Halfassed crap. Developer just took the UI from DVDxDV and slapped it on BlueX. Trial only converts 30 seconds of video!! Dev, get a freakin' clue.

What is "lossless conversion...with H264 wrapping"? I thought H264 was video codec, not a wrapper (like mkv or avi), and while the quality can be very good, it's also not lossless. Can someone clarify?

Here's how it works. The H.264 video is unchanged as it is moved from a MT2 file wrapper to a Quicktime movie. So you have the exact same H.264 video, but in playable editable form. You can use this Quicktime movie directly in any application that supports Quicktime.

@Developer: Since you support 10.5, I suggest that you include PowerPC in your builds. -It doesn't take long to set up your Xcode project for this, but it's probably worth it, as there are not many MTS/BD utils for PPC; eg. I know there are people out (t)here looking for up-to-date converters.

If you need a longer export time, just email us at support@dvdxdv.com. We'll be happy to give you a temporary key code, so that you can use BlueX without restrictions for 30 days. The package files are the recommended way of installing programs on a Mac. This is what Apple recommends for developers, so we use it.

Unfortunately I can't run this app, because I don't have any intel based computers. I only have PowerPC based Macs, so I'd really appreciate, if you could compile it for PowerPC. :)

Apple doesn't let you build PPC on XCode 4.5 and Lion which is our current build environment for this product. The performance PPC might be really slow, as well.

OK. That's sad, it might be too much work then.

Did you see the warning message that it displays at the beginning that tells you it only converts 30 seconds because it is a trial version? How can we make it clearer for you that that is the limitations of a trial version of software. What would you like improved on the UI?

Yes Einstein, I saw the warning. I'm not complaining because it surprised me, I'm complaining because it's nowhere near enough time to determine whether your product is any good. But your trial policy makes up for it by showing me that you're a dicky developer.

How long of an extraction time do you think would be enough to evaluate the product? 2 minutes, 5 minutes or 10 minutes. There's an obvious limit to how much we can convert in the trial version because we still need to encourage people to buy it. Since I know you purchased DVDxDV, send us an email at support@dvdxdv.com and we'll be happy to send you a temporary key code, so you can evaluate the full version of the product.

I do agree 30 seconds is hardly enough time. I understand a limit but it should at least be 5 minutes since most films have about 4 minutes of logos at the beginning of them. In addition, why provide a package installer if the only thing installed is the app? Just allow drag and drop. Packages are pointless if there's only the app to install. And packages for single apps make me leery of why the developers is using a package. What else may be installed via the package?? In this case, nothing according to logs, but still.
