I watch a lot of streaming video from overseas on my TV via my MacBook Pro.
Here's the signal chain:

Streaming video playing fullscreen on my MacBook Pro -> Airplay -> AppleTV -> TV Set (via HDMI from AppleTV)

If I want to play a video file from my MacBook Pro to the TV w/o using iTunes b/c it's a PITA, I use an Mac App
called "Beamer" ( is avail. for $20 via the Mac App store.

Beamer allows you to stream any video file from your MAc laptop/desktop to you AppleTV & TV without any playback issues.
Any video format (AVI, MKV, MOV, MP4, WMV, FLV), supports 5.1 surround sound, automatically detects embedded subtitles and associated subtitle files, etc...
