This app was really incredible, I cannot believe they close it cause PayPal.
Ok, P.P. is sucking more money (having personal experience too), but there
are other systems, like MoneyBookers, which is far better then P.P.

Btw,I really hope the developer wil be back.

Tell me about it. Someone paid me via PayPal and charged me over $6 on a $200 invoice. What the hell! It's a same this is no longer being developed. This was my favorite converter out of them all.

iVideo Converter is currently unavailable. The developer has requested that MacUpdate no longer link to iVideo Converter, as changes in PayPal fees have made the app less viable to develop so it can no longer be purchased. This situation might change in the future, but no solution is expected short-term.

Oh, this is utterly ridiculous. Isn't there SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE who can produce a viable replacement for VisualHub?

I try to support lots of indie developers, but I feel like 2009 was a particularly BAD year for getting burned by devs shutting down shortly after taking my money.

VERY disappointed.

I agree that it has been a bad year for transcoders. However, if you haven't read the horror stories, PayPal has recently taken their legacy of ripping people off and elevated it to a whole new level of abusing their customers. eBay's trustworthiness is in freefall in general, and my personal opinion is that currently it is very risky (almost dangerous) to use any of their products/services. My point is that I wouldn't blame the dev in this case, because PayPal probably really did do something awful.

Although I agree PayPal is a rip-off and getting worse, using this as an excuse not to sell or continue development of software is very lame indeed!!

If required find an alternative payment processor, there are many, and if necessary increase the price slightly to compensate for the increased costs.

Also, for those people who have just purchased the software you have at the very least a moral responsibility to continue offering those users support for a reasonable period of time.

All in all I think the developer has used this excuse primarily to stop development, they have even disabled the home page which is shocking, leaving people in the dark without so much as a message on there stating what is happening. You can still access the other pages on the site by manually typing the address in, such as features, contact etc.. but most people will not realise this or know how to do it.

Very disappointed with the developer!!!!

Yes, the developer is so friendly that they disabled the homepage to avoid communicating with people and users, most people will not know how to find their email, assuming it is even working still!!

For what its worth their contacts page is: http://www.ivideoconverter.net/contacts.html

Does anyone know where to find the email link to the developer if you have not already purchased the software? I would like to contact him and arrange some other way to pay for the software. Its very difficult to find another stable program that does the conversion so easily.

1- iPhone preset: If you change default quality from “Preset”, Auto channel selection turns on. Why?
2- Preferences: “Keep Original” As Resolution Default; what's that for? Aspect ratio? If so, isn't working. I think that Aspect Ration MUST BE always as the original. Almost EVERY converted movie are stretched wrong!

Anyway... A great piece of sotfware! ;-)

Still very poor audio conversion from a 5.1 source. No stereo transcoding and very low sound quality. (VisualHub and HandBrake still convert a .mkv 5.1 to iPhone preset perfectly)

I have ask the dev to raise the audio sample bitrate for 5.1 by default.
By default this is only 128kbits. If you set this to 256kbits or higher the quality is perfect.
For now you have to do this manually.

Mixdown to stereo is possible but you have to disable Auto select channels. Then choose stereo or mono.
I do this all the time when converting to my iPhone.

The Gui is better than handbrake ... thanks to DRAG n DROP !

But hey where is the great X264 (if h264 means x264 when i choose mp4 export, it's really important to inform the user)?
But hey where is the fabulous core HE AAC (now completely supported by snow) ?


Thank you

From the VideoLAN website: "x264 is a free library for encoding H264/AVC video streams." As Wikipedia explains, "H.264/MPEG-4 AVC is a standard for video compression." So, yes, x264 in HandBrake and H.264 in iVideoConverter mean the same thing (and AVC is another name for H.264). Make sense?

A cat is a cat.
A cat is an animal.
But, hey, an animal isn't a cat !
Animal is just a standard like H264.

x264 is H264 but h264 isn't x264 !

I'm talking about x264 specific Codec, not the h264 standard.

Terminology is specific on almost all mac software, when we can read H264, it means Apple H264, not x264.

As is usual with engineers their nomenclature and communication is appalling.

All the codecs and standards have multiple names, in some cases of exactly the same thing, but to rule out easy comprehension, sometimes not.

Tvalleau replied on 04 Dec 2009
except that movies created with x264 are perfectly readable by Apple's (and, AFAIK everyone else's) H.264. X265 just does a better/faster job on the -ENcoding- side. You do not need the x264 plugin to play the resulting files.

In VisualHub, there was a DVD setting that created a .ISO file which could easily be burned to DVD (by Roxio's Toast, for instance.) That setting in VisualHub also allowed me to choose NTSC or PAL formatting for the DVD I was authoring.

Is there a comparable setting in iVideo Converter that allows me to drop in a video file and convert it to a .ISO file for easy burning to DVD?

If not, why not? And what other video converter (besides VisualHub) offers .ISO creation?

Thank you for your help! MacUpdate RULES.

Follow up: The developer was super fast responding to my e-mail, answering my questions and even putting one of my suggestions on tap for a future update. iVC doesn't have the specific (VisualHub replicating) functionality I was looking for, but I bought a license and I'm very impressed with both the software and the developer so far. Highly Recommended!!!

I figured that out. I just hate having to go back every time I launch the program to set the destination folder. If not a preference than maybe it remembers from the last time you encoded a file. Still though, great program. It's easy to use and the quality is better than handbrake... or at least with the default presents.
