ffWorks (formerly iFFmpeg) for Mac is a Comprehensive Media Tool for macOS! Focused on simplicity, the app brings a fresh approach to use FFmpeg, to create ultra high quality movies without the need to write one single command-line code. The app has a feature-set for operating the open source FFmpeg without the need to type long command lines.

Graphical controls are sent programmatically to such external components developed by third parties and running outside the ffWorks application. In order to comply with applicable laws and licenses which may vary from country to country, no FFmpeg binary is included.

ff·Works is a user-friendly video converter that allows you to create top-notch movies without the need to write command-line code. It offers comprehensive technical information on media files, including video and audio codecs, format, encoding settings, frame rate, color info, and more.

The software comes with a convenient feature called Watch Folders that allows you to automatically process files in a designated folder with a specific target. Creating a droplet is a breeze, and you can simply drag and drop files onto it to send them to ffWorks for processing.

Drop zones are another handy feature that enables you to process source files to different targets effortlessly. You can create unlimited drop zones and drag files onto them to start the conversion process.

Whether you're a novice or an advanced user, ff·Works for macOS is the perfect tool for converting and processing audio and video files with exceptional quality. The software provides a wealth of options that give you complete control over the conversion process.
