    I'm looking to convert some video into an AppleTV friendly format. I know about VisualHub, anything else that is similar? So far VisualHub seems pretty decent but their demo is pretty limited so I'd like to try some other software before I choose to plunk down my cash. Thanks.

    VisualHub is amazing.

    I tried a lot of different tools on both Mac and PC to do video format conversions. VisualHub is the only one that consistently worked, handled nearly every format I threw at it, and it's lightening fast.

    I highly recommend it.

    VisualHub is actually only a front-end application for FFMpeg, which is free. There's a Mac OS X application called "FFMpegX" that provides the same functionality (Because it's FFMpeg) for free. The downside is, it's kind of a pain to use until you get used to it. Find it over at MacUpdate.com.

    I use VisualHub myself, but have spent many hours working with FFMpegX in the past. If easy transcoding is what you need, VisualHub is the best place to look

    I think I remember playing with FFMpegX back in Tiger early last year. From what I recall it was a PITA to work with. Anyone else got something? Looks like VH might take the cake.

    I've messed with VisualHub, FFMPeg, Stomp, and the works. VisualHub does take the cake.
