remux 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

Very nice app with easy to use interface. Did exactly what I wanted. I found that mp4 videos downloaded using the Skyload extension to Chrome couldn't be opened with Quick Look (space bar). I just needed to remux the files, which this app did perfectly. If I could ask for a little additional functionality... I would like to select all mp4 files in the tableview and tell remux to output in the same mp4 format. Currently only the last file is changed from mkv to mp4. Minor issue, but time consuming.

It makes it easy to eliminate unwanted components. To add individual streams, use Import.

Simple, straightforward, mostly intuitive. Can even convert .aa audiobook files to m4a which can be played on Quicktime Player and various MP3 players.

This app is great, but when unchecking an audio track it's still added to the converted clip.

The app look great, but I have a problem with MKV files that have subtitles in it. If i change format to mp4/m4v, subs are unselected from the list. Then if I select even one subtitles track and try to convert, I get and error. Is there anything that one can do to convert file without losing embedded subtitles? My other app to change MKV into MP4/M4V (mkv2m4v.app) is also wonky when it comes to subtitles - even if it get them, then in Apple TV.app is see only half of the lines. It’s somewhat annoying that I have to search for subs in .srt format and add them later manually via Subler even when I start from a file that have them already :D

Excellent app! Sorry if this seems silly, but is it possible to have MKV to MP4 be converted and retain the audio? I'm not too techy so I don't know how to go around that

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! :)

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?

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

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.

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!

Martin! You are my hero! I just spent $4000AU on my tv and sound system and I couldn't play DTS files! After 3 days of studying and looking online I found your software. Thank you sooooo much!

This app has so far been great as it's the best for re-encoding mp4 files. However, the only issue I have is alot of the files have "und" for the language on audio files. I would like if there was a way to change this to the correct langauge. Can you add this?

I used this app with no problems for the last 2 years or more, remuxing m2ts to mkv. Now all of a sudden, it fails all attempts to remux; I tried moving the destination folder to another location than the source folder, but to no avail .... Heeeeelp :-(
