    I'd love to get an ATV2 for the family to watch home-shot video on our TV. I gather that ATV2 will stream movies that are in my iTunes library.

    Will it also stream projects from iMovie? Would I have to "share"/publish them to iTunes or the Media Browser first? And would the ATV see movies in the Media Browser (wherever that is)?

    Thanks for any insight. (Mac OS X 10.6.5, iMovie '08 7.1.4, iTunes 10.1.1)

    Regards,
    Brian33.

    They have to be in iTunes.

    Thanks for that. I suspected as much, but was hoping I wouldn't have to put them all into iTunes. Not a big deal, I guess.

    I believe there are hacks you can use that allow you to use Airplay from other applications, but at the moment, it's just iTunes. :/

    Videos in iPhoto show up too and iPhoto does not have to be running but iTunes still does.

    Well THAT'S good to know. All of my Flip videos get imported directly into iPhoto, so this means (for me at least) that I can view my clips on the new ATV without going through iMovie and sharing them with iTunes.

    Yes, there was a recent iTunes update that added a checkbox for videos when you go to iTunes and click on Advanced > Choose Photos to Share.

    Making it harder and harder for me to not go out and spend $99 on a new ATV.

    My 3yo one should be 'on the fritz' anytime now...no? ;)
