    Im trying to transfer movies from my MAC laptop to a thumb drive to watch them on my Google tv. I was able to change the movie format from itunes to quicktime on the thumb drive. When I plug in the thumb drive into the tv it recognizes the thumb drive and movie info but when played no audio or video. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advanced!

    Google TV doesn't currently support the Quicktime format.

    The Quicktime container format is close enough to MP4 that you can rename the .qt extension to .mov or .mp4 which are compatible with Google TV. As long as the encapsulated video and audio streams inside are using are compatible with the H264/AVC video and AAC audio codecs then you should be able to play them. If they're not; however, then you can use Format Factory to convert them to the MP4/H264/AAC format necessary to be played on your Google TV device provided they don't have any DRM assigned.

    It would be better if you just install a DLNA server like Twonky onto your laptop. This will allow you can stream the compatible movies over your local network.

    Sweet has anyone done this?

    Seems like there are a ton of DLNA servers for Mac out there; I wonder which ones work well enough to sit in the background and automatically transcode on the fly?

    Practically everyone with a Google TV has done.

    I personally recommend using TwonkyServer and setting the Media Receiver to "Android" for the Google TV's mac address.

    We're referring to iTunes media; have a look at Connect 360 and how they elegantly deal with sharing media with an xbox.

    TVmobili is Free DLNA Media Server For Mac, Windows, and Linux. It is fully integrated with iTunes. Your iTunes catalogue is made instantly available as soon as you install TVMOBiLi onto your computer.
