* FFMPEGX (0.0.9y)- PowerPC Friendly – 10.3 Panther / 10.4 Tiger / 10.5 Leopard. Nice and easy to use converter. Download Here . Convert you DVDs to DivX, MPEG, VCD and XVCD.
It’s always important to have access to a good application that easily converts your video and audio. iConvertX not only completes the conversion quickly, but anyone can figure how how to work it. It’s as easy as drag and drop…so even your grandmother could figure out how to work it!
iConvertX 4.0.1 (Shareware $3.75) (First 5 times are free to try) http://joris-vervuurt.com/page4/page4.php – PowerPC friendly, runs on 10.5 / 10.4 / 10.3 – Leopard / Tiger / Panther.
P.S.: It seems Joris Vervuurt also developed iTubex, an application that allows you to download videos from Youtube. As far as I can see, version 8.0 will work on PowerPC running 10.5, but unfortunately I didn’t find a safe source to download the application, to do my tests. If you guys would like to share the results or links, please feel free to drop us a line to let us know how it worked for you!
List of format that will convert:
.mp4 / .flv / .3gp / .pct / .m4v / .avi / .dv / .mov / .flc / .qtl / .wav / .aiff / .au / .moov / .mp3 / .swa / .m1a / .mp2 / .mpa / .mpeg / .mpg / .m1s / .mpm / .divx / .mkv / .gvi / .vp6 / .vfw
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)

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.

Right now for Intel Mac can download DivX8 but PowerPC Macs can still install DivX6. It’s good software to have installed because it plays all DivX videos and MKV formats. You can convert files ending in one of the following extensions: .mov, .mpg, .mpeg, .mp4, .avi and divx, by just dragging and dropping! One nice feature of DivX is the conversion profile. The profiles are predefined templates where you choose the dimensions you want, select the video bitrate and other conversion settings that are appropriate for various playback devices. There are 5 standard profiles, handheld, portable, home theater, high def and custom.
