    Convert .mov Files To M2Ts, Etc.

    Thanks. I have Toast 10 also so I will try that. Also, since posting, I tried Divx and that works so that is definitely an option. Thanks for the help!

    Convert .mov Files To M2Ts, Etc.

    Thank you for your reply. Actually, the video is sent from my network hard drive to the LG Blu-Ray player which then plays the content on the connected HDTV. The Blu-Ray player is limited in the types of files that it can read/play. Here is the list: DivX®/DivX HD, MPEG2 TS/PS, MPEG1 SS, XVID, MKV, AVI, WMA, MP3, AC3, AAC, JPEG, PNG (copied from the LG website.) I need to be able to convert my iMovie projects to one of these (video) formats. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Convert .mov Files To M2Ts, Etc.

    I am trying to watch projects that I create in iMovie on my HDTV via my home network. Rather than burning a DVD and playing it on my Blu-Ray player, I want to be able to play the files directly from my network. I have a network attached LG Blu-Ray player that will not read .mov files. I want to use Popcorn to convert the finished product on my computer to a file format that is viewable in this way in HD. So far, I have had no luck. The Blu-Ray player will read the raw files in the form they are downloaded from the camcorder, which is m2ts. However, after a product is created in iMovie, it saves in .mov format. I would like to convert back to m2ts if possible. Another usable format is also ok, if it is in HD. Any suggestions? thanks.

    Blu-Ray Disc With Toast 10 Pro Won't Play

    I will answer my own post since I have solved the problem since posting my question. Hopefully it will help someone else. I searched for software updates on my Blu-ray player, thinking maybe that was the issue (even though the player is not old.) There was an update available. I downloaded and installed it and now the discs I created play fine. I'm not sure why the "out of the box" software wouldn't read the discs, but the update works!

    Blu-Ray Disc With Toast 10 Pro Won't Play

    I am hoping to find some help here as everything else I have tried has been unsuccessful. I am fairly new to Toast 10, but I have been able to use many of the functions without difficulty. However, the one function that I have not been able to successfully complete is creating a hi def DVD playable on my set top blu-ray player. Here are details of what I am doing (I'll try to be brief) so if anyone with experience sees an immediate glaring error it can be pointed out. The video was taken on my Canon HG10 camcorder in AVCHD format. I edited the clips in iMovie and created a project. The final format of that project is Quicktime (.mov) format. (That project plays perfectly in Quicktime.) In order to burn the project to watch on my TV, I imported the file into Toast 10 Pro, selected Blu-ray Video (in the video menu) and burned the project to a single layer DVD +R. The project burned and the bell rang when it completed, but when I put the disc in my Blu-ray player it elected it and said "disc error." The player is an LG BD570 that is supposed to be compatible with with all of the standard formats, including AVCHD. The BD player is less than 6 months old. Thinking that the iMove project may have been the problem, I then repeated the process, but I used a very short unedited clip (.M2TS format) from the camcorder with the same result. I used all of the standard settings, automatic encoding and "best" video quality. Any help with the situation would be appreciated.

    Mov Files On Toast 10. What Can I Do?

    Thanks. I'll give it a try!

    Mov Files On Toast 10. What Can I Do?

    Thank you for the response. I haven't tried it, but I want to be sure we are talking about the same thing. I don't have a blu-ray burner so I want to burn the files to a standard DVD for playback on a set top blu-ray player. Most blu-ray players will read DVDs in AVCHD format. I want a simple way to be able to watch the movies I take on my camcorder in HD on my regular TV. I have no experience with any file type other than AVCHD. The new dSLR cameras (and some of the higher end compact ones as well) that shoot HD video as well as still images, record the video in .mov format. Since I have no experience at all with that format, I am trying to get information about how to handle the files before I invest in the camera. It is surprising how little the camera sales people that I have spoken to actually know. Thanks again.

    Mov Files On Toast 10. What Can I Do?

    I want to be able to use HD video files taken on a digital camera in .mov format. I know that I can burn AVCHD files to a standard DVD for playback in HD on my blu-ray player. My question to anyone with experience is: Is there a way to accomplish the same thing with files captured in .mov format? I am considering a new dSLR to replace my current dSLR and HD camcorder (to combine the bst of both in one device.) It records video in .mov files (not AVCHD like my camcorder.) Is there a way to watch these movies on my TV, in HD, without having to plug the camera into the home media system? Can I created an AVCHD disc (through some sort of conversion) with files originally filmed in mov format? Thanks.
