rip my dvd's and watch with Apple TV

This is probably a basic question but here goes. I'm thinking of getting an Apple TV for Christmas.

My goal is to:
1. Rip some of my daughter's DVD's, like Boz the Bear and Elmo, onto my MacBook Pro
2. Hook the Apple TV up to the TV in her playroom
3. Stream the DVD from the MBP onto the TV in the playroom.

Is this possible?
If so, what is the degree of difficulty?
Does my MBP need to constantly be turned on so that she can use the Apple TV remote to have access to her DVD collection stored on my MBP?

I have found some network TV apps for watching TV on my iPhone. Does the Apple TV support these apps as well...for instance, can I turn on the TV in the playroom, open the ABC Player app and start watching episodes of "The Middle"?
If not, can I start watching "The Middle" on my iPhone and have it projected on the TV in the playroom?
How many devices can "feed" the Apple TV? My iPhone, MBP and iPad?
Aluminum Macbook Pro mc372ll/a
iPhone and iPod Nano
We all have a choice, choose life and honor Him!
