We've hit the Turbo button on Smart Converter and Smart Converter Pro!

The 'smarts' behind Smart Converter mean that we often don't need to convert a video when going from one format to another. This gives you lightning fast conversions.

For times when we can't do a 'smart' conversion, we have to do things the regular way, which can take a while.

Up until now Smart Converter only used one core of your CPU in regular mode. Now Smart Converter and Smart Converter Pro use all cores of your CPU. With all new Macs now shipping with Quad Core CPUs, multi-core processing means that Smart Converter will go at least 4 times as fast for regular conversions.

This update also includes a few bug fixes and a re-vamp of the way we handle Flash Video conversions. Any problems you might have had with flv video will now be fixed.

Youtube and Vimeo

Thanks for making Smart Converter Pro, makes my life a whole load easier!

A really great addition would be a YouTube SD/HD and Vimeo SD/HD preset.
That would finish this great app off nicely.

New presets

Thanks for the suggestion. We'll look to add these in for the next update.


really your app is fabolous. the question is when r you going to include subtitles on smart converter??? do you have another app to solve this?


Thanks - glad you like Smart Converter :)

We will be adding subtitles and audio track selection, but it's still a couple of months away because of other apps that we are in the middle of developing.

MKV conversion error

Since updating SCP I keep getting the same error message when trying to convert MKV for use with Apple TV files. The program doesn't seem to have any issues with other files such as AVI or WMV.

MKV problem

We have a new version out which will be out on the Mac App Store in the next week which may fix this. If this doesn't work, please send in the log file and a link to the file in question to support@shedworx.com

Issue with new SCP

I drag file into SCP to convert but the convert button remains grayed out. I really want this to work for me and for clients, but I've had a series of show stoppers like this one.

No conversions

Not really sure what's causing this. Please send in a link to the problem file/s to support@shedworx.com
