Editors' Review

iFFmpeg converts videos to a wide variety of formats, turning your source audio and video into the right file format for any other application you want to use. iFFmpeg has a large selection of presets and codecs to choose from.


Intuitive interface: Learning how to use the program is very easy. A quick look at the buttons on the toolbar told us everything we needed to understand about how to add a file for conversion, select a format, and initialize the conversion.

Effective conversion: We tested multiple conversions on the devices we were optimizing the files for. The results were universally good, and all the files worked as intended.

Extensive preset library: An extensive library of presets takes a lot of the guesswork out of conversion, especially when you're converting files for use on specific types of devices. Just select the type of device from a drop-down menu and then start the conversion.


Overly complicated installation: After installation, you get complicated instructions that require you either to compile your own binary to add to the program, or to download code from an external site. Neither of the links provided in the help file link directly to an easy download option, either, and instead offered more options and long file lists without a clear indication of which to use. Just getting the program to actually work requires great effort.

Bottom Line

iFFmpeg is very effective once you get it installed. Unfortunately, the difficult installation might be a barrier to many people. If you can get the program working, it is an intuitive and effective video format converter.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of iFFmpeg for Mac 4.6.1.
