Elgato Turbo.264 HD

We were big fans of the original Elgato Turbo.264 hardware encoder, so when we heard that the company had released an updated version, called the Turbo.264 HD, we pretty much ordered one immediately. The product promises to “quickly convert any video into a format that you can play anywhere and share with anyone” and supports HD camcorders, AVCHD, and direct upload to YouTube. We are gonna tear into this one, and report back with our thoughts. Meantime, any questions on the device?

Clever 15 year-old David Nelson has devised Muziic Player, a free interface that allows you to download tunes from YouTube. With the encoder, you only need to drag and drop or browse through MP3 files and press “encode.” There is also a search bar for single or artist and other features include playback and volume control, and playlist management. You can even go as far as adding an album cover by dragging and dropping JPG, .BMP or .PNG images. Unfortunately, YouTube is not thrilled with the idea.

A YouTube spokesperson claimed, “We’re looking into it now. On a preliminary review, however, it appears that the site violates our API terms of use.”

Here’s hoping that they can work something out so that the technology and David’s hard work will not go to waste.

If the program is successful, look for them to allow all of its partners to charge for movies and TV shows on the site.
