    I usually rip DVD video via Handbrake using a variety of settings - either a default Apple TV or some slight modification. When I went to play one (streaming from my iMac) on my new ATV4 I got an "incompatible" message. Anyone else seeing this? Videos created from iMovie, for example, play fine.

    Any new suggested encoding for Handbrake?

    Does the movie play in iTunes?

    I have all my DVD collection ripped from Handbrake, most using ATV3 preset. All work fine on ATV4.

    I just noticed that my ATV4 is not playing 5.1 on my receiver. I tried selecting both audio options in the top menu. I also read on the handbrake forum that ATV4 apparently selects the first audio track, and does not default to 5.1 like the previous generations. I sure hope Apple has a fix for this.
