    What is the best video converter to use with mac, that will not degrade the quality much. I find some takes away from the quality alot and it makes it not good to use when I make a dvd for my family. I use Visualhub thinking it was best to use. Also another problem I am having is when I try to import a movie that is in mpeg , or avi or mov format, imovie o8 will not recognize it. I have to convert it to DV format which when I convert it with Visualhub it degrades the quality, making it not as clear. Is there a fix for this or what are your suggestions?

    You could try MPEGStreamclip, it's a free app. As far as converting to .dv, try converting your .avi and .mov files to .mp4 using Visual hub, and set the settings to go crazy for quality, and see if you can import the .mp4 into iMovie...I know it works in 06, not sure about 08.

    Best,

    I tried Handbrake to conver ac3 to either mp3 or mp4, it would not allow me to input ac3. I know this is not what the OP is asking about but, just a heads up.
