ffmpegX overview

ffmpegX is a graphic user interface designed to easily operate more than 20 powerful Unix open-source video- and audio-processing tools including ffmpeg the "hyper fast video and audio encoder", mpeg2enc the open-source mpeg-2 encoder and multiplexer, and mencoder the mpeg-4 encoder with subtitles support. Please note: the ffmpegX project is not associated with the ffmpeg project, and support emails about ffmpegX should not be sent to the ffmpeg project!

  • As simple as 1.2.3 : Drop a file, choose a destination format, and click "Encode"
  • Reads the following input formats: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DIVX, XviD, non-encrypted VOB and VIDEO_TS, Quicktime .MOV, .DV, .WAV, Real Audio, Real Video, H.263, MP4 H.264, PGM, YUV, PPM, AC3, PCM8/16 bits, mulaw/Alaw, WMA-1/2, SUN AU format, MP2, MP3, AAC, 3GP, FPS1, ALAC, and even more formats
  • Converts the above formats to DivX, AVI XviD, H.264 MP4, MOV, DV, 3GP, Sony PSP, MP2, MP3, AAC, AC3, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, VCD, CVD, SVCD, KVCD, KSVCD, DVD, KDVD and MPEG-TS with complete control over encoding options
  • Super-fast. Many conversions are faster than realtime. DIVX encoding on a G5 dual is twice as fast as realtime

  • Compresses a non-encrypted DVD to 4GB without reencoding it
  • Reauthors SVCD as DVD
  • Creates DVD image files from VIDEO_TS folders
  • Converts SRT subtitles to DVD Studio Pro 1.5 format
  • Creates AVI or MPG files with two audio tracks

Is v. 0.0.9z still in the works (as the developer said in his reply to Yazarim below)? That would be GREAT because although I bought and regularly use iFFmpeg — probably the best overall video app available (especially at only $12) — it’s best at transcoding rather than the many utility video manipulations (e.g. demuxing, cropping, muxing, joining, etc.) that ffmpegX was good at. If it were updated, I’d use it at least once a week.

Well, I thought until a few days ago this was my only choice, with iFFmpeg, to convert .ts files, but I have errors reading those files now and searched for alternatives. Try "Free MTS M2TS Converter" and you'll be amazed as I was! (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/42968/free-mts-m2ts-converter) Cropping and the likes are easy as can be, no crash, works for many formats if not all, what can one want more? P.S.: for those who don't know yet .ts can be either MPEG2 or H264 and the latter is not managed by MpegStreamclip or this.

I have to say I'm surprised to see this application updated. I thought it had become dead software as it hadn't been updated in so long. I used to use it quite a bit before switching to iffmpeg. I'll trly the new version to see how it works these days :)
