For a cinephile, people has many ways to enjoy movies: watch movies in the theater/on the TV, stream Blu-ray/DVD and download movies from torrent site. Many people like to stream the downloaded torrent movies on Apple TV 4/3/2/1 via iTunes then they don’t need to add the movie to the playlist one by one. However, not all torrent movies can be put into iTunes for Apple TV freely;
“I download torrents via Kickass Torrents and / or Lime Torrents and download the files with uTorrent. I want to watch via my AppleTV from iTunes to my living room television set but some movies can’t be put in, why?”
I think even though you don’t have an Apple product, you also know Apple product has its own ecosystem, which prevents iTunes store source from outflowing into other OS system devices and also keep strict requirement on the inpouring source. For videos, if you want to add external content to iTunes for Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, you should make sure your video is in the right format for iTunes: .m4v .mp4 .mov.
So if you can’t add torrent movies to iTunes, the main causes of failure probably is the format incompatibility. In the case, you need a video coverter to transcode the format to iTunes and Apple TV friendly ones.
