dmMediaConverter is a crossplatform FFmpeg frontend (GUI) exposing some of its features. It is intended to be simple and easy to use but also to be able to achieve complex tasks. I have inspired myself from a lot of media converters like Handbrake, WinFF and MkvMergeGui. One feature was lacking from most of them, video stream copy (pass-through), that made me build this.

Hi, i am writing here to see if there is enough interest from you to build a native mac application. In the mean time, please install WineBottler (or wine for mac) and then download the win32 version of the app from my site and run it.

So, does it run well for you? Do you need a native app?
i don't own any mac devices so it will be a little tricky for me.
Also, any kind of feedback it is kindly appreciated.

Thank you and i hope that i didn't post in the wrong section :p

UPDATE: Now a NATIVE version is available on Amazon for 5$.

First I saw this....must have missed the initial announcement. I don't consider running this under Wine on a Mac as being truly "cross-platform"....I'd love to see a native Mac app. But since I did miss this initially, I've bought iFFmpeg.

You need to update the following info on Amazon:

System Requirements
Platform: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

I see no mention of 10.11 or 10.12
