As usual I try almost evert available converter so RoadMovie was next. Didn't know of this one though. First, it didn't accept several video files I have (.mts, .ts, .flv, m2ts, .pgm, .qcp, .swf and some other). So I tried some .mpg and mp4 files to convert to iPod, PSP and X360. One mp4 didn't work although it works for QT and several other converters. Anyway, the converted files did not work on my iPod Video (iPod Video needs a moov header and this is not supported by RoadMovie). The PSP files also did not play on my PSP3000 and PSP slim. The X360 files did play but with black borders. Converting was slow in general and only used 1 CPU core of 4 available CPU cores on my Mac Pro. Asking $25 for this is just too much knowing there are other free, cheaper and better alternatives (Handbreak and the very powerfull iVideo Converter). If the asking price was a lot lower I would give it a 2 1/2 stars. But for being very expensive for something that doesn't cut it to today standards I give this a one star rating. Avoid.

Still is asking for Perian, which has become abandonware many years ago. Not updated since May 2015. Sadly, RoadMovie has gone the way of the Dodo.

Unclear if this app can produce iOS-ready subtitles. Can it? Also unclear if it needs a pre-ripped source or not. Does it need this?

I love to use this app! He is full of features and functions of legend are great! I am pleased with the purchase! One thing however. I think this application needs to be migrated to 64-bit since he is still 32-bit. See: http://cl.ly/YI4w/Editing_the_movie_Pumping_Iron.png

Not sure whether this is still under active development. Version 2.62 crashes a lot and hasn’t been fixed since Nov-13. I also suggested many many months ago at version 1.x state the option to “stitch” files together, i.e. throw in a couple of smaller clips and have RoadMovie produce one file in the end. Alas, the feature is still missing. I’ve meanwhile moved on to iFFmpeg, which offer this functionality and much more.

RoadMovie is still under development. Version 2.7 was just released. Also please send crash reports using the built-in feedback function under the help menu. It's impossible to fix crashes without proper crash logs.

I use After Effects 9hrs a day, everyday. I work in Video Automation primarily and RoadMovie is by far the best product out there I have found for my purposes. The Applescript functionality is simply spectacular for completing my workflow. As an After Effects power user, I should be using Adobe Media Encoder right? Wrong. At this time Media Encoder is not scriptable and Roadmovie is! This allows me to update websites with background web video as well as the content videos for desktop and mobile responsive players all at once - via SFTP. I would recommend this program to anyone who uses After Effects and a Mac. As we all know AE will include the moov atom in the file, but until you re-render in Media Encoder the atom remains at the end of the file in the mp4 that AE creates. Just use RoadMovie with a little applescript, the perfect recipe for a quick result. I have found all the file sizes and video quality to be comparative with Media Encoder etc and the side by side tests show roughly the same time in render. For $29 why wouldn’t you? Great product, Great customer support and great results.

Very strange behaviour with the 2.6 update. Upon launch the app displays the standard crash dialogue but the app hasn't crashed and is still running. I can cancel this dialogue and a short while later I get a kernel panic and need to reboot. Just tried v2.5.5 and that works fine. Anyone else seeing this? Will have to contact dev to see what's going on.
