    I've been using a paid version of VidConvert for some time now and it has worked well. However, recently it kept asking me to reinstall ffmpeg. No matter what I did, it kept asking. Now it does not work at all. After installing ffmpeg according to instructions, it refuses to convert but instead asks again for me to install a conversion engine. Maybe a problem with Sierra? I can't find anything online how to fix it so I had to use Terminal to convert something with ffmpeg. Would have been 4 or 5 stars before but now I can only give 3 for old time's sake.

    Works good and fast, although I have not compared to other similar software. Only complaint is getting message that Conversion Engine outdated, but the latest Conversion Engine seems to have not been updated, so I keep getting the message to update, even though I have the latest Conversion Engine

    Very basic converter with mixed results. Converted movies sometimes have choppy playback and audio gets out of sync. Compared to the free Handbrake, file sizes are also cumbersome with this converter. In general the file size is way to big for the same quality achieved with Handbrake. I see no reason to pay for something crippled and delivering poor quality or too big files.

    I download movie files and then convert them to TS files to burn as a DVD to be played on our DVD/TV player. My brother requires those movie files to show subtitles because in addition to some hearing loss he claims and i sometimes agree many actors today mumble their words or at times conversations take place off screen. Hope this version of VidConvert fixes a bug that bugs me. For some technical reason this app does not capture subtitles that are embedded in the file or even better allow adding subtitles which other video converting apps allow. However, I still rate this app a high five when i have to convert movie files to DVD that have no subtitles available at the time..

    i love this app, it's simple, and works. (and it works with audio to), i like handbrake but it not do audio, i like other free app (it do audio to) but i can't update the engine as easy as vidconvert. I get mail if vidconvert on discount on mac app store, so i just bought it without thinking, (even after that i realised small difference to non mac App Store (it can't convert .vod and no auto safe to source folder) but that not a problem for me. Conversion run smoothly , i did 9 movie conversion, fast enough , and the result is good, i tried 1 audio conversion without problem at all. Just try it, i won't disappoint you.

    Basic converter that works if you need to convert to idevices. I did have problems when adding movie files with odd characters in the filename. That always creates files with no content. Free this would be good but paying $8 is too much. I would suggest using Handbrake.

    I just wanted to say that I like this application a lot but the one thing it needs is a setting to keep the specs for the original file (i.e. dimensions, bit rate, frame rate, etc.). It's kind of a pain to have to add all of that information manually, particularly if you want to convert a batch of files. Maybe there's an easier way to do this. If there is, please tell me!

    I feel lucky to have this app. It has a nice clean interface. It works well. And the options are very useful. I've never used the advanced options but I am sure they are very useful for those who need them. This is my single go-to app for converting anything. Other apps convert either video or audio—but this does it all. Thanks for a solid app Reggie!

    Hi this is Reggie the developer of VidConvert. Just a heads-up that Version 1.5 is out and fully Mavericks compatible (backwards compatible with Lion/Mountain Lion). Support for older versions has been dropped in order to more easily bring advancements to users with newer OS versions (previous versions however can still be downloaded via my site or the link above). For any questions, etc. just head on over to my site (reggieashworth.com) and email me thanks!

    Just purchased this for the ridiculously low price of £2.47 GBP, at this price it was worth a gamble I thought. Have to say that up to now, so far so good, just encoded a couple of short flash movies as fast as lightning and now encoding a ripped Blu-Ray, (35.89Gb) for which the app is showing a projected time of 1hr:5min, this same file took over 4hrs using Handbrake! Also looking at the preview, quality looks really good, will come back and give this a proper rating after some more testing, but it's looking good!

    Didn't know about this converter. I wasn't impressed by the ui but looks can be deceiving so I gave it a shot. The first .mkv file I dragged into Vidconvert result in the much hated spinning beach ball for seconds and then shows in the list. Selected to convert to iPhone Retina. Got the message it only encodes 3 minutes which is fine for testing purposes. It took about < 1sec to encode this 3 minutes which is very fast. But the encoded file had zero bytes. Not good. Tried converting the same file to a bunch of other formats .. all the same .. zero bytes files. Tried a simple .mov file and again the iPhone retina format. This time it took a bit longer and the file was actually playable. I say "playable" because it suffers from unstable framerate and stuttering. Not good. Next test: dragged an .avi file into Vidconvert. Converted to Divx format. It took a very long time to only encode 3 minutes. The encoded movie seems to be ok except the audio output had much lower volume compared to the source. Didn't look into the advanced options so maybe this is fixable. Last test was a .mp4 file to DVD-Pal. The vob file Vidconvert created was playable with VLC but again with framerate stuttering and the display aspect ratio was totally wrong. I got 4:3 instead of 16:9 This app is flawed and is unusable in my experience. The free Handbrake does the same with good results.

    Quite simply, this is the best tool I have found for this job. It is the easiest to use, processes files fast, and has a nice interface. I've tried many, many tools for video conversion in the past. They all had their ups and downs -- the worst of the worst being inconsistent output -- but I had finally settled on Avi2Demux for a long time. But that particular app had become unstable on Mac, so I had resorted to using it on my Linux box, or firing up Parallels to use the Windows build. Now I can finally dump Avi2Demux altogether, as this app does the job and does it even better. If you are going to convert videos on even a semi-irregular basis, this is well worth the $8. (Yes, it is based on ffmpeg, so there are free alternatives out there that use the same thing, but ffmpeg can be a complicated beast, and this app takes all the guesswork out of harnessing the power of ffmpeg.)

    Is there a good reason why my review has been removed? I mean, I was just pointing out all the problems it still has after trillion updates and the devs ignores those problems. I have send the devs 2 mails - which are not replied to. My rating of 2 stars is still valid for the latest release.
