People, Recently we were shopping for a DVD player and we wanted something that offered more, because we often watch YouTube videos -- more than we watch regular TV at this point -- and it's not easy to watch them on our TV. The process of getting a video from YouTube to the TV is laborious: Download flv, convert to mp4 using ffmpeg, burn DVD using iDVD. For a 30 minute video it can take an hour. The idea that Apple TV would allow us to bypass that and show YouTube on the TV directly was enticing. Unfortunately for some reason Apple has hobbled Apple TV in two ways: 1. It doesn't permit an external keyboard, so we can't browse YouTube easily at all. 2. It doesn't have a DVD player, so we can't play any of our numerous preexisting DVDs not anything that we get at the library for $2. Why does Apple hobble Apple TV in this way?
