    Those are unofficial releases of it. It's open source, so anyone could rebuild it latest version for nearly any platform.

    I wonder, if that means, that the codecs get better as well.

    As the version 0.9.5 includes updated x264 & ffmepg libs, you can expect small improves on the codecs, but nothing major. Building the latest version of Handbrake would require some work as the Mac OS X part is no longer supporting PPC Mac and old API. Could maybe be done.

    Personally, although I have this unofficial build on my G5, I don't do much video conversion on it as it is almost as fast (or sometime slower) than my Macbook Pro (which can use an updated Handbrake).

    Does anyone know of a video converter that will convert .mts files to .mp4 or other video files compatible with iMovie 6? Thanks for any help! :apple:

    According to this thread, it's possible in iMovie:

    Dronecatcher is partly wrong, if this is for PowerPC. It works only under Intel (did not try iMovie 8 under PPC, though).

    I tried Handbrake and iMovieHD (5 and 6).

    Did not try under 10.4.11 PowerPC

    Under 10.5.8 PowerPC:
    - iMovie = NO
    - Handbrake, without problems, result is a h.264 or (ffmpeg) divx file as you choose (mov/mp4)! (reading the file takes a bit long)

    Be sure to get 9.0.4 at least under 10.5.

    Avidemux 2.5.3 will probably lead you more to what you need/expect (it has several other formats, i.e. codec (h.264, divx, sorensen...) and containers (mp4, avi, mov)). I only found a Windows guide quickly http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/...th-avidemux-edit-and-convert-any-video-format

    If your files are from one TV show, but scattered in parts and you want to glue them together, before putting them into iMovie, then you need Avidemux 2.5.3, too.

    Be sure to choose that you want to save video+audio and the safest way is to either save it as TS or PS again, when you want to use Handbrake (with its more recent h.264 and divx codec than avidemux) (*ps/*mps will be readable by VLC video player application much easier than *ts/*mts and you can use PS as .vob files for a DVD). iMovie 5 can't handle *mts nor *ps from what I have tested (didn't try 6, but I would expect it doesn't since ts/ps is mpeg2 and Quicktime doesn't come with mpeg2 unless you have Quicktime Pro and iMovie uses Quicktime under the hood).

    If you decide to export *mts via avidemux to *mps or *ps you will get an unreadable icon. Append .mpeg manually and it will be readable by VLC.
