As you may know, iSquint has been discontinued and released as source code with the new name of PunyVid. I’ve compiled it and you can download it here. Seems to work OK for me, but I haven’t tested it that heavily. It’s a simple app for converting video into MP4, suitable for playing on an iPod/iPhone.
For some reason I couldn’t get the other app (FilmRedux, formerly known as VisualHub) to work properly. I’ll try that another time.
I just read that Techspansion is closing down, and open-sourcing the applications. I never really used any of these, as they weren’t free, and I felt that I could do most of what they did with ffmpeg anyway. But from the trial versions, they looked pretty good. I guess that to begin with, you’ll need to be reasonably technically minded to compile and use them. But presumably someone will create a binary distribution to make them more widely available. Hey, I might even try it myself.
And as noted on one of the O’Reilly blogs, the way the developer has handled the discontinuation of these products is hugely commendable.
