Welcome to the home of EmmGunn, where you'll find some Mac OS X tools for the editing and conversion of video files. All applications have a simplified interface for easy conversions, with a focus on speed. Here is a summary of the applications that you'll find at this site:
First there was MoKgVm2DVD. Its features were then expanded to create MKVtools 2. Now MKVtools 2 has been split into the VIDEOtoolbox Suit of Applications containing the following:
You can register an individual application, or if desired, you can register for the whole suite of tools.
Why was MKVtools 2 split into separate applications?
This is the most frequently asked question from current users of MKVtools 2. Unfortunately, due to the differences in the creation, editing and uses of MP4's, AVI's and MKV's, the interface and the functionality of MKVtools 2 was heading down the road toward bloat. The goal has always been to create a simple to use application with intuitive interface, that requires a minimal amount of user settings. As the feature set evolved, this has proved to be increasingly difficult within one application, and so the decision was made to transform the individual application into a group of tools - the VIDEOtoolbox suite.
Think of the entire VIDEOtoolbox suite as the upgrade for MKVtools 2. Though you can always choose to upgrade to just one of the apps in VIDEOtoolbox (or for that matter just stick with MKVtools 2), the suite will give you all the functionality of MKVtools 2 with updated features like presets, watch folders, and added MKV editing capabilities. This "suite" format also has the advantage that functionality can be added in the form of individual apps instead of having to clutter up the interface of the current apps. For example, the next in the series of tools to be added to the VIDEOtoolbox suite will give users the ability to easily convert ASS/SSA subtitles to SRT subtiles using a simple interface designed specifically for the task, instead of squeezed into one of the current applications.
The following applications are no longer being developed but are still available for users looking to keep their older versions up to date:
