LR 2 Tutorial won't play on Apple TV
« on: August 01, 2008, 10:07:10 PM »

I just purchased the new LL 2 tutorial, however, I was quickly disappointed to see that the files will not transfer or play on my Apple TV. After the CR tutorial and recent VJ downloads, I was getting spoiled watching these on my 52" plasma TV via Apple TV.

Any thoughts to making the tutorial files Apple TV compatible?

P.S. I know that Michael has an Apple TV too, so I'm sure that have a place to test out the files.

Thanks.

They are too high a resolution for Apple TV. You will need to re-export them in AppleTV format using QuickTime Pro or a media encoder like MPEGStreamClip. This is detailed in the FAQ

Chris, thanks.

BTW, do you know where Jeff got that wine aerator gizmo? I've looked for one locally and can't find it. It was very cool.

Now I'm off to Alaska (Denali Park followed by a cruise down the coast to Vancouver) for the next 2 weeks. I have your LR 2 tutorial to keep me occupied on the plane ride and LR2 loaded on my MacBookPro.

Cheers.

In iTunes import the video files then highlight each in turn and from the advanced menu choose convert for Apple TV. Takes awhile for them to convert but they they then play fine.
