Well the Apple bug has really got me now, started with a 30GB iPod, got rid of the PC. Now I have a Apple TV on it's way to me. Just been looking at the Awkward TV site, has anyone here followed items on there to get Mac OS and DIVX/XVID working on their ATV? Any pointers or any other solutions?


Cheers

Tim.

Also is it worth adding DIVX/XVID (Perian) or do Apple push out updates to block such tweaks?

I have just been using Handbrake and iSquint to convert all my stuff to H.264, just so I know it will always play.

Never bought Quicktime Pro, since there are excellent free tools available.

While I do use QT Pro, I use FFmepgX to convert my .avi's to something ATV/iTunes compatible. Neither of them is free. QT Pro does an excellent job at converting editing but, it's a bit slow. FFmpegX is not much faster but, a whole lot more versatile.

My 2 cents...

I use Handbrake to rip DVD or image files to MP4, so I can view them on my Apple TV. I have also purchased Visual Hub to convert AVI or other types of video files to MP4.
