    I got a couple of movies That are both h.264 Mp4, they play fine in QT and they will play in itunes, but for the life of me I can't get them to play in ATV. As a matter of fact, after I try to play them in the ATV they go 'missing' from itunes. Meaning they have that big Q where the first screencap or cover art should be.

    Has anyone else had this problem????

    Edited....I can now play them in the ATV but every once in a while the Atv will crash and that lone apple will appear on the screen.

    I too have the same problem. I have converted 30+ movies using the AppleTV profile in VisualHub. Oddly, two concert videos fail to play in AppleTV, but play fine in iTunes. Both are under 4Gb, 4500kbps. Any ideas?

    I've also experienced the same problem. The only difference that I have noticed between the video that won't play and the rest of my videos is that the one that won't play is in a different aspect ratio. I'm not sure what it is, but it looks like a theatre aspect ratio. What about yours?
