Playing home movies on your TV using an Apple TV
If you have an AppleÂ TV, you can watch many videos in your iTunes library on your TV.Â
Video in your iTunes library must be compatible with AppleÂ TV.Â If you drag a video file from the Finder to the iTunes window and the video doesn’t appear in iTunes, it isn’t compatible. In some cases, you can save video files in a different format so that they work with iTunes.
Any video that plays on an iPod is compatible with AppleÂ TV.
Here are ways to save a version of a video to work with iTunes and AppleÂ TV:
Try selecting the movie in iTunes and then choosing AdvancedÂ > â€œCreate AppleÂ TV Video.â€
If you have QuickTime Pro, open your movie in QuickTime Player and then choose File > ExportÂ > â€œMovie to Apple TV.â€ For more information, see QuickTimeÂ PlayerÂ Help.
For more information, see the AppleÂ TV user’s guide that came at the AppleÂ TV Support website.
