View Full Version : Apple TV? Support file-sharing?

Apr 1, 2007, 04:42 PM
Hey, im new to this site and Im interested in purchasing an Apple TV. I read and atched many reviews from Cnet, PC World, and others. All said that Apple TV supports everything that is on itunes. I was wondering if this includes MP4 movie files and music files from file sharing sites...such as Limewire.. this would make a huge impact on wether or not i should purchase the Apple TV, mainly because most of my movies that are on my ipod come from Limewire since the itune store doesnt have alot of movies. Thanks.:)

*For the most part*, if you can load and play it in iTunes, it'll play on the AppleTV. There are some exceptions, but nothing specific.

I've loaded in plenty of my own MP4 rips, and plain MP3s.

Of course, if you hack it and load Perian, it'll play anything.

A good rule would be, if it work on the iPod(5G/5.5G) then it will work on the AppleTV...show ever there are things that don't hold true (like games for example).

Also I'll take the time to remind you Limewire=evil, unless you are downloading movies, I doubt it.
