to DVD, but can only jump with chapter marks from one to the next episodes. Menu funktionality is planed in the future. And there are chapters! This is a function which is iMovie missing I think... So if you one tool for most of DVD authoring but menus this is great!

If this fully works with TiVo files I am in since Toast AND Popcorn have stopped working. This is a much better price than either of those "broken" apps. The TiVo fall update stopped them from working properly (hanging transfers, audio out of sync, etc.) and my hard drive is filling up.

I'm not quite sure this is shareware. The downloadable demo is 90% crippled - which makes it impossible to evaluate. The only function to assess speed is a conversion process that would appear to take hours to compete for a simple movie TS stream. You can convert a TS stream into burnable DVD files with smallDVD in 10 minutes and its free!! It also has menu creating built in. Add to that an interface that has no progress meter, no cancel conversion button (you have to force quit) - even the mplayer for movies doesn't a pause button. Maybe I am being unfair but the demo is so crippled it impossible to find any redeeming quality about this software - try smallDVD or tele2dvd - both free if all you want is DVD authoring.

This is a handy app to have around. Like someone wrote, you can't have too many video/conversion apps on standby; this one looks really useful, with lots of accessible functions and features. With terminal capability and ability to handle PAL/NTSC, this is one multi-purpose conversion tool.
