    If you are capable of using Handbrake or the like to get your movies off your DVDs this is fairly simple. On my iMac I stream to my Apple TV in a few ways. If the program I am using to view has Airplay it just streams to the Apple TV. If the program does not (or if you view something from the web, say) you can get a program called AirParrot very cheaply and that will stream your iMac screen (or PC) to the Apple TV. I use it for watching PBS shows mostly. By the way, Apple today announced a new 1080p Apple TV at $99 so you can bet I will upgrade!

    I use an app called Air Media Center to view my videos on my iPad or iPhone. I can send the videos to my 3rd generation Apple TV directly from my iPad or iPhone as seen below:

    There is a desktop program that runs on my PC from air media center that you use to setup the folders you want to view on the iPad. It has to be on the pc hard drive on a network drive. The nice thing about this is that it will play any video format. No need to have iTunes open to use this.
