ffmpegX is a Mac OS X GUI to ffmpeg the "hyper fast video and audio encoder" (http://ffmpeg.sourceforge.net/). It can decode MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 (aka DIVX4/5), VOB, AVI MS-MPEG4 V3 (aka DIVX 3), WAV, Real Audio, H263(+) (aka RealVideo 1.0), PGM, YUV, PPM, AC3, PCM8/16 bits, mulaw/Alaw, WMA, SUN AU format, MPEG audio layer 2, MPEG audio layer 3, MJPEG and even more formats. This GUI provides quick encoding to DivX, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MP2, MP3 & AC3. MPEG-2 encoding relies on mpeg2enc component from the mjpegtools package (http://mjpeg.sourceforge.net/MacOS/). You can convert DVD video to DivX, DivX to VCD or SVCD, and DVD to VCD or SVCD. Includes a bitrate calculator and a mpeg splitter for multiple CD burning. When encoding to MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 it can author the video as VCD or XVCD (.bin/.cue files for burning with Toast by dropping the .bin into VCD window) or as SVCD or XSVCD (two .img files to be burned in Toast under Multitrack XA window).
What's new in this version:
- Added sharpness control for VCD and SVCD encoding (note: denoise must also be checked). Allowed values are from 0 to 255% (default: 125%). Do not set too high as it will increase bit-noise.
- Added "Info" tool to display information about elementary mpeg video or audio files (.m1v, .m2v, .mpv, .mpa, .mp2, .mp3).
- The "Mux as.." tool will normally convert non-mp2 audio sources to mp2 before muxing (i.e. you're muxing for VCD/SVCD), however if the audio file is in AC3 format and has a... See all new features »
