This program works great. However, you must get the updated version: 2.4.1.1

The link above is an older version with bugs. Go to their website and download the latest.

It's very stable after the update, and it delivers the good, as promised. The quality of the video outcome depends directly from the original's quality, and it does a fairly nice job converting, if you decide so. The conversion choices are also good, but I would suggest the inclusion of aspect ratio settings, besides the raw pixel value. Other than those minutiae, I'm quite pleased with this app.

Youtube videos download fine but anything else is a nightmare.
Constantly giving errors on trying to download from Google video.
Still waiting for CosmoPod to update to Lion then I can delete this crap.

@ Xesc: How does it come that this version (2.4.1 Intel) is using 4 cores @ 100% all the time?
When I look with ActivityMonitor the app takes 400% CPU from my Intel Core i7. And that's when it's doing nothing! After a few minutes my fans are blowing like hell.
Best regards, Leppe.

Oh yeah, I've also noticed that I can't Quit the app once and a while.
Happens mostly when the CPU load is already a couple minutes very high.

I've recently bought my first Intel Mac (Core i7) and I'm very happy with this program.
Version 2.4 is very mature and still free! Many thanks to the developer.

Before my first Intel Mac I was able to build a couple of PPC builds. I started with almost no knowledge... Thanks to the developer for the Source Code!

At this moment I've a first beta of a Universal build (PPC/Intel) version. Also version 2.4 and able to auto update plugins. The ffmpeg I've build (universal) is the first one that is working very good on my hardware and in Rosetta (PPC) and my builds. For the first time the program converts to any format (avi, wmv, mov, mp4, etc.) on both architectures and on Mac OS X 10.5 & 10.6 (in theory the app should also have to work in 10.4.11).

I still have a few PPC beta testers from my first build, which was rather unstable, but I could use some more feedback from PPC hardware. I've put a lot of my free time in this program, so that PPC users could also enjoy this great program! I'm planning to support PPC versions untill it's unpossible because of various reasons... This could even be the last version! I hope not, but it could be. Never the less I'll try to support the last version and even make some changes for PPC.

It's all I can do for the PPC community... Even when I was able to buy a new Mac I'm still aware that there are many PPC users for this program.

If you ever want to donate, you have to donate to the original developer! It's his code, Open Source, that I've change a bit so it would run on PPC also. I'm doing this for FREE!!!

If you're interested in the Universal build of version 2.4 send me a message and I'll send you a link. Thanks in advance for helping out PPC users who are interested in this great free program. With regards.

doktermac@gmail.com

@Developer: The ReadMe file in the source code about how to compile does not work! That's for Intel as well as PPC... Send me a message if you are interested in solving this issue.

PS: Sorry in advance for the typos in this message :).

Well, it is better to download video with Safari
Window -> Activity: Then you pick HD, best quality.
As to converting to another format, yes it does it,
but... with horrible quality. I'll stick with Safari.

Hi PPC users.
I've managed to compile a PPC version!

I've downloaded the latest source and compiled it on my good old PM G5.
I'm sure this app will run on any G4 and even a G3 (but that is something I need to test). The PPC version is very CPU friendly and the source is also very clean and well written!

Anyone who is interested in this version, let me know and I'll put it online or I'll send to you.
The diskimage is only 1,5Mb, so it's easy to e_mail or to upload this program to my personal or any server.

Interested? Mail to doktermac@gmail.com !!!

With kind regards.

PS: Version is 2.1, plugins installed: 58, languages supported: 14, AutoUpdate is working ;-).

I wonder why this version is 10+Mb?
My build, in a automated dmg file is only 1,5Mb big?

When I check the Intel version (Get Info) the app itself is much smaller.

Leppe replied on 08 Jul 2009
I've downloaded the Intel vesion, here from MacUpdate, and both apps Intel & PPC have almost the same size. I can't see or find any Frameworks on both dmg files?

As far I can see you only need to drag & drop the app in the Application folder, both Intel & PPC Builds. No extra frameworks for installation...

The only thing I can think is that the Intel version is using some standard dmg size... While the PPC version dmg file is made with the Terminal...

Maybe it's a script error? Or different build settings in Qt?
Anyway, it's much bigger and untill I can't investigate why it's guessing...

Regards.

BTW: The PPC version works very well untill now! I have no issues at all! The code must be very well written!!!

btw the frameworks I'm talking about are in the app-bundle (the app I download from MacUpdate). The question is: why has the developer them included in his distribution? Have fun finding the answer :)

Dokter_mac replied on 08 Jul 2009
The weird thing is that there are no Framworks inside the app ;).
Only Plugins, Language files, Resources, a Mac OS folder with the UNIX file, etc.
But no frameworks...

This is found in the app I downloaded from here:
App-Bundle:Contents:Frameworks:
QtCore.framework
QtGui.framework
QtNetwork.framework
QtScript.framework

... I assume your executable is working on every machine which has QTKit installed...?

Dokter_mac replied on 08 Jul 2009
You have a very good point!
I need those PPC native frameworks if I wan't to see this app running on other PPC Macs where Qt is not installed...

I'm going to contact the developer and see if he can help me. Qt is PPC compatible and the FrameWorks are installed in my Library (that's why this app works on my hardware), but they need to be inside the program as you say! Because if not, the app will not launch!!!

BTW: I just received a log file from someone that proofs your theory ;).

Thanks a lot for your help!!!

Greets & kind regards.

You are welcome. Also thanks to you for your effort. I hope it goes well. btw, in the 'how to compile.txt' is something mentioned about a FRAMEWORKS version build (OSXonly).

TROUBLE
Sometimes, the downloaded files are missing. Strange. It downloads and shows "Completed" but the file is gone. A very disturbing user experience.

NOTES
After the application starts, the main window's default focus is in the "Downloads Directory:" text-field. If you press accidentally a key that path is changed.

I figured this out: if a server-dependent download-error occurs it stops downloading and shows the (wrong) message "Completed". It never completed but for some reason it couldn't proceed with the download and for some reason this situation is not properly handled by the app.
