Can you watch any video, even those that play through a program such as VLC, or not purchase through iTunes using Apple TV?

    Yes - but only if you are using a Mac that supports AirPlay. Here is the up to date list as of March, 2014.

    iMac (Mid 2011 or newer)
    Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer)
    MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer)
    MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer)
    Mac Pro (Late 2013)

    You can 'extend' or 'mirror' your computer screen to your Apple TV. So, you can load up VLC (or any other player that works on your Mac) and watch your content on your Apple TV. Search Apple's website for "About AirPlay Mirroring in OS X" for more information.
