First thing to check is the airplay item (top of screen menu bar), open preferences and make sure it is not set to default to AppleTV.

Does the airplay symbol appear in the iTunes toolbar? If so click on it. The drop down menu should give you the option to select computer or ATV. Select computer if you do not want it to Airplay.

It does, and it sucks that I always have to manually select computer. Before if I selected computer, the next video would play. But now when video is over and I select the next one, it gets airplayed

I did a bit of a search and came up with this:

"In iTunes 11, the AirPlay icon has been moved to the top left of the iTunes window, next to the volume slider. Check the Computer as default for both the Single & Multiple settings."

Again, I believe the key is to make sure BOTH the Single and Multiple settings have the same default set with the check mark next to it.

It is from this thread on the Apple Discussion forums

It was like that and was still happening. What I did to solve it was to switch to my neighbors wifi then back to mine. And now it's working perfectly
