Thanks for your comment but this is what I mean... Dolby Pro Logic is stereo Sound, however when played through QuickTime it outputs 4.0 and even 5.1 sound depending on the Dolby Pro Logic version. Dolby Pro Logic Version 1 takes surround sound audio files puts them into stereo channels and then when played, they play as 4.0 sound. Dolby Pro logic II does the same thing as Pro logic I however it from stereo sound puts out 5.1.. from 2 channel sound.
DVDs are mainly in 5.1 sound the only way in a stereo format to keep its 5.1 sound is using Dolby Pro logic II,
There is re encoding done, for example on Handbrake you can select Dolby Pro Logic I or II and select it to be at 160 kbps AAC. (being as how AAC it will work on Apple TV and play out on Apple TV in surround sound because it has the ability to decode and playback surround sound files from encoded in Dolby Pro Logic thus iTunes Movies are Surround Sound)
By doing this you make Surround sound files from stereo sound... iTunes does this with there movies however there movies are in Dolby Pro Logic I thus, why Steve said his movies are surround sound. lol sorry it is a bit complicated
if the original is stereo sound Dolby Pro logic doesn't turn it into surround sound... it keeps it stero...
however if the original was 5.1 sound and you use Dolby Pro Logic II you get in 2 Channel sound 5.1 audio playback in devices and software that can decode that technology
Dolby Pro logic I however will take 5.1 down to 4.0 surround sound.... and does the same thing as II however only in 4.0 sound... once again sorry it is a complicated piece of technology Dolby Scientists are amazing.
That being said my question is why doesn't popcorn 2 support Dolby pro logic that way when you make movies with popcorn 2 it will output that AAC audio at 160 kpbs with 2 channels that way when played back on iTunes and QuickTime will output the 5.1 and in ipod play back as stereo being as how ipod isn't surround sound compatible. This will also allow for the Apple TV to also playback the surround sound in those stereo sound files because it is capable of outputting 5.1 sound.
Hope this helps... the whole point to me wanting this is because I feel with Turbo I can save a lot of time if roxio would support this verses using Handbrake which will not work with Turbo... Roxio Programs from what I am aware of will have support later on for Tubrio by Elgato making them faster than Handbrake I would imagine.
Now the person who told me Roxio doesn't support Pro Logic could be wrong this is why I am posting up all this information on it lol... I did call again and one person said it is Dolby pro logic output.. however he didn't know the version number. So does anyone know if Roxio's Popcorn supports Pro Logic sound? I am getting confused because I just got a different answer lol.... John can you help me here lol...
Sorry and I do appreciate all the feedback just trying to make Popcorn better,
