The information you provide is OK I would say, but please do not
misspell FFmpeg (notice the two capital F) and use ffmpeg.org as the
homepage link.

I just installed the Mac version of Saffron Encoder again but you made
no changes at all!  Everything I criticized above is still valid and
none of the things you promise above have been implemented.
