Noob here, Trying to Learn how to Convert anything larger down to 720P.

Dec 20, 2012 at 4:46 PM

Love MCE Buddy (although seems to cut some parts of shows out but not to often). I am trying to remove commercials (got that part right), convert my WTV files to a more friendly format (I use MP4 is that the best?) and for all files bring the quality down to 720p or if the file is a lower quality then leave it at that. I have it set (I think) to keep audio as it is, I prefer 5.1 or better so I think that is best setting for me. Thanks for any help in advance!!!

1. MP4 is good, depends upon what the target it, personally I love MKV

2. Set the Resolution slide on the Conversion task page to 720 (it will downconvert all higher and leave lower alone)

3. For 5.1 or better, Check allow Multi Channel Audio on Conversion task page

1. Check the resolution slider.

2. Some profiles (such as the mobile profiles) have a fixed resolution e.g. XBox is 720 pixels, PSP is 480 pixels etc - what profile are you using?

Need the conversion log for the file being converted.
