Question

I have a question about the Asus TF101 Tablet

by jeffalo13 / June 3, 2011 9:51 AM PDT

I'm thinking about getting one for mostly media purposes. TV, streaming, movies, music, etc. However, a lot of my content is from Apple, or converted to .m4v so that is playable on my Apple TV. If I bought this tablet, would it have a conversion software, or some way that I can actually use the things I've already bought? Thanks.

If we dismiss any "protected" content.

I've had great luck with HANDBRAKE when I need convert content. But if you were looking at a tablet, what stops you from avoiding all this, the DRM issue and more by getting the iPad?

iPad vs Transformer

Much more space, for a much lower price. Also, a larger screen + a better resolution.

What I know

May not matter. If I didn't want the trouble or work, I get the iPad out.

As for Handbrake, it's what I use and works fine.

As to what file types work with the Asus, NO ONE can know that since the encoding appears to be in a sort of change. But if you want to hedge your bets then you would never dismiss having a few converters at the ready. Also you would search for folk that would offer "presets" for Handbrake for that device.

The only files that should not work are any with DRM. If you ask what DRM is, then it's something written about at http://www.roughlydrafted.com/RD/RDM.Tech.Q1.07/2A351C60-A4E5-4764-A083-FF8610E66A46.html and many other places. Any explanation I give would pale in comparison to what you can find on the web.

Hope this clears this up.
