Where am I going wrong?
Can you post the video online so that I can check it too? If it's too big, just slice out a short segment of it (let me know if you need help with it), and, after checking out it can't be processed by Subler, making it online?

iTunes 11 fixes this.

The iflicks site says it is automator friendly so is there an Automator script that allows you to watch a folder and automatically import all of the video files and convert them. Once that is done it would empty the trash bin.

I had an MKV file that came in at 8.88GB, and I funneled it to apple itunes in the appletv3 choice. The producing computer file is 3.52GB. This seems like a large pressure without dropping excellent.

It seems like Iceandlime had a very similar response. Mic J has the answer.

Is doing this going to have any negative quality issues?
