I think it is just amazing all of these wonderful reviews on pay software. No one ever provides features that aren't available on free software and no one ever mentions any weaknesses. Makes me very suspicious!

Uh, sorry don't know about that. At least it has some passthru option and it seems that the receiver is getting Dolby Digital.

AAC, A3C, I don't know about.

As a software developer myself, I want to support indie developers and small companies. Especially if they make a quality product and the prices in today's App Stores are absolutely ridiculously cheap.

But I guess I get what you mean, ppl mostly review when they are happy about the SW or they hate it. This causes the extreme opinions to be over presented.

I got Smart Convertor Pro from the Mac App Store.

Converts the mkv to mp4 in a few minutes.

Look into Subler to convert mkvs to m4v. You need something for the dd-ma though as the appletv can only play ac3 or AAC. It uses Perian to convert dts or ac3 to AAC so it might work. If you already have the ac3 track it will so passthru to allow for 5.1 sound on the ATV. Worth a shot I guess.

You can't automate the whole process in Subler in as simple a way as you can with iVI (Pro). The ?10 for iVI is a bargain given that you can install it on up to 5 computers. In any case while Subler is very good, I just feel it is not up to the capabilities as iVI or iFlicks. iFlicks has a very interesting option that will allow a remux of xvid in an avi container into an m4v container. Works great for me.

Subler supports batching and is 5 times faster than iFlicks / iVI.

Well maybe it's true in the subtitle situation, but there is no way that is the case otherwise. In addition, both iFlicks and iVI do so much more than Subler. I have used all three though I far prefer iVI and iFlicks.

I recommended you to try iFlicks. Look for it in the mac App Store. Or download a demo version.

Since i found it, no more problems with MKV.

Ivi is ok too, but sometimes, desynchronise the audio of some movies.

P.D. Sorry about my bad english.
