Apple TV is considered to be one of Apple Inc's most offbeat gadgets. Its third generation Apple TV 3 has got more stunning features, making it an excellent choice to enjoy videos, movies or TV shows, etc. It's no secret that we can get almost any videos we want on YouTube, most of which are in .flv format. Given that Apple TV (Apple TV 3 included) has got poor format compatibility (unluckily FLV is not accepted), one could be forgiven for not knowing how to play YouTube FLV video on Apple TV 3 smoothly."I just bought new Apple TV 3, and I am thinking about play the downloaded videos from YouTube on it, but I cannot get a way out." Believe it or not, we cannot transfer YouTube to Apple TV 3 for playback directly, instead, we need to convert YouTube FLV videos to Apple TV 3 acceptable format, say MP4.

Finally, we come to the last step! Click the big Start button in the lower right corner of the program, the conversion from YouTube to Apple TV 3 will start automatically. When the process finishes, use iTunes to sync the converted YouTube FLV video to Apple TV 3, and take your time to enjoy the widescreen watching.
