I used to have no problem streaming movies from a networked drive to my Apple TV. Now, they either don’t show up at all, or they hang after a few frames. Anyone know why?
I’m running ATV 3.02, and ATVFlash 4.02, the movies are on an external Firewire drive attached to my Mac, and I’ve always aliased them through iTunes – that is, I do a drag-and-drop of the movie file into the iTunes movie screen, where it creates an effective alias of the film. In the past, this worked fine. I’d click on the film’s icon in ATV, there’d be a pause as the movie loaded (with the blue bar across the bottom getting filled) and films pretty much ran without pause (maybe a hiccup or two) through to the end. Now, I might get a peek at the blue bar, but the screen pretty quickly goes dark, and I rarely see a film.
All else seems to be okay. I know the network is working – movie trailers, Podcasts, and the like stream immediately and without problem. Music generally streams okay. But longer files like films or even video podcasts that are stored on and streamed from my networked drive – no go. Any ideas what I can do?
