It's up to 5 times faster than Apple's method, works well with AVIs and MPEGs, and it's infinitely free-er.

It's also rather easy.

On a moderate Mac iSquint can convert most video files to iPod-screen-sized videos in realtime.

Give it your file, choose "TV screen" or "iPod screen" size, set your quality, and away you go. Depending on a few factors, a 20 minute video will take up anywhere from 50-150MB of disk space.

It's many times faster than QuickTime Pro, works with almost all popular video formats, and it's infinitely free-er.

It's also really easy. Just drag in your file, and click Start. You can also choose "TV" or "iPod" size, set your quality, or even go all-out by playing in the Advanced drawer.

On a 1.5GHz G4, iSquint can convert most video files to iPod-screen-sized videos in realtime. Depending on a few factors, a 20 minute video will take up anywhere from 50-150MB of disk space.

Features:

Fast MPEG-4 and H.264 conversion from almost every popular video format.
QuickTime Pro and DivX codec not required.
DivX/XviD AVIs, all forms of MPEG video, and many other formats QuickTime chokes on are supported.
WMV 7/8 files supported. With the Flip4Mac plugin, all WMV files are supported - including WMV9.
Batch Processing of multiple files. Save in-place, or to a different folder.
Automatic aspect ratio detection. Anamorphic MPEG-2 and HDV detected too.
Quality slider. Leave it as is to trust me, mess with it if you know better, or completely ignore it and play with the...
Advanced settings drawer. Change every aspect of the conversion process.
Best Help menu ever.


What's New:

MPEG-in-.mov files now supported. Very few converters, QuickTime-based or otherwise, can correctly deal with this type of file.
Replaced nearly the entire filenaming code to better handle non-standard characters.
Brought QuickTime decoding back to iSquint 1.3 speeds (still with 1.4's brightness tweak).
Specifying a framerate in the Advanced drawer while using H.264 Encoding works again (did you even notice that it didn't?).
Improvements to displaying the log file.
Fixed some 10.3.9 issues.
