    "Perfect for DSLR .mov footage"

    June 06, 2012   |   By SidneyTurnerMedia

    Version: MPEG Streamclip 1.2

    Pros

    Free
    Works fast
    Used by some pros

    Cons

    Has a glitched button and window. Still works but is a bit fiddky.

    Summary

    Works great and fast on my PC. Transcodes in real time (5min footage takes 5min to transcode) Does require a good bit of messing around to get settings right.I use with the Avid DNxHD codec and it converts the H2.64 into something VERY usable for video editing programs. Big/long files playback in realtime without having to 'render' them first in Sonyvegas/Premiere Pro. Philip Bloom (a professional director) himself uses this software although as he uses mac, he does not use the Avid codec.

    "Non-functional"

    November 12, 2011   |   By annabananaruth

    Version: MPEG Streamclip 1.2

    Pros

    No pros; it did not work.

    Cons

    I tried downloading different YouTube videos, but MPEG Streamclip always put over 20 videos in the queue, and failed to download any of them. I watched a tutorial on how to use this software, and it seemed pretty straightforward; I don't think I'm doing anything wrong!

    Summary

    Did not work - at least not on my Win 7 system.

    "Probably the best video transcoding freeware"

    January 06, 2011   |   By JLMalaquias

    Version: MPEG Streamclip 1.2

    Pros

    It knows a great number of codecs, it is easy to use, and it works fine most of the times

    Cons

    It is a little Apple-centric, requiring you to have QuickTime.
    Also, it had some problems with specific codecs.
    A bit slow

    Summary

    Great deal, considering that it's freeware.
    If you have a nasty codec compatibility problem, this may be the way to solve it.

    "Easy to use"

    December 29, 2008   |   By sbtf064

    Version: MPEG Streamclip 1.2

    Pros

    It is great for downloading youtube videos and is very easy to figure out. It is also very light on system resources.

    Cons

    You have to Quicktime in order for it to work.

    "exactly what I wanted, does the job, no extraneous junk"

    November 27, 2008   |   By fubidou

    Version: MPEG Streamclip 1.2

    Pros

    Does exactly what it says it will. No fussing about. Installs in seconds. Appears to be very light on CPU. Very easy to use, don't need to read the instructions (apart from the READ ME FIRST file - you do need to read that!)

    Cons

    Didn't let me drag the file into it. Had to go via the menu. But not a problem. READ ME FIRST file says you need to have QuickTime or equivalent installed to run the program. But that is not a problem - most people have this.

    Summary

    No flashy graphics, upgrade offers, doesn't assume it knows what I want, doesn't eat my CPU. Just converts the file from what it is, to what I want it to be. Saves it where I want it to be saved. Nothing more. Nothing confusing. The best kind of software out there.

    "It did the MP4 to AVI conversion I needed"

    September 28, 2008   |   By janos_arrakoski

    Version: MPEG Streamclip 1.2

    Pros

    Did what I expected it to do, converted the MP4 file to AVI while another well rated software (Format Factory) did not. I have not used it more yet.

    Cons

    Did not come with an installer, you can add the icons yourself but it's nice if the software does it for you. The conversion was quite slow. I have not used it more yet.

    "It needs more."

    August 27, 2008   |   By ZZDaikun

    Version: MPEG Streamclip 1.2

    Pros

    Great for merging and converting certain movie files to other formats. Basic cutting is very precise. Wide variety of compression types.

    Cons

    Can't import AVIs, although it can export them (figure that out). Lacks a lot of useful editing features. Doesn't fix the sizes for multiple clips with different resolutions. Only merges clips in alphabetical order, for some reason.

    Summary

    It's still too young. If you just want to snag some quick clips from your favorite podcasts, this is right up your alley. However, if you're looking for a potential alternative to Windows Movie Maker, move along.
