ffmpegX

Version 0.0.9y-L r2

Versatile video encoder & decoder; supports many formats.

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
  • Queue encodings in the ffmpegX Progress window
  • Includes a full-featured universal video player (mplayer) supporting VOB and text subtitles, with choice of fonts, font sizes and international text encodings including Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Greek and more
  • Supports subtitles in VobSub, SubRip, MicroDVD, SubViewer, Sami, VPlayer, RT, SSA, AQTitle, JACOsub and MPsubt formats
  • Allows creation of DVD selectable subtitles
  • Includes a subtitle converter with OCR from VOB image format to SRT text format
  • Includes a bitrate calculator to control best image quality and target filesize
  • Includes an automatic crop tool
  • Includes a series of video tools like split, join, fix, mux, demux
  • 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
  • Authors as VCD or K/XVCD (.bin/.cue files for burning with Toast by dropping the .bin into VCD window)
  • Authors as SVCD, CVD or K/XSVCD (two .img files to be burned in Toast under Multitrack XA window)
  • Authors as DVD (/DVD/ folder for burning in Toast DVD mode, and .img file for burning in Disk Image app or Toast disk image mode)

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 :)

OMG, it must be 1997 again. From the “new” version’s (o.0.9y-L) ReadMe: "Make sure that your startup disk has no spaces or special characters in its name.” Indeed, that could really throw my DOS for a loop.

I download the thing, I do not understand anything about how to use it (the online manual is fixed on Toast 6, and I have 11!). In any case I pay the 15 $ registration fee. PayPal says OK. Did I receive a key, a code, a number, you name it? No. Probably the developer is spending his well deserved summer holidays…

ffmpegX used to be my go-to for video encoding... and it still has that potential, if Major has some big things up his sleeve that he's been keeping hush-hush for years. But frankly, applications like Handbrake have suited me fine for quite some time in ffmpegX's absence. It'll take some convincing to draw me back, but I'll keep apprised of where ffmpegX goes in the coming weeks/months. If Major wants to really wow me, he'll tackle an area relatively neglected by most encoding apps: robust handling of stylized subtitles ((advanced) substation alpha) with regards to burn-in on encoding. It's an anime fan niche to be sure, but frankly with how jam-packed the encoder app scene is these days maybe appeasing a subculture would be a smart way to stand out.

“Oh my God...is that.......Lazarus? It is, it IS Lazarus!” “I thought he was dead.” “He was dead, for at least 2 or 3 years, but someone brought him back to life.” “That’s not natural, man. Just look at him; He can barely walk, he’s nothing but skin and bones, and he looks like he’s in a lot of pain.” “Oooh...he stinks, too! I can smell him all the way from here!” “Yeah, whoever brought him back didn’t do him any favor. All his friends have either died, moved out of town, or just moved on to bigger and better things. And they hang out with a whole different crowd now, too. Even his wife got remarried, and to a much younger dude! Who’s gonna hang out with that shriveled up, sad looking boney cripple who smells like ass in August?” “Not me, man. In fact, I have a date tonight with Lazarus’ hot, nubile cousin iFFmpeg!” “Yeah, I’d like to git me some of that!” “When I’m done with her, you can — she even costs $5 less than Lazarus does despite his sorry state, and she’s got more chops in her young ass than Lazarus ever did, even in his prime.” “Jeez, that ain’t right. When something’s dead, it should stay dead.” “Word."

Major *is* still working on this. The main problem is if you did not do an 'upgrade' to Lion and if the MPlayerOSX binaries are missing (mine were not). Information at this link: http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/337435-ffmpegX-0-0-9y-L-for-Mac-OSX-10-7-Lion-released Looks like a 'z' version is coming soon...

The old question: Is this project DEAD? What about 1.0? Work under way, or abandoned? Site has looked the same for a LONG time. Discussion continues on the forum, but Major hasn't posted in ages. :(

Where is Progress.app? Good questiion, since it's in the package itself, yet, the dialogs do not let you navigate to inside a package... So everytime I try to use it, it just takes a couple of minutes to locate every app on every connected drive... gives the selection dialog, and any exit attempt (by selection or cancellation) ends up with the GUI's "Encode" button waiting to be pressed again. How can an app not locate a tool that's part of itself? Anybody have a simple fix for this?

I am also having problems with the "progress.app". I have tried to crtl-click to download. I have removed the ".intel.txt" from the end of the file and yet I still am having problems. Any help would be appreciated.

When I try to encode, it asks me for "Progress.app". I read some of the earlier comments that said it's in the "ffmpegx bundle" but I can't seem to be able to view the package info or anything? When I try to preview, it gives me this error message: --- libdvdread: Couldn't find device name. Using AltiVec optimized IMDCT transform Checking for AltiVec resampler : 0x00000002, 2 Using AltiVec optimized resampler The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec. Also, try adding the scale filter, e.g. -vf spp,scale instead of -vf spp. MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode_video - MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/ FPU/RAM. Recomple MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/ bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash. -MPlayer crashed. This should happen. It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug. Quartz error: CDSequenceEnd (-50) --- Yeah, sorry, REALLY long. But any help would be appreciated! ffmpegx used to work fantastically for me, so I have no idea what's up with all this.
