    Default Playing videos through network?

    Hi.

    I am considering purchasing an AppleTV. Is it possible to stream H.264 videos from a Samba-mounted network drive? I would like to use the AppleTV interface.

    Thanks.

    Yes, just use shlight to mount the share. It works just fine.

    can these streamed videos be accessed via front row? or is there another interface i would have to use when connecting to my fileserver in the network?

    I'm so hating Apple right now. After all the iPhone crap over the past months, I was so happy to read that putting the Perian plugin on the AppleTV was possible.

    Now, I read that the goddamn syncing won't work 'cause iTunes will only stream quicktime files! So I'm hoping this 'mount a drive' thing will work 'cause I only got the 40gig Apple TV and really haven't the energy to open the damn thing and change the drive.
