Odd behavior with m4v files on AppleTV
|Reported by:||jbuzbee||Owned by:|
Beta 6 on AppleTV 2.01. I recently Handbrake-ripped a few DVDs using the pre-set AppleTV settings in order to get the new enhanced audio support, but I am seeing some odd behavior from Sapphire when I attempt to play them back. The first odd thing I noticed is that when I navigate to the movie in the virtual All Movies menu, the "size" field shows 32K when in reality the files are around 2.4 Gig. The files are on a network-mounted drive (I've tried both NFS and SMB with the same behavior). When I select the movie, I get a quick "Loading DVD.." display and then I get dumped back to the menu or the Finder crashes.
The really odd thing I see is that when I navigate to one of the movies directly, i.e. not through the Virtual directory, Sapphire will play the files correctly. And when I stop, the movie, the display shows all of the correct A/V data including the proper size. But when I go back to the movie through the Virtual menu, the A/V data is still minimal with the 32K size and attempting to play fails.
I've tried clearing the metadata, turning AC3 passthrough on and off and renaming a problematic file with no change in behavior. Looking at the plist data, I see that the size is negative, but this appears to be the case with a number of my movies. Playing the files back in Quicktime on my MacBook? is successful as is playing the files with ATVFiles on the AppleTV.
