This is clever. I guess I forgot QuickTime can do this since QT has problems sometimes playing some .avi files. Great idea though. One thing that is aggravating, thinking back to the days when I was still on windows, if you had a .wmv file you new it was windows, or music .wma. And if mac based .aac or .avi. Why Apple does not offer support in iTunes for its own file types is baffling!?! Obviously .mp4 is more of a cross platform standard. But, I believe it would have made sense to support .avi files in iTunes. I love my Apple TV, I stream my movies. But, it takes awhile to convert to .mp4 so that I can have this convenience. Mountain Lion come with full AirPlay capabilities and will makes this easier. I'm using Airparrot now and it works great, using AVS media player to play .avi or even .mkv files. Anywway, thanks for info!
