This seems like a nice software that doesnt work with rosetta and would be nice if someone could compile it for x86 instead.


Update: If you know any other software that is good and works please let us know.

handbrake is the fastest and most simple to use but i prefer to use dvision which has a far better image and more codecs (divx3/4, xvid) but is slow on low end machines. recommended on a real mac is dual g4.

ffmpegx also exists but i don't like it very much. many functions but too much complicated so you loose time. its advantage is to be able to encode mpeg1/2 and other things.
