appleTV conversion problem


thumbprint

Question

I've been trying to convert some movies for appleTV by setting the video quality to High quality, but it doesn't work. The output preview will say the file be one size (ie- 177mb) but the finished product is a completely different size (ie- 12mb) and the quality is extremely low. It's like the the preset for the menu is off. The preset for the iPod Video works fine, but not for the appleTV. I end up having to go in and manually set the conversion settings and it won't let me keep the video at full frame when I do it manually. It won't give me an option for the full 720x480, only 640x480.

 

I've tried it on multiple computers and they're all doing the same thing.

 

Anyone have any ideas.

Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion, I have EyeTV and I remembered there was hw compressor.

It seems the speed is something that will not get improved unless I use something like this.

 

I ordered one from Amazon to see if it helps....

I have same problem with my software.

Do I have to reset this value everytime I go into custom?

 

 

I am very unhappy with the speed of the conversion as well, I am on 24" iMac with 2gb memory, it takes hours to convet a movie for my AppleTV.

 

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on improving the performance? I am thinking of asking for refund and try something else.

Have you checked into ElGato's Turbo.264 hardwre encoder?
