ConverterPro v1.0 w GUI by Jon_ at hackint0sh.

Original Thread: http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=32508

Youtube Video Demo:

Version Tracking Number: 1.0What new the GUI Interface Brings:
EASY conversions, convert between all supported file formats easily with no hassel at all. With the GUI everything is just one click conversion process.
Converting videos are now implemented to be done in the background so you can click convert and you can be playing a game, listening to music or watching a movie or just put your ipod into the lock state. Whenever the conversion process is complete it will prompt you to tell you that it’s done and was or was not sucessful.

Youtube to MP4 with no bugs what so ever, type in the required fields and it’ll start downloading and converting with the least amount of problems!
Built in easy access and easy conversion support with iphpPod.
GUI Interface that implements all current features

What is to come:

* Images:

* Image conversion support
* Quick copy of images to wallpaper directory and camera roll.
* Convert video areas to image (capture)
* Widgets:
* More like to be implemented in my next software release (jDesktop), more info on that later.
* Built-in media player – Might not happen, iphpPod works great.
