Re: ATV 4K H.264 Baseline Profile Preset - Which one is correct?

From what I can see in Plex on the ATV4K and on my MacMini, the settings say 'Play Original Quality' this is the only one checked. All the ones that mention Convert to 1080p etc. are unchecked.

Thanks. It's definitely very odd. Just to clarify, is your model AppleTV6,2/A1842?
Yes, A1842 (64GB) with tvOS 11.4 (15L577)

Been playing with Plex for around half an hour now and its running everything I throw at it, not like anything from iTunes/Computers. All other apps work great too!

Re: ATV 4K H.264 Baseline Profile Preset - Which one is correct?

Another update: I copied these files to my MacBook Pro's iTunes and ran them on the ATV4K. Same results, frame rate drop at the same places. On regular ATVs files play fine. Files with a limited VBR play fine too. This is looking more and more like some bottle neck between how iTunes is handing the ...

Some more updates, maybe someone knows a little that can help.

I have even gone as far to get a new APC H15 Power Conditioner. One thi...

Re: ATV 4K H.264 Baseline Profile Preset - Which one is correct?

Gotcha. So I understand whats happening in handbrake, if Level 4.0 is a max of around 20 mbit/s, why does the preset set the cap at 25 as when I do an encode its peaking around 20-30k in some sections? or am I confusing the difference between vbv and the limit set with level 4.0? Thanks for answerin...

Should using Profile 4.0 over 4.2 make any difference at 1080p 24fps?

Re: ATV 4K H.264 Baseline Profile Preset - Which one is correct?

Finally got a day off to play with this again.It looks like whenever the video goes over a bitrate of 22500k, the ATV starts to freeze up. I found a few encodes that have high bitrates over 20k, and when they get around 22500k, it starts to hiccup. I have a few new encodes cooking limiting it to 16k...

Hopefully Apple will replace the device tomorrow fingers crossed :) My older ATVs play these all just fine. The thing about the NLMeans or raising the RF, is that I could see the difference.

Re: ATV 4K H.264 Baseline Profile Preset - Which one is correct?

Over night I re-encoded a few trouble movies that I was originally doing on the 1080p30 preset with a CQ of 20, yet this time adding: :vbv-maxrate=12500:vbv-bufsize=12500. On VLC these files are now giving me a max bitrate of 15-17k in the trouble areas instead of 24-30k+. Both movies run super smoo...

Thats good information to know, thanks I'll try that for sure. BTW What is the lowest for 1080p encoding? Looks like 3.2 or just do 4.

Re: ATV 4K H.264 Baseline Profile Preset - Which one is correct?

I have just done a few encodes using Level 3.0 and they are running fine at CQ of 22 and 20 on the ATV. Checked all the trouble areas with MPC-HC on my PC and the bitrate is floating around 12k instead of 24-30k+, and the main parts of the movies are around the same 4-5k. Maybe this is why they say ...

Re: ATV 4K H.264 Baseline Profile Preset - Which one is correct?

Thanks, I'm running a wired network to the ATV. Test on the cable show its fine and I'm getting full 200mb from Optimum on the ATV via a speed test. So I think its pointing to the ATV itself. Though I did do an encode using Profile 3 and it seems to be fine. Its so strange as a regular new ATV (non-...

Here are some of them. The frame drops are not constant.

I would like to know which is the correct profile to use as there is conflicting information online as mentioned above.

Thanks for the help in advance.

I was doing a little reading on the ATV 4Ks H.264 playback and encoding, and I'm a little confused with the options, as I'm having frame drops during playback from Handbrake encoded movies (not pointing the finger at Handbrake :).

Re: AC3 from DTS not correct Builds 4582 thru 4686 maybe mor

I just took a look at Build 4696, I have 'High Profile' as my main preset. If I load in a video file the AC3 mix down loads up a bitrate of 160. It only changes to 640 if I load the video file, then reselect the 'High Profile' preset and then click on the AC3 line in Handbrake. This happens in the o...

Wow, 6-channel at 192 kbps... that would have sounded like liquid ass even with a top tier AC3 encoder. LOL yes it did! I see the problem now, the bitrate was way too low. But I wasn't changing anything from the default preset settings, so I guess this was a small bug that's now been fixed? Would t...

AC3 from DTS not correct Builds 4582 thru 4686 maybe more

I have had a lot of encodes now from .mkv's via MakeMKV, that for sure in Builds 4582 thru 4686, the audio conversion to AC3 is not correct but the AAC mixdown is fine. I found this after installing a new Denon AVR-1713 receiver today, previously I just ran my systems in Stereo. On the ATV I can hea...

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

I would just like to point out, that I think its been more of a Software upgrade here. Yes the ATV3 puts out 1080p, but I have found that the ATV2 plays them just fine too. I've encoded 10 films now on the High Profile settings using the latest Nightly Builds, and they have all run fine on my ATV2, ...

New vs Old Apple TV Presets

Hi I'm very excited to try out the new Apple TV 2 preset, I have a question about the max rates in the Old Preset. When I previously encoded 'The Hurt Locker' there was a lot of issues with stuttering, and around this time 'vbv-maxrate=9500:vbv-bufsize=9500' was added to the AppleTV preset. Is this ...

ClownBD will combine the files into one .m2ts, you just have to highlight the version you want, this is done on the screen which looks like a Text file after the first scan of the BluRay file set.

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Znomorph, what version of Stargate are you trying to convert? I had no problem converting this from BluRay via AnyDVD HD > ClownBD > Handbrake. I have the original disc that first came out well over a year ago, I know there is a new one late last year.
