Popcorn, made by Roxio, is a DVD backup and conversion application for Mac OS X. It compresses dual-layer DVDs to fit onto a standard single layer disc, and converts DVD video so you can watch it on your iPod or PSP or other portable video player. Popcorn cannot, however, backup or copy most commercial DVD's that are encrypted.


  • Make backup copies of your (unencrypted) DVDs – with all video, audio, languages and menus.
  • Compress an entire dual layer DVD to fit onto a standard recordable single layer DVD.
  • Convert DVDs, DivX, AVI, MPEG and other video files to watch on an iPod, PSP, or other portable video player.
  • Create your own Director’s Cut custom compilations, and choose specific video, audio and languages to copy.
  • Preview and snapshot the video prior to copying.
