Erica Sadun has announced an application AirFlick for Mac OS X, which let you enjoy internet video streaming on Apple TV 2G, just like as iTunes do.If you are using Mac OS then you can play any media file on Apple TV 2G, no matter you take that file from internet or you pick already saved file from your Mac OS.

Here is the detailed description of Erica Sadun about AirFlick:

AirFlick offers the potential of real-time transcoding of otherwise unsupported file types into Apple TV-compatible data. It also allows you to open videos located on the Internet by pasting a URL and clicking the play button. I was able to watch a number of Internet Archive ( mp4 videos on a big screen TV by browsing that website, selecting URLs, and opening them with AirFlick.

AirFlick works by transforming your Mac into a web browser, the same way AirPlay works on your iPhone or other iOS device. For Mac-based files, AirFlick tells your Apple TV to connect to a local URL and serves the data that the Apple TV plays back. So long as those files are in a supported format such as mp4, m4v, mp3, etc, the Apple TV can read and display the file data.

The 0.01 release of AirFlick is quite alpha — so expect a few bugs along the way. If your Apple TV reports errors, you can always use your menu button (as I show in the video) to try connecting again.

Here’s the video.
