    "Aweful app. Don't download"

    February 27, 2014   |   By jestermaximus

    Version: ffmpegX 0.0.9y-L

    Pros

    It has a secure download?

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to work at all.

    Summary

    Ran the secure cnet download. When the download was complete and I clicked the installer, nothing happened. Well almost nothing, chrome closed along with all my tabs. When chrome reopened itself, there were three new extensions and my default search engine had been switched to Yahoo.

    "Actually does what it says"

    May 10, 2010   |   By larrybobsf

    Version: ffmpegX 0.0.9y

    Pros

    Actually converts a video to FLV, which is what I needed, without crippleware logos.

    Cons

    Somewhat complicated installation procedure, but which can be accomplished fairly quickly.

    Summary

    Delivers video conversions, including to FLV format.

    "This product is absolutely horrible!"

    April 06, 2009   |   By mrreida

    Version: ffmpegX 0.0.9y

    Pros

    It compresses video/audio files in many assorted formats...

    Cons

    Horrible interface, costs $15 (which is WAYYYYYY to much for this software) after trial, requires downloading 3 different UNIX command files off of the internet. If you go to the URL it provides, it doesn't work.

    Summary

    Horrible product... not worth the $15 dollars.

    "Terrific"

    June 27, 2006   |   By ugmold

    Version: ffmpegX 0.0.9w

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This was a little daunting at first but it was only because of my lack of knowledge of the many video formats etc out there. After some experiments I have learned to love this application and paid/registered it. I still can't seem to get .srt files to work however...more experimenting.

    "It works as you'd expect it to"

    May 03, 2006   |   By marco.soave

    Version: ffmpegX 0.0.9w

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    FFMPEG is a pretty straightforward and easy to use product that works as you would expect it to do. It could be either used in a very simple way (convert file type A into type B) but has also the potential to allow you to do many more things if you wish to and if you can be bothered to go through the manual (convert to this or that type of bit-rate, join files into one, sub-titles, resize the screen, etc). So it is really everybody's cup of tea, from the occasional user to the more advanced one.

    "Essential Mac cinema tool in the field/studio."

    April 29, 2006   |   By montea

    Version: ffmpegX 0.0.9w

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    ffmpegX (current and past versions), and their support, are some of the best resources for serious Mac film makers available today. I do a lot of shooting in extremely rural places in North America and in Europe with JVC digital cameras using hard drives instead of tape. I download the shoots into Powerbook G4s. FfmpegX has, throughout it's evolution, allowed me to convert my takes into pristine formats for editing and compatible sharing.
    Major, the man behind the application stands behind his product, ffmpegX better than any other developer I have ever dealt with (I am sure you have experienced the all to familiar frustration of resolving app. issues with companies in the past).
    Major is always on top of all problems, the simple and the complex ones. His rapid e-mail responses with help are only, at most, a few hours away. (I truly think that he never sleeps!). He is proud of his ffmpegX and is caring enough to be there when needed by its users. Always.

    His evolution follows the leading edge of technology and he offers solutions way before the big companies do.

    If you are serious about keeping up with your digital film options, ffmegX
    and Major's support are the ways to go.

    "Very good and reasonably priced"

    April 29, 2006   |   By gevantry

    Version: ffmpegX 0.0.9w

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    While I'm happy with FFMPEG X's capabilities and results and recomment it to others, there are a couple of major iffitations:

    1. Installation of updates often requires additional updates to codecs, which can be time consuming. Therefore, I think it's best to avoid all but major updates.

    2. The Real libraries feature seldom seems to work well, if at all.

    Otherwise, it's certainly worth having as a tool.

    What's new in version 0.0.4i
    • 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 an ".ac3" file extension, it will be muxed as AC3 without conversion (i.e. you're muxing for DVD).
    • Added "Unspecified" video framerate value (will use same value as source). Can be used only when encoding to DivX or fast MPEG-1 (not MPEG-1 VCD or MPEG-2).
    • Added "GOP Headers" checkbox in the VCD/SVCD tab to insert a sequence header at the start of every GOP. This should only be used if your player need it to support fast forward/rewind.
    • The image size fields are always enabled to allow to input changes even while using preset autosize values.
    • The dialog sheet "Processing has been launched in background on a new terminal window" has been removed. No more icon bouncing in the dock.
