720p MP4 Encodes?

Alex wanted to see if there’s any demand for 720p MP4 encodes. Currently, the only MP4 encodes he provides are 1080p. However, if there’s demand for 720p MP4 encodes, he’s willing to consider also encoding those (along with the 1080p MP4 encodes) and uploading them to a file-sharing site.

If you would like to see 720p MP4 encodes (or don’t care), please leave a comment in this post.


Converting .mov to .mp4 Guide

For the past few months, Alex had been providing us with 1080p MP4 HD trailers which you can use to play on your PS3 (PlayStation 3). I thought it’d be neat and in the spirit of this site to provide a guide/tutorial on how he accomplishes the conversion.

Alex has kindly written up a tutorial on how he converts the .mov HD trailers to .mp4 files: Convert .mov to .mp4

He usually uses Quicktime Pro to do the conversion, but since Quicktime Pro isn’t free, he went and searched for a free alternative:

So after a small research, I came across a program called Yamb. Produces the same results as QuickTime Pro… for free!

Alex is also intending to do another tutorial for converting using Quicktime Pro and you can expect that shortly.

We hope you’ll find it useful.


As a continuation from yesterday’s posted guide, Alex has provided an update on how to use QuickTime Pro for the conversion. The guide is still located at:

Convert .mov to .mp4

Any comments and feedback are welcomed.

Two New Members to the Team

I’d like to welcome 2 new members to our team: Manjunath and Alex

Awhile back, you may have remembered that I started on a side project that would provide mirroring to the HD trailers I posted. However, that took up too much of my time, and was ultimately abandoned. After that news was posted, Manjunath contacted us expressing interest in continuing to provide mirror links. At first I asked him to post the links in the comment section, but that didn’t really work out that well as Akismet was constantly blocking them, even when I had registered him as a subscriber.

Around the same time, Alex contacted us expressing interest in providing MP4 encodings of the HD trailers that people can use to watch on their Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

I needed a way to allow users to modify posts directly without giving them too much power. That’s when I found: Role Manager plugin for WordPress. It had exactly what I needed, specific knobs to enable/disable for particular users.

I have then created a new role: InfoAdder which has the ability to edit others’ published posts and save them. Soon, you’ll be seeing 2 new sets of links:

  • MP4 Encoded:
