Permute for Mac3.6.9

15 September 2021

Easy-to-use, drag-and-drop video conversion.

What is Permute for Mac

Permute offers easy-to-use drag-and-drop video conversion.

Features:
  • Easy to Use - built from the ground up, Permute is a perfect example of what a Mac app should be. With a gorgeous interface and drag & drop simplicity no need for complicated options.
  • Insanely Fast - Permute was engineered to be incredibly fast. Let us take care of the hard stuff. Just select the video format you want and it’ll be done faster than you can say "hardware acceleration" - MP4 and HEVC presets now take advantage of your machine's hardware acceleration capabitlities, speeding up HEVC conversions more than 3 times over previous versions of Permute!
  • PDF Support - Permute 3 now includes support for stitching multiple images into a single PDF.
  • Everything Included - It doesn’t matter if you’re converting home movies or processing images. Permute can do it all. We support nearly every format and have plenty of device presets to choose from.
  • Looks Amazing - Whether you use dark mode or not, Permute will look amazing. Taking advantage of the modern technologies, Permute will even change its icon in dark mode.
  • Keep the Schedule - Video re-encoding is quite demanding on computer resources. This is why you can now schedule Permute to convert videos e.g. at night when you're not using your computer.
  • And so much more! - There are so many other great features in Permute - adjust volume of an audio file or an audio track in a video. Batch-resize, rotate and flip images and videos. And more!

I wonder why the developer chose such an interface. Horrible to work with and look at. Everything has translucency which makes it difficult to read. Even when you turn off the translucency, it remains very unclear. As for the end quality, it leaves much to be desired for most presets. For example, the HEVC preset gives overly large files of mediocre quality. While the main purpose of HEVC is to provide high quality with small files sizes. Maybe because the default bitrates are the same for all video codecs? I also found errors when converting AAC files. You can hear random peaks/crackles sometimes which is annoying. Conclusion: It is strange that the developer chose this kind of interface. It is counter-productive, frustrating and on top of that the end results are not very good either. There are much better alternatives on the market! For example Roxio converter is a whole lot better.

This really has a very unclear GUI. It's just click and see if it's what you expect. The icons are not only unclear but way too small. Results are mediocre and Handbreak does a whole lot better (and for free). I really can't recommend this app.

Works great. Simple and effective. HEVC Encoding is a bit on the slow side as compared to say Handbrake but it does the job. Noticing more websites are moving to WebP and it does a good job with static files but doesn't handle WebP animated files. I'd love to see Permute 4 start supporting new CODEC like AVIF.

App re-converts MP4 files that won't play so that they work, but when I import an .srt (subtitle) file, they NEVER convert. But at least I can watch the MP4 video in a foreign language that I can't understand. Awesome!

My computer said that it would cause damage and that I should uninstall it. don't know if that was a hoax but did so just in case. Both of my computers did the same thing right after the latest OS update Catalina 10.15.6

The app has been doing a great job for me> Fast and easy convertion, transcoding with Passthrough, extraction of the audio track, etc. The app relies heavily on videotoolbox, which explains the amazing speed. It has less granularity then ffmpeg though so the result isn’t as “compact” as what you could get tweaking the ffmpeg options, but it sure is an easy to use super efficient converter.

Well, version 2.X for the most part was great. Transcoded fast, and more often than not well. I pretty much only go from .TS files to .MP4 and I've done 5-6 with the new version 3 - first 3.0.1 all they way up to 3.0.4 and all of them resulted in nothing but an hour and a half black screen with no sound. Why 3 stars? I'm sure they'll get it right, but it's incredibly frustrating. Back to Handbrake for the time being, even though it takes like 20 times longer.

Some findings with this new version. - Every preset resulted in stuttering playback!!! All the converted movies stutter on several occasions. - Only the very high quality settings do produce some sort of good results. There appears to be no possibility for an average quality with acceptable file sizes and good quality. Even the free Handbrake does a much better job. - If the source is matroska or mpeg2ts, the result is always plagued with audio lagging problems. Sometimes up to 1 second. - Subtitles support is not working, or at least not on my system. they are simply ignored. - Enabling hardware accelerated encoded results in files with awful quality, even at high settings. It also crashed the app 3 times. It not usable in this version. - It only support basic codecs both audio and video. - Video and audio metadata is not copied, including tags. - The GUI is counter productive. it's clicking from here to there to do things. - Adding more then 50 files is hogging the GUI too. The previous GUI was way better and actually workable. This is a huge step back. For me it was money thrown away. I should have kept using Handbrake.

I love the app, other than the one time where my file took forever to convert, this has worked flawlessly.

Simplistic video converter suffering from delivering bad quality, even at high settings. The demo does reveal audio synchronization problems. Not sure this is a demo feature or bug.
