I have a movie (m4v/h.264/AAC) which plays fine on my Mac but I recently discovered that it wont play on my Apple TV3. After looking at the properties of this movie file I see that it has a profile High@4.1 but Apple TV3's only suport up to High@4.0. I think the only property that is making this video incompatible is the max video bit rate, all of the other properties look like they are supported in High@4.0.
How can I use ffmpeg to downgrade this video to High@4.0?
Or do I have to instead change the actual property (max bit rate) that makes this video 4.1 instead of 4.0? I am worried that if I just change the bit rate, although the file would then be compatible with High@4.0 it would still be 'tagged' as High@4.1 and therefore still wouldn't play on my Apple TV3.
