Blue-Ray Plugin Encoding/recoding Movie Files

Question

Hello.

I use Toast 10 Titanium containing the BlueRay Plugin.

I know, that Toast can convert and encode movies to use on the BlueRay Disc. What i want to know:

Is there a movie format which i can put on the Disc and that Toast don't need to encode again?

For example when i create a slideshow in iPhoto and then export this into a MOV file with H.264 codec in Full-HD, then Toast encode the movie again. It would be great if this encoding step will be not done if the movie file is in the right format/codec.

 

Thanks for your help.

The only format I'm aware of that Toast doesn't re-encode is an in-spec MPEG 2 video (or derivative such as .m2ts). I know it takes Toast a long time to do the encoding and you'd like to avoid that. If you didn't plan to give the Blu-ray discs to others there may be an alternative. My Sony Blu-ray player can play HD videos burned to data discs. There isn't any menu or chapters when doing it this way, but it can work. It won't, however, play videos in a QuickTime .mov container. You'd need the video to be .mp4 or other supported format. Check your Blu-ray player manual.

 

Still another option is to use an AppleTV or something similar to stream the video from your Mac to your TV. I realize this doesn't help when you actually need a Blu-ray video disc.
