Hi This is what I do now: 1. Convert an AVI file and subtitles files into an ffmpeg DVD format file (mpg). 2. Use Roxio Toast to burn this file onto the DVD. 3. Play DVD in DVD player to watch on home theater system. (Approximate time for everything: 90 minutes--and if everything goes ok) This is what I would like to do: 1. Watch the AVI file with subtitles on VLC Player on my computer and have it beamed to my LCD automatically. (Approximate time: 0 minutes) Now, for my scenario 2, could I use Apple TV to beam stuff on to the LCD TV in my living room? (Using Airport Extreme or whatever)? Basically, I want to have *nothing* to do with iTunes at any stage in the process. Is this possible with Apple TV? Thanks!
