(First, sorry if my english is not perfect, I’m french)
I have some problems with HD files (720p) : with MKV (2 to 5 Go) files, videos are very jerky with Saphhire and Nito TV, and just a bit better with XBMC and Boxee.
On my MacBook, these MKV videos works perfectly and I have no problems when I run them.
I read on a forum that 720p MKV files were easy to read and that 720p HD videos were smooth on previous ATV firmware versions (with ATVflash), but no longer since 3.0…
Thus i tried to convert MKV files into AVI and MP4 format with VisualHub V.1.3.4, but there are still stuttering that can be observed as a jerkiness when the camera pans in the movie (and even on my MacBook this time once converted in AVI ou MPG).
If it’s no more possible to read properly MKV directly (it’s a pity), I would appreciate to successfully convert MKV into an HD file in 1280x720 that works correctly on Apple TV.
Any idea ?
Nota : I use an Apple TV 160GO, bought 2 weeks ago, with 3.0.1 firmware, and I use aTV Flash Version 4.0.3 Released.
ATV is connected with YUV Monster cable on a Sony Plasma TV KE-P42XS1. I selected the screen resolution : 1080i HD
