Remux/recode video files.

Overview

Based on the FFmpeg tool, remux is a straightforward macOS application that enables you to convert media files into popular file formats, while packing batch processing capabilities. You can use the remux app to quickly create MKV, MP4, M4V, AVI, TS, or VOB media files.

Uncomplicated media converter featuring a well organized user interface

Finding your way around the remux application is quite easy because the utility is sporting a fairly intuitive workflow: within the app’s main window you must decide if you want to process a single file, or you need to convert more than one item. Once the items that will be processed are imported, in the remux main window you can view their type, the used codec, and their language.

Simply select the output file format from the appropriate drop down menu, and press the "Go" or "Start" button to launch the process. You also have the possibility to re-encode the data by using one of the supported codecs.

Reduce the conversion time by taking advantage of the batch processing capabilities

Within the remux "Batch processing" tab you have the option to use a different output file format for each file, even if the items will be converted at the same time.

The same area enables you to change the output folder, but note that remux does not provide support for sending the converted files to different directories.

Streamlined media conversion utility developed on the FFmpeg project

remux proposes a minimalist and highly intuitive user interface in which you can take advantage of the FFmpeg tool in order to convert media files to other popular file formats and make them available on multiple devices.

All in all, the remux app is quite easy to use, can handle more than one file at the same time, and is able to get the job done without requiring too much user interaction.

Features:
  • Change container without re-encoding
  • Select, rearrange, and duplicate tracks
  • Convert DTS to AC3/AAC for AppleTV or PS3, for example

What's new in remux

Version 1.4:
  • Support for HEVC
  • Updated FFmpeg to 3.4.2
  • Added new aac_at presets which use the Apple AAC encoder (you may need delete the plist file to see them)
  • Added editing the language on audio and subtitle tracks

I cannot figure out how to add a video elementary stream and an audio elementary stream, then mux them as an MP4. If it cannot do that, it is NOT a muxer, a remuxer, or anything else of much value and should change its name.

Martin, thank you! This app is awesome. I've been trying to find a way to quickly (and easily!) remux for years. The batch function is a massive time saver. If I had to make a couple of recommendations, I would: - Make the window sizeable so you can easily see long file names. - Have the ability to set a default format (MP4 for me). I am certainly not complaining, though... I'm very grateful for your hard work! :)

You can rearrange the order of the formats by editing the plist. Thought about adding preferences but using a plist editor does the job also. Need to look how much code/GUI editing it takes to make the windows resizable or if it's just a checkbox in Xcode.

For a quick support you could edit the plist and add webm under formats there. Not sure if there are any strings attached on what codecs are allowed inside webm files, so you may get errors on some codecs.

Martin, this app is great! Its enabled me to get perfect sound through my SONOS playbar, something I've been struggling with due to its lack of DTS support. One question for you, is there any way this app could be ported to run directly on my Synology NAS?

I don't know if there is a frontend for ffmpeg on the Synology OS already.
If not, you could learn to use ffmpeg on the command line ;)

Fantastic app - the fastest I've used! Just wanted to check whether there was anyway to set the deafult file format you want to convert to when drag and dropping files into batch processing? Currently it appears i have to manually set the file format for each file after i import it. Cheers

Under the files window there's a popup for setting the container for all files in the batch. You can override that one by choosing another in the track window below.
You can also copy the settings you are making to all other files tracks by holding down alt while doing them. But be aware there is no checking if they make sense for the other files. They are just copied.

Some of the usage is explained in the ReadMe, haven't added it all to the tooltips.

1.4beta worked great for me, but 1.4 is missing the entire top half of the app when using batch mode. Literally, where the file list would be is empty and a big grey area. Going back to 1.4beta and all is well. I tried removing all prefs and files too.

There seems to be a problem with the english batch processing window on 10.13.4 (on 10.8 it works ok), german one works fine.
Need to look into it.

This is an incredibly useful took and supremely fast compared to re-encoding with Handbrake or similar without increasing the file size. The one fallback is that if you're converting .mkv to .mp4 and use iTunes, most likely due to video formatting of .mkv the videos will not play in iTunes/Home Sharing. Not a big issue for me as I've stepped away from that and use primarily Plex and VLC (as you should too). Just wanted to make it known. I realize Plex and VLC will work seamlessly with .mkv files, I am just neurotic and want them all .mp4 for some reason. Also, batch processing is very hit or miss. Batch processing will fail if a .mkv file has subs, batch will fail the file every time. All in all, a very fast, solid app. Well done.

Hi, Martin. Thank your for your great app. I only have one question (request?): I want to convert from DTS 5.1 to AAC 5.1, but the only option I can see in the menu is AAC 6ch 128k. While I understand that 128k can be okay for a stereo track, it's way too low for a 5.1 track: if 128k is the minimum acceptable for 2 channels, it should be at least 384k (128k x 3) for 6 channels. Or maybe you could offer the possibility to chose from different bitrates, like MKVtools does (offering 10 different bitrates from 128k to 640k). Thank you for your great work!

That's a simple oversight on my part while doing the presets.
As a quick fix you could edit the presets in the preferences plist file to your liking
I just corrected it in the source, but I don't know if or when I release another version.

Hi Martin! thanks for the update! Just 2 demands: - I can't seem to find a website of yours, got none? - hence the second question ;-) : What's the last version to run on PPC 10.4? Got a 1.1.6 in my archive, just wanna know if I keep it, just in case...

Sorry, no web page now. I'm hosting it on Google Drive right now, but only current versions.
Versions 1.0-1.3.2 are all compiled against the 10.5 SDK, PPC included.
Not sure if they run on 10.4, maybe you need to edit the min version in the info.plist …

Thank you!
So, for the sake of science, I've just tested 1.1.6, 1.3.1 and 1.3.2 and none of them work on PPC 10.4, even editing the min version in the info.plist. Now we know. :-)

Current equipment should be able to play DTS though, sounds like you are playing directly on the TV media player or use optical for the audio.
