Thread: Ipad movies...

  1. #1
    Default Ipad movies...
    Hope this isnt the wrong forum, sorry if it is.

    I've converted some movies for my iphone (my own movies), especially stuff for my kids. I'm wondering if anyone thinks there should be a difference for converting movies for the Ipad?

    Doesn't the screen have a higher resolution? I think i read that somewhere. I'm thinking 720p might look pretty nice on it, if i can get the mb/gb down (depending on the size of the movies of course).

    Any ideas, thoughts on it?

    thanks,
    texascop

    I am sure they will have a slightly different encode bitrate or something. Later tonight I am gonna check handbrake forum to see if they have a new preset out for it.

    Haven't used Handbrake in a while, generally use DvdFab (full version), some xillisoft software i happened upon, "Super"...etc.

    I'd imagine that the "iphone conversions" should work, might be a smaller picture i suppose, idk for sure.

    Hey Cerote...unfortunately my ipad won't be here till tomorrow (monday). I'm gonna give the "apple tv" settings a try. It's that the best you've come up with so far? Or should i say, do you believe that, that setting is the best?

    Peace,

    I don't believe it to be the best preset for it but will do till the handbrake forum figure it out.

    Will have to look when I get home. Do you see the other presets in handbrake like iPhone/iPod?

    K, was checking at some of the handbrake forums. Gonna try one of the suggestions and will get back to you.

    High Profile preset, drop the width to 1280 (if you're going to use the file on other HD devices) or 1024 (for iPad only), and drop the AC3 passthrough if you're not going to use the file on other devices.
    This is what I am testing. Got 10 mins more left on encode.

    Just used that advice and it plays great and just a tiny bit smaller than appletv setting.

    I've been playing stuff that was encoded at "iphone" settings with Handbrake and it looks fantastic.

    I just used the Apple Universal setting for mine and it rocked.

    Default Handbrake
    I used the Apple TV settings as suggested, and it came out great! Very pleased with the results.

    If you want a higher res and a little bit smaller vid try my second setting. That setting will also let it look good on other HD playing devices. Going to try one of those on my ps3 when I get around to it. That way you won't have multiple encodes of the same file.

    If you don't have the presets in the preset window there is a button to download the presets.

    Im using airvideo free on ipad and the free server, it plays the movies that the ipad doesn't support and converts them on the fly like simplify media and orb do. Nice tho as both halves, the ipad and the pc server app are free.
