Roxio Releases Popcorn 4

Roxio today announced the release of Popcorn 4, a new version of their video conversion and burning software for Intel-based Macs. According to the company, Popcorn 4 allows consumers to quickly and easily transfer video from capture devices and DVDs to game consoles, set-top boxes, mobile devices and more. It also includes an improved feature set with new tools for converting and extracting video and support for new formats, including AVCHD and Adobe Flash.

With the new Popcorn 4 you can import and convert personal video entertainment from virtually anywhere. The application adds to its extensive format compatibility with support for AVCHD and AVCHD-Lite (high-definition camcorder files), as well as the popular Web-based Flash format. Enhanced video preparation tools make it easy to extract favorite video segments or an audio track from a DVD-Video or high-definition file. For lightning-fast file conversion, Popcorn leverages Turbo.264 HD hardware accelerator, and makes the process more convenient by adding the ability to schedule long conversion projects for when your system is idle. The application even allows you to preview how a converted file will look on your favorite device without having to perform a full file conversion.

Popcorn 4 streamlines video transfer with a new list of device "profiles" for next-generation consumer electronics including the latest handheld devices, the Palm Pre and new iPod nano, as well as game consoles such as the Nintendo Wii and Sony PSP go. Simply select your device from the Profile list, and Popcorn will automatically create a file that's optimized for playback on that device. If you share videos via the Web, then you'll appreciate a new feature that lets you directly upload your video to YouTube or the ability to output to Flash for publishing to a personal page or site.

Popcorn 4 is available now for $50. Registered users of Popcorn or Toast can upgrade for $30.
