    Can this be done with Handbrake? I know when you buy from amazon it has a DRM on the file. Has anyone tried this before?

    Thanks

    if you jailbreak the appletv 2 can you view other video formats otehr than the approved ones by apple? if so that might be a solution

    Would PLEX or XBMC play the DRM material? Or do you know a way on a Mac to get rid of the DRM?

    HandBrake doesn't remove DRM. However, it can make take advantage of VLC's ability to remove DRM from a DVD. But I doubt this will be of any help in removing Amazon's DRM from a downloaded file.

    This is one of the very reasons I have both the ATV2 and a Roku. The Roku has Amazon On-Demand Video and your library on Amazon is there to be played on your TV.

    Correct - unless you're running windows via Parallels or Fusion. ;)
