What is ffWorks for Mac

ffWorks, focused on simplicity, brings a fresh approach to the use of FFmpeg, allowing you to create ultra-high-quality movies without the need to write a single line of code on the command-line.

  • High Quality and Control - Convert and processes many media files with high level quality using FFmpeg with no knowledge. Advanced users are not left out in the cold with lots of options to work with.
  • Media Formats - Support for many codecs and containers like MPEG4, H264, H265 HEVC, Matroska, PRORES, DNxHD, DVVideo, MPEG TS, MPEG PS, XAVS, FLV, Theora, AVI, OGG, VP8 and VP9 (.webm), Animated GIF, VOB, MXF, GFX, and many more.
  • Merging Media Files - Stitch unlimited files to one file using either of two methods: concat pass-thru (blistering fast) and Complex Filter.
  • Subtitles Support - Both hard-burned and soft subtitles are supported (external or embedded).
  • Presets - A lot of presets are included by default: iPod, iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, PS4, Xbox One, Wii-U, Android, YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, and many more.
  • Encode Multiple Files at Once - Batch-encode up to 8 files at the same time.
Features
  • 300+ advanced options - Convert with control and power
  • 40+ video filters - Add watermark, timecode rendering, padding and cropping, rotation, video stabilisation, sharpening, blurring, deinterlacing, and much more.
  • Export movies to images - Support for .png, .bmp, and .jpg
  • Monitor output - Keep track of all FFmpeg output for debug errors.
  • Watch folder - Drag-and-drop a media file in your watch folder, and ff·Works will automatically encode it.
  • User presets - Make and manage your own user presets.
  • 4K and 5K support - Create UltraHQ movies.
  • Audio filters - Adjust volume, fade in/out, earwax, audio tempo, Bauer stereo, merging, channel mapping, etc.
  • Images-to-movies - Convert .png, .bmp, or .jpg images to any movie format.
  • Trimming movies - Cut start and endings with ease.
  • Chapter editing - Add chapters with ease for MP4, MOV, and MKV formats.
  • Unlimited streams - Add as many audio streams, subtitles, video, and audio filters.

Just to mention: I had a little problem converting a VP8 video to HEVC with hardware accelerated encoding. The developer answered very quickly and solved the problem for me and updated the app the next day. Unbelievable support! Kudos!

I bought a Mac Mini M1 last week and the first thing I did was check all my favorite apps to see if they are available in native AS. So also ffWorks. And I was pleasantly surprised that both ffWorks and FFmpeg are available for native Apple Silicon making it future proof. Thanks for keeping this app up to date. ffWorks is really indispensable for me! Kudos

By far the best media converter on the market. Is very powerful but still easy to operate.

ff-mpeg is one of the best encoders around and FF-Works adds the user interface that makes it simple to use while still being able to get to the power user stuff if you need to. It's rapidly become my go-to app for all my transcoding.

If there is one tool I can't miss it is this. A very flexible encoding application, powered by ffmpeg, that makes all other free and payed converters obsolete. The regular updates are very welcome and indicate that the makers take great care to keep improving it every single time. The ridiculously low price is fully worth it. Top application.

I'm in agreement... ffWorks is a great app. I'd like to create 8-channel E-AC3 (Dolby Digital Plus) files to play on an Apple TV. However, the resulting files have only 6 channels. I wonder if its a FFmpeg issue.

Excellent app. Version 1.4 introduced a problem with trimming (e.g. preview not working as it should). Immediately solved within one day with release of version 1.4.1.

I've been using this for a very long time and it's still by far the best program in its class. Gets updated very regularly with new features too. FFworks is a really great program for a low price that you should definitely have and use.

I use this for all kinds of things like converting for my iPad with subtitle rendering, reducing movies without loss of quality, making time-lapse movies and much more. You really get a lot for the low price. Great product.
