Just enjoying the stunning 1080p video quality that my EOS 550D camera can film at on a Panasonic vera 42 in plasma screen. I’ve been editing the videos in Final Cut (MAC) and then rendering out as Quicktime H264 at 1920 x 1080p at various fps. I’ve played them back from my MacBook pro into the TV via hdmi but the laptop struggles sometimes to play the 1080p videos fluidly unless they are well compressed.
Question is will the WD tv live help me playback really good quality 1080p material and what are the maximum fps and bit rates I could expect for fluid motion? Should I continue to render in H264 mov format and will the live play 25, 30 or 60 fps videos at full HD or just 24 fps?
Seems to be a better solution that hooking up the laptop to the tv each time and having to run it in clamshell mode to get the best video performance. Just want to copy my mov files and play them without problems!
Thanks in advance!
