Are you looking for a complete video encoding solution. The lesser known MPEG Streamclip is a very good program to work with.
MPEG Streamclip is more than a simple encoder. It also works as an editor, converter and player. The application supports almost any video format and can export converted files to any format of your choice.
Despite its slightly unintuitive interface, which might put off first time users, MPEG Streamclip is actually relatively easy to use. Just select your file, choose a compression type and let MPEG Streamclip do the rest. You'll find a wide choice of settings which will let you adjust quality, encoding level and bitrate of videos among other things.
MPEG Streamclip can handle multiple audio tracks and works with files larger than 4GB, although you'll have to make sure these are cut up in smaller segments.
If you are on DVB, you'll be glad to know it supports a number of DreamBox and TopField models. MPEG-2 devices can also be easily connected and used with MPEG Streamclip.
Despite its slightly unintuitive user interface, MPEG Streamclip is a highly effective and versatile video encoder and converter.
