So far: wow

I spend a lot of my professional life converting 60- to 120-second videos with action from ProRez LT to .mp4, and weird .mov and MPEG for DVDs. Compressor has been taking a lot of time with poor results. Quicktime Player 7 has bailed me out scores of times, but you have to hand-feed it, is 32-bit and I keep current on OS X and FCP. Squeeze does some oddball conversion for me, but is not good for 1st gen AppleTV. So far I have been thrilled with Permute. Easy to use, far faster than QT 7 or Compressor, access to the settings I need and faster than all get out. And it’s 64-bit. Not all the features of Compressor or Squeeze, but very workable for my shop. Maybe the future will be OK after all.

Best Conversion software In App store

Permute 2 Is fantastic easy to use software for that everybody from beginners to experts to easily convert to video and audio to mac formats. One huge plus about this app is it’s constantly updated for bugs and Improvments almost every month. At $9.99 Permute 2 Is a steal because performance wise It’s also faster at conversion than almost any other mac app I’ve ever used.

Highly recommended at twice the price.

This the best, forget the rest

I’ve tried various conversion apps over the years. Handbreak. Even Quicktime Player will save a conversion now. And I recently got Toast Titanium in a bundle. All of them are junk compared to Permute (which I’ve been using even before version 2). Well, at least for video, which is what I needed. The others are MUCH slower, and Toast, for example, ballooned my files upon converion (to Apple TV format). Permute keeps them to a nice size, basically the same as their orginal AVIs or MKVs.
It’s not just fast, but super simple. Drag, drop, start. That’s it. Got some more? Drag in some more — they’re added to the bottom and it will continue to process the queue.
I’ve never found a file that it converted “badly” (i.e. no sound, parts missing, blank video, etc.), but I’ve had that happen in other apps.
In short, worth every penny of $10 if you convert video files for playing on Apple TV, mobile devices, or even just for importing them into one library, like iTunes, so that your videos aren’t scattered about your computer, or if you don’t want to run this app for this format or this other app for this other format.
Did I mention just go get it already? :-)
