If you enjoy the conversion power and versatility of the FFmpeg but you also want a user-friendly interface that allows you to handle this power, then iFFmpeg is the app for you.
Simple and clean user interface
Thanks to iFFmpeg, you can easily convert and edit multiple media files formats such as MPEG4, H264, H265, Matroska, DNxHD, PRORES, MPEG TS, DVVideo, MPEG TS, FLV, MPEG TS, AVI, OOG, Theora, GIF, VOB, GFX, MXF and many more.
It is also worth mentioning the added support for H.265 (HVEC, short for High Efficiency Video Coding), a video compression standard designed to offer double the data compression ratio compared to predecessor, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, while providing the same level of video quality.
Consequently, H.265 can be used to deliver highly improved video quality at the same bit rate, as well as 8K UHD footage and videos with a resolution at up to 8192x4320. If you want to learn more about it, you can read an in-depth tutorial about H.265 encoding on our site.
From the top toolbar you can add or remove files, access the Settings window, start, pause or stop the conversion process, merge multiple files, make and burn ISOs, extract frames from a video and even create videos using sequential images.
Customizable Presets and support for subtitles
In addition, iFFmpeg makes it simple to choose between the Concat pass-thru, Complex Filter and Concat merging methods in order to make sure that the output videos are as high quality as possible.
Furthermore, iFFmpeg offers support for both soft subtitles and hard burning subtitle for most provided container. On top of that, iFFmpeg comes with numerous pre-defined encoding profiles for iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV, Xbox One, Wii-U and Android devices.
You can also use the conversion profiles for Vimeo, Facebook and Youtube if you want to share the output video.
Basic video editing tools and filters
The Settings window helps you add watermarks, crop and rotate your video, change the bitrate preset, trim your footage, scale the image, deinterlace and telecine the film, adjust the colors, brightness and contrast.
By accessing the Preferences window you can configure iFFmpeg to use all available CPU cores, adjust the HUD transparency level and set the file path for the FFmpeg binary. Since iFFmpeg is just a GUI, it goes without saying that you need to manually download and install FFmpeg before using iFFmpeg.
