This is my GUI for the powerful, open source multimedia-converter ffmpeg, which supports a variety of audio, video and container formats!
As a console application ffmpeg exclusively works with a huge number of parameters and you don't even know the most important ones off by heart. Even if you do, it is a rocky road to do your conversions manually or via BAT files. A long and unconfortable procedure.
That's why I created SmartFFmpeg! A GUI, that lets you configure most of the important parameters visually and furthermore provides batch processing to enable you to convert multiple files in a row with the same or individual settings. Each task applies the current settings when being added and can be given different ones afterwards.
A key feature of SmartFFmpeg is the preset-management. Presets let you store conbinations of parameters for certain conversion jobs like
Looking up parameters is history now, they stand by to be selected by you!
- extract the audio-track of any video
- audio-only conversion to MP3
- convert videos for mobile devices, PSP, iPod, cellphone...
- and much more

- Individualisation by offering separate settings per task (select from file list)
- Pre-defined, extensible presets, that store all settings for frequent conversion jobs

- Extensibility of the conversion settings by any ffmpeg parameter into free input- and output-text fields
- Preconfiguration of output-filename
