Thanks for the heads-up! Unfortunately, I'm unable to locate a working link, so I've marked the listing as discontinued.

This app is perfect and does what I need. It converts the DTS tracks to AC3 in my HD MKV movies. Just one question, is it possible to update the ffmpeg binary to newer versions or did you specially make it just for remux?

It does the job : the possibility to open a video file in QuickTime. Thank-you very much :-)

The UI is a bit cryptic but you can use it. Unfortunately, the app created a file that QuickTIme player won't play, by converting an MPEG-4 AVI file into an MP4 file.

In QT Player under Lion, the resulting file had no audio, and appeared to be playing only every third frame or so (although the net playback speed appeared to be correct).

The app detected the contents of the AVI file as MPEG-4 video at 23.97 FPS and two channels of MP3 audio at 128 kbps. The resulting MP4 video file has the same characteristics, according to both QT Player and VLC.

But VLC plays the file correctly.

Excellent tool: Small and to the point. Does everything you expect it to.

I am sometimes facing some issues when trying to perform some exotic conversions (like take a FLV and convert it to TS), so it woul dbe nice if we could re-encode the video stream in addition to audio.

Can't properly use with "Open with". App launches but not with selected file(s).

On a batch conversion it ruined the original files for all but the last file which it did convert.

There should be preferences to set defaults. For example, why would I want to convert an .MKV to a .MKV as default?

But you did notice the warning in red?

Note: There is a warning, in red as the developer points out, if you leave the settings to convert to the same format that you will overwrite. A preference setting to set a default output format would be a really good idea.

you can edit the plist to rearrange the extension order till I add some prefs.

Really nice App. But my Problem is, that the conversation from mts (Panasonic Videocamera file) to mp4 is working with the meta informations (That is important), but when I import this files to Final Cut Pro X, the files are not working. some Pictures from the video are visible but the most is black or green Screen. The sound is working fine.

That is happening in v 1.2 and 1.1.7.
My system is a iCore 7 with osx 10.9.
Any ideas ?

Could be some broken frames which get dropped, resulting in the video problems.

Remux fails when attempting to convert .f4v files created with Wirecast.

The error message is: "FFmpeg reported an error: Expected number for copytb but found -map"

This appears to be a known problem in earlier versions of FFmpeg but is shown as "fixed" in the FFmpeg bug tracker.

Still experiencing subtitles problems. Remuxing a file that contains subtitles will result in a file with subtitles that stay visible forever until next subtitles appear.

It keeps locking up after dragging a mp4 onto the app. I cannot get this working at all.

Any help?

- Only 10% of the M2TS files i have could be muxed back to MKV or to another container (they were originally muxed from MKV with TSmuxer). I can't find any reason why.

- There is a bug in the batch window. When deleting or moving an item, it seems to mess up the list very badly.

- OSX screensaver (or standby) seems to kill the app.

- Muxing a bluray sub to MKV seems to affect the ETA since it seems ffmpeg takes much longer (extra demuxing?).

- MKV muxed into MP4 don't work in QuickTime but do work in VLC.

- Some MKV files have audio problems (loud beep) after being muxed. Muxed first to a new MKV container seems to fix the problem.

Tried to convert .mp4 files to .mkv. My player Dune BD Prime 3.0 does play both, but staring time for .mp4 is far longer, though. So, after transforming the container my player didn't play video strim at all. Just audio. But my Mac played converted video file without any problem.
I just wondering – is that converter problem or Dune player?

My WDTV, which can't downmix DTS, now plays the MKVs with the DTS > AC3 converted audiotrack (THANKS!!!)... but for some reason the audio is only coming out of my right speaker on my HiFi. Playing the same MKV with VLC is fine. Other MKVs, which were not converted with remux, play fin in full stereo on my WDTV + HiFi.

Thanks for your efforts so far!

You may need to upgrade to 1.1.6. AAC5.1 works fine now probably because the guys at FFmpeg fixed the ch mapping issue.
