Stream from Imac to Non HDMI TV

Here is my situation. I have an older Plasma that the only HDMI has gone out. I have 5 ATV 2 laying around and none of them can connect to my tv with only a component input available. I am trying to figure out how to simply stream movies from my Imac to the tv. All my movies are rips in MP4 format. Will an HDMI to Component converter work in this situation since they are not encrypted? Also are there other options like streaming to a wifi enabled blu ray? Buying an Apple TV1. Any options would be helpful.

Thanks

I've looked at all of those however the cables seem to get really bad reviews. Has anyone had good success with streaming from mac to a bluray player?
