My us usual workflow is to rip DVDs a season at a time and host then on my Mac mini. I then watch these .dvdmedia files on 2 of my home theater areas by just double clicking on the networked file. Works great. I recently put a tv in my kitchen a bought an ATV2 for it as another mini would be overkill for that. What I would like to do is play the .dvdmedia files in a similar way. I have been using Handbrake to encode individual episodes, then name them, them dump them into iTunes, and finally delete them off the server later. This is pretty tedious. Boxee app can live encode and stream from a server to an iPad, although nit .dvdmedia files. I was wondering if a similar solution exists for ATV2 yet.
