VisualHub 1.0

I agree with Bill Bumgarner that VisualHub, which converts to and from most video formats, is a nice product. It’s easy to use and works, and that alone is plenty to set it apart from other software in its genre. (I did encounter a minor problem where it used a lower bitrate than necessary when converting files to DVD. Tyler, the developer, replied almost immediately and said he’d look into it.) The Xgrid support is cool, and it makes me wish my software had a need for that technology. Plus, the documentation is fun, useful, and concise. I wish it were built into the application package; I want to be able to access it easily and not have to keep a stray PDF lying around.
