Apple Tv and Windows Home server

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I've got a Windows home server with all my computers and a Freecom media player connected to it. They all work perfect toghether. the problem is that I use the freecom media player to watch my vxid movies on my TV via my network. All files are hosted on the home server. This works great but the freecom player doesn't. It does not support all my movies and it's slow a hell.


I've looked accros and beyond but didn't really see a nice replacment for this. The Kiss players are to big, to crappy and to loud. So I've arrived at the Apple TV. This funky little thing looks great and I wonder a few things.


1) Is it possible to stream video's over the network ? (A absolute must)

2) Is their a way to get Xvid going without cracking it open (Or can I use a Itunes server on my WHS to stream the Xvid's)

3) Do you really need a mac in your place to get it to work ?


Thnx alot in advance to answer some questions for me !
