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 Only complaint is getting message that Conversion Engine outdated, but the latest Conversion Engine seems to have not been updated, so I keep getting the message to update, even though I have the latest Conversion Engine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

Version: 1.2.1
Every time a new update arises I put some energy into it to give it swirl. If I should give it a percentage how many good/watchable/playable movies it creates I am forced to tell you it is less then 25% Sometimes it just seems to hang and this action mostly results in a blank file. Other times the image quality is average. It struggles with source files with multi channel audio streams. Two times the end result had a wrong YUV format. It keeps spitting out non-smooth playing end results. They mostly/always stutter at some point. I hate that. A movies is intended to playback smoothly without any stuttering. Even if it only occurs every now and then. The developer tries to make it a good converter but it simply only copes with simple source material. Ones some more advanced features as multi audio channels, subs and non standard YUVs are kicking in it doesn't deliver. 'bout merging of files -- The encoded final result has timestamp problems in most tries. Seeing the application uses the libavcodec aka ffmpeg, the developer needs to dig into -- how to use ffmpeg correctly -- asap! I just cannot recommend this app at this stage. Back to handbrake for me. Always creates usable movies without any hassle at all. And handbrake is free too. Figures.

Good user interface but results are below average. Has many issues with 5.1 audio videos. Some didn't convert, some had awful sound quality. It claims Prores support, but this latest version with latest engine does not converted any Prores files I tried. Some converted the first seconds and stopped promptly. In the end a worthless converter. Handbrake is way better, free and always produces perfect quality.

I give up. This new version still spits out 0KB files when you throw mkv files at it. Well, one mkv file did convert but could not be played on my LG. With VLC it played but playback wasn't smooth. Most probably it seems to struggle with timestamps. It works for mp4 files but it has similar issues with not playing smooth with VLC. Again timestamps are the problem and jerky framerates. mkv is basically a standard container and for me a must have. No good mkv support = no money

In the hope 1.1.2 has been improved it was a big disappointment to see it now only creates non playable movies. Yes I use your latest 'Converting enging aka ffmpeg'. Some other things I really dislike: Get rid of the hud options screen. It is a mess and not very readable. hud screens was a hype when it was released but a good dev doesnt used it. Get rid of the ugly progressbar-pie-shart. A small default progressbar would do the job much better Get rid of the 3 minutes limit for us to try. Sorry, not good

With version 1.1.2 of VidConvert comes some crucial bug fixes that make this little app shine. I now find that while I own "ultimate" converters that cost as much as $69.99 that most of the time it is just simpler to use this capable little app. Several reviews below address bugs in installation from earlier versions or problems that made it hard to see how fine this app works. Reggie has rapidly responded by fixing those problems for good and optimizing the video bitrates for the codecs, optimizing the speed and performance of previewing, joining (stitching together) clips and putting the finished clip in the correct output folder. Virtually all known issues have been address in my opinion. Now, all an interested user need do is download it, try it, like it as I do and then buy it!

Didn't noticed this converter before. First time i tried - it presented a error telling me something is missing (add a file) but there was already a file. Bummer. Then I got a message only thee minutes for trial. Bummer. Sorry to say but I cannot test your app with this limitation. I tried several movies to convert - some resulted in 0kb files?!? The ones that got converted did not play smoothly with QT (skipping frames et all). Two converted files had audio sync issues and showed block artifacts?!? Sorry to say - in its present form it does not work as advertised.

