Websites and Apps need enabling for Airplay, as 4.3 with full support for video airplay has only just been released I expect there are a number of sites yet to catch up. Of course some will simply choose not to support airplay at all.MP 2 x QC Xeon 3 Ghz, 12 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 10, 2011 4:32 PM (in response to walterluca1)Hello thx for sudden response, too bad I was hoping that all sites were compatible and also all the Apps.
However, can you tell me if my firmware is right that the 4.2 (2060) for the Apple TV?
There will be a site of games trailers compatible with AirPlay?
Currently Being ModeratedMar 10, 2011 4:51 PM (in response to walterluca1)Yes you are up to date.
Are you telling me or asking me about game trailers, if asking I don't know, I'm sure there are trailers out there that will work with airplay, whether they are all on one site, I couldn't tell you.MP 2 x QC Xeon 3 Ghz, 12 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

So far YouTube, Video/iPod app, Pictures, Safari (haven't tested) do. Be warned though, if you set Airplay in the iPod app on the iPad for instance, stop playing music and play a game, the game audio still goes through the Airplay, so you have to press twice on the home button and select the Airplay icon and put back to device.Power Mac, iOS 4, None

Currently Being ModeratedMar 13, 2011 5:22 PM (in response to walterluca1)Is Apple deliberately withholding from us the ability to watch any web based video from your iPad on your TV, even though the functionality is there through AirTunes? Or are the websites blocking it themselves? If you have an iPad and an AppleTV, test out the following:
1. On your iPad, go to any website with a video you'd like to watch on your TV.
2. Tap to play the video on you iPad.
3. Tap to share the video to your AppleTV via AirTunes. Except for a few select sites like Vimeo and I think You Tube, you will see that you can only share the audio to your TV, not the video.
4. Now go to vimeo.com and play a video. I'm not sure this works with every video, so try out this one (don't worry, it's rated G): http://vimeo.com/14853945 When I played it I had HD selected so HD was highlighted in blue. Tap to share to your AppleTV (you should in this case be able to share both the audio and the video).
5. Now go back to that same website you were at before, tap the same movie to play it, and then tap to share to your AppleTV over AirTunes. This time around, you'll notice that you can in fact share both the audio and the video to your TV. However, after around 15 seconds or so it kicks you off so you are no longer able to share video to your TV.
I think that's interesting. Does anyone know why that would be? My guess is that it's because once you can share anything you want from the web to your TV, you might no longer need to receive any cable broadcast, and if you watch CNN on your TV straight from the Web, CNN doesn't get any money from that, whereas if you watch over cable or satellite, they already have an arrangement whereby the cable/satellite providers pay royalties back to the various TV networks for the right to distribute their content to our televisions.
However, I think it's already possible to share anything from the web to your TV, even on an iPad, right? I believe that digital AV adapter allows you to fully mirror whatever is on your iPad to your TV already, doesn't it? So if that's the case, why would it be that I am able to trick AirTunes so that it will temporarily play any video from an iPad to a TV? It doesn't make sense to me.
This is all very interesting to me. My stepdad thinks in ten years the broadcasting landscape will have totally changed the way we watch TV. Rather than pay Comcast or DirecTV to distribute your content, you will access your content through a tablet which you would then have mirrored on your TV.
I think my stepdad's wrong. I give it two years. Two years from now I think many of us will no longer require Comcast or DirecTV for our content, and aside from sports and news, there will no longer be a schedule for when a program is on TV. Everything will be on demand. It's pretty much that way anyway for anyone who has a DVR.iMac/iPhone/AppleTV, Mac OS X (10.5.6)

I have found the answer... sadly Apple had promised AirPlay from safari to apple tv with iOS 4.3.... well it wasn't working from safari on my iPad 2 or iPhone 4... the apple tv would take sound but no video... sadly I had to modify the software on my iPhone to allow streaming using AirPlay from my iPhone 4 to my HDTV... But NOW it works.. tut tut Apple, you promised us features and didn't deliver!
