Quicktime mkv mp4 passthrough greyed out


Gotta get my Downton Abbey on…. but the christmas special I grabbed is mkv, and won’t play on the apple TV. First world problems.

Found a TON of online problems/solutions, none of which helped. Final solution was damn simple – there are two mp4 formats, and the wrong one was auto selected

qt conversion 1

Check out file format MP4 ISMA… h.264 and Pass through are greyed out

qt conversion 2

But, toggle to the OTHER mp4 and…


qt conversion 3

And we are in business!
