mkvextract and mp4box mentioned in the above link are also available for windows. I would love to find something a bit easier to use that is PC based also. I have a quad core PC that blows away my little macbook in encoding speed.

I'm not on a Windows machine, but you never know. Maybe this is what you are looking for?

Hi folks,

I'm in the same boat. Loving my AppleTV! I've got several 480P DVDs loaded in there now, but I'd love to take my 720P BluRay rips (MKV) and convert them to AppleTV (HD) as well. I've tried everything and just can't get it working.

I know this is a MAC place but surely there's some Windows folks here? :D

(And yes, I know I can convert the MKV to 480P files but that kind of defeats the purpose...I'd like to convert them to fairly high-bitrate 1280x720 AppleTV files.)

Yeah, that's my boat too. I'm running a pair of Q6600 boxes which are perfect for video encoding. I just need some decent Windows tools to do this.

Obviously I'd love to go Mac Pro but I just can't swing the cost right now.

Thanks for the tip...tried SUPER and didn't much care for it. The sucker couldn't even play or open an MKV file... :mad:

It seems strange that there is software like VisualHub for Mac but nothing equivalent for Windows.
