Great software. While re-written documentation or a simplified user interface might help if one tries to do some of the more complex tasks the app can do, transcoding or re-wrapping videos into iOS or OSX compatible formats works beautifully. Rarely I find a video crafted in some bizarre fashion that MP4Tools doesn't like but Handbrake usually can deal with it. It's good to have a number of tools handy but MP4Tools is my go-to app first.

Love this app. I don't need to buy an tv to get my iPad's screen on my iMac's display; Reflection does it perfectly. I can connect my Mac to a projector and send my iPad screen over to it so I can do demos switching between the iPad and the Mac seamlessly. (No tv/HDTV available where I demo.) Excellent tech support. Works great under 10.8, as well.

Nice app. Does what it says. Ugly user interface (looks like it's a Windoze port) but that can be forgiven as it works well.

What a lifesaver! My Snow Leopard Mac simply won't recognize the video fed through an old Sony DVMC1 media analog media convertor into the FireWire port. Even running iMovieHD (v6.0.4), which was designed specifically for DV input and worked perfectly with older Macs, just didn't work. So, in desperation, I tried recdv and, right away, it recognized the Sony and works perfectly. Not too many features but, hey!, it gets the job done; my video (200+GB of DV) was digitized into my Mac and I can edit the footage in iMovie or FCP. Show me where to donate. :D

Thank you, LaCie, for providing this great app. I use TimeMachine and also do a SilverKeeper backup. Works great with Snow Leopard and earlier back to Tiger (and even earlier - 10.3.9, IIRC). Love the fact that I can run all the backup "sets" on a schedule. If a destination disk is missing, SK will just log the error and keep on with the rest of the backup sets.

I backup my wife's PowerBook over our wireless network and SK will even mount the shared volume and then the sparse image image automatically, perform the backup, and then unmount everything. Beautiful.

Wish I could find a backup app as cooperative as this for my Windoze machines.

Does two things: Binary to Decimal and vice versa. Exactly what I needed. Hopefully it will still run when I upgrade to Snow Leopard next week. :D

This is a very interesting application. Seems to be quite happy playing with MPEG4/H264 (avc1) files. Does picture-in-picture in a snap. Titling is also quite easy and intuitive. It's almost like the offspring of FCE & iMovieHD (and I mean that as a compliment). I'll definitely be working with this app to see if it will be the right workflow for my NLE needs.

I'm not providing a rating of any sort yet as I don't know the app well enough to provide a valid judgement.

Wow! Does exactly what it claims to do. I'm running a 1.25GHz G4 mini with Tiger fully updated. Next step is to program my Keyspan remote for Front Row and I've got an ersatz AppleTV (which I already own).

Many thanks to the developer for this extremely useful utility!

Without this codec, AC3 audio isn't playable in apps that rely upon QT. (Of course, VLC doesn't have an issue but that's because VLC is self-contained and has all of the requisite components and codecs built-in.)

This codec plus Perian plus Flip4Mac's free component let virtually everything play in your QT apps.

Thank you!
