I just bought and installed the 2TB mybooklive NAS drive. I would like to use it to stream music to my Apple TV,
From what I understand I can’t do it directly from the drive to the Apple TV even though the drive has an “Itunes server.” Is this correct?
Even if it is so, I would still like to stream it from the drive through itunes on my PC to my Apple TV - essentially using the WDlive drive as my music storage device instead of an external usb hdd attached to the PC.
Itunes on my PC shows the music folders on the wdlive under “shared” and I can access it in full on my PC. But it doesn’t show up on my Apple TV. I would have thought that it would be listed under the library of this particular computer on my Apple TV menu.
Does anyone know how to get it to work with Apple TV? The only alternative I can think of would be import the music library into the itunes library of the computer - i.e. treat it as an attached hard drive rather than a network share.
