According to 1 (http://www.apple.com/appletv/specs.html) and 2 (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1469186), it does not.
But you can convert the MPEG-2 files with MPEG Streamclip (www.squared5.com) to an MPEG-4 encoded file, but you may need the QT MPEG-2 Component, which costs 20$ I think, unless you have Final Cut Studio.
