Apple TV, originally launched in September 2006, is a product manufactured and sold by Apple. This digital media receiver is a small form factor network appliance designed to play IPTV digital content originating from the iTunes Store, Netflix, YouTube, Flickr, MobileMe or any Mac OS X or Windows computer running iTunes.
If you're interested in using Encoding.com's platform to create Apple TV files from your source content, there's a number of ways to achieve that using the options listed below.
+ Use our web UI, located @ http://www.encoding.com/login, to designate an Amazon S3, Rackspace CloudFiles or FTP site to use as your watchfolder. Turn an entire folder of content into Apple TV files. All you have to do is select 'Add Task' and apply the Apple TV preset from the dropdown menu in the watchfolder UI.
+ Upload a single piece of media with our 'Add Media' feature in the web UI. Select 'Add Task' and apply an Apple TV preset to your encoding workflow from the dropdown menu. As with watchfolders, 'Add Media' can source from Amazon S3, Rackspace CloudFiles, FTP sites or your local drive / network.
+ Implement our powerful API to submit source content and create Apple TV files in a snap. Complete API documentation here
