Pretty basic - Awesome app, glad i found one that worked and was cheap! Nothing incredibly special about the app, video conversion apps do generally the same thing...i do like how simple and basic the UI is though :)
Does not work - This app didn't work. Clicking convert hung the app or crashed it. I wonder if the app store doesn't bother to do a basic check that the application functions. Tried several format types and different files. Using most up-to-date system on 2009 MacBook Pro.

Crashes after every conversion - 100% crash rate on a Macbook Pro running OSX 10.7.3, crashes after every conversion. This is using default settings for conversions. This app should be avoided until the author sorts out the problems.
Easy to use and choose format - I needed something to convert to Windows compatible files for my non-Mac friends and this software was simple to use and offers many formats to convert to. I did some video editing in iMovie, then converted it to a file my "Windows" friend could use and he was able to add on to what I started. The conversions go very quickly and you choose where they are saved. Simple enough for me! What you see in the screenshots is what is available to convert to.
Crashes on Mountain Lion - This app does great conversions. However since I upgraded to Mountain Lion it crashes if I add more than 3 files to be converted. It needs a bug fix upgrade for Mountain Lion.
No Worky in Mavericks - Perhaaps it shouldn’t have been a surprise given the app hasn’t been updated in years, but I can’t get it to encode in Mavericks. It crashes during the encoding process 100% of the time, and unlike a previous reviewer’s experience, in my case it doesn’t happen at the end after the file has been encoded. So I never get a successfully encoded file out of it.
Crashes after Encoding but encoding is successful - I bought this app for WebM encoding for HTML5 video (FireFox 24 and below still require WebM versions in the video tags). Trying to find something that can encode Webm is harder than it should be, most of the apps cost quite a bit for something that is an open source project. I tried Miro Video Convertor but without any bit rate settings, its more or less worthless. Hewbo is a mixed bag, it won't accept Intermediate propertiery codecs like Apple ProRez (ironically, Miro Vido Convertor will) so I had re-export my video to a format that Hewbo could accept for transcoding. Almost its settings panel for WebM is locked to 500 kbps increments, and most codecs are locked similarly. Hewbo also crashes immediately after an encode, but it did successfully encode my two 720p H264 video files to webm. It did what I wanted for $4 so I don't feel burned. Certainly not a 1 star but its badly need of updating. With a little tweaking, this could be one of my standbys for web production. I'm guessing its an OS issue causing the crashes but just in case for other would be buyers, I used this on my Mac Pro: Mac Pro 2008 / 10.8.4 / 14 GB ram / AMD Radeon HD 6870 + ATI Radeon HD 2600 / USB 3.0 PCI card / eSATA PCI card
