Editors' Review


MP4Tools for Mac aims to provide users with a number of capable tools for easy video editing and processing. Even though the menu seems rather difficult to interpret, the program proves to be a good application for processing video files.

At almost 49MB, this download takes a bit longer to complete. While the program is available with all of its functions for free, eliminating a pop-up dialog box and unlocking batch processing requires a $5.99 payment. After starting up quickly, MP4Tools for Mac's main menu is basic and lacks any graphics or user aids. A bar along the top allows for selection of video files via a finder window. The program appears to allow for dragging and dropping of videos into a large window. However, when we tried to drag and drop one of our files, the program notified us that this option is not available until the application is registered. The remaining options, which are extensive, are rather difficult to figure out. Holding the cursor over buttons does not bring up any additional information. Even though Show Tool Tips was enabled by default in the Preferences, there was no apparent contextual help available for key operations. Users do have the ability to modify most aspects of the video conversion, including frame rate, subtitles, and audio options. Sub-menus also allow for editing tracks and files, which are useful features. During conversion, the program takes as long as other similar programs, and the output is good.

Even though some users may find it slightly difficult to use due to its confusing interface, MP4Tools for Mac does include all of the features one would expect from a video conversion application.

"Grat App! Does Exactly What It Says"

 |  Version: MP4Tools 3.4.5


Excellent mkv conversion
Audio transcode
Add, mux or burn subtitles


UI is very sparse.
(Need to read "MP4tools Guide" at


MP4Tools has been my go to app for .mkv to m4v transcodes. It handles huge files, full HD, changing audio codecs & adds/exports subtitles. At $6, it's a bargain. Consider the VIDEOtoolbox (all emmgunn 4 apps) for $10. bk

"The utility is great and does a really good job"

 |  Version: MP4Tools 3.2.2


*perfect conversions of mkv to Apple environment compatible files
*watch folder
*recompresses files if needed with good control ('pass-through' is usually all thats needed)


*UI could do with some work


This is a great utility and does exactly what it says it does and does it well. I cant understand why people damn software with one stars based on demos, especially when its actually leader in its class.

"Free version is more crippled than stated"

 |  Version: MP4Tools 3.1


Don't know: couldn't use it.


Free version doesn't join two files.
Free version doesn't accept drag and drop file names.


I downloaded this specifically to join a few pairs of MP4 files, but this won't do it. The dev says that the free version has a nagware screen and won't batch or queue files, but otherwise is fully functional. Not true. It will not join files. It also doesn't do drag and drop. Apparently both capabilities are activated with a payment.
