Outstanding response times from developers! I have tried other free and pay apps and so far this is my 'go to' app for converting videos to watch on my devices and stream to my tv.

I love this GUI utility for video conversions. Any chance you could add a *best for* Smugmug Preset to your list?

Fantastic client! The developers seem like nice guy who are very responsive. What more does a person need?

I use it mostly to do a pass-thru of mkv files to mp4 so I can play them on my PS3. Yay!

But isn't the pic/preview of the older version?

What more does a person need? Since you asked, Fried cheese sticks of course. With Marinara sauce -not ranch! That's disgusting.

@ Virtualruff

I never know if or not to use question Marks when proposing a rhetorical question. I guess it depends on How rhetorical is.

And I'm just glad my metabolism is still fast enough that I can enjoy eating Cheese Sticks. I'm sure in the future it'll be easier to just apply them directly to my highs.

And if you wanna do the sticks just right... Little Joe has a Tomato Sauce recipe that is yummy. (Search it in Amazon Books).

But all-in-all, and since we're asking - I'd rather have Whirled Peas.

I'm quite totally in the same mood as all other posters in here
But frankly one question still hangs in my mind

Since this GUI is not free while the FFMPEG binary is. why this developer Doesn't build its own version, since the free version lacks of many useful plugins that would made this a real application and not just the frontend for a free bynari?

just a guess

"In order to comply with applicable laws and licenses which may vary from country to country, no FFmpeg binary is included." http://www.iffmpeg.com/FFmpegInfo/index.html

I don't really understand your point, my FFMPEG binary has lots of functionality precompiled in, and irrespectively why would the source of a processing component change the "reality" of a piece of software? It is irrelevant who compiles the FFMPEG component.

A compiled FFmpeg binary (payed or free) cannot be distributed for several reasons and one reason is already correctly pointed out by Nontroppo.

Our main goal is to make a decent FFmpeg Frontend for Mac OS X that will last for a very long time without the risk of being taken offline and has also the benefit and flexibility to use your own latest compiled FFmpeg binaries.

Semplicita replied on 29 Nov 2013
I think I found the real reason it didn't work at first: I initially drag-and-dropped from a location that had a parent folder with a space character in the name. Eliminating the space resulted in intended behavior, and acceptance of the binary. :)

Please note that the latest Tessus builds are having issues with hard burning subtitles. If you need hardburning subtitles we recommend using the Osxexperts version instead.

Jpschuck had trouble on 27 Jun 2013
I tried the software and it looks very interesting and useful. But I encountered two problems when using the demo :

1/ In order to be able edit the FFmpeg command line before it starts to convert, iffmpeg's help file tells me to enable ‘Show FFmpeg commandline’ and ‘Enable FFmpeg commandline editing’ in the preferences. Ok, boxes are checked. But what am I supposed to do next ? I can't find any window or anything allowing me to edit the command line. Is this a paid only feature or am I missing something totally obvious ?

2/ I tried to convert an . mkv (H264 + AAC) video to .vob (MPEG2 video + PCM audio). Although I'm setting the audio track panel to PCM_S16LE , the output file gets an AC3 448 kb/s audio track. Is this a known bug related to the front end or to the binary itself ? (I'm using the FFmpeg 1.2 64bit binary for OSX 10.7 from OSX Experts).

Thanks for your reply

Proper installation of iFFmpeg is a MULTI-step process. For reference, here's a quick guide:

STEP 1: Download iFFmpeg from this MU listing, or directly from the developer's site.

STEP 2: Open iFFmpeg disc image, copy iFFmpeg to Applications, launch and quit iFFmpeg.

STEP 3: Download latest compiled FFmpeg binary from http://www.osxexperts.net/ffmpeg/ffmpegexperts.html (links are in the upper right below "Download FFmpeg binaries" heading). For more info:
http://www.iffmpeg.com/FFmpegInfo/ffmpeginfo.html

STEP 4: Install the FFmpeg binary by copying it into "User -> Library -> Application Support -> iFFmpeg" folder. For more info:
http://www.iffmpeg.com/HowTo/howto.html

STEP 5: Install iFFmpeg Presets (included on your earlier mounted iFFmpeg disc image) by dragging them onto the installed iFFmpeg application *OR* (if having difficulty with drag n drop installation, as I initially did) copy any/all desired .ifp Preset files into "User -> Library -> Application Support -> iFFmpeg" folder.

STEP 6: Enjoy.


As noted in my "STEP 5" above, I had some difficulty with the drag n drop installation of the FFmpeg binary AND iFFmpeg Preset files where I received several frustrating "Unsupported/unknown format or corrupted file" errors.

In any event, hopefully the above "manual install" guide will help SOMEONE out there! ;)

All the best!

Step 2 and Step 4 are not needed. You can drag the ffmpeg binary into iFFMpeg. It will take care of the ffmpeg binary.
If this did not work on your system, please send me a mail.

Dev-iffmpeg,

I did first try drag n dropping BOTH the FFmpeg binary AND the included iFFmpeg .ifp Preset files onto the iFFmpeg application…and I continuously received "Unsupported/unknown format or corrupted file" errors.

The "launch and quit iFFmpeg" portion of STEP 2 above was so that iFFmpeg would create it's Application Support folder. After doing so, after a careful read of your "HowTo" page I then copied the FFmpeg binary manually (when the drag n drop wouldn't work). After several efforts at drag n dropping the .ifp Preset files onto the iFFmpeg app (and receiving "Unsupported/unknown format or corrupted file" errors), without explanation it suddenly did work and therefore why I wrote "automatic" and "manual" install options for STEP 5.

Certainly, it appears as though there were some snags in the installation process…I would suggest at least taking a look at your drag n drop installation functionality AND I'd also suggest perhaps streamlining your web installation instructions and including a "ReadMe" file to the same effect on the disc image.

For what it's worth, I hope that helps! ;)

Just drag the ffmpeg binary alone into iFFmpeg should work fine. If it doesn't,please send a mail to info@iffmpeg.com

I'm having issues converting videos with the ATV1 using FFmpeg 1.0.1 64bit OSX from osxexperts and your 3.4.3 Release.

From Dumb Question Corner: I am running Mountain Lion and see that latest compiled FFMPEG versions are not shown as being compatible with anything beyond 10.7 (Lion). So I wonder if these are descriptions that need updating or if the current versions really are not compatible with Mountain Lion? TIA...

A OS X compiled FFmpeg binary will always work on any OS X version.
Just make sure you have a 64bit FFmpeg binary for ML.

I'm trying to convert a DVD .ISO (1941 - Steven Spielberg) to .M4V.
Does anyone know how to choose and convert individual video tracks from the .ISO? I want the main movie only. In my last try iFFmpeg converted all the video tracks (main movie, video extras, menus, etc) to a single .M4V file. :-(
Is there anyway I can choose only the main movie?
Thanks! :-)
