Well here is a quick update on my end Talbain:
I have succesfully converted m2ts to wmv hd using this pretty cool tutorial:
I dont know if its old school but it at least did the trick. Highly recommend you guys checking it out!
I did it slightly different than what the OP of the tutorial advises. I basically skipped the middle step and went m2ts->wmv @17Mbps. Unfortunately the 5 min clip I was playing with took ~2.5 hours to convert!!! =(
At the end of the conversion however, the wmv file at 17Mbps looked EXACTLY the same as the raw m2ts file.
I was able to stream the wmv file to my xbox 360 with beautiful results!PROS:
Can now stream wmv files with original m2ts video quality directly to my xbox 360 (both files were approx same file size).CONS:
5 min clip took 2.5 hours of processing with a decent system (2.3GHz dual core, 4GB RAM, 32 bit OS)Summary:
I am going to call this option A. =)
Fill me in on how your efforts go buddy!
Thanks for the posts all!
