    If you're talking about iTunes libraries, yes, if they're shared on your home network. If you're not talking about iTunes libraries, then no, you cannot access your computer files from Apple TV UNLESS you download certain apps, like VLC, from the Apple TV App Store. With VLC, for example, you can access shared network locations on your home network and play whatever media is on them that VLC itself supports. Without such apps, the Apple TV can only access shared iTunes libraries on your home network.

  • You have to go through enter VLC, iTunes Home Sharing, or Plex.

    If you run Home Sharing from Apple, you will be able to browse and play whatever you've downloaded from iTunes...movies, music, etc.
