    I just bought a HDTV (Panasonic TH-L55ET5C) and it's so fantastic to watch TV shows on it. So I wanna stream the video and music collections stored on my MacBook Pro to the HDTV with Apple TV and then I can watch them with my family members. Is there any simple solution? Thanks!

    An AppleTV will directly play anything that is your iTunes library on computer... No need to stream from an iDevice.

    Hi thanks, I also found that an app called 5KPlayer could help me finished the task. I would have a try as well.

    Expect some lag and buffered playback on larger HD files...I returned my Apple TV because of this years ago, it simply did not function as a media streamer, in this fashion, very well. The Western Digital TV Live system does a lot better for these kinds of things, but it's also more expensive than the Apple TV.

    I find that on my Apple TV if I AirPlay video from my iPhone I get a reasonable experience. I used to do this a lot but then iOS8 hit and AirPlay became quite painful.

    Fortunately, upgrading to 8.2 has really improved things again. I AirPlay from my iPhone to my Apple TV 3 for some streaming apps that aren't natively supported on the Apple TV itself. It works fine but does tie up your iPhone, and I tend to flick through social media etc when I watch TV so not an ideal situation

    However, I do love AIrPlay and just got it working in my car too after my Bluetooth broke lol
