What movie formats does iTunes play?
you might find [this|http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/articles/comments/the-complete-guide-to-ipod-v ideo-formats-and-display-resolutions> article helpful.
I have a collection of short home movies ... in avi format.
i believe if you install Perian, QuickTime will be able to export .avi files to an iTunes/Apple TV friendly format.
alternatively, you could use HandBrake to convert those files. the app comes with pre-sets for e.g. Apple TV and iPod.
I'm interested in buying the Apple TV so I can stream home movies from iTunes to my TV upstairs.
Will it play almost any format
go [here|http://www.apple.com/appletv/specs.html] for information on video formats Apple TV supports. not all that plays in iTunes will play on Apple TV.
