Is there a way to stream Itunes video to my TV besides AppleTV or the new iTV?

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
I've got like 300gb of movies and tv shows that I've converted to MP4 video and is now part of my Itunes library. I have various electronic devices such as a Roku to stream Netflix, 2 Series 2 Tivo's, and a Samsung BD-P3600 Blue Ray Player which also can stream Netflix.

I have a MacBook Pro and would like stream video from it...Is there anything I can do?

    Just buy an HDMI cable that has a DVI or mini display port (which ever your Mac has) and connect them. Then buy an Apple remote or use your iPhone and VNC software to control your mac

    You didn't mention one, but if you have an Xbox 360, you can use an application called Connect 360 on your Mac. The xBox will think it's a Windows PC, and can stream non-DRM video and audio. The Xbox interface is pretty clunky for this, but it works OK.

    For Audio, I find the Airport Express to be almost perfect. I'm personally hoping the new AppleTV is more like it...

    Elgato's EyeConnect is a good media server application for the Mac.

    PS3 Media Server can serve to PS3 or XBox360 and is free. Its transcoding capabilities are pretty good too.
