    HANDBRAKE ROCKS

    you play the dvd first, go to handbrake (title) to see which title is playing (they have a lot of dummy titles on dvd's)

    has presets for atv and it sets the appropriate settings, simple and even its dock icon shows progress bar so you can keep it working in background



    just simple wonderful and works

    The big plus with .m4v files is it can hold movie information and images (metadata). You can use programs like Identify for Mac to automaticly lookup the information.



    Is the new one out yet?



    I've been meaning (but forgetting) to pick up an Apple TV so my kids won't muck up the iPad at 4-5am while I try to get another half hour of sleep.



    1080p support removes my last nagging concern!

    I still love that program, but it's been deprecated.



    So, I just use Handbrake and use the Built-In Apple TV presets. But I use MDRP to rip everything and then do batch encoding's when ripping multiple features, as ripping then bulk encoding is easier (to me at least), than letting HB do both ripping and converting.

    Wow. A spambot being honest.



    And stealing text from another spambot, it seems.
