Converted files do not play on my iPod. Guess Vidconvert cannot make stream video files. Handbreak is way better for converting and free.

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.

A fix to this issue is to copy the ffmpeg file into User/Library/Application Support/VidConvert - worked for me.

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 Only complaint is getting message that Conversion Engine outdated, but the latest Conversion Engine seems to have not been updated, so I keep getting the message to update, even though I have the latest Conversion Engine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..

Thanks for the review and yes not all subtitles are supported at this time. You can try using Copy Subtitles in the Advanced panel to see if that helps you. For further assistance please get in touch via my website. Thanks!

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!

Sorry for the confusion but you can still download VidConvert via my site which will run on Leopard or higher (under Other Versions - http://www.reggieashworth.com/vidconvert). There also used to be a link here on MacUpdate I will contact them to add it back right away. Let me know if I can assist further thanks!

Nice and simple tool. Could really do with the option to pick audio streams. But does a great job in general.
