Roxio is preparing an update to its Popcorn desktop DVD and video conversion application for Mac. Popcorn 3 features support for both the iPhone and Apple TV, better video quality settings, and TivoToGo functionality. Along with its DVD-burning features, which include Fit-to-DVD, automatic video conversion and menu building, and support for dual-layer drives, the application’s video conversion feature gets batch conversion, a video quality preview that lets users see what the compressed video will look like at the current settings, and the ability to convert TivoToGo recordings for viewing on the iPhone, Apple TV, or iPod. Roxio Popcorn 3 will be available at the end of the month and will run $50 for a full version; $30 for an upgrade from previous versions.
