Re: Blank Video in Front Row

Frontrow well known bug... unless Appel correct it, go buy an Apple TV... I see. I have an Apple TV, and it works perfectly. I was just wondering what my solutions were. Manually editing in Subler isn't a big deal. But then subtitles can't be displayed in Quicktime X. I was wondering what people ha...

Blank Video in Front Row

Using Snow Leopard 10.6.3 Handbrake 0.9.4 64-Bit (along with VLC 64-bit) My encodes play perfectly on every device and every program. Unless I add closed captions to the encode and then Front Row refuses to play them. So I was curious, if anyone else has had this problem. I can open up the video in ...

Re: Most complex settings to be used across iPod Touch & ATV

Yeah. You may be able to figure out how to fix front row on google. There was nothing on google about it. But I started messing around with settings and the files. And it wasn't too hard to come up with the problem. Front Row was/is playing the subtitle (closed captions) track that was encoded alon...

I'm not sure why it would not work in Front Row. You may want to look here -> http://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=12204&start=50 it should give you some idea of what to use. I believe my Front Row is very very corrupt. That's the only explanation. If I use settings from the post you menti...

Re: Blank video in Front Row [SVN2845]

Front Row is a super buggy app. and after 2 years it can display a argb video track (for example a subtitlte track). Maybe they'll fix it before 2020. Here's hoping! Cheers. ;P But really, I'm gonna try to get to the bottom of this. I'm starting to really hate Front Row, but I can't deny the conven...

Using the new Snapshot SVN2845 64-Bit on Snow Leopard (Perian Installed). Some of my new encodes have not been playing in Front Row.

Re: AppleTV Preset, or stick with Universal

I don't really encode many HD sources so I think I'll be good on the end ^_^.
But if I do, I'll go back to the old AppleTV Preset w/o CABAC.
Thanks for the info ;).

Re: AppleTV Preset, or stick with Universal

Visually, the encodes should look very similar... the differences mainly impact file size. Some may a...

I'm getting either an iPhone 3GS or an iPod Touch 3G, I have an iMac, & an AppleTV.

Re: How do you update the Apple TVs library?

Why they haven't fixed this yet is beyond me... it really should poll for updates automatically (or receive notification from iTunes that an update is available and grab the changes).

How do you update the Apple TVs library?

It seems I can manually update the AppleTV if I quit iTunes & start it back up.

But does anyone know how to do so, other than that?
Does anyone even know how often the ATV updates it's information from iTunes?
I can't seem to figure it out haha.

Re: AppleTV: Always defaults to "Commentary" audio track?

There had to be a hack work around until Apple released HD movies. And now it works as expected. I'd bet it would have worked before just as well, we just didn't know how to do it right ;) But your main point is true, once Apple starts publishing multi lang videos it will be much easier to get righ...
