Highly recommended application for grabbing streams.
Could download every video from YouTube I wanted and the auto converting is a very nice addition.

Still free and hoping it will stay free. ;-)

- Interface is a bit dull
- It actually works

Nothing more to say except do a make over of the interface. :)

The3th program I found with the 'other people suggest' link. btw a nice feature of Macupdate !

- Very nice and easy to use interface. Best of the three I tested.
- Enormous amount of options to dig in. No documentation though and only some help tags.
- PSP presets actually works for my PSP3000. Great!
- Default settings gave good to very good quality.
- 2 pass encoding works like it should.
- Very good preview feature. Not seen in other converters. It actually shows the end result.

The only issue I got with ivideo converter : it has no stitching option.

For me this is clearly the best of the three I tested. The interface is really fantastic. The results are very good.

If you need a free converter you certainly need Handbrake. But if you want just that bit more ivideo converter for 7eur is a steal!

After trying videovangelist I found this with the 'other people suggest' link.

- Interface is out dated.
- Good amount of settings to dig into.
- Quality is from average to very good
- PSP preset only plays well with H264. The default MPEG4 settings doesnt work with PSP3000
- 2pass encoding works like it should.
- Couldnt select aspect ratio.
- Not a real preview. Only a frame-shot of the source. This should be at least a shot of the destination result.

In the end it actually works very well. Good tool

Thank you for this great tool. I like it a lot.

A two star rating isn't much so I do not expect much either.
Downloaded it anyway because I like the screenshot interface.

Things I noticed:

- The screenshot is not how the program is looking. In fact it is plain different and not very good.
- Dragging has a strange behavior. After you dragged a file it sweeps back to the folder.
- PSP converted files do not play on my PSP3000.
- Even on good to best quality mode it still produce mediocre movie quality. Why can I not choose a bitrate my self?
- Only 16/9 and 4/3 aspect ratios.
- 2 pass encoding doesnt work correct. In fact it gives the same result as 1 pass.
- Stitching 2 files didnt work either. Got a applescript error.

Possible there are other issues to be solved also.
At version 2.x this is not convincing for me.

Totally unnecessary tool for Snow Leopard.

Press the 3 and 2 keys simultaneous while booting -> 32bit
Press the 6 and 4 keys simultaneous while booting -> 64bit

Indeed. And it gives a Exception error when trying to start in 64bit. Great tool ... not.

BTW tried on both iMac 2.96 Ghz Duo Core and Macbook Pro 2.8Ghz

It still s*cks

Irony of it all. It is written in realbasic = 32bit

I am new to osx and I missed a good torrent tool.
This is by far the best for osx imo.

Clean, simple and it works without a problem.

Must have tool for torrent freaks.
