One way to watch videos from external drives on AppleTV
Authored by: stewzie10000 on Apr 30, '07 12:21:30PM

I tried this hint as an easier way to add movies to my iTunes library. This is a nice shortcut becayse it avoid having to go into preferences to uncheck the "keep organized" and "copy items to library" if you want to add something to your library without copying/storing it on your main drive.

The only problem I had was that the shortcut did not work if you drag the items with command-option onto the iTunes icon in the dock (it will copy the files per the preferences). It only works if you hold down command-option and drag the files onto the iTunes window (minimized or full size).

Thanks for this great hint! Very helpful to me.
