iPad encoding

Quote from: Chris Sanderson
If anyone has LLVJ-19 playing well on an Apple iPad, I would also be interested in the details of any trans-code necessary.

So far I have tried two conversions of LL-19 segments. First was just letting iTunes do it, a new menu option in iTunes 9.1 is to create an iPad version.

I also used handbrake with the settings discussed in this thread on their forum.

Both look great on the iPad. iTunes makes a new copy of the file so you end up with two showing, but there is no obvious indication of which is which when you sync the iPad. Using handbrake I created a new folder so I had a little more control.  

Not sure yet which is faster or more efficient.

Just an FYI - I downloaded the latest LR3 tutorial and used the iPad app "FileBrowser" to copy the extracted .mov files wirelessly from my network storage to the iPad's local 'filesystem'.  I was able to play them perfectly direct from the FileBrowser app without any conversion.

Great! That is the way it should work!  :)

FWIW, GoodReader also allows to upload  LuLa Video Journals or Tutorials and play them without having to re-encode them.
