Roxio ships Popcorn 3

Roxio has released Popcorn 3, the latest version of its Mac video conversion software. In particular the program converts files for devices such as iPhones, iPods and Xbox 360s, but it also specializes in creating viewable DVDs. The third edition can burn DVDs up to four hours in length, and implements Batch DVD-Video Conversion, a tool which allows the queing of multiple DVDs for Fit-to-DVD. A pause command allows users to halt burning or conversion, and resume at leisure.

Another added component is Automatic TiVoToGo Conversion, which begins converting TV shows as soon as they arrive on a Mac. Finally, the software now uses Elgato's Turbo.264 to speed up encoding, and can preview video quality before committing to the conversion process. Popcorn 3 is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.4.10, and costs $50.
