    I am somewhat new to using iCloud, and was wondering if someone can tell me: is there any way to stream videos from an iCloud drive via an AppleTV 4?

    Thanks in advance,

    It depends. If they are home movies, you can export them to iMovie Theater and watch via the Apple TV app.

    Thanks for the responses. I was just thinking that as my Bravia TV runs AndroidTV as the OS, maybe there is a Playstore app that would let me stream from GoogleDrive....I'll look into that.

    I have installed and tried out some of the media playback apps on mine (with other objective, than getting video from Google Drive).
    But, they all have again, a severe limitation (for my taste). At least on Sony's AndroidTV, no 3rd party app I've tried (Plex, Kodi, VLC) is able to play back multichannel audio. Only 2.0 stereo.
