Re: Subtitles from Bluray are still not recognised

So currently I rip my blu-rays to play on my Apple TV. What does PGS subtitle support mean for this use case? If I understand it correctly PGS subtitles are images as opposed to srt which are text files that are overlaid on the video at the times specified by the srt. Since Apple TV's don't support ...

Re: *** AppleTV 3 and the New iPad (Presets) ***

My rips look great at the 22. I'm picky and have tried to find differences. I just can't see them.

Even at 22 it looks so much better than Apples 1080p, which even with better source material is so compressed bright skies and stuff look terrible.

Re: *** AppleTV 3 and the New iPad (Presets) ***

The Apple TV 3 only has a 100 Mbit Ethernet port, but that's still plenty even for streaming 1080p content. If you're using WLAN, maybe you're on a crowded channel or there's interference. Would also be interesting to know what you're streaming from. Under normal circumstances, buffering should onl...

Re: *** AppleTV 3 and the New iPad (Presets) ***

Check your switch/hub. Is it 100 mb ethernet? If you want faster you can go to 1gb ethernet by switching out that piece of hardware. If you have 1gb hub/switch then you should be good.

Re: *** AppleTV 3 and the New iPad (Presets) ***

I've been using high profile with 21 constant quality for 720p and 22 for 1080p. I'm surprised to see how low peoples constant quality is here. With 20 I was seeing some blu-rays get over 10 gigs which is pretty high considering I would like the option to add them to my new iPad. I've done some comp...

Re: High-Profile preset for iPad and Apple TV 2

Hmm. I didn't know an ATV 2 preset existed so I just modified the HP to lower res to 720p for all HD sources. It's worked without flaw so far, and I've converted a lot of my blu rays (probably about 50). So either I've been lucky of the framerate issue isn't very common.
