Yes, you would. But there is a YouTube app on the AppleTV anyway.

2) Mirroring static screens (pics, web pages) would be flawless.
Expect a lag when changing pages, but yes.

3) Mirroring games from my iPhone or iPad would be okay, too (I didn't think of that, by the way. My son will love it).
It depends on the game. Card games and anything that is more or less static until you make a move should be ok. Racing games and action games in general, no.

4) AppleTV is more practical to connect and more tidy for the living room.
Correct.

5) But, I'm gonna have to converte several movie formats for iTunes, right?
Possibly. Depends on how your media is formatted now.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
