I am trying to play avi movies on AppleTV. I am aware of several Apple TV hacks that allow this, but I want to use the tagging features in iTunes to organize my movies. I do not want to re-encode them into mp4. I have already moved my avi (xvid, also mkv) movies to iTunes by opening them with quicktime pro, then saving as a self contained movie which puts the file in a .mov container. This only takes 30 seconds and is not a re-encode. This allows them to be tagged and imported into iTunes. They play fine on my computer with perian, but I cannot figure out how to get them synced to play on the ATV. I want to use apple's interface and player on the apple tv rather than use boxee or browsing through a folder containing the movies. Does anybody know how I can do this? I really appreciate any tips!
