ViddyUp, the video conversion software from Splasm Software originally created to enable users to quickly and easily convert video to the iPod, now supports Apple TV. The 1.8 update is free for registered users; ViddyUp costs $9.95.
ViddyUp, formerly Podner, lets you convert video to an iPod or Apple TV-compatible form by dragging and dropping into the ViddyUp window. It works with all QuickTime-compatible files, and it doesn’t require QuickTime Pro in order to work. It creates MPEG-4 and H.264 video files.
Features include batch processing, MPEG muxed audio support, cropping options, single and multi-pass, poster frame identification and more.
In addition to MPEG-4 and H.264 export to Apple TV, ViddyUp 1.8 features better support for frame rates that approach zero, and fixes crashing issues related to MPEG-4 videos created by digital cameras and incorrectly-formatted error strings.
Splasm notes that ViddyUp 1.8 requires QuickTime 7.1.5. Other system requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later, iTunes 6 or later, and temporary hard drive space three times the size of each video clip.
