Why does subler sometimes not work?

    So I have downloaded subler to change .264 files that are MKV to MP4. It works great most of the time, very fast etc.

    The only problem is the inconsistancy. I have some files that work fine on the 4.1 profile.

    Some of them return an error saying they canot sync to my ipad as it will not be playable. If I change the profile to 3.1, some files will now work.

    Then there's other files that won't work on any profile.

    What is up with the variation in what's fully convertable and what's not? I've read that some people use something called MKVtools. Is this better than subler?

    I noticed there is a new version of Subler out. Try using the new one.

    Yes! I use both. MKVTools for remuxing or transcoding MKV to M4V. If it's for watching on ATV2, and the video source is 720p, then it should only take 15 mins to remux! Next in Subler to enable tracks, add metadata, subs, and the HD flag. Then import it into iTunes Library, to watch on ATV2 and/or other iOS devices (iPhones and iPads).
