ConvertXtoDVD does exactly what its name says. This software is my current favorite for video conversion, it allows you to set the target size, speeds and compression for the targeted CD or DVD. I have used this software numerous times when making my own personal videos. I really like that you can add multiple files, add imagery, text and chapters. It helps you give your own videos a very professional look. It supports a lot of files, has the ability to add subs and allows you to adjust the videos settings if you need. It's not tethered to just conversion either, it will convert, it can burn files for your CD/DVD or USB, it can turn the files into ISOs and it can mass produce copies of the same file if you want. Overall I enjoy using this software, it does have a free trial but you will have to pick up a license to keep using it. It's kind of pricey but I think it was worth it. If you do your own presentation and hand out physical media, this is the kind of software you want as it will allow you to pump out CDs from the same file. This is my recommended go-to software for video conversion and burning. It's simple to drag and drop and burn feature makes it something very quick and easy to use.
I purchased the Flip4Mac Pro version ($29) because for my work I've sometimes needed to convert wmv files to mov or mp4 files for editing on my Mac. Flip4Mac worked like a charm. I was surprised that this wasn't included in Quicktime or as a paid add-on. Maybe some licensing issue with Microsoft. But Microsoft has openly endorsed Flip4Mac as Windows Media Components for QuickTime on their website. It's pretty much the only known component for OSX that supports Windows Media Video and Audio. That format itself is a dying breed, where the preference now is mp4. Mac's native format is mov, and web browsers are now also using webm and ogv. So with all of these formats, being able to convert between them all is crucial. Uploading to YouTube generally does the job for you, but sometimes there are cases if you're viewing a video on your computer or editing, using a standalone player or a website theme and you need to convert the files on your own. The WMV and WMA formats are what Microsoft Windows Movie Maker uses, which is the free program distributed with Windows (kinda like Paint is for images), so it's still widely in use especially amongst Windows users. There are several pricing levels that are both affordable and make sense: - Flip4Mac Player which allows you to play Windows Media files - The Pro version allows to you to import and convert using QuickTime - The Studio version has higher dimensions - The Studio Pro HD has higher quality with two-pass encoding
- Converts WMV and WMA files to Mac formats for editing or viewing - High-quality, affordable price - Handles other files formats too like ASF - Can do high dimension and high-quality encoding
- Costs money, but worth it to get a more quality product that's updated over time - Doesn't work with DRM content, but DRM really isn't in use any more anyway.

Highly recommended. Flip4Mac could be considered as one of the essential Mac applications, one of the most popular video and music players for Mac OS X. Overall, the price is fair since you’ll really get a lot of features which you don’t have by default within your Mac OS X.More about Telestream Flip4Mac
