I am newbie to this video world and have started using a Canon G7X to shoot video (I shoot casual video of my babies, family outings etc). Could someone help me find a good software which I can use to convert the video (codec, frame-rate, aspect ratio etc.).

Why I need such a software? Because G7X allows me to shoot 60p video and my TV (Samsung smart TV) does not play anything beyond 30p.

I also understand that I can shoot 30p video directly from camera; however, I would like to create some slo-mo videos as well.

Also, I am planning to buy a Nikon D810 this holiday; so I will be taking good amount of video.

I use MacBook pro retina (15") laptop, so, kindly suggest Mac compatible softwares.

Thank, NN

FFMPEG which is like the Swiss army knife of video. If you don't know how to use command line, either try FFMPEGX, or (better) learn to use the command line.

I've used Handbrake to compress things for my AppleTV and other situations. The interface is not great, but it has some common useful presets that work well.
