I think this is a pretty cool little device. Plug the USB dongle into your computer and it becomes a hardware H.264 encoder, so you can do the daunting task of converting videos without using your processor

Does this thing help out any video converter or do have to use their software?

I think you can export in QuickTime or their software, but it can handle just about anything it seems

- Any movie that QuickTime plays (through codecs that ship with QuickTime as well as codecs that are supplied by third-party components like Flip4Mac)
- MPEG Program Stream/System Stream (including unencrypted DVD/HD DVD content)

I know I have gotten to the point where I don't need any media player for videos besides quicktime.

First, dispite the link string, it is the "elgato turbo.264".

Second, if anyone is thinking of buy one, note the limitations of the encodings it can do. If you can live within them, then this thing sounds great given its speed.
