I'm an long time Apple developer who has been thinking about doing this very application myself. So other projects of mine are atv-bootloader, atvusb-creator and XBMC for Mac (XBMC developer).
stoth, if you want a good tester for this, PM or email me at davilla at xbmc dot org
I haven't had time to download and test the Mac version of Capture yet, but davilla was kind enough to forward a 2 minute test that he captured for me to play with:
1. It is a 1280x720 59.94fps capture from a HD telecast of what looks like Kirsty Alley and Mark Harmon in Summer School with two channel AAC audio, digitized at about 2150 kpbs (lower than I would normally capture with the default settings in ArcSoft Total Media Extreme)
2. I moved it over to my Windows machine and ran MP4 Converter on it and took the resulting MP4 file back to my Mac Mini, where I ran VisualHub in the MP4 Tab with both video and audio passthru.
The resulting file opens in QuickTime and plays with Perian v1.1 (although choppy, as this is my Single Core Mini and I am transcoding another project at the same time -- I would expect it would run smoothly on my other Mac Mini C2Duo, which is not available at this time).
So, the conclusion is that there must be some Mac only process that can convert these .TS files to play in QuickTime with Perian without any transcoding.
NOTE: I also ran it through VisualHub to transcode to iTunes Tab, Optimize for AppleTV 5.1 + 2.0, with Advanced Settings of 1280x720 and 2150 Kbps and the resulting file opens and plays in QuickTime, is editable by MPEG Streamclip and plays on the AppleTV and will sync with iTunes with the "fool iTunes" trick.
