MPEG Streamclip

Version: 1.9.2 || Release Date: 2008-08-09 || License: Freeware App Owner: fritzscorner

You can use MPEG Streamclip to: open most movie formats including MPEG files or transport streams; play them at full screen; edit them with Cut, Copy, Paste, and Trim; set In/Out points and convert them into muxed or demuxed files, or export them to QuickTime, AVI, DV and MPEG-4 files with more than professional quality, so you can easily import them in Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Toast 6 or 7, and use them with many other applications or devices.

Can also be used to rotate clips that have been shot with the camera turned upside-down or sideways (this is a setting in the Export dialog)

I'm with rolfaster, great for editing out commercials.

I just did a dirty test to see if it would handle editing m4v videos; surprisingly it does a great job. I'm going to be using this to edit commercials from my eyetv recordings

I know that eyetv has a built in way to do this, but i have eyetv set to transcode to iPod right after recording (usually so i can let it run over night i have a super slow computer doing the legwork for it) and now i can edit the transcoded files! stoked.

I can highly recommend streamclip for editing and transcoding mpeg files from HD, camcorder or DVD. Quick and efficient.

There are some .ts streams that I can't open with it: it just uses 100% cpu and never finishes.
Strangely, I can open other .ts streams from the same source (Freebox, an adsl tv box).

With MPEG Streamclip you can also demux audio from an DVD. It's a little work, but the only way (I found) to get the audio from a DVD.

Streamclip is great - my video camera (a JVC something) records straight to a microdrive in some MPEG2 format. Streamclip lets me convert it to something useful to go play in FCP/iMovie with.

Great for editing commercials out of stuff that you've recorded via dvd. Very useful!

I love Streamclip. It'll do just about anything. The UI leaves a bit to be desired, but the functionality is great. Scaling, de-interlacing and encoding quality is very good, and it's fast. Batch processing works well. Oh - and it's cross-platform!

I use this app nearly every day.
