How to Convert and Play Video_TS folder via Apple TV 4 via Mac 10.12 

1. Load Video_TS files 

Start up this program, and then click disc icon and select “Load from folder” to import all Video_TS files. 


2. Decide output format 

Click Format bar and choose “Apple TV 3 1080P Dolby Digital Pass-through(*.m4v)” from “Apple TV”, which can be recognized by Apple TV 4 well. This format will ensure you 1080p quality with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound pass-through. Besides, MP4, M4V, MOV from “Common Video” is also a good choice. 

Read Apple TV Supported Video Formats: 

  • H.264 up to 720p at 30 frames per second (1st & 2nd generation); Main Profile level 3.1-channel, up to 160kbps per channel, 48kHz AAC-LC audio; file format is m4v, mp4, and. Mov stereo
  • H.264 up to 1080p at 30 frames per second (3rd generation)
  • MPEG-4 up to 720×432 (432p) or 640×480 pixels at 30 frame/s; Simple Profile up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz AAC-LC audio m4v. Mp4, and. Mov format stereo



a.When you choosing “Apple TV 3 Dolby Digital Pass-through (*.m4v)” as output, an AC-3 encoded audio track will also be included for Apple TV 4 to Pass-through Dolby Digital 5.1 sound (also know as AC3 5.1), so that it will work in surround sound when Apple TV 4 is connected to audio receiver, and in stereo when Apple TV 4 is connected with TV only. 

Note: Only when your movie has 5.1 channel, you will get the real 5.1 surround sound effect. (Learn>> how to solve No 5.1 Sound from Apple TV issue). 

b. With the right settings you can retain the quality of the original DVD while also saving space. This is particularly helpful when streaming over your network, depending on your network quality. Simply click Settings bar and you can tweak the settings to your satisfaction and even save it as preset. 

According to my experience, do not change frame rate to “24”, just keep the “Original” as the best optimal Frame Rate. 


3. Start converting Video_TS folder to Apple TV 4 

Finally click the “Convert” button to begin ripping Video_TS to Apple TV 4 format. After encoding process has finished successfully, go into the destination directory and drop the converted files into ATV 4. Once all this is done, open iTunes and click File > Add File to Library to add the video clips to your iTunes library. After that, simply drag the video from your iTunes library to Apple TV 4 in the Devices source list. 

After that, you can play and watch Video_TS videos via Apple TV 4 on HDTV without any problems in high quality and 5.1 surround sound. And to get 5.1 sorround sound, AV Reciever is necessary. Just enjoy!

    You really make it seem really easy with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really something which I think I’d by no means understand.

    Seems thinking of moving from Joomla to WordPress because is actually much easier to make use of and much more hassle-free. But the issue is I have many posts, and I can’t say for sure what to do… since I’m not a programmer or anything… How can I migrate from Joomla to WordPress?.
