      HandBrake vs MPEG Streamclip opinions
      Most users think HandBrake is a great alternative to MPEG Streamclip.
      While HandBrake will open almost any video file and convert it to MP4, it will not do custom upsizing, such as 512x400 to 640x480. MPEG Streamclip does an excellent job of upsizing, but only at about 10fps.
