Even though Apple TV allows you to stream online YouTube videos directly on your TV, what's about downloading and watching YouTube videos with Apple TV? Many of you may have the habit of downloading YouTube videos when coming across great content. However, when playing the downloaded videos through Apple TV, the video format will be a problem. Under such a circumstance, a whole-packaged program that can download and convert videos to compatible formats will be your preference. Wondershare AllMyTube is such a program. If you have downloaded YouTube videos, you can use Video Converter Ultimate to convert the videos to compatible formats.
Note: Apple TV has different versions and only the first version has a hard drive for storing videos. For the later versions, Apple TV is only used to stream online videos, but it can connect with your iDevices or Mac computer through Airplay and play the videos on your devices. So when you are converting videos, check the version of your Apple TV to determine the format or it's better to select a format that fit both Apple TV and your devices, such as MOV. We will take MOV as an example.
