How to Convert DVD to Apple TV Videos?
Apple TV is a digital media receiver developed and sold by Apple. It is a small form factor network appliance designed to play IPTV digital content originating from the iTunes Store, Netflix, YouTube, Flickr, MobileMe, MLB.tv, NBA League Pass or any Mac OS X or Windows computer running iTunes onto an enhanced-definition or high-definition widescreen television. Apple TV allows consumers to use an HDTV set to view photos, play music and watch video that originates from limited Internet services or a local network. Apple TV can sync or stream photos, music and videos from a computer running iTunes. A user can connect a computer on a local network to maintain a central home media library of ripped CD, DVD or HD content.
