    I'm running into a problem when converting my blu-ray movies to digital format..

    I'm using handbrake 0.9.4 the 64bit Intel version and VLC 1.0.2.. In handbrake I'm using the Apple TV preset and setting the FPS to "same as source" all the sources have a fps of 23.96, so I don't think it's a fps issue..

    The movie plays fine in iTunes but when I go to the Apple TV the movies larger than 4gb aren't showing up in my movie list..

    Is there any kind of work around for this??

    Any kind of help/suggestion would greatly be appreciated.. Thanks!

    Do you have the Large File Size box checked (immediately to right of Format dropdown box)? This must be checked for any files larger than 4 GB.

    Yes, I do have it checked.. The only other thing I can think of is, does VLC have to be 64bit as well?? I can't recall if my version 1.0.2 of VLC is 32bit or 64bit..

    VLC has nothing to do with encoding Blurays... it is only used for DVD sources if encryption is present.
