Stream can only work when files can be added to iTunes. Any format iTunes cannot support like AVI, MKV, WMV, DivX, XviD, MPEG, and FLV video format, Airplay will not steam. To stream video in MKV,AVI,WMV,DivX,MPEG from PC to Apple TV or from Mac to Apple TV, you will need to convert your files to the file formats supported by iTunes.

if you have a macbook you can view the screen of your mac on the tv by finding the airplay activation in the menu bar at the top right of your screen. only if you have the latest updates on both the apple tv and your mac.

I had this same question my self, and found an easy answer. if you have an Ipad then you can mirror your screen from the Ipad to AppleTV And/OR Airserver. to get you PC Desktop onto AppleTV you would use Splashtop Personal or Splashtop Xdisplay(secondary screen support with this) Or any Remote Desktop Protocol(RDP) app to connect to PC.
Yes It does require theIpad to act as a proxy of sorts, but in an educational enviroment you might have this allready. but it hasthe benifits of being able to control a PC using keyboard/mouse with splashtop, or ipad touch controls and would be great for Board Meetings or classroom presentations.

Another option is Media Center Safari extension:
This works well for streaming media to Apple TV without having to use iTunes.

The solution that I found is AirParrot.
I haven't tried that and I am going to buy that as soon as I upgrade to new Apple TV. I am waiting for Apple TV 3.
You can check their website and judge by yourself if it's good or not.
if anybody use that, please let me know how it works.
