I've encountered this a few times. Restarting both my MacBook Pro and Apple TV solved the problem.

Executing "sudo killall coreaudiod" in Terminal worked great! Exactly what I was looking for! I figured you could kill a problem process without having to reboot.
I have also found that forcing the switchover to Output "AppleTV" in System Preferences > Sound by holding the Command key down while selecting AppleTV also works.
The problem manifests itself often enough for Apple to look further into it and fix either the Mac OS, the Apple TV 2, or both.

Disabling/enabling wifi did the job for me. Thanks!

my problem is usually that i cannot play quicktime videos- itunes is fine. So i fiund that if i just open up itunes, i can then manually switch my sound output to my apple TV. Hope that helped!

I do have the same issue. "sudo killall coreaudiod" worked for. Before that I use to reboot my mac all the time but that is a pain and I don't want to reboot my mac/reset my ATV all the time just to fix to this issue. It will be nice if there is a tech support from Apple can look a this?
Aparently this disscusion has been there from 2012 but response from Apple yet. Do they really care about these comments in the discussion?

The sudo killall coreaudiod command in Terminal works for me.

I'm trying to stream video from the web on the Mac and send it to the ATV.
None of this seems to work for me. Rebooted the Mac, restarted the ATV, killed and re-started WiFi. In fact, when I try the "System Preferences > Sound by holding the Command key down while selecting AppleTV" trick it will not accept it. It bounces back to "headphones" as soon as I release the button.
I haven't done the sudo killall coreaudiod command, but I'm honestly a little apprehensive about getting an unintended result.
