Thank you! Not the most intuitive gui ... but I got along fine ... and it did what i needed when all others were bait and switching me to frustration .... I recorded an Amazon streaming video and needed to clip the start and end before using VideoMake to put it onto a DVD ... This worked the Charm!

Muchos Nachos!

Seems to be an issue using the MPEG2 component from Apple. I find it working with other apps but MPEG Streamclip seems to have trouble playing the MPEG2 file (although it does seems to convert the file to H264/AAC in a .mp4 container just fine. I'll chalk it up to this being a beta version. Earlier versions have been an essential part of my "conversion toolbox" and I see no reason why I'd want to exclude it. I'm confident the beta glitches will be ironed out.

Just install the codec manually in System/Library/Quicktime and forget the installer app provided by Squared5. (Hint: Right-click on the MPEG2 Codec installer from Apple, "Show Package Contents", find the "Archive.pax.gz" file, decompress it and you'll find the codec contained therein.)

As for the luddites who decry the use of QuickTime, my response is: Get over it; H264/AAC is mainstream (ever heard of Bluray?), is part of QuickTime, and the new H265 codec which will be coming down the pike for use next year will also be included in the QuickTime standard (which is not just Apple).

Frankly, not including VLC (which has all codecs self-contained), the best way I can get reliable, lip-sync'd playback of videos on XP and Win7 PCs is to use QuickTime and H264-based media.

I am not a fan of anything "Apple" and this application relies on Apple Quicktime being installed on your computer. I do not, will not ever, install Quicktime on my computer (Why should I when there are SO many superior alternatives?). I did not get past the notification of the Quicktime requirement, hence the low scores...

If you are using a Mac with OSX Lion I think you would do better to forget about this tool. It requires installation of the Utility MPEG2 Component, but this is already built into Lion. Contrary to statements made by the developer through this page, the app provided with the 1.9.3b7 release to force this installation in Lion simply doesn't work as far as I can tell. Basically, it will try to make the installation and fail because it finds Lion on the installation disk.

I would not recommend any Lion user wasting their time with this app as it now stands. I do realize I may be missing something about how to get this to work; however, the offered alternative to the Quicktime Decoder is the Alternative 1.81, which is a windows-only program.

This was literally the only tool I could use to work with a .VOB file I had recovered from a very old DVD. This VOB wouldn't play in any media player I tried except PowerDVD and it seemed to crash any converter instantly, especially DGIndex.exe. Anyway I used this app and used the convert to MPG option and now I have a perfectly playable and easily convertible .mpg that was extremely quick to extract.
