Just make sure your video is below 720 x 432. You should also change the extension from .mp4 to .m4v for chapters to show.


I'm ripping at 720*564 is that going to be a problem?
Still waiting for my Apple TV so I'm unable to find out.

More than likely with MPEG-4.

From the Apple's own AppleTV webpage:

H.264 and protected H.264 (from iTunes Store): Up to 5 Mbps, Progressive Main Profile (CAVLC) with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps (maximum resolution: 1280 by 720 pixels at 24 fps, 960 by 540 pixels at 30 fps) in .m4v, .mp4 and .mov file formats

Do you use 2 pass encoding?

Yep, every time. It really helps with the overall video quality and greatly reduces artifacts. Especially in action movies with fast moving scenes.


I'm just ripping a movie 2hrs 42mins long with 2 pass, AAC audio, 2500 bit rate (apple TV profile) and it's nearly taken 24hrs is this right?


Using the HB-AppleTV profile with Handbrake, a ripped Pal DVD of 2 hours should take about 3 - 4 hours on a G5 (2x2 GHz) and the same time or less on a Core Duo or Core2 Duo (*). In the average 12 -18 frames are transcoded per second. Both CPUs are working to capacity.

(*) On my MacMini (Core2 Duo 2 GHz upgrade) and 1 GB of RAM the same job is done in within 95 minutes at > 20 fps. Smile

I was doing about the same with my Mac mini with 2GB of RAM, but HB 0.9 appears to be giving me a slight boost with the Apple TV setting. Don't hold me to this, but I think my average was in the mid 30's (fps) last night. This was with a "turbo" first pass on a 2-pass encode.
