It's incredibly easy to use and comes pretty much preconfigured. Plus, it's very fast at converting between video formats compared to Handbreak.

Great app! I got it for free through MacHeist, and I love it! Such an easy way to convert videos from any format without having to mess with any tricky settings.

Thanks!!

WARNING: this update removes Snow Leopard compatibility!

Their installer overwrites 1.3.11, making Permute unusable on 10.6.8 (which I and many photographers I know are still running given the loss of Rosetta and incompatibilities of Lion(s)).

Not only does their installer not check and disallow installation under Snow Leopard, but also there is no download link for 1.3.11 on their website.

Emails to tech support have as yet to be answered.

Ugh. Random violence.

I keep getting 1.3.8 from the download link, not the latest version, and even that won’t run on my MBPro with 10.7.4 installed.

This suffer from bad audio sync problems on every movie I converted to the iPhone preset.
The Apple TV3 preset is not working!! The encoded movie had a wrong aspect ratio resulting in funny heads.

The developers calls it a 'Dead sexy interface', well 'Dead' it is already and moved it to the trashcan. Plain rubbish and not worth your hard earned dollars.

The old Evom is free and always creates perfectly playable movies.

Both the link above and the one on the developer’s website still yield v. 1.3.8 instead of 1.3.10. This is getting ridiculous.

Just yesterday I discovered that the last version of Permute (1.3.8) still has some serious and confusing problems:

1. After successfully stitching together 6 WMV files (with VC-1 video & 64 Kbps WMA audio) to a single new WMV file (though the stitched file somehow ended up with 31.9 Kbps WMA), it would never again stitch together those same 6 files no matter what preset I used (multiple attempts with and without modifications using each of the following presets failed, despite that it worked fine the first time: WMV, MKV, Remux to both .mkv & .mov and Remux with Audio Conversion to both .mkv & .mov).

2. Using the Remux with Audio Conversion preset (to .mov & AC-3) on the same 6 WMV files mentioned above failed repeatedly, but finally yielded working files — with AAC audio! After fixing permissions and repairing my startup disk with Disk Utility and then rebuilding and replacing the root directory with DiskWarrior 4.4, I repeated these tests a second time to confirm that Permute was indeed creating AAC audio streams despite being set to make AC-3 streams (though it did remux the WMV’s VC-1 video streams correctly into the .mov containers).

3. Using the newly remuxed .mov files from #2 above (the ones that Permute made with VC-1 video and AAC audio despite being set to make AC-3 audio), I then used Permute’s WMV preset (set to copy both streams) — because every other preset threw errors — and again the “Stitch video files together” setting to make one big file, which unbelievably yielded a .wmv with MPEG-2 video and WMA v. 2 audio!!!

Later, using completely different .avi and .mkv source files, similarly bizarre results were obtained.

Attempts to stitch, remux and remux/audio convert the same above-mentioned source files using the $10 iFFmpeg 3.0.2 (using the ffmpeg 0.102 64-bit binary) each worked as expected with no anomalous/unexpected audio or video stream bitrates/formats or FFmpeg errors and all resulting files played flawlessly, so Permute’s problems are clearly not FFmpeg’s fault.

Having paid for Permute a long time ago, I have tested each new version only to discover that it’s getting more and more FUBAR. Nevertheless, I’ll try this new version (1.3.10) and hope for the best

[All conversions were performed on a Core2Duo 2.4 GHz Unibody MacBook Pro with 4 GB of RAM running OS 10.6.8. Selected Permute 1.3.8 conversion attempts using the same source files were again performed on a Core2Duo 2.16 GHz iMac with 3 GB of RAM also running OS 10.6.8 with equally puzzling results.]

Any comments about this or the previous 4 versions? Have any of the problems been solved?

Started off as a promising piece of software. It was meant to combine simplicity, speed and customisation. Simple? Yes. Fast? Not top of the class. Customisation? Limited options with buggy results. Could be amazing though.
