"Best lightweight video editor/utility I've found."
Version: MPEG Streamclip 1.9.3b7
Not only does it do conversions, it fixes bad timecode, field dominance, and through standard Mac editing, writes new files of whatever your working on. It even opens up raw, or orphaned, .vob files, and can even join or separate them using copy/paste with Save As... It was particularly handy for opening up old DVD media that I'd recorded cable content on over the past decade or so--with commercials--and it easily lets me set up punch in/out points to remove said commercials, and render a new commercial-free file. Since, by default, it handles audio and video as a single entity, when you open up a file, you're not dealing with multiple tracks, like even iMovie, that require some care to handle properly even when doing simple edits. Its simplicity ends up being its strength, in my view.
Not really a con, but if you need to deal with audio separately from video, then you have to think through the process a bit. But again, if you can copy/paste, you can build a new file with the correct audio/video combination by selecting the appropriate menu option(s) for the work at hand.
"It just works!"
Version: MPEG Streamclip 1.9.3b7
So far I have been able to convert everything I have needed to into every format I have needed to.
It even auto prompts to repair time code breaks when needed.
This is only the second product I have ever given a 5 star rating to...and this one is FREE! It could, and should be a "for purchase" product, but because it's FREE I'm listing this under the "Pro" list.
Compatible with all major video and audio formats...and most (if not all), non-major formats.
Very easy to read and use user interface
Let's me add a watermark to the video
Simply drag your video into the MPEG Streamclip icon on the Dock and you are in business.
Haven't run into any yet. So far it works better than a few programs I have spent quite a lot of money on...which is why I use MPEG Streamclip and am writing this review.
This program is the most powerful, fast, FREE video trans-coding software I have found. I use this program almost daily for professional application.
