Hey guys...just wanting an opinion..... when you convert your DVDs using Handbrake to play on your ATV, do you create just the one version and use that to put on your ATV, iPad and iPhones, or do you create separate conversions, one for your ATV, one for your iPhone etc based on the different presets in Handbrake.

I know the file is bigger using the ATV preset, but if I were to create a different version for each device, i would be sitting here forever encoding.

just want to find out what other people do.

Thanks.

I jsut use Apple TV preset, as it can make the most of HD feature and watch HD videos on iPad or iPhone 4.
Just follow this preset tips: http://www.ifunia.co...ad-iphone4.html

Hi, klytia, thanks for the welcome. ;)
Yeah, Handbrake is great, Ilove it too, and now handbrake and iFunia is a cool combination for my videos&movies conversions.

I just did one from an old Music DVD and with the tips from Lemoon, i had some music video playing from the iPad 2 to the ATV in no time. The great part is the ease of doing this so take note guys & girls, pity we cannot make this a sticky for a while....

Might look into this as there might be some functionality that I haven't found in the admin settings.....
