Some one asked me which format is the best one for playback on Apple TV via iTunes,I searched and confirmed that MPEG-4 is the best one,especially with h.264.
What is Apple TV?More details can be refer to here: http://www.apple.com/appletv/
In short,theApple TV is a simple, compact — 1.1 inches tall, 7.7 inches wide, and 7.7 inches deep — “set top box” that makes it possible to wirelessly “stream” iTunes content — “music, audiobooks, videos, TV shows, and movies” — from as many as five Macs or PCs to an enhanced-definition or high-definition TV (and as of January 15, 2008, rent movies directly). It officially works with EDTV or HDTV sets with HDMI or component video and audio ports, but it also works with a limited number of SDTV sets.
With such a good multimedia player, it would be a shame if do not make use of it fully,for example, watching your favorite DVD movies or Blu-ray movies with it.
