Will there be Apple TV settings?

Question

Is there a way that Popcorn will convert our video to Apple TV settings?

If so how??

Will popcorn be be releasing an update to fit with the Apple TV settings?

Are they even thinking about it?

I wonder how we good get this info....

I would rather buy a Roxio product but it they don't do it I will have to bu a different program....

The H.264 and the MPEG 4 (Standard) export options meet AppleTV specs. My guess is Roxio will make this more clear the next time (if) they update Popcorn. See Apple's AppleTV Tech Specs page for details of the formats supported.

I guess what I'm trying to find out is if this is the best setting for the best video output?

I would choose H.264 for the best quality. As for tweaking the custom settings for AppleTV, I suggest seeing what others have to say at Apple's discussion forum Here.

 

There should not be any quality difference using Popcorn rather than QuickTime Pro which is how Apple suggests creating AppleTV-compatible content.

I have found that using Visual Hub's software is by far much better than what Popcorn is creating.....

The Popcorn 2 H.264 setting outputs in a .mp4 video file. I think to be both iPod and AppleTV compatible the file needs to be a .m4v

 

If I use Popcorn 2, I then need to use Visual Hub or Quicktime Pro (both have Apple TV as a selectable output).

 

Visual Hub is a steal.. and a great program that will convert a multiple VIDEO_TS folder directly to .m4v

 

The only problem it has is not being able to select multiple copies (as you can do in Popcorn 2).

 

I don't believe Quicktime Pro will convert a VIDEO_TS... I'll have to try...

 

Come on Roxio... let's see a 2.3 version with Apple TV included!