Maybe I was spoiled when I used Windows because there are plenty of good Windows xvid converters. As a new iMac owner I am looking for a workable converter. avi and xvid are important codecs for me. The converted Xvid files VidConvert created didn't play on two of my Xvid hardware players. With the fantastic VLC software player it worked ok but had several hickups in playback. But what staggers me the most, it didn't created real Xvid files. Only the video tag has been changes to xvid but the core is mpeg2video in a avi container. This explains why it cannot be played on hardware decoders. Concl. this is my first converter I tried for Mac OSX and though I liked the simple interface, it cannot convince me to buy it because it doesn't work well enough for xvid. Will try some other Mac OSX converters and see what happens. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

after reading a small review at macgem I took a shot at this app but it was a very disappointing journey. After the dreadfull install instructions it managed to get it working. Dropped several h264 files on it, set it to iphone preset and let it do its work. The files didn't play on my iphone4. Tried several other presets. ipod preset worked but the quality was not good. aspect ratios showed wronly too. i tried many things to get it do better quality but failed everytime this is a time waster. handbrake is free and does it perfectly without any issues not good, sorry

This actaully a frontend for ffmpeg. You have to compile or download a ffmpeg first. The deveveloper calls this a engine which is not correct and misleading too. Anyways, it lacks many options to make it usefull for advanced users. Didn't like some mkv I dropped and freezed. Actaully the ffmpeg in background freezed. I prefer iffmpeg and handbrake. Both are way better in both usability and results.

One of the few converters to date with 64-bit support. Easy to use, very fast conversions compared to my old trusty workhorse VisualHub. I have not encountered any problems so far using VidConvert. Great tool for the arsenal. Between VidConvert and Permute I can finally say R.I.P to the defunct VisualHub.

To make this work you have to go to the applications website. Search for instructions and download some sort of engine. That isn't very user unfriendly at all. End results are bad. I get vertical color bars and other strange artifacts when converting to the iPod preset. Useless for me. Sorry. Back to Handbrake which is free and much much much better.

This little app is a sweet blockbuster. I want to make my opinion clear. I like the pie chart 'progress bar"...simple and neat! Numbers, so what? Also, there are presets already. As far as retaining settings, when it comes to converting practically all media clips from YouTube and the Web (which is only one thing this mighty little app can do), the user will discover that clips never are consistently the same in their advanced settings downloainded from the Tube. Yet Reggie Ashworth can easily set up some defaults in the Advanced palette. Many users who have not canvased the Mac market can not appreciate what Reggie has packed in this little guy, like a media properties palette and enough filetypes for many devices and media players and QuickTime and iTunes at only a very low price!!! Great job, Reggie! I give it a 5 in every respect though I know Reggie will do more in the future like perhaps the ability to actually "live" view clips while doing edits and cropping precedures. If not, the app still is a mind blower as it is.

i really appreciate the work that went in to this as it make things simple for converting videos i tryed odd formats like indeo 5 and it converts with no problem same for wmv well at least for me also to me the gui is pleasing only 2 issues which are rather features requests are missing 1. Ability to create a user defined presents i usually stick to one format for converting my videos for compatibility reasons though i may use others at some point. 2.Also when it come to the conversion engine download is it possible for you to take a step out of iffmpeg book so when i user drag the ffmpeg library in to the main window of vidconvert for it to be added that way would be easier for alot of peopl.

Reggie Ashworth just put out 1.1. The VidConvert is Sweet! It has more robust bitrates in the high quality auto settings for mp4, h.264, mov, etc. and the settings are adequate for the audio file types mp3, m4a and wav. The advanced mode lets you home in on the perfect numbers and another neat panel as the qualities of the source video. The audio bitrates could be made a little more robust but using the codecs in iffmeg, I don't think it his problem. Where another product I know has many more filetypes, what I see is that for the Mac and sending the most important filetypes over to the PC, here are the perfect handful of filetypes. The value and ease of use stars on this site seem to not let me give Reggie 5's, but the app deserves 5's on these scores. Reggie's app is much handsomer than people in this comment list think it is. The new release of 1.1 today fixes a lot of issues. Reggie is just so open to improving this app. Because this app is getting so good so fast and because you can convert simply or convert to the max, I strongly recommend his new release which raises his work 1000%. If you need a good basic, high quality converter which aims right at what you actually need for the Mac, this one is a fine, well tuned little guy that really works great. I say "Buy it!"

