    Just wondering if there's a way to watch the keynote on my apple tv. I tried adding the reference movie to iTunes but AppleTV didn't see it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't have and AppleTV, but at least iPods are picky about their video file formats. If you're trying to use the .mov file, you might have to convert it to a .m4v file using iSquint of something. I'm actually surprised Apple doesn't have the Keynote available though iTunes(the AppleTV and iPod ready).

    The problem is that Apple's movie is just a stream, so there's no content to convert to anything. I tried to export from quicktime, but it just showed up as a hour and 20 minutes of white nothing. I also tried to import it into iMovie to export back out, but that didn't work either. Any other suggestions would be welcome.

    I would wait until the end of the week. Apple, of recent, has been posting keynotes such as MacWorld and D in an Apple TV format (in the form of a podcast) several days after the event.

    What in the world is taking Apple so long to put this out for :apple:TV users?!? You would think they'd be jumping all over this medium which at the same time promotes their new device. And gives us :apple:TV owners another reason to use our new toys.

    I'm beginning to doubt apple will release this in a downloadable/apple tv viewable format. Any suggestions for getting a non-streaming version of the WWDC keynote that AppleTV can view? Thanks for the help.

    Ah, but you can't....not qt streams....

    Try downloading a torrent.

    Then convert to mp4/h.264 for AppleTV.
