I just realized that I do get video on youtube, but not on other apps. Is this just the way it is, or am I missing something. I can't get it to mirror.
Im trying to watch current tv shows for free, how do i do this?
You could mirroring from YouTube Apps on your idevice to the ATV. But make sure your AirPlay-enabled devices are running the latest software updates, clear the requirements and capabilities from here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4437
And as said, some apps do not provide video, so maybe you could do nothing about it.
