Yes, you can also stream other iTunes content too including video. If you have photos you want to view on the ATV, you can also display them too albeit not from iTunes.I just wanted to check...does streaming your personal TV/movie library from iTunes work the same as on AppleTV 3?
I think this is fully possible if Apple changed priorities to people who have a massive iTunes library of non-iTunes Music Store purchases. When I add new content to iTunes, it should make an XML file in my library folder of that new line item, its location and all of the tags I've added. If I didn't put who directed the film, it's skipped but if I did, that's added to the XML file. When AppleTV fires up, iMac makes that file available via Home Sharing and Siri now has access to it. I'm sure Apple wants to know what non-purchased content I have for their data-mining (even if not nefarious, I'm guessing they do store a lot of user behavior / data) and I get the benefit of seeing Arnold movies on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and my own iTunes library.I really want to be able to use Siri to search for local content. The only hiccup I can see is that on the old ATV, when you select computers it will typically first load the list of content on your computer. So while it should be possible to use Siri to search for content after ATV has loaded the library list, it might not ever be able to do so from the main home screen.
You know what is annoying , all these reviews i see and half the video is them opening the stupid box and showing the remote for 2 minutes yet never showing things people want to see like this. Why do i care about someone taking the Apple tv from a boxCan someone please post of a pic of the UI for home sharing? I want to know if the movies are still displayed as a list or did they finally update and give it a new view?
I've literally watched almost every youtube video trying to find someone that shows the home sharing UI.You know what is annoying , all these reviews i see and half the video is them opening the stupid box and showing the remote for 2 minutes yet never showing things people want to see like this.
