Convert movies in iTunes

Post  mozzer502 on Sat Mar 21, 2009 7:22 pm

Hi
I have 300 or so movies and 200 or so TV shows in iTunes. Most of them (95%) were converted to MOV by VideoDrive, the remaining we're originally in MP4 format.

Now that I'm thinking about buying an AppleTV, I need to reconvert all those movies to the ATV format. I'm hesitating because it took forever to get all the right movie data and images, even using VideoDrive.

Can we have a feature that runs over an existing library and just converts the format whilst retaining all the meta data?

thanks

I've bitten the bullet. I've purchased both a Legato Turbo H.264 and an Apple TV.

Because of the way iTunes stores TV Shows I can't just point VideoDrive at the directory tree and have it convert the shows to h264, so I'm stuck with using the iTunes "Create Apple TV Version" function which is horribly slow.

Any chance of expanding the Script menu to include a "Make Apple TV Version using VideoDrive" option? I don't mind if the show appears twice, I can delete one manually.

Thanks

Yes we can, and yes we will. We will include this feature in an upcoming version of the 1.13 series.

I used Avex DVD to iPod Video Suite on this. It's a One-click, All-in-One solution which helps you create iPod movies from DVDs, TV shows and home videos:
- it supports conversion of any DVD-video standard compliant disc into iPod MPEG-4 format, as well as into the H.264 high quality video format.
- it can convert almost all other video formats into iPod Video format. Always does a good job in conversion of TIVO files, MPEG-encoded videos, Windows Media videos (WMV files), RealMedia RM files, QuickTime MOV videos (not QT, though) and, of course, AVI files (in any of these formats: standard video for windows, DivX encoding and also XviD files) into iPod Video format.
