iPad and iPhone stream to ATV4

Which preset would be best to use for an iPad Air or iPhone 6s when streaming to an Apple TV4? Normally I would use the ATV3 preset when streaming from my Mac to an ATV4... but what about when streaming from these iOS devices to the Apple TV4? - Can these devices handle streaming those larger files ...

Apple TV3 Decomb on or off

I see the Apple TV3 preset has Decomb turned on by default. For DVD's made in the last few years, is this necessary to leave on? Why does the Apple TV 2 preset not have it on as a default setting like the ATV3? I know leaving it off speeds up conversions... and I would rather it not do any kind of s...

Re: BluRay - ATV3 & iPad Air

Thanks for the good info - what are your thoughts about the other tweaks to the ATV3 preset? - changing the preset's loose to strict anamorphic. What does that even do?

Any tweaks for converting blu-rays to iPads for playback on iPad Air or Retina Mini?

Thanks so much!

Re: BluRay - ATV3 & iPad Air

I know the ATV3 is for the ATV3 - but there are always a few recommended tweaks beyond the preset. Any comments on the anamorphic setting set to strict and web streaming...? - are any current, newly released BluRay's not interlaced?

Hi, #1 - What do you think are the best settings for ripping a BluRay for the ATV3. I read in other forums to use the stock ATV3 preset from the nightly build, then turn on Web Optimized to speed up start/load times and set anamorphic to strict. Can someone explain the difference Strict vs. the Pres...

Hi, I ran the ATVFlash software on my ATV2 so I could now stream full size DVD Rips using MDRP or Ripit. My system is all gigabit ethernet. I noticed the picture looks good but a bit fuzzy/jerky at times. The author of ATVFlash said that the ATV2 can stream these large full size ripped files. Obviou...

Re: ATV & iPAD2 settings

Which preset did you start with, then add these tweaks?

How do I add the 'film' tune - couldn't quite understand the link you gave me.

Can you just post your entire string and what Preset you started with?

Looks good on both iPad2 & Apple TV2? - Nice.

Thanks!

Re: ATV & iPAD2 settings

What does that string do for the encode, picture quality or file size or encoding speed?

Also - I thought the iPad2 frame size was 1280x720 so why would I want to use a smaller maximum frame size?

Thanks so much for your assistance!

Re: ATV & iPAD2 settings

OK - but are there any tweaks you would do to the Apple TV 2 preset?

Do you agree that using the ATV2 preset is a good way to make videos for both iPad2 & ATV2? - or if my target is mostly the iPad2 or laptop screen - use iPad2 preset?

I've read many posts about people suggesting to use the Apple TV2 preset as a good all around setting for both the ATV2 and iPad2. There used to be some additional tweaks to these that helped quite a bit. ref=3:mixed-refs=1:bframes=3:me=hex:subq=7:b-adapt=2:8x8dct=1:weightb=0:trellis=0 62%CRF Detele...

I understand. It's just that when searching around for optimal Apple TV settings, I had found several posts with good ideas and updated/modified advanced strings that look better than the presets. I'm guessing that with a screen as small as the iphone, the presets will work just great. But the quest...

Re: Best format for Mac

Are there any advanced settings you like for the iPhone or Apple Universal preset?

For the ATV - I use 62%, Decomb and Detelecine on - default. - Should I use these for the iPhone & Universal presets as well?

Re: Finest Rip

Quick question -

Using the Dev snapshot - when setting the constant quality to 62 - do you prefer 62.25 or 61.76?

In this version, you can't just select 62 even.

Thanks,

Re: Apple TV Constant Quality

I watch the Apple TV on a 56" and 61" DLP HDTV. Does this make a difference?

I'm not converting stuff like Pixar, etc. - just your basic recent release DVD's.

Still stay at 59% or would it be better to bump it to 60 or 61%?

Thanks!

Apple TV Constant Quality

With the new version, I see that the Apple TV preset uses constant quality. With this setting, you don't need 2 pass encoding? Also - the preset is set at 59%. Is there any benefit of moving this to 60-62%? I've read in other posts people moving it as high as 62%. I'm encoding regular DVD's for my A...
