ViddyUp the iPod and Apple TV video Wrangler

Wondering how to make the most of your video-capable iPod® or Apple TV™? Looking for an easy way to make your video clips work with iTunes®? Need a general-purpose MPEG-4 and H.264 export tool?


is the easy way to load up your iPod or Apple TV with home movies or content from around the web. Just drag your clips to the ViddyUp! window, tweak a setting or two (if you want), then let ViddyUp! get to work. iPod or Apple TV-friendly versions of each clip show up in a special playlist in iTunes, ready to sync.

ViddyUp! easily handles dozens of files with its batch processing mode and even works with MPEG muxed audio. And, with the Custom encoding option, you’re free to create MPEG-4 and H.264 files for iPod, Apple TV, iTunes, Podcasts or the Web. It’s up to you!

Reggie Asworth’s Applications (AppDelete/VidConvert)

This post is supposed to be just about AppDelete, but when browsing the web, I noted that the developer also has another conversion app that works on the PowerPC so this became a double post!

AppDelete is shareware but it definitely does the job! If you are looking for a very easy to use “drag and drop” uninstaller that also allows you to browse your application, screensaver, widgets, as you uninstall, then I think this is a great option for you.  It properly uninstalls the applications without leaving any files behind. (Trial version will give you 5 uses)

AppDelete 3.2.8 ($7.99) PowerPC – 10.5 Leopard –

AppDelete 2.2.4 ($5.00) PowerPC – 10.3/10.4 Panther/Tiger –

VidConvert also follows the same layout, it’s very easy to use and the best feature is the “drag and drop”.  It will convert any type of video into one of the many popular formats of today. (Supported output – iPhone, iPad, iPod, Retina, Apple TV, QuickTime, .mp4, .avi, DivX, Xvid, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, DVD (.vob), Windows Media, Flash, Matroska (.mkv), Theora (.ogg), .m4a, .mp3, .aiff, .wav, .wma, .ac3) (Trial version will convert only 3 minutes sample videos.

AirFlick (AirPlay Mirroring) on PowerPC and Intel Dual Core :)

Most PowerPC users and some Intel Dual Core users really would like to have AirPlay to mirror Videos to our Apple TV without having to convert and sync with iTunes.

AirFlick is a beta version and there is no support but it works (sort of) on PowerPC.  AirFlick is a free application that allows you to stream videos from your computer to Apple TV.  Apparently, you’re also supposed to be able to stream videos from any URL address.

The fact is I recently updated my Apple TV and then I tried to use this application and for some reason it does not recognize my Apple TV, likely because of my upgrade.  But I saw some comments online which indicate that it seems to be working for some of you, but some users experience challenges with the URL streaming feature.  So if you guys want to try out AirFlick and share your experience if worked or not, please feel free to post on comments for the rest of us.  We appreciate your feedback!

If your looking for good convert/encode software I would say to check out iFFmpeg, it’s simple to use like most of Apple applications:  drag and drop!   gosh I so love this system of drag and drop.  I have to confess that I was windows user a looooooooong time ago, but back to what really matters here!!   There are so many formats that this app supports, that having this app saved in your application folder would be a safe thing to do.  Just to mention a few formats you can convert/encode:  Apple TV, iPhone, iPod, iPad, mp4, wii, avi, PS3, PSP, X360, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, mov, mpg, AAC, WAV, OGG, FLAC, M4A, WMA, REALMEDIA, RM, MKV, FLV, VOB, DV NTSC, etc.  Check the picture bellow for full list.
