Converting AVI/DIVX movies question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've found various windows based applications to convert AVI/DIVX to my Apple TV. Some are really slow to convert a full movie if I use the options for 640x480 or 1024x?

 

Any suggestions for apps that might be faster than others?

 

Thanks

I'm currently using Cucusoft Ultimate Video Converter and Xilisoft Video Converter. Both have options for Apple TV and resolution of either 1280x720 or 640x480.

 

Question: Will it make a huge difference when playing on the big screen if I choose the 640 option?

 

Thanks

Not sure about the quality, I think that depends on the TV you have, and it's upscaling capabilities.

 

For speed, that also depends on the resolution and how fast your machine is.

 

I can give you my baseline, and you can compare your number to it, maybe.

 

I have converted 1 hour programming in 720x480 or 720x405 avi to mp4 for the AppleTV, and it takes about 14 minutes on a Mac Pro Quad 2.66, using VisualHub.

 

hope that helps
