Review by FastHand on Dec 12, 2019 Version: 2.1.0 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Version 2.1.0 portable rejects everything I throw at it. Version 2.0 works fine except for preset lists not saving properly. Bad is going to worse..

Review by MFSlakki on Oct 28, 2019 Version: 2.1.0 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 2/10 Functionality: 2/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 2/10

Very good gui for ffmpeg, exactly what I was looking for. Wouldn't mind an option to disable the log file output but other than that I can't complain.

Review by Connor on Sep 17, 2019 Version: 1.6.9 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Love this app. However, theis version 1.6.9 fails to save new presets properly. I reverted to 1.6.7. Hope it gets fixed quickly, only because I have started to rely on it.


Review by Mark_SM on Aug 25, 2019 Version: 1.6.9 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

I've tried some ffmpeg GUIs in the past and while some were decent, most of them were too complicated and bloated or never let you specify your own parameters to ffmpeg, I'm happy to report that this is not the case here.

This one is very flexible and powerful while at the same time packing a nice wizard that can guide you through the options without knowing any complicated commands, perfect for novice users! Which makes it good for new people and seasoned veterans of the CLI. This is turning into my go-to converter now, I'm excited to see its development continue, maybe even a linux version in the future? whatever it is I'm sure it'll make it even better.
