    Hello guys

    I'm looking for a video converter.. I found a trial of visual hub that kix butt, but i was wondering if their was an equivalent free ware version. Basically want to convert multiple formats to and from to any of the following : mp4, avi, dvd, fla, mpeg, rm, mp3.. something that will convert to whatever format.


    any suggestions would be mighty cool of ya...


    thx.

    Macbook Intel core duo 2 ghz processor, 1.25 gb of ram.

    ffmpegx is versatile universal format converter, from anything to anything.

    hey Clevin, i installed it but it doesn't seem to be encoding properly. The format changes, but the file size is 0... any idea what i'm doing wrong?

    ok... i followed the instructions, but...

    the only file that didn't install properly was "mpeg2enc.intel"... opens up as an excel file for some reason. What should I associate this file with?

    just download it to ur hard drive, and at the ffmpegx codec installation screen, choose the location u just put of the file, u don't need to associate it or open it with any application.

    ok, i want to try and uninstall / reinstall

    no add/remove programs in mac so i was told you simply delete from the application area.. i've just done that and reinstalled the ffmpegx dmg file again * after installing the mencoder and mplayer but the ffmpegx is popping up like i've never uninstalled it.

    is there a special way to uninstall this app?

    after uninstall the program, use spotlight to search for "ffmpegx" and delete any preference files u found.

    however, what happened?
