    Ok, so i am new to all this itunes stuff. Usually i download a movie, leave it somewhere on my desktop and stream it to my iphone with "Air Playit" - but how the hell do it do this with bought or rented movies from iTunes?

    Any advice?

    You have an Apple TV?

    You just use the "Home Sharing" feature in iTunes and make sure its enable on your Apple TV. Your movies should be accessible from that without going via your phone.

    Make sure your media is organized in iTunes.

    Sadly i dont. I only have an iphone and a macbook. If i watch my own .avi or .mp4 movies, i just connect my iphone to the TV and stream all content via "Air Playit". Can i do that with itunes movies too?

    mmmm your iPhone should be able to read any video thats in iTunes. I've never heard of "Air Playit". I thought you made an "Airplay" typo. Sorry about that.

    Hopefully someone else can help.
