I've had instability issues using APE on both a G4 powerbook and a dual G5 powermac going back to version 1, but i keep it around out of necessity for app's like Audio Hijack Pro. Using the Master Exclude List has not seemed to be effective for me. As it is now, I have to quit the 'aped' process whenever I need to ensure stability which has become an annoying, repetitive task.

I've had many different app's crash and I check my crash logs whenever there's a crash. 9 times out of 10, APE has been running. I'm not commenting to bash APE because I do enjoy what it allows me to do, but after 2 years of use, the instability outweighs the benefits. I do hope APE will achieve better stability. I'd use it all the time.

Check out WiseWeasel's post too. The fellow knows what he's talking about.

decent app; free so can't complain. i've had mixed results with every video converter i've used so this is one i've added to the arsenal. it does a good job most of the time, with a few weird exports here and there. it does handle some files that QT can't, so that's a plus. mostly using it to make iPod videos. thumbs up.

umm. ignore list not working on my powerbook or g5. tried toggling checkbox and switching apps and when that didn't work i tried relaunching app. "go idle on ignored app's" checkbox is checked, speed freak is on the list, ignored list is enabled, but S.F. still accelerates itself. what am i missing? other than that it does what it says, which gives a nice added pep to my app's.

[EDIT] i am no longer using this app. not enough gains/ too much hassle to justify continued use. "ignore list" hasn't worked, ever. plus i've seen the comments about the log file accumulation. no mas, no mas.
