The vast selection of free 3rd party applications available for Mac OS X always surprises people. Among that abundance of software is a collection of free Mac video converters which can cover nearly any situation you could find yourself in.
So you’re sitting there with a video file you can’t use because it’s stuck in a format not recognisable by the editing program you’re using. Don’t go looking for an expensive piece of software you may only use a handful of times. Instead, take a look at our top pick Mac video conversion tool which is completely free and surprisingly full-featured.
Originally only a DVD ripping tool, Handbrake evolved into more of a universal video converter with its most recent release. Now it can handle pretty much anything you throw at it and then spit it back out in a new format. It’s well-polished, solid, reliable, and just an overall pleasure to use.
Version 0.9.3 compatible with Mac OS X 10.5
