I'm in the process of ripping my Blu-Ray collection to my NAS server, hopefully so I can play them on my AppleTV 2s. In short, it seems no combination of different settings (including Handbrake's native AppleTV 2 preset) gives me good end-results on AppleTV. The video just is not as smooth as the original. Note, the image quality is great. It's just during scenes with motion, every few seconds there's this little stutter in the video (audio is fine), and it's driving me nuts. I've tried many different combinations of settings. I've dropped the settings down drastically, so it's only doing a 720p rip, at a reasonable bit-rate. The exported videos play PERFECTLY on my Macbook Pro and even my Mac Mini, so I don't think it's the video files themselves. One of the Apple TVs is connected via Ethernet, the other by Wireless-N. I don't think it's a buffering issue, as when I pause the movie while it's 'stuttering', the progress bar shows a significant amount of video has been cached. So, am I just expecting too much??? I mean ideally I want to rip these things at 1080p, as a means of future proofing...but the Apple TV can't even seem to handle them at 720p. Do I need to move on to something other than an Apple TV (Boxee? Roku?)? What have others here experienced?
