The world's best selling video converter for Mac, since 2011.
The fastest video converter on the App Store with movie and TV show metadata, subtitles, folder monitoring and batch conversions. Smart Converter Pro 2 has it all.
It’s so easy to use - just drag your video or audio files onto Smart Converter Pro, select an output preset and convert. Smart Converter Pro analyses your files and only converts the bits that need to be converted. This means less waiting and top quality conversions.
The Pro Difference
Smart Converter Pro offers a bunch of amazing features to make your conversions quicker, smarter and more convenient:
* Folder monitoring - convert anything that hits your monitored folders
* Movie and TV Show info - automatically add key info about your movies
* Subtitles - include subtitles, add external subtitles and even load subtitles from the web!
* Audio tracks - include any or all of the audio tracks in your movies
* Batch processing - queue up and convert as many files as you like in one go
* Set destination - you decide where you converted files go
* Decide whether to send converted files to iTunes
* AC3 and DTS surround sound passthrough and conversion
Why So Smart?
When you drop a media file into Smart Converter Pro and choose a conversion type, it immediately analyses your file and works out what needs to be converted.
In many cases neither the video nor the audio need converting. In some cases just one or the other need converting, and in a few cases both will need converting.
Smart Converter Pro only converts the parts of your movie that need it and leaves the rest alone. This makes Smart Converter Pro faster that every other converter while maintaining the highest possible quality video an audio in the converted movie.
Awesome Workflow Support
Smart Converter Pro has been optimised to not only provide the fastest video conversions possible, but to simply your life also.
This is done by combining powerful automation features which work seamlessly together.
Here's how it works:
- Folder Monitoring: tell Smart Converter Pro which folders it should check for new downloads
- Metadata lookups: Smart Converter Pro will automatically pull in artwork and movie/show descriptions
- Subtitles: set your language preference and if the movie or TV show is in a different language Smart Converter Pro will pull in the required subtitles. Really.
- Send to iTunes: Once all the magic is done, Smart Converter Pro will add your file to iTunes, ready to watch on AppleTV or sync to your iOS devices
Give the Smart Converter Pro workflow a try and simplify your life.

BEST Converter I Have Ever Used - I don't know why some people are determined to leave bad reviews? This converter works great! I have used many different converters and find this to be the best. It adds cover art, descriptions, actors and all other metadata to a film or TV show. I will agree that some formats convert slower than others but a lot is going on when converting videos. (A quad core with a dedicated GPU will help more than anything). I would say that 90% of what I convert is done in under 1 minute. Try to get videos with x264 they will be done in no time. In regards to resolution it really depends on what you start with. In other words don't expect to start off with a standard definition video and end up with an HD copy. When I convert HD videos I see no noticeable difference in quality between the original and converted copy. However I'm only an avid film watcher with more than 1000 movies in my library. I would recommend you spend the money if your an iTunes junkie and love your metadata attached to the films.
Has no business being called “Pro" - Any converter that is as slow as this one and that does not include AVCHD to ProRes as one of its outputs should not be called “PRO.” Most pros use ProRes in Final Cut Pro. Final Cut has not made it easy to transfer AVCHD into FCP 7 (which for many remains the preferred version) and the purpose of a third-party converter is to facilitate what cannot be done otherwise. Further the “force conversion of AVCHD” option defaults to the OFF position, creating the appearance of a fast conversion when in fact the final output is riddled with unstable frames, rendering it unusable by pros. Turning ON the “force conversion” results in one of the slowest conversions I have seen to date, the reward for which is an H264 format which must then be RE-RENDERED using some other program into ProRes 422 so that it can be used by FCP. Part of the problem lies in FCP’s whacked and wonky file and transfer function, it is true, but either SmartConverter Pro should add an AVCHD to ProRes422 option to its paid app version or it should not be called “Pro.” Pros who haven’t migrated to Premier or FCP X simply cannot use this program, and if they HAVE, they have no need of this program. A waste of $$.

It’s amazing, when it’s not crashing. - I gave it 5 stars because I love it when it’s working. It might be my computer (it’s probably my computer), but for some reason the app crashes after every couple of conversions. I have to force it to quit and then re-open it every time it crashes which is very annoying considering I paid for the app, but when it is working it does exactly what it says it will.
DOES WHAT IT SAYS!!! - I’ve been using it for about 6 months, worth every penny and does and excellent job of converting whether single or batch. I’d receommend it to anybody; simple enough for a 5th Grader! Peace and happy converting!
Worth it!!!! - I have used the free version for years and love it….I decided to purchase the pro version to convert batches instead of one at a time….It’s worth it….Works great and very easy to use.
Slow Converting Speed - While it is a good conversion app overall that serves its purpose, I hate how that it always uses the slow conversion speed for my MP4s. I wish it gave the option for me to select the option to convert faster at a lower video/adio quailty because I after I watch them once, I delete them.
Great Converter... - I’ve been using the free version for quite some time. Then, I had to recently had the need to do batches, which the Pro version offers. To my surprise, there was so many features I had no idea I was missing outside of the batch feature. If you’re in need to do a bunch of conversions, this is the app you need. Keep in mind, you don’t have much control of encoding, as you’re restricted to the presents. That being said, they’re good. If you need to tweak your conversions, I’d suggest using Handbrake (free) as it give you much more control. If you just need to do the quickest conversions without the need of completely re-encoding your multimedia, this does the trick well. The only thing I would like would to have the ability to actually edit the meta tags when you import from IMDB. I would highly recommend.
