Apple TV does not play divx; just a black screen
I've bought a second ATV and hacked it. My first ATV is hacked as well and plays divx perfectly (ATV files frappliance). I have copied all codecs from /Library/Quicktime of the first ATV to the same location of the second ATV. However, when I start a divx on the second ATV, the screen just goes black: no sound and no warnings about codecs. They both use the same TV via HDMI. Both ATV's a running the 'old' original fiirmware.
Anyone an idea what is going wrong?
If you mean Perian codecs then this is what i did:
download the perian package.
The necessary components are located at;
Unpack and copy Perian.zip, QuickTime/AC3MovieImport.zip and CoreAudio/A52Codec.zip to your home folder (/Users/frontrow/) on your Apple TV.
This should leave you with these files in your home folder:
Then you just have to move everything to the right place. I did this using SSH.
sudo mv /Users/frontrow/Perian.component/ /Library/QuickTime/
sudo mv /Users/frontrow/AC3MovieImport.component/ /Library/QuickTime/
sudo mv /Users/frontrow/A52Codec.component /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/
just changes the owner of the files
sudo chown -R root:admin /Library/QuickTime/Perian.component/
sudo chown -R root:admin /Library/QuickTime/AC3MovieImport.component/
sudo chown -R root:admin /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/A52Codec.component/
rogier the last part of Danny response should help you.
When you copied the plugins maybe you didnīt fix the owner/permits
