I'm trying to play videos from my Mac to my Apple TV and am getting the error "cannot proceed. vlc not found". I've tried running older versions of the software and updating VLC both to no avail. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Many apps that rely on VLC require it to be location in the Applications folder.

If you've moved VLC or renamed it, try putting it back.
