    Hey there.
    I was transferring some movies to my iPad 3 as I'm taking a long flight at the end of the week and want something to watch in my iPad.

    I have all my blurays ripped to my computer so I can stream them to my Apple TV 3 and watch them without having to get the bluray.

    Anyways, my point being, I found some movies which I just can't transfer to the iPad. iTunes tells me it's not compatible.

    This is one of them. Any idea what is causing the incompatibility? (As I said they're played fine in the Apple TV)

    My iPad 1's the same way. It'll do ATV2 movies but not ATV3. I think it's the high-profile setting.

    I guess you're talking Handbrake presets? In my case these didn't come from Handbrake.

    What I do is rip the movie to MKV with MakeMKV and then put it into a M4V container using Subler. (Much more faster than handbrake as it throughputs the video).

    That's why I don't really understand it. Why some movies will transfer and some other just won't. :confused:
