OK. I've been tasked with a minor project - taking movie rips, in this case, Blu-ray rips that have been super compressed - and getting them to play properly on the iPad. They play fine on the MacBook Pro, but nothing I do seems to make this work the way I need it to. I've tried MPEG Streamclip, QuickTime/Perian, Handbrake, and even iTunes. Nothing I do seems to matter. I'm guessing these weren't converted properly. What happens is: File gets created, but is HORRIBLE quality. Even with the filtering options of Handbrake. If I increase the quality setting, then I end up with the movie playing audio behind a white screen; no video. Tried using MPEG Streamclip's default AppleTV settings, and it yells about framerate, which is blank. Putting that to 29.97 (or any other value) throws an invalid movie error. Created a simple MP4 file stripped down from the original thinking I would just play in OPlayer HD. It does play, but extremely slow, and with no audio. Imported the full movie into iTunes and tried to do a conversion that way to the iPad preset. Ended up with a white screen and no video. Opened in QuickTime and tried to save a MOV file that I could convert. Video played fine with choppy audio. Found a good setting for video in Handbrake, but the audio is screwed. Anything else to try?
