Re: "I Love Miami" can't get it to encode

I have not tried setting the framerate yet. I will give that a shot today. Any suggestion of what I should try it on first?
Thanks

Re: "I Love Miami" can't get it to encode

I should have given more detail. I have tried MacTheRipper and another program called 0SEx 0.0110a1.

"I Love Miami" can't get it to encode

I have been trying to encode a copy of a movie I own "I Love Miami". I have tried everything that I can think of but nothing has worked. I have tried every ATV encoding and I get all the same results. It encodes a choppy movie (the movie looks like its missing chunks of frames). ALso as the video pl...

Re: Re-encoding AC3 Only Movies

The file size stayed identical in my case. There is no difference between the m4v or the mov. Are you saving as 'a self-contained movie'. There is no really re-encoding - i think. I am not an expert. But when I save as it takes about two minutes to save a movie. I think if it were re-encoding the en...

Re: Re-encoding AC3 Only Movies

I got it to work. By adding a 1/2 sec AAC track at the beginning of the movie I was able to play the Movie on the AppleTV. It does save it as a .mov instead of .m4v - but at this point who cares. I can save all my old movies. For fuure encoding I'll make sre I use both tracks to avoid this issue. 1....

AC3 Passthrough

I have been trying to encode a Ripped DVD (using MacTheRipper - Smokin' Aces) for Apple TV. But one of my main concerns is being able to keep the sound quality as possible. Based on what I have read the best audio option would be to use AC3 passthrough. I know that quicktime will not be able to deco...
