Can It Be Done with AppleTV?
Greetings all. Here's the situation. I am moving into a house off-campus with five of my college classmates next year. We all have computers with our own music and movie collections. Everyone else is running Windows XP and I have an iMac running OS X. We are also going six-way and pooling together our cash to get a large TV for our living room. What I want to do is get some sort of front-end for the TV that can stream our music and movies. I do not want to centralize the process and have one server hosting all of the tunes and flicks, but rather, have all six computers retain the data separately. Is this possible with the Apple TV? Thanks!
yes it is possible for the ATV to stream videos and music from different computers.
The kicker is you have to have itunes up and running on every computer in order for the ATV to see the libraries. streaming only works from windows xp -- not from windows 2000 -- but that shouldn't be an issue for you.
You can stream content from up to 5 different itunes libraries and sync one itunes librar.
you also have to consider that the ATV, out of the box, only plays H.264 videos. you have to hack it to play other types of videos as you can read about in the forum.
Hello all, Is there anyway to get the desktop displayed on ATV? I want to use it like a projector for a lg group. I can capture the desktop to mov. and covert for iTunes and seeit that way but I want to stream it live if there is a way, Thanks
