Apple TV

Matt has backed up all his family home movie DVDs on his network, but they're not playable because they were backed up as disc images or VOB files. What can he do? Leo says what Matt needs to do is create an ISO for them. There's software that does it. Leo recommends getting media server software like KODI. Then he can use the AppleTV that can see it and play it.

The chatroom recommends using Infuse with the Apple TV, but a third or fourth gen Apple TV can use Kodi natively. Matt should check out this article from Macworld.co.uk on how to do it.

VLC is also a good option for server software. Plex may also be able to it.
