    Default AVI movies on Apple TV (1)?

    Just checking is there is a way to play AVI movies on Apple TV 160Gb. Currently I convert them to mp4 format via QuickTime.

    Definitely

    Perian + (nitotv or atvfiles) is the most common solution. However you can also use xbmc

    Perian + nitotv is ok, or you can use handbrake. now the apple tv is our home media centre with the assistance from handbrake, you may get some more tips from this Apple TV wiki: http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/AppleTV_2

    Uh, the link seems to be incorrect. Perhaps you meant Beginners Guide3 - AwkwardTV (I'm assuming you meant take 3 as it's the latest OS for these).

    As far as installing nito, NitoTV Take 2 - AwkwardTV

    Last I knew, ATVFiles had issues on Take 3, but you'll find it here: ATVFiles - AwkwardTV

    And, finally, I cannot leave a message without a plug for my plugin which works on this device, Sapphire, which works on ATV 1-3 and Leopard/Snow Leopard: Sapphire Browser - Home

    You really should install Perian as well: Install Perian - AwkwardTV One thing to note, that page talks about Perian 1.1.4, but Perian 1.2.2 does work on the AppleTV (even though it doesn't officially support the ATV, it has run there since version 0.5): Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTimeŽ components

    edit: Forgot to Add Perian info

    I forgot to mention Sapphire (no deliberate bias there gbooker)

    I have installed XBMC (plays everything) with a patchstick and opened up the hard drive with SAMBA. This allows .avi movies to be stored on the ATV. Mythbox works well with my MythTV server: I am now spoiled with commercial skipping.