This app forces you to download a so called 'Conversion Engine'. This seems to be an (illegal?) ffmpeg file. Why is the dev hiding he is using avlibs with codecs he may not use without permission? Tried it anyway: Dragging a .dv file didn't work. Dragging a .vdr file didn't work. Dragging a .evo file didn't work. Dragging a .avi worked but converting to mp4, quality was not very good. Especially audio didn't sound very well (too low samplerate?) A .mkv with 5.1 audio did not convert at all. I stopped trying after this. Its clearly in alpha stage and needs a lot of work before it is actually usable. What stumbles me the most is the dev is already asking money for this. Shame on you !

Converted a couple of files. 1 .ts file didn't work, 1 .mpg got stuck after about 25% converting, 3 .mov did convert but quality was very bad. One couldn't be played with the QT player because of audio synchronization problems.

It is a bit too thin on features to cope with all the other converters imo. And most comparable apps are even free too. On top of this, the quality is not very good atm. This needs a big boost in the next version. Also struggles with 5.1 .mov files I tried. Conclusion: Not recommended atm For me there are two converters that stand out: 1) Handbrake is already very good and hard to match. 2) If you need more codecs, bells and whistles, iFFmpeg is clearly the best atm (though not free but very cheap). Another thing I noticed: Why are most 5 star ratings of new users with only one review? Very suspicious. ;-)

I disagree with most reviews here. I mean, it falls short in many aspects regarding controllability. It just don't stand against Handbrake and iFFMPEG. IMO those are the best converters ever for OSX (by far) Yes, VidConvert is easy to use for simple tasks. But most available features are not matured yet: Cropping is a hell to use. too few codecs support. High quality is not 'high' but more or less 'average'. it strugled with several MTS files i tried. Two times it freezed when trying to convert a .m2ts files. no preview. no merging. Mpeg4 encoding is kinda slow compared to Handbrake. DivX converted file didn't played on my hardware player. Personally, I do not like the GUI but that is more or less a personal issue. The HUD windows are a mess imo and sometimes confusing. And why does it uses Mencoder? FFMpeg is way better. Also, this makes VidConvert illegal. The included Mencoder uses licensed codecs that are not free. Sooner or later this is going to give the dev a hard time because the dev can face lawsuits resulting in a dead end app like VisualHUB and other discontinued converters. BTW Come to think of it. I do not think it is the running with Handbrake and iFFMPEG but more with Permute, WMV, evom.

I've been using the apps of Reggie Ashworth for quite a time now and I have been very satisfied with each! The same with the one he recently released, VidConvert! It does what the typical Apple User wants! Simplicity, effortlessly working abilities, simple look and a bunch if internal features! Thats all this great app offers in my opinion! Of course there are some things which can be "tuned" like the trial converting time or some interface things but the the engine behind this app is amazing! Thanks for making such wonderful apps ;)

When describing the capabilities of conversion software, rather than use vague language like claiming that this app can convert "just about any type of video into one of the popular formats of the day," the developer should be much more specific and lay it all out in clear language. A table, or grid, on his website should using rows and columns is the best format to communicate such information. Tell us exactly what the INPUT formats can be in the Input column, and then tell use exactly what the OUTPUT formats will be in the Output column, once your app does its magic. Same principle applies to the devices. Tell us what formats on what devices can be converted to other formats on other devices. All other vague descriptions are mere fluff compared to laying things out clearly in a table. We assume your code is precise: make your marketing communications just as precise.

The demo only allows a 2-minute length conversion. I'd like to be able to convert say 5 files total for the demo, hard to determine performance & speed for converting a full video file.

I just bought this App because I looked for anything like that for a long period of time... All the apps out there have different problems, like the not "apple look", the price, the missing features and so on! But this app combines it all and has an very nice price! It does its job very well and I don't want to miss it! :)

VidConvert will convert files that make VisualHub and even QuickTime Pro choke. The interface is plain but the program works. (I suspect the interface will get tweaked later in life. ) The developer is very good at working with users to improve the program and does so with good communication. For a v.1.0 program it is a 5 star for me.
