After my wife got a laptop for her birthday the G5 sat around unused for quite some time. After we bought the Apple TV I decided to set it up as a media server. In this case, I’ve started converting DVDs to an Apple TV 2 compatible format and dumping them into the iTunes library of the G5, which I’ve setup again. So far I’ve only converted around 20 DVDs, but that number is slowly increasing.
On several occasions we’ve streamed these movies to the Apple TV, which has worked great. At the moment, I’m focusing on converting the movies that we like to watch from time to time.
It’s been a long time since I posted something in the “Multi-Media Server (MMS)” category.
