iSquint: An Oldy But A Goody
iSquint is an application for the Mac that allows you to convert any video file to a simple mp4 that is playable on your portable device, like the iPod.
1) Simply just drag the file that you want to see available in your iTunes or on your iPod into the app,
2) Select your level of quality from "Tiny" to "Go Nuts,"
3) Decide whether you want to optimize the file for your iPod or AppleTV,
4) Choose whether you want it in your iTunes and select whether or not you would like H.246 encoding for higher quality,
5) and then click start
Your file will be saved in whichever directory you select from the dropdown in the simple program.
Its really neat if you have a video iPod and want to watch your favorite videos without the screen size being all messed up.
The program runs pretty fast and can convert in real time on a 1.5GHz G4. On an Intel Mac the program can convert up to 5X realtime!
The program also works in 7 different languages: English, German, French, Chinese Simp, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese BR, Swedish
