    Ok so this might be a stupid question but there's literally nothing on the apple tv page about this, I understand you can stream audio from your mac on iTunes but is there anyway for the ATV to play from folders outside itunes from a mac connected to the same network?

    The files can be all in different folders, but they have to be in your iTunes library.

    For example: I keep all my music in my official iTunes music folder, but all my movies and TV shows I keep on my external drive connected to my Airport Extreme, and when I add them into iTunes, they stay there.
