How to Use Techspansion's Open Source to Build iSquint and VisualHub

Squint and VisualHub, the popular video converter on Mac OS X have now gone open source. They also have got new names, Film Redux (VisualHub) and PunyVid (iSquint).

As you may or may not know, the developer, Techspanion has closed shop and after an outcry from fans, it has released the source code.

What you need:
Mac OS X 10.5, Xcode 3.0 and Techspansion's open source

The operation is simple, but the stability would be a great concern, it kept reporting error messages during my try which is really frustrated. Perhaps it's not wise enough to spend hours coping with those errors messages, as there must be some commercial programs that perform much more reliably, like the Mac Video Converter Ultimate.
