Apple TV Preset Legacy

Post by Voiceinabox » Mon Oct 08, 2018 3:54 pm

Hi There

I was used to comfortably set the Apple TV 2 preset to convert my videos

Seeing that it's now in the "legacy" presets, I suppose there os a better preste by now, still compatible with Apple TV2, and my iMac 2017?

Any advice on that would be very appreciated - knowing I'm not exactly an expert in those things...

Try the Apple 720 HD preset.

Or even the corresponding 1080p preset, it'll also work with all AppleTVs from version 2 onwards. But not the 1080p60 preset, you need the AppleTV 4K for 60fps, IIRC.

The legacy presets have been removed on master branch and the upcoming 1.2.0 release. See the latest documentation for information on compatible replacements (scroll to end): ... esets.html
