Hi Everyone,

a quick question.

I was wondering if its possible to stream/play movies i have downloaded from a 3rd party (not through iTunes) onto my Apple TV.

I have not been able to insert them into my iTunes Library so im not sure if this is possible. is it?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.

David

You need to convert the movies, use a tool like handbrake, or my favorite (but not free) is Video Drive, It converts the files to .mv4 adds them to Itunes and adds the Cover picture and all metadata.

Until the jailbreak community releases some sort of software to play all formates of video files were stuck converting
