3g2, 3gp, asf, avi, flv, mov, mp4, mxf, rm, swf
What's New in Version 20111102.0
Fixed bug that caused conversion failures for input files with capitalized file extensions (ex. VOB).
Fixed bug that caused crash for some input files with unicode characters in their name.
Improved bug reporting.
So I'm not sure why some of the reviews are so terrible, BUT I'll throw in my 2 cents. I needed the app so that I could convert some VOB files to MOV and import them into iMovie. Worked perfectly in that sense. Some drawbacks are that 1) you can't see the progress of your conversion and 2) the conversion process is rather slow.
Other than that, if you're looking for an app to convert VOB files so that you can create a mac movie project then this is an affordable and efficacious app.
I wasn't expecting much for 99 cents, but I needed a simple tool to convert .asf files (from an OLD video camera) to .mp4
This did the job and the quality is as good as the originals. Much better than the output from VLC...
I'll be keeping this in my toolbox for a while.
One suggestion. The progress bar doesn't update, making users wonder if the app is even running. Please fix that and you'll have a five-star app!
Bugs not fixed!
Save your $10 bucks, folks. I have a .vob file, which this app claims to support, and have attempted to convert it to just about every format available. It converts, but not to anything that will play. Every single conversion, when I try to view, says it is an unsupported format. I thought maybe the file was corrupted, but was able to convert with no problem using my old busted PC and Nero software. There is probably a work-around, but it isn't worth the trouble.
