Podner 1.2 released
Splasm Software today released , an update to its video iPod formatting tool. Version 1.2 offers significantly improved H.264 processing performance--10-50 percent faster, as well as improved MPEG-4 quality. The update also reduces MPEG-4 file sizes, and includes Traditional Chinese localization. The application reformats movie collections into iPod-ready files up to six times faster than QuickTime Pro's Movie to iPod option, and allows users to tweak settings while Podner works. Processed movies show up in a special playlist in iTunes, ready to be sync'd with an iPod. Podner 1.2 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is available for $10.
