News about Apple TV
It is really a long time since Steve Jobs indicated that Apple was going to release Apple TV. In January, he said users would have to wait a bit before trying out the Apple TV for themselves and the device would be available in February. Until Mid-March, there is still no Apple TV. But fortunately, Apple Release the Apple TV Now, and you can get your Apple TV after 3-5 business days once you order it.





Capable of storing up to 50 hours of movies and TV shows, 9,000 songs, or 25,000 pictures, according to the specs provided by Apple, it will be great experience that different from the normal TV. You can buy movies or songs from iTunes store and transfer them to Apple TV; or just find a ripper/converter to help you convert your DVD/Video to Apple TV. Now a lot of software providers have found the opportunity and provided software like this kind for Apple TV, such as: DVD-ripper-copy.com, iPod-Soft.com, Mp4Converter.net, and the peripheral are also provided. Maybe a new sales upsurge will come forth after the release of Apple TV.

How to Get Video to Apple TV (For Win)?
1. Launch ‘Video to iPod Converter’,

b) Or right click on the blank area in the center of the main interface to import video files from your hard disk.

2. Set the settings
Just select the output format, the option and the video effect.

You can right click the video files and click ‘Params setting’ to open the option windows. (The same as “Effect”) This function let you set different options to different tasks.
For example, you set the conversion format for the first video as Mpeg, and you can set another video as H.264. So you can import several files at one time and set the suitable option for each task and then leave for any other thing. It’s really great, I love it.

After all the things done, click the ‘start’ button to start the conversion. Then a window will be popped up.


How to Get DVD to Apple TV (For Win)
Step1.Import DVD files
1) Rip your DVD files from DVD-ROM drive by clicking “Load DVD Files”.
Many friends ask me how to copy movies form DVDs to pc. This process calls ‘Rip’. Additional, ripping copyright protected DVD is illegal. This software helps you rip DVDs automatically. You needn’t know how to break the CSS protect. I really love this function.
2) Or Load .ifo files from your hard disk by clicking “Load ifo Files”.
3) Or right click on the blank area in the center of the main interface to import video files from your hard disk or DVD-ROM drive.

Step2: select subtitle, audio and output format
1) Regular DVD movie usually has several subtitles, like English, French, German, etc. You can select anyone according to your need.
2) Select Audio it the same as select Subtitle.
3) Format: this software can convert DVD to MP4 format which are fit for iPod player, it also can extract audio track from DVD and save as MP3 or M4A format which are fit for any other MP3 player.


Step3: Start Conversion
After all the things done, click the ‘start’ button to start the conversion. Then a window will be popped up.


How to convert video to Apple TV (for Mac)?
The Using of Apple TV Video Converter (Mac) is as simple as the two above, just click the “Add” button to add files, set the video/audio bit rate, set the frame rate and so on, then press the encode button, every thing will be done automatically.



How to Rip DVD to Apple TV (for Mac)?
The DVD to Apple TV Converter provides several default Apple TV video profiles, which you can use converting your DVD to Apple TV Video MP4 formats. The profiles will help you get the video you like such as minimal size video, high quality video, etc. It also has many settings you can customize, for example, convert DVD to Apple TV mp4 video by custom file size through setting video bitrate, rip DVD’s any titles or chapters, select target subtitle and audio track. You can get adjustable video what you want to play on your television through Apple TV.



Specific Information about Apple TV
For well connecting with TV, Apple sets a series of ports and interfaces, such as HDMI, Component video, Analog RCA stereo audio, Optical audio, 0/100BASE-T Ethernet, USB 2.0, 802.11n wireless networking, also a receiver that works with included Apple Remote. All of these ports and interfaces are added to Apple TV for displaying the same content on up to 5 terminal, make the whole family could experience in different way; the interface of Apple TV is elaborately designed to make it easy to use, even a kid will know how to control.



Apple TV perhaps is also a casual gaming device! We found some gaming strings in iTunes 7.1, like “iTunes could not sync the game’^1” to Apple TV ‘^2’ because … “, Maybe the gaming industry will bring a new incoming of Apple. Now the only question is who will take charge in the game development, Apple or the third party? Continue expecting,
