this is not directly about Handbrake but closely related.
I just got my new Apple TV 3 (had the original one (not v2!) before that) and had to discover that the new Apple TV does not recognize my AC3 tracks.
Whenever I did not use Handbrake, because the video itself was already compatible with the AppleTV, I did it by remuxing.
I used eac3to to demux the original file into it's components (.h264 & .ac3) and also to convert the .ac3 into an .aac track.
Then I would use mp4box to remux it all together:
Code: Select all
mp4box.exe" -add "output.h264:fps=23.976" -add "output.aac.m4a:fps=23.976" -add "output.ac3:fps=23.976" -new "%%I-new.m4v"
I compared a file I created with Handbrake (those still work perfectly!) with my own creations (via. MediaInfo) and only found 2 differences:
Codec ID: mp42 (in Handbrake) vs. M4V
Format Profile: Base Media / Version 2 (in Handbrake) vs. empty
I also checked with subler (on my mac) and adjusted my files (same tracks selected, same alternate group, language settings etc.) and also did "optimization" (it interleaves the tracks apparently), but nothing helped.
Do you have any suggestions what I could try to do?
Thank you all in advance
