Alfred workflow to control the apple-tv-converter gem. Currently using apple-tv-converter v0.3.3.

Main features

  • Convert movies to MP4 format playable on Apple TV (does not allow multiple conversions in parallel)
  • Can convert multiple files and/or folders in one batch
  • Can optionally fetch movie metadata from IMDB (check apple-tv-converter's documentation on how to do this)


  • Requires rvm to be installed (apple-tv-converter requires ruby v1.9 and the system ruby is v1.8, will try to make it work in v1.8 later)
  • Requires ffmpeg to be installed for the conversion process (recommended installation via Homebrew)

Everything else that's necessary should already be bundled in the workflow (hence the ~11Mb).



First, select one or more files or folders either in Finder or Path Finder, and then use the atc keyword on Alfred 2 to start the conversion

Status report

Use the keyword atc status to get a status report for the conversion in a Large Type message

Cancel conversion

Use the keyword atc cancel to cancel the conversion. Note: no cleanup is made, and a partly converted file will be left on the directory
