Itunes cannot find my apple tv

I installed apple tv in my apartment. It can see the internet through wifi since I can watch youtube videos using the airport right next to it. But itunes on my windows computer in another room cannot find it. The computer and others in my apartment also connect to the internet perfectly using the ethernet. What could be wrong?

    I moved my apple tv into the room with the computer and plugged in to the same ethernet and it worked! Is there some reason the airport doesn't work the apple tv? They are both from Apple!

  • Anonymous Jun 30, 2008

    I also frequently have the problem that my laptop cannot see the Apple TV and they are in the same room.  I exited and restarted iTunes and that did not make a difference. And I shutdown and restarted and still no Apple TV.  Is it shy?

How to watch iTunes movies on LG smart TV without Apple TV?


Lg won't talk to your Mac, what I do is take a pc formatted USB stick and copy the movie to it and then plug it into a USB port on the tv. If the file is bigger than 4 gb you will need to write it to an ntfs formatted drive, the Mac doesn't speak that natively but there are free file systems for the Mac that do out on the internet.

Boss touch screen... how do u get the stereo to play ipod videos... the ipod is hooked up but only reads the songs


Is it an ipod video you have ?

The iPod Touch is a multimedia player made by Apple, with a 3.5-inch touch-sensitive display and a built-in speaker, which makes it suitable for watching videos on the go. The device connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi, allowing you to download videos from Apple's iTunes Store, and stream videos from video-sharing websites like YouTube or movies from sites like Amazon or Netflix. You can also shoot videos with the iPod Touch's two built-in cameras.

Tap the Photos app icon on the Home screen to watch a video you shot with your iPod Touch's camera. Tap "Camera Roll." Thumbnail images of pictures and videos you shot appear on the screen. Video thumbnails have a video camera icon. Tap the thumbnail of a video to open it, then press the "Play" button to start playing it. Press the "Home" button to return to the device's home screen when you're finished watching a video. Launch the YouTube app from the Home screen to watch YouTube videos. Tap "Featured" to see a list of videos being promoted by YouTube, or tap "Most Viewed" to see a list of popular videos. Tap "Search," then type a search term, and then tap "Search" to look for videos. Tap the thumbnail of a video to start playing it. Touch the Videos app icon on the home screen to watch videos you downloaded from Apple's iTunes Store. A list of videos appears. Tap the thumbnail of a video to start playing it. Hope this helps.

Can not watch videos from youtube on my ipad2


That's because YouTube uses a software called 'Adobe Flash' for displaying Videos. iPad and all other iOS devices don't support Adobe Flash. So you won't be able to watch YouTube videos on iPad.
However, YouTube has launched a test version of their site in HTML5. Head over to youtube.com/html5Then "join the HTML5 trial". You should now be able to watch videos.

How to download videos


1Turn on your computer and make sure you are connected to the Internet. High-speed Internet connections are favorable for downloading movies, which are often large files that can take a long time to download. Open a browser window--you can use Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome or any other browser of your choice.

2.Navigate to web service, which will allow you to download movies that can be watched on your laptop. You can go to Apple.com to download iTunes, which will allow you to register for an account and download movies at a particular price. You can also use Netflix.com to download or stream movies to your laptop.

3.Choose the movie that you would like to watch and, in iTunes or Netflix.com, purchase the film. Be aware that these online services do not have every movie that has ever been made, and most likely will not have obscure titles. Once you have chosen the movie that you wish to download, complete the payment process to purchase the film. Movies can be downloaded for free on various websites, however, this is illegal and can result in expensive legal suits.

4.Wait for your movie to download. Download times will vary depending on the speed of your Internet connection. Once the download has completed, you can open the movie file and watch it on your laptop.

Cannot watch ipod video on tv even using the correct apple cable


I solved my problem with this issue. It wasn't the radio in my case. Don't know if this will help anyone else but I had to turn "ON" the TV output on my ipod. This is done by going to Videos - Settings - TV OUT. Then click center button to turn it to "ON".
