EasyWMV

Since Apple decided to remove built-in third-party plug-in support from QuickTime, I've been dogged, like most Mac Users, with file format conversion trammels! Not any more!

EasyWMV, a Universal binary, can be used to convert or resize wmv, asf, avi, mp4, mpg, mpeg, mov, m4v, flv, nsv, swf and vob video files so that they can be used with QuickTime Player, iPod and iPhone. EasyWMV has a very simple user interface, supports drag and drop as well as batch processing. EasyWMV can export video to mpeg and mpeg4 formats and can optimize videos for playback on iPod.

Main Features:

*Input formats: asf, avi, flv, m4v, mp4, mpg, mpeg, mov, nsv, swf, vob, wmv
*Output formats: mp4, mpg
*Manual or automatic audio bit rate selection from source (32-320kbps)
*Video encoding up to 2.5mbit/s
*Support H.264 encoding for mpeg4 video
*Creates video for QuickTime, Apple TV, iPod, and iPhone
*Batch processing
*Optimized for multi-core and multi-processor systems
*Drag & drop of files and folders
*iTunes integration

EasyWMV is already an integral part of my video toolbox alongside QuickTime Pro and Flip4Mac! I can't recommend this fledgling application highly enough and, once you've downloaded the demo, I'm sure that you'll agree it's worth $15 (£7.50 GBP)!
