tv does'nt support .MOV, any alternative render options?
on Apr 2, 2013 at 11:32:47 am

in his blog http://www.videocopilot.net/blog/2007/0 ... -settings/
andrew suggests to use the quicktime render option.

i need to publish a short teaser for an office event but the samsung TV that would be playing the clip file does not support quicktime (.mov) format.

the supported codecs are .mp4 , .mkv, .avi, .wmv9

from these list, im not sure which format displays the same good quality as Quicktime - animation render option.

this site shows the complete supported codecs of the TV
http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/lear ... b_faq.html

would greatly appreciate your replies

The extensions are containers, not codecs.
H.264, for example, can be .mov, .mp4, .f4v just to name a few.
wmv 9 is a codec within wmv which can contain other wmv variants such as wmv 8, wmv 7, etc.

Unfortunately your links are bad. Please fix if you want to share.

[hoff man] " the supported codecs are .mp4 , .mkv, .avi, .wmv9"

As Craig pointed out - those are architectures (buckets_ not codecs.

Both of your links were truncated - I can't look up what the TV can do.

Likely it'll do h.264 MP4 files. What are you using as a compression tool? If you're using compressor 4, you can make this sort of file.

Handbrake can probably do this for you as well (for free) - use the Apple TV setting.

Hope that helps (until you get us the other information!)

Best,
