Very strange behaviour with the 2.6 update. Upon launch the app displays the standard crash dialogue but the app hasn't crashed and is still running. I can cancel this dialogue and a short while later I get a kernel panic and need to reboot. Just tried v2.5.5 and that works fine. Anyone else seeing this? Will have to contact dev to see what's going on.

Metadata fetching works great. If an entry can't be found cause of a weird filename just change the title and hit the reload metadata button. It's that simple.
When sending feedback it's important for us developers to get information like your e-mail (how would we get back to you otherwise) and logs from the app. If you're not comfortable with that just send us an e-mail.
Yes, there are a lot of apps that can convert and encode video, but I think you will have a hard time finding an app with the same feature set for that price. If you don't need metadata, subtitles, presets, uploads and the convenience to do it all in one app there are free alternatives... sure.

I like What I see here. But can Roadmovie "mux" MKV to M4V (without re-encoding)?
I use iFlicks and it's so simple. A no brainer and fast at muxing, integrating soft subtitles and tag all my MKV to M4V HD films. At the moment I muxed some 200 HD films with only one or two failures.The only thing missing is Chaperts.

Oh well, I just try to convert a 1080 HD MKV to M4V (Apple TV) and RoadMovie started to re-enconde the damn thing. :-( Almost 4 hours to re-encode something that doesn't need to. Muxing only takes 2 to 15 minutes (depending on the audio and length of the film) and after that the film is ready to stream to Apple TV. Doesn't make any sense. Or did I miss some option to mux it?

No need to re-encode your mkv files with h264 video. Just use one of the "Copy to mp4" presets in the generic group. You can pass through both video and audio or pass through video and re-encode audio if you need. Really simple and very fast.

Same problem here. Tried different presets… none of them embeds the subtitles.

You need to go into Presets (upper left corner) and select the preset that you're using (Apple TV, iPad, etc) and check HARD CODED under subtitle selection. Then close the presets window and export to that preset on the main window.

I'm a teacher who primarily uses RoadMovie to encode videos with subtitles for my students. I realize there are all sorts of free alternatives to RoadMovie, but the convenience of RoadMovie is well worth the price as I don't have to use several different tools to sync subtitles, add subtitles to a movie, and encode a movie. More importantly, RoadMovie's encoding presets consistently provide better results than what I can get using other tools. Of course, I could probably get even better results if I took the time to learn FFmpeg commands, which can be used in RoadMovie, but, as I said, I use RoadMovie because it saves me time so I can focus on other teaching duties. When I do have issues or specific encoding questions, the support has been terrific; I usually hear back within a day or two and get help until my concerns are resolved.

One of the few converters that creates well encoded results. No timestamps problems - playing smooth all the way.

A bit expensive though.

I have been long looking for one solution that does it all and that just works - Roadmovie is the one.

As a non-english speaking person I very much appreciate the ability to include soft and hardcoded subtitles.

And whenever there is a problem, the developer answers almost instantly. Definitely recommended !

The program claims to export to "popular devices", but exporting to MPEG-2 DVD (which is a very popular device) is UNsupported. The program claims "SSA/ASS subtitles support", but font styles and text positions (specified inside SSA/ASS subtitles) are UNsupported.

CatherineB, you're absolutely right, at $29 RoadMovie is pretty halfassed comparatively. I inherited it at work, and it's been on my computer for two years, during which I have not used it even once because it's just so weak.

Thanks for stimulating me to nuke it from my Mac to make room for something of value, like iFFmpeg — which has become the best video encoder/transcoder/re-/muxer/etc. app available in probably the shortest development time in the history of electricity — and for only $10 !!! Finally we have an even more capable replacement for VisualHub. iFFmpeg can do almost anything and is easy peasy to use. However, if you're shooting for professional quality encoding it's not quite as much a no-brainer as VH was, but it can achieve video quality that VH could only dream of — if you know what you're doing. And if it doesn't have a feature you need, just email the developer and he'll usually add it for you within a few weeks.

I always try to remux a vid into a more appropriate container for my needs before going down the transcoding route, and for that there are a couple of easier apps (primarily remux, ps3muxer, Vidconvert, Permute, or for Matroska files there's MKVTools, among others). Finally the Mac has some options for dealing with Matroskas.

Should also mention that soft subtitled movies when viewed on my Touch (4th Gen) have weird line spacing. On a two line subtitle the top line is where you would expect it but the bottom line is right at the bottom edge of the screen.

Make sure you have the latest PSP firmware. Mount your PSP memory stick using USB or a memory stick reader. Make sure you have a folder named VIDEO at the root level of the memory stick. If not, you need to format your memory stick. Export your movie using the PSP preset and save it to the VIDEO folder on the memory stick. Done! You can also create a Destination that points directly to the VIDEO folder on the PSP so you don't even have to move them in there manually ;-)

Leppe had trouble on 26 Apr 2009
Ignore my previous comment please.

I've solved the problem.

Here is some feedback (if someone else should have the same issues)
-First of all, I had the latest version for the Elgato Turbo.264. Version 1.3 is the most recent one (today)!
-Since I own this stick for some time I updated the Elgate software via the build in software update function. I was always up to date this way.
-But it seems there is a "small" problem when you used the build in auto update function from Elgato's software regarding RoadMovie.
-The solution is to manual download the most recent version (today version 1.3) from the Elgato Web site.
-Quit & Trash your current version from the Elgato software, even when it's up to date and version 1.3!
-Install the latest version (today version 1.3). That's simply drag & drop from the image into the Programs folder.
-Launch the new downloaded version from the Elgato software (make sure your Elgato USB stick is attach to your Mac).
-Depending your hardware the Elgato software will launch as before. Or you will guided to the process.
-You can Quit the Elgato software now and you will see that the Elgato Turbo.264 will work again with RoadMovie.

It seems that RoadMovie was the only program that did not worked (on my hardware) with the Elgato software (version 1.3) which was updated with Elgato's build in software update!

The solution is plain simple ;). Dowload the most recent version from the Elgato Web site for your hardware (Turbo.264 & Turbo.264 HD)! Trash the Elgato software you use & install the version you just downloaded. That's it ;).

Many thanks to the 'Support Team" from RoadMovie! They are, as written before, great & very helpful!
I give 5 stars "+" now :-D.
