The interface is nice and simple. The encoding is sloooow But still faster than QT Pro. If you are going to encode from a DVD used mactheripper then use Handbrake to encode it. If you want to put existing videos on your new iPod with Video then this is a great app to do that.
Seems to do what it says. But no better than, for example, native QuickTime. 10 seconds seems a bit parsimonious for a trial. May be useful for some quick conversions, but it did not seem to give any exceptional quality to file size advantage.
First, if you are asking $10 for software, you had better ensure it does more than the free software from other developers.
Second, I tried to convert 10 glorious seconds from two different QuickTime movies and it crashed both times.
