Am trying to get my movies so that can flick between Chapters on Apple TV. When playing a movie (mp4) it will say Chapter 1 etc but darned if can find a way to flick to a Chapter.
Anyone any ideas?
Thanks

It has taken a while to sort (had not seen these instructions before!)
With the aluminum remote:
Skip to the next or previous chapter (if no chapter markers are present, this will skip 1/20th of the video length, or 30 second intervals whichever is longer.) Press - then the forward or rewind button to skip chapters Press the Down button, then Right or Left to skip chapters.

It is a bit rough (as compared to DVD controls) but it does work!

I wasn't aware of this.  Thanks for the tip.

Thanks...I had no idea this could be done in this way...very helpful. A manual would also be useful...but Apple don't like manuals...

I just googled 'Apple TV chapters' and this is the first search result I received.
