    Hi everyone,

    I've searched this forum and haven't found what I was looking for so I guess I'll just have to ask. Are there any free(as in beer) mpg/avi to mp4 converter for Mac OS X? I'm currently using mp4converter but apparently it isn't free and the trial version only converts the first 5 minutes of the source video.

    Pointers, anyone? Thanks in advance.

    HandBrake/MediaFork only scans for DVDs and DVD-formatted folders, right?

    Handbrake Lite normally scans for DVDs and its ilk. Not sure about the full version though. iSquint is designed to convert any file for the video iPod though it has an option for TV viewing optimization-I haven't tried this option out as of yet.

    try IMToo video converter...in my experience IMToo produced the best quality video for my ipod video. Its like dvd video for ipod due to the sharpness and good sound quality. I also tried iSquint but the video quality is not that good...

    I use both Handbrake and iSquint..however, in my experience, Handbrake can't convert those really compressed DVDs...anything i might be doing wrong? :)
