How To Use Commands

Commands allow you to convert files to other formats. The commands are inserted into the command line that is included with every Mac OS. It's not complicated - even a complete beginner can use commands.

1. Install FFMPEG

To use commands, install the free FFMPEG app. Locoloader uses FFMPEG commands to convert audio and video files to various formats.

2. Use FFMPEG commands to convert files

Tip: If you need to stop conversion before it ends, press Control + C in the Terminal window where the conversion is running. Never interrupt the conversion by closing the Terminal window, the output file could be corrupted.

Tip: If you want to stop conversion automatically after, for example, one hour, just add the parameter -t 01:00:00 to the command.
