    I've been a user of Visual Hub for a solid 5 years, but sadly this program seems to be finally broken by Lion. (Gold Master 11A511) I have been using it for so long, simply because I can't find anything that converts XVID files and burns them to DVD as well. I have been looking for a replacement for a while now, and finally I really need one. Can someone please recommend a replacement program for me? It would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance. :)

    I don’t know about the burning to DVD but have you tried MPEG Streamclip?

    To burn to DVDs I use Toast so maybe if there isn’t an all in one program you may have to do it with two?

    MPEG Streamclip is free though so you would only be paying for Toast.

    I have tried Toast, but it is such a heavy an bloated application. I am planning on giving "Burn" another shot, but it has never properly worked for me.

    Can skysoft convert an avi to video_ts file and burn it as well?

    Toast is the most bloated app I have ever used. It takes longer to launch than any other app that I have ever used. It's still has some of the same basic little bugs from version 8 to 11. I started using it at version 3.5.x It's a perfect example of what happens when a PC company buys Mac software.

    VisualHub was/is one of the greatest video apps ever made. Simple GUI with plenty of advanced options. I was bummed when I launched it on lion and it wouldn't work.

    While not a replacement for visualhub, no video features, Disco burning app is now free.

    VH fix for Lion

    If the problem you encountered in Lion was VH not recognizing your registration info the author provided a zip package containing 3 scpt files that need to be replaced within the app.
    You can d/l it here:

    Well, that sort of works for me. It no longer asks for the registration code. But when I load up a m4v or mkv file, then click on "Start", well nothing happens. I was so happy for like 30 seconds.

    BTW, I am running Mountain Lion.
