    Dear All,

    can anyone tell me what is better to play avi files on the apple TV? Boxee or XBMC? I live in Europe (Netherlands), so the social stuff from Boxee is not that interesting.. It's mainly about playing AVI's without having to convert them to MP4.

    Thanks and best rgds,

    Peter

    I use Perian and ATVFiles - plays Xvid/DiVX video great. Can't stand Boxee (or XBMC), sorry.

    Or Perian and Sapphire, essentially the same.
