    "Would be good if not for abysmal OGV output"

    July 24, 2013  |   By pysailor

    Version: Miro Video Converter 3.0

    Pros

    Batching, which is new in this version.
    Conversion mov -> WebM works nicely

    Cons

    OGV output is horrible, and there's no way to configure any options. Version 2 of Miro Converter had good OGV output - I compared converting the same source with both versions.

    "Great software, let down by poor OGV output"

    March 21, 2013  |   By ijustcantstopit

    Version: Miro Video Converter 3.0

    Pros

    Intuitive, simple interface
    Encode queue
    Supports myriad input formats
    Solves the problem of converting video for use on the web easily

    Cons

    OGG output is bad
    No way to adjust output settings other than video frame dimensions
    Queue doesn't allow for video-by-video settings, which means you have to run a batch job for each format you want to output

    Summary

    Would be a near-perfect little app if it wasn't for these glaring problems.

    "Give us back version 2 please!"

    January 28, 2013  |   By p.leevers

    Version: Miro Video Converter 3.0

    Pros

    Better looking interface than previous versions

    Cons

    Dangerously unstable. First use: produced a 3.7 MB mp4 file from a 35 MB mov file. Impressive! Until I tried to open it. The mp4 turned out to be the only thing which ever froze everything on my Mac solid except for the cursor.

    Summary

    Pull v3 and give us back v2 please: that worked fine for me.

    "Horrible, Useless, Waste of Time!"

    January 14, 2013  |   By stevencee

    Version: Miro Video Converter 3.0

    Pros

    None, well, it looks nice...

    Cons

    1. Took 1GIG movie files and created one 35 mb & one 6mb DOCUMENT files!
    2. Neither would open, or play.
    3. Noticed my CPU Usage showed two FFMpeg files using nearly 200% EACH! I force quit them, then the two results of this pos software also (thankfully) disappeared.
    4. There are ZERO instructions or preferences!
    5. Truthfully one of the worst programs I've ever seen....

    Summary

    I wish I had never heard of this program, it's terrible, useless, and maddening...
