In case you missed it, Compressor has been updated.

 

Several people have asked about workarounds for encoding 1080p to Apple devices – particularly Apple TV.

 

This update provides that 1080p capability as a preset.

 

BTW, Software Updates was "silent: about the availability of these updates (performance improvements for Motion and FCX as well), but a trip to the App Store located them for download.

 

Good luck.

    Just tried the new YouTube/Vimeo presets. Export failed with QT error code -108.

    Try again using single pass. But I'm not in good hope that this update lets me use this program instead of Handbrake and MPEG streamclip. :-(

    Single pass worked but the file size is 4 times bigger than with MPEG streamclip with not much better quality.

    I tried the MyCometG3 x264 plug-in and it seems to encoded faster.

     

    Personally, I use x264 over Quicktimes h.264. Better encoding quality, faster encoding and better control over settings's.

    Been using it for years.

    BTW, I don't understand why the YouTube (for Vimeo too) settings has the Framer Reordering selected. YouTube in it encoding directions instructs to have this setting off.

     

    Upload to Youtube and Vimeo from Compressor works.

    Must have to do with file size. Selecting only a minute works. The whole movie is 15 min. Tried again with error -108.

    Thanks! Works perfect. Now Compressor behaves like Handbrake. Small files. Good Quality. And what is best, no failed exports after hours of encoding without information what went wrong.

    But I found that the processor load with x264 is much higher than on using h264. Almost 1600% on my macpro.

    Also the file size is a little bigger with x264.

    So I will stick to MPEG Streamclip (only 400% cpu load)  and h264 presets for now.
