  • Combo pack which includes Perian, WMV and AC3 components. CAUTION: Web page disses Perian.

Move /System/Library/Quicktime/QuicktimeMPEG2.component to the AppleTV and restart. Tested playing a VOB file from a DVD. Video was extremely choppy but I believe that was because the file was being played from a AFP share mounted across my crappy wireless network.
