I have the same problem. I notice what this problem only happens after 
Perian through NitoTV.

@ zerodfault,chewawasrdabest1


I really don't want to have to re-install the patchstick because it took some 
of the
most boring eight hours of my life to import all the metadata with saphire.

also, thank you to the creators of this project who made all this possible (i 
several holidays trying to get it working the manual way). i hope that one of 
years, i'll contribute something back that others will find useful.

I found a solution posted on the atvflash forum. 

What happened is the Apple codec was moved into a 'Disabled' folder. Getting it 
isn't the easiest thing, but it can be done by connecting to the AppleTV via SSH
through Terminal. ... SSH_Access

Once connected, copy/paste the following command into Terminal and hit enter. 
'frontrow' when prompted for a password.

sudo mv /System/Library/Quicktime/Disabled/QuickTimeH264.component

Restart the AppleTV and you'll be back to normal.
I tried it and it worked :D
