    For all folks using Macs for editing and storage, the app HANDBRAKE is an awesome tool for compressing files to post, send and/or for storage. Example - I took a 14min video that was 3.93 gb, compressed on Handbrake and final version was 335.1mb. Literally no visable difference in video quality. It's free download from App store.

    Interesting however it is hard to believe that there is no compression or loss of quality. Any other views or experience of this product?

    Handbrake is one of the best tools since years. Fast, stable and well maintained. Love it!

    Handbrake has been around for a long time.
    I didn't realize it was still being updated.
    Haven't used it in a while, I'm going to download it see take a look
    I don't see it at the app store, but there is a website.
    HandBrake: Open Source Video Transcoder
    Free downloads for Mac and Windows
    It has been free as long as I've been aware of it.

    I just ran a 5gig file through Handbrake.
    I came out at 179 meg and if there's a difference I'm not seeing it myself.
