Reel Bean released
JS8 Media today released , a media export and player application that converts movies to a format suitable for playback on Apple's video iPod. ReelBean can export movies to MPEG-4, H.264, 3GPP/3GPP2, AVI, DV stream, image sequences, QuickTime movies, and more. The application offers the ability to list all media tracks--video, sound, or text--contained within a movie, and can extract any of these into a separate file. ReelBean plays movies at any speed, displays movie info and property panels, and enables users to select or edit parts of movies to be saved as new movie files. ReelBean is available for free until late-January, when the application will be priced at $10. ReelBean requires Mac OS X 10.4.
