    Hey y' all!

    A little help here please? I'm practically at my wits' end looking for a MAC OSX freeware converter for both audio (WMA, MP3, etc.) and video (DAT, AVI, etc.). Got any ideas? That'll be sweet! Thanks!

    I'm curious why would you want to convert MP3 since it can be natively played by OS X and to what format?

    You just need one program, VLC at http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ . It can read WMA and WMV's but only unprotected ones, read virtually any other format in audio and video, and you can convert to almost any format by using VLC's handy dandy Streaming and Exporting Wizard... Happy converting...

    For DVDs, handbrake.

    Greetings MUGgers!

    I'm not sure which converter to get and I'm not sure if the ones specified in this thread are the ones I'm looking for. Is there a Total Video Converter version for Mac? One where I can convert any video format to: .avi, .mov, .mp4, .flv, etc etc etc. I'm not looking for video converters only for iPod but for every video format, as wide as possible.

    And isn't iSquit just for ipod video converting?

    Thanks!

    are you burning it as data or are you burning it as VCD/DVD Video?

    There's visualhub, iSquint's big brother.
