    Can you stream a large movie that is over 4 gb with 64 bit turned on to atv take 2? I have seen conflicting answers on this subject. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am encoding my movies for a future atv purchase.

    There is an option in HandBreak to create a 64 bit file (basically a file that is over 4gigs along with some other settings). This is supposed to play on AppleTV (stream and sync) according to the HandBreak developers. Towards the end of the thread on HandBreak and 5.1 audio there is a discussion about this.

    Only way to find out is by trying.
