iDealshare VideoGo is just the right MKV to Apple TV Converter! It can easily and batch convert MKV files to Apple TV MP4 which is also compatible with iTunes on Mac or Windows.

I just got Smart Converter Pro 3. Does anyone know how to turn off the Apple TV part of this program? Every time I convert a video I save it in my movie folder, but it also sends it into the Apple TV (iTunes) folder. Is there a way to turn this setting off. I paid $14.99 for this program because I heard there was a way to turn this feature off. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks in advance.

I had the free version and it worked great (although it's super fucking annoying not being able to turn off the send to iTunes option) but then it just randomly stopped letting me convert videos for no reason and when I google it nothing comes up. Super fucking annoying.

Anyone??? I am completely new to all of the Smart Converter Pro and UTorrent and Itunes conversion..and I saw that you have been using SCPro for a long time..can you PLEASE help me with this question.. Up until last night when I would use UTorrent to download a TV show, then from my SCPro, convert for Apple TV..it would automatically send it to Itunes..now this morning, it will not send it to Itunes. Can you tell me how to fix this? Also...I have, I think, just the model Apple TV, not an Apple TV 1 or 2, etc....the SCPro is set at the bottom to Apple TV, but then under the More button, it says Apple TV1..so I don't understand this. I am in South Africa and am totally lost without being able to see my US TV shows... hoping that you will be so kind as to help me on this... Thank you..Lee

I was surprised that it took video clips that quicktime claimed were bad and converted them successfully to then open in quicktime. However, I am EXTREMELY ANNOYED that I have no choice in whether the video gets dumped into iTunes or not. I don't want every fricking clip dumped into itunes!!!!!!!!!!! There is no setting to turn this off or change it which is R E T A R D E D!!!!!!!!! There is no excuse to force the clips into itunes. Just dump them into a folder and give me the CHOICE whether I want them imported or not! I'm going to dig into the package and see if I can find the setting and remove it. There is also no choice as to the folder or its location that the program uses to store the videos. So you end up with the same video in both itunes and in ~/Library/Movies/SmartConverter/ folders. Are you listening Developer??! FIX THIS!

Really a good free video converter. Smooth and fast. But just a converter, can not edit video and make movie. So I use this free convert to convert videos for my iphone and buy another similar app called Total Video Converter Pro ( http://www.etinysoft.com/total-video-converter-hd.html) to burn DVD.

Converting mkv to the Apple TV preset doesn't work. I get audio without video. It also took an incredible long time to convert the file. For a 15 minute video it needed +1 hour! Handbrake did the same job with playable results in less then 5 minutes.

I tried this specifically to convert wmv files to mov for viewing in QT-compatible players (I prefer not to use Telestream's Flip4Mac products because of their licensing and privacy practices). I found it to be more than adequate in doing this. It was fairly quick. There are no preferences to fiddle with - so no need to choose codecs, bit rates, FPS, etc. - just drag and drop, hit the button, and off it goes. Playing the converted mov file in QT alongside the original wmv file in VLC, I detected very little loss of quality. The FPS, bit rates, etc. were identical to the original wmv file. The one thing I didn't like was how the application automatically added converted files to iTunes as well as a folder in the Movies folder.

Love the speed. BUT... it converts movies that have surround sound into STEREO. Darn!

Freezes randomly when converting on OS X 10.7.2 Didnt produce one converter file. Free but worthless. Handbrake is the way to go if you need a free converter.

I don’t quite understand Jazzguy’s comment because Smart Converter has proven to me to be anything but stable (or smart, BTW). It crashes every other time I ran it on my Mac OS 10.7.1 iMac and 10.6.8 MacBook — both new-ish and immaculately maintained. Additionally, Smart Converter doesn’t make DVDs, MPEG2 or Matroska (.mkv) files, and there is no ability to select, change or adjust anything at all, so it’s ridiculously barebones and utterly useless, like most of Shedworks software. To be fair, I gave it a 5-star Ease of Use rating simply because it’s never used by anyone I know, therefore extremely easy. Nice that it’s free, though.

Smooth and Perfect application. NOT unstable in any way. I tried it with a wmv movie and it converted it to mov and moved it into iTunes. I love it and it is free! Great GUI and it does exactly what it says it does.

A sound start, but still has a ways to go for a free converter compared to others out there... and there are plenty for those who know how to look for them. Even for those daunted by HandBrake's settings, using it straight up with just some basic features, is still better. However, for those who use their Mac as a "magic box" that just does things for them, and are satisfied with not having to make choices, this app has a strong place in the community. Still, it could be more without losing that appeal.

The UI is kinda nice and simple. But it lacks advanced features. Didn't produce a working movie for my iPod something many converters doesnt seem to do anyway. But it is already much better compared to Vidconvert which is the main competitor for simple converters. Free is great too. However, still some work to do but promising nevertheless. I will keep an eye on this.

Pretty fast. I would even say a bit faster than Handbrake, but lacks a few options like choosing destination folder, etc. In any case, this is a very good beginning.
