You can rip the DVD into a video file with the real Handbrake program. Make sure you choose a preset that is compatible with an iPod or iTunes. The .mp4 video format is compatible.

That's probably the only way you're going to get one of your DVDs onto your Apple TV., unless you want to pay more money and buy the movie on the iTunes store.

No. it's impossible. The DVD player is the essence of life. Once it breaks, then nothing works. Save yourself the pain and kill your self right NOW.

does apple TV have a DVD drive?
DVD Ripper can directly rip DVD (including protected DVD with CSS) for playback on iPod, iPhone, Zune, iPod, Apple TV, PSP, Smart Phone, etc.
