MPEG Streamclip requires the QuickTime MPEG-2 playback component from Apple though to work with VOB files. It is however the only program I've ever found to easily fix timecode breaks and supports batch processing. It is a very easy and well designed program.ffmpegx is also very good with the new version having presets for iPods. It also doesn't require you to buy the QT mpeg-2 playback component although you will for some options. ffmpegx can also suggest encoding bitrates for video for you and it does a pretty good job of it.

I think there was a strong consensus on Handbrake IIRC Reply 3 of 4 icfireball Posts: 2,594member December 26, 2005 9:23AM Quote:Originally posted by Jwink3101 Check the forums.

HandBrake is the best option.http://handbrake.m0k.org/ Reply 4 of 4 telomar Posts: 1,804member December 27, 2005 5:09AM Except it doesn't actually have the customisation options of the others. Only advantage it really has is it integrates mac the ripper and ffmpegx, without the full functionality. Sign In or Register to comment.
