The requirements for AppleTV were clear to me that iTunes is required to play videos. Also the video formats were listed in the requirments.
You have to have iTunes running to stream the videos to your appleTV, but the iTunes library does not have to be on an internal drive. My iTunes library is on a 2TB external drive. I know others have multiple external drives making up their iTunes library but I do not know how they accomplished that.

Thanks for the info. Right now I am trying to see if I can get the ATV to see a second iTunes library I created on a separate drive. Creating multiple iTunes libraries does not seem to be a problem. Ideally, for me, I would have one iTunes library on each of the different internal and external drives that contain video I want to see.
Getting the ATV to pick and choose, and maybe show more than one at a time would be very nice. I'm working on it.
