    I've been using iSquint exclusively to convert my videos for Apple TV, and don't have a problem with it. My question is why no one here ever mentions it. Is Visual Hub that much superior? It's made by the same people, has an Optimize for TV setting, and is really fast.

    I think this says enough. I use VisualHub for more than just Apple TV conversions.

    I had problems when transcoding using VisualHub into MP4. It would appear to rip OK, but if I copied the movie into my iTunes library - then try to add album art work or any other information, iTunes would freeze. The conversion wouldn't play back on my iPhone either.

    I just use iSquint now. VisualHub has a whole bunch of stuff in it that I don't need really

    My wife and I love iSquint -- we use it two ways:
    -- we have a flip video camera... and it produces AVI files... we convert to .mp4 files. We just returned from vacation with 50+ snippets from the camera... and used iSquint to convert .mp4 (then dropped them into iMovie).
    -- when we want to compress an iMovie project... we "share" in DV format and then use iSquint to compress to h.264 (its muuuch faster than Apple's compression for iMovie)

    Nice program :)
