EyeTV Software Updated to Support Direct 5G iPod Video Export

The headline says it all.

Here's a little more detail from Elgato Systems' press release: "Elgato Systems today released EyeTV software 1.8.4. This free update offers a convenient, one-step export of recordings to formats that are optimized for viewing on both video-capable iPods and on televisions connected to iPods."

"With EyeTV 1.8.4, EyeTV users can now export their EyeTV recordings to a video-capable iPod using two new preset formats. One preset uses QuickTime H.264 compression, Apple's preferred format. The second preset uses MPEG-4 compression, which encodes up to five times faster than H.264 and has higher resolution output. The MPEG-4 preset is recommended as it provides the best quality for viewing either on an iPod screen or on a TV screen. Neither preset requires QuickTime Pro."
