    Default AVI/DiVX With Windows

    Hey guys,

    I can't seem to get a definitive answer about this elsewhere, so I'm hoping that someone here can answer this one. It looks like those with a Mac can use Plex to stream movies to their ATV2 in various formats, but for those of us who only have a Windows machine how can this be accomplished?

    Thanks for any help,
    John

    Look at http://ericasadun.com/ftp/AirPlay/ - this is the best solution so far, it now includes experimental transcoding support

    Thanks for the quick reply - that software is also for the Mac only. I was asking about a Windows solution, if one exists?

    I've been looking at jailbreaking the ATV2, but am also having trouble with doing so in Windows. From what I can tell, redsn0w is the only app to jailbreak in Windows, but doesn't recognize the .ipsw file.

    Any suggestions?

    Answering my own question - digging around I finally found sn0wbreeze 2.1 will jailbreak ATV2 for iOS 4.1.

    Jailbreaking your ATV2 won't really help it to play AVI/DivX. To play such files on an ATV2, they have to be either transcoded to MP4 or run through AVIDemux Avidemux.org and saved in a MP4 container with recoded audio.

    There are plenty of windows programs that can transcode video, AVIDemux is cross platform (and I use it a lot to preserve video quality that is lost when transcoding)

    Hey jh756 - I'm also looking to find a PC solution for Jailbreaking the ATV2 and streaming avi's. I have only seen Plex and Airstream for Mac so far. It looks like non-Mac users are SOL at the moment until a developer comes along and makes something PC compatible. Let me know if you find anything in the future and I'll be sure to do the same.

    anu815 - I'll certainly post to this thread when I find a working solution.

    I'm currently stuck on the jailbreak process - I upgraded to iOS 4.2.1 before I began looking into jailbreaking, and didn't back up the SHSH blobs from 4.1. Unfortunately sn0wbreeze doesn't support 4.2.1, so I may be stuck until they either begin supporting the new version, or I find a workaround/solution for the SHSH problem.

    There is no workaround for the SHSH problem. You are limited to a tethered jailbreak on 4.2.1
