Hey so i dont know if this is the right plae to put this question so if its not direct me to the right one please. alright so i have a video.h264 that i want to join with the audio.m4a so i can watch the combined movie on my xbox. however, the xbox only supports h264 profile levels of 4.1 or below. i believe my video.h264 is 5.1 because when i put them together i get sound but no video. there is a h264 level editor for windows that does exactly what i want but i cant seem to find one for mac. does anyone know of a program or alternative way of doing this? thanks in advance.

    In my opinion Apple thinks that Apple users don't have to know about the different AVCHD profiles. Instead of that they use the 'Podcast, Bluray, DVD, HTTP, AppleTV, YouTube '-template approach.

    Did you try re-encoding with Compressor?

    I don't know anything about the XBox, but appearently you ran into the DOS FAT32 4 GB limit which we also encounter on SD en Compact Flash cards! Luckily for us Mac users QuickTime doesn't have such a limit!
