Download ffmpegX 0.0.9y-“Lion” r2 for OS X 10.7 to 10.14. Note: ffmpegX is not compatible with OS X 10.15 “Catalina”.

If you already installed ffmpegX before, with this version you are not required to reinstall a new version of the binaries. Just replace the application. If running over a previous install, the installer will pop up once. You not need to locate the binaries again if they are not marked in red, just enter your OSX password and the installer will update all your binaries for compatibility.

If you are installing ffmpegX for the first time, then you must also install the mencoder and mplayer binaries and the mpeg2enc binary. These binaries are Universal versions suitables for both PPC and Intel processors. Install the new binaries by following the procedure detailed below.

To install ffmpegX 0.0.9y for the first time, proceed as follows.

1) Make sure that your startup disk has no spaces or special characters in its name. Move any existing ffmpegX application to the trash. Open the .dmg disk image and copy the ffmpegX application to your Applications folder.

2) Run ffmpegX from your Applications folder.

  • Some Unix components will need installation. The self-installer window will appear telling you which components need to be installed. This operation will be done only once or in case of major updates of the binaries. You can also bring up the self-installer window manually at any moment by selecting “Install binaries” from the ffmpegX menu in the apple bar. The self installer window looks as follows:

  • Note: to use the new FLV metadata feature, you need to install the FLVTool2 component as explained here.
  • he mencoder, mplayer, mpeg2enc third-party components are not included in the ffmpegX application itself to comply with applicable laws and licensing terms, and you must download them first on your disk with a web browser. Use only the versions provided at the URL indicated in the installer window.

  • The mpeg2enc binary for ffmpegX 0.0.9x is available here (don’t click but use CTRL-click on link and then “Download link on disk”).
  • The mplayer and mencoder binaries for ffmpegX 0.0.9x are available here. Decompress the downloaded zip file by double-clicking the icon.

    Now locate the files you’ve just downloaded in the ffmpegX installer window by clicking the three “Locate..” buttons and selecting the appropriate files.

    Finally enter your Mac OSX login password, and click “Install” to install the components. You may now trash the files you have downloaded (as a copy will have been installed in /Library/Application Support/ffmpegX).

    You’re done ! Now if you like ffmpegX and find it useful, please register it.

    (Meaning that your encoded FLV with play with a progress bar in internet Flash video players) You need to install FLVTool2 by following these steps
  • Download FLVtool2 from http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/17497/flvtool2-1.0.6.tgz and decompress the package into a folder.
  • Open terminal.app
  • Type cd [drop the folder here] [press return key]
  • Type ruby setup.rb config [press return key]
  • Type ruby setup.rb setup [press return key]
  • Type sudo ruby setup.rb install [will require that you enter your login password] [press return key]
  • Done!
      If you want to encode from RealVideo sources with the mencoder engine, you should also install the reallibs package for ffmpegX 0.0.9. This package is now optional because of its additional install complexity. First go on the Helix distribution page by clicking this link. From the list of builds you should select the latest “macos-gcc3-pb” / “All clients” link. If there are no builds available for Mac, then try thisIn the following page you should accept twice a license agreement like in the following screenshot.

      Then you will access the page containing the download link:

      If there is no version for OSX available, then download the latest stable build of reallib from this link. NOTE: This reallib build is not compatible with Lion.

    ffmpegX is a Mac OS X graphic user interface designed to easily operate more than 20 powerful Unix open-source video and audio processing tools including ffmpeg the “hyper fast video and audio encoder” (http://ffmpeg.sf.net/), mpeg2enc the open-source mpeg-2 encoder and multiplexer (http://mjpeg.sf.net/MacOS/) and mencoder the mpeg-4 encoder with subtitles support (http://sf.net/projects/mplayerosx ).

    Please note: the ffmpegX project is not associated with the ffmpeg project, and support emails about ffmpegX should not be sent to the ffmpeg project !

