Good Info. She is very thorough, but on the Mac you will need the Ultimate Converter by Wondershare.

Rosa has done a sterling job in clearly explaining all the 'Gotcha's' that could so easily trip new publishers up,and possibly,even abandon the idea of uploading their content on Amazon's platform! Everything needed to be able to abide by Amazon's rules has been covered in a concise way,and the tools/services that are available to get things done have been included as well:) All in all,Rosa has not only saved people a lot of potential grief/pain while trying to use Amazon's interface/platform,she has covered the basics of video compression/conversion/captions too:) Thanks very much for the clear and very useful knowledge that has been imparted:))
