Will video play directly from a browser?

Hello all,

Sorry to ask such a basic question, but I couldn’t track down an answer to this on the forum.

With aTV Flash and a browser installed, will links to videos stream directly in full screen, or be downloaded to the Apple TV hard drive?

As far as I can tell, the more common use case is for people to find their content on a computer and transfer the files to the Apple TV for viewing. Is it possible to do it all in one step?

Thanks, Philip

You can enable Flash for streaming internet video. We have a guide for this at: http://wiki.atvflash.com/index.php?title=Enable_Flash

The only drawback is the Apple TV is not powerful enough to do full screen Flash video. The videos would need to be ‘windowed’.
