It launches, displays the reminder about the beta and then stops responding. I have to force qui it.

MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard... no problems whatsoever. Drag, drop, enter new filename (copy and paste path from dropped file), tada.... took about 60 seconds for a 27mb mov file to convert to mp4. Thanks Dev!

Dragging a movie didn't work for me. It is unclear which formats are supported, there is no Manual or anything.

After manually entering the full path of a small *.avi (which VLC converts within a few seconds), a busy bar showed up, never turning into a progress bar. It didn't finish during writing this review.

The console contained the following lines:

2007-05-20 17:21:29.075 Simple Convert[759] *** NSTimer discarding exception 'NSRangeException' (reason '*** -[NSCFArray objectAtIndex:]: index (1) beyond bounds (1)') that raised during firing of timer with target 1b5250 and selector 'runPrimaryTask:'
2007-05-20 17:21:29.076 Simple Convert[759] isRunning: 1, _endRunLoop: 0
2007-05-20 17:21:29.076 Simple Convert[759] isRunning: 0, _endRunLoop: 0

Hope that helps to fix this bug.

I tried to convert a Flash video. I dragged it to the first box, set a name to save it as in the second box. I clicked Convert. A bar started to show activity. Two hours later it was still apparently converting. There is no progress indicator, no messages to tell you what, if anything, is going on, no Readme file, no help files. A worthless piece of software.

ABSPJL:

I just wanted to remind you that this is a BETA release and is only at version 0.2. It would be very helpful if you could send me the file type you were trying to convert, like is says in the initial window. Just so you know, I'm working on error checking for version 0.3.

Thanks

roskakori had trouble on 20 May 2007
When double clicking the icon, it starts to bounce in the dock, but never stops and actually pops up an application window. Furthermore no little black arrow shows up right to the bouncing icon. I checked the system console, it did not contain any messages.

System: Mac OS X 10.3.9, PowerMac G5 (single CPU).

BTW, the link to version 0.2 is broken, I had to download 0.2.2 from your website.

Well, it eventually stopped bouncing (after like 2 minutes) and popped up a dialog announcing that it cannot check for updates.

After that, the application window showed up.

BTW, the computer was online, so I guess it checks at the wrong web location.

Sorry about all of the update checking issues with Simple Convert. I have been in the process of moving my server back to the US from France, so it has been down. That is why the icon bounces. Just to let everyone know, Simple Convert is back in development now that my workstation has been fixed and will have a new release fixing several issues soon.
