    Got it to work. But for some reason, it often takes many attempts to get it to stream to the ATV. Sometimes the ATV complains “an error blah blah, the content cannot be streamed” and sometimes airstream stalls and nothing happens. Wonder why. Any clues ?

      In my experience files smaller than 1GB will run, but files larger than 1GB will give that error. That’s what I’ve deduced, but you could be experiencing something different. I just shrink my video sizes a bit and everything plays A-OK.

    Can’t updare the Ruby, It shows this error when I try to run “sudo apt-get install ruby2.0-dev”

    E: Unable to locate package ruby2.0
    E: Couldn’t find any package by regex ‘ruby2.0’

  3. Hi!

    Just finish to install, there is no ruby2.2-dev version so we have to stay il ruby2.1!

    I works fine but not for mkv files, do you have a solution to play directly those files?
