VisualHub 1.31 Adds Apple TV 5.1 Support
Wednesday, February 13, 2008
Posted by: Brian

Techspansion has announced the release of VisualHub 1.31, an update to its video conversion software for Mac OS X. The biggest news with this release is the addition of Apple TV 5.1 Surround Sound support. Videos with 5.1 AC3 audio can now be converted to play on the new Apple TV "Take 2" update with the new "Apple TV 5.1" iTunes tab preset.

Other new features and improvements in this release include:

- When using the iTunes tab, converted .mp4 videos over 150MB will no longer be FastStart-enabled. This will greatly speed up Artwork tagging for large files not meant for Internet distribution. Files under 150MB will be FastStart-enabled as usual. Files created using the MP4 tab are always FastStart-enabled.

- Converting different-aspect videos to TiVo format with stitching on now works correctly throughout the entire video (again).

Visual Hub 1.31 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later. It is priced at $23.32 and is a free upgrade to registered users. A free trial is also available.

Guess I will finally have to buy VH. From what I've read, it doesn't sound like HandBrake will be adding 5.1 AC3 support anytime soon. Sad

My biggest gripe with VisualHub has always been with its slow ripping speed. I tend to do much better with HandBrake.

I think Visual Hub is more like a Handbrake for dummies, and I like that Razz Some programmes are more like meant for pro's or people who really know what they want and how it's called correctly Wink

I think VisualHub and HandBrake are in different arenas. HandBrake is great if you're encoding from DVDs (or EyeTV recordings now), but VisualHub can handle a ton of other formats.

I wish I had the time to benchmark the two. Same file, same output results ect.
