I have a large collection of videos i need to batch convert their file types so itunes can read them. The videos vary in aspect ratios and quality. How can I change all these videos to let say '.mov' but keeping the same aspect ratios from each file?

Thank you

The best way to do this is to use a program called FFmpegX. This program will allow you to do just that, and not has batch processing as a built-in feature, a bit of a hassle to install, but it's free.

One does what one can... but together we can do more.

I just used compressor, takes a bit of time but you can always just walk away and have a nap.

That would be really cool if I had a grand to drop on some software that I will never use in any other way... lol.

I wish I could use that program, without using FCS

Yeah, that is true. I'll do some digging for you and see if I can find any program like it that is easy to use.
