Is It Possible to Convert my Video to Mpeg-2 Using Mpeg Streamclip?
Nope. This query on Google brings a lot of people to our site, which is unfortunate because until now there was never a clear answer on our site. Now there is and the answer is no. Mpeg Streamclip allows you to encode your video files into a lot of different codecs, but it won't allow the user to turn a .mov, .avi, .dv or .mp4 file into a .m2t, .mpeg, .vob, or .ts file. Mpeg Streamclip can open Mpeg-2 files and once opened it allows the user to demux, mux, save the video track, save the audio track, or convert a mpeg-2 wrapper to a different wrapper (from .vob to .ts for example), but Mpeg Streamclip does not allow the user to convert non-Mpeg-2 files to Mpeg-2 file types though.
What are the Alternatives?
So what are the alternatives that can do this? Are they free? Nope. There's no free alternative. If you want a professional alternative, then I suggest downloading Compressor from Apple. It's only $49, and it'll give you a lot of options.
If you're looking for a free program that can convert your video files to mpeg-2 files, then check out Adapter. It's a relatively easy-to-use program. Users can just drag and drop their videos into the browser and then choose to convert the video a variety of formats. It doesn't have the kind of advance controls that Compressor gives users, but it's a lot less confusing. It can put out mpeg-2 files as .mpeg files. To get those .mpeg files into a .vob, .m2t, or .ts file another program would be required (like Mpeg Streamclip). FFmpeg is a requirement for Adapter to work. If FFmpeg isn't already installed on a computer, then Adapter will prompt the user the download and install it.