    • As simple as 1.2.3 : Drop a file, choose a destination format, and click “Encode”.
    • Reads the following input formats: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DIVX, XviD, non-encrypted VOB and VIDEO_TS, Quicktime .MOV, .DV, .WAV, Real Audio, Real Video, H.263, MP4 H.264, PGM, YUV, PPM, AC3, PCM8/16 bits, mulaw/Alaw, WMA-1/2, SUN AU format, MP2, MP3, AAC, 3GP, FPS1, ALAC, and even more formats
    • Converts the above formats to DivX, AVI XviD, H.264 MP4, MOV, DV, 3GP, Sony PSP, MP2, MP3, AAC, AC3, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, VCD, CVD, SVCD, KVCD, KSVCD, DVD, KDVD and MPEG-TS with complete control over encoding options.
    • Super-fast. Many conversions are faster than realtime. DIVX encoding on a G5 dual is twice as faster as realtime.
    • Queue encodings in the ffmpegX Progress window.
    • Includes a full-featured universal video player (mplayer) supporting VOB and text subtitles, with choice of fonts, font sizes and international text encodings including Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Greek and more.

    • Reauthors SVCD as DVD.
    • Creates DVD image files from VIDEO_TS folders.
    • Converts SRT subtitles to DVD Studio Pro 1.5 format.
    • Creates AVI or MPG files with two audio tracks.

    MacFormat Magazine 144: “ffmpegX is a brilliant shareware utility

    versiontracker.com: “FIAT LUX. I was an avid Windows user as for over 10 years. Even after buying a MAC I was an avid Windows user as it was the only platform that could handle conversion of multiple formats, especially the way MPEG was handled. After 2 months being converted to a MAC and 1 week of finding ffmpegX, I have finally dismantled my PC and sold it on ebay.”

    macupdate.com: “Takes video encoding out of the dark ages”

    Paul Hagstrom: ” It’s certainly possible to use all of the tools ffmpegX wraps on your own by downloading them, compiling them, and running them from the command line, but it is a several-stage process with lots of trial and even more error . Major has taken the guesswork out of encoding, and has kept it very usable, very configurable, and very up-to-date. Plus, he’s been very responsive to feature requests and all other questions on his support forum. It’s well worth the shareware price, if nothing else for the time and aggravation you’ll save yourself

  • Mac OS X 10.3 or higher (an older version 0.0.9k is available for Mac OS X 10.2).
  • To playback DivX, use codecs from www.3ivx.com or www.divx.com
  • To playback mpeg-2, use VLC, mplayer or the apple mpeg-2 player component. To comply with applicable laws and licensing terms, the mpeg2enc, mencoder and mplayer components are not distributed with ffmpegX, and must be downloaded and installed separately. In addition, to comply with copyright laws, ffmpegX doesn’t allow to select a DVD disk device as input and doesn’t contain any DVD decryption software. Please make sure that you comply with all laws applicables in your country concerning copyright protection.
  • Why ffmpegX?
    I needed a software to quickly encode to SVCD and DivX-compatible formats in order to archive my family movies. Not so much time ago, there was no method available for MacOS apart from some freaky process involving PC emulation. When OSX was introduced, it became possible to run Unix command line tools like ffmpeg, mpeg2enc and vcdimager. However, operation in command line mode was time consuming. Some GUIs popped out for each tool from pioneers like Ross, Henry Mason and Jesper Nillson, but still, many apps were required to go through a full encoding and authoring process. So I decided to control all components with a single GUI. The result was good enough for myself, and also seemed useful to others, so I spent some time for improving it and creating this site. Other great apps now exist, like 42, DiVa, OpenShiiva, Sizzle, and many others. Please check them, as they could be better for you either in general or for specific uses. You have now five exciting options about ffmpegX, 1/Try it, 2/Use it and register, 3/Trash it, 4/Don’t trash it but don’t use it, 5/Trash your computer and go to planet Zorg (where I’m currently located) for some holidays.
