The 3rd generation Apple TV wirelessly streams everything you download from the iTunes Store to your home entertainment system, so that you can enjoy up to 1080p movies on HDTV. And if you have surround sound system, you can even setup Apple TV to pass-through Dolby Digital audio. If there’s anything less than satisfactory, it must be the picky file types that iTunes supported. As far as we can see, iTunes store supports 3 video formats only, i.e. .mp4, .mov, and .m4v, which mean HD videos in MKV, AVI, WMV, MTS format can’t be added to iTunes movie library for playing to Apple TV 3.

Wanna stream MKV/AVI/MTS/M2TS videos to Apple TV 3? Get Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac (or Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate for Windows), which enables Apple TV 3 to handle all kinds HD videos by transcoding AVI/MKV/WMV/MPG/Xvid/TS videos to iTunes supported .m4v video. When converting HD videos to Apple TV streaming media format, the app exports Apple TV optimized video up to 1080p Full HD and turns multi-channel HD audio(DTS, TrueHD, PCM) into Dolby Digital 5.1. The iMedia Converter also lets you rip DVDs and Blu-ray Discs for streaming to Apple TV 3.

How to convert HD video to Apple TV 3 streaming media format:

Step 1. Run iMedia Converter on Mac, drag and drop HD videos to the software. It supports HD contents from MKV, AVI, WMV, TS, MTS, M2TS, TiVo, ISO, Blu-ray and DVD. To load Blu-ray/DVD movie from disc, press "Load Disc" icon.

Step 2. Press on the "Format" bar, choose "Apple TV>> Apple TV 3 Dolby Digital Pass-through (*.m4v)". If you are staying with the 2nd gen black Apple TV, the "Apple TV 2 Dolby Digital Pass-through (*.m4v)" preset works best for you.

The presets export Apple TV optimized HD video with 2 audio tracks- both Dolby Digital 5.1 and AAC stereo audio will be retained, so that Apple TV could pass-through Dolby Digital to A/V receiver for reproduction of surround sound, and export AAC stereo when going without surround sound system.

Step 3. Press "Convert" to get iMedia Converter to start converting HD WMV/AVI/MKV to Apple TV 3 optimized 1080p video. Wait till conversion completes. To improve speed, you are suggested to run the Blu-ray Ripper on a faster computer.
