How do i get air play to work from my macbook to apple tv? It does work with some programs like itunes but I can't get it to work with safari.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

    turn on home sharing on your itunes (advance tab) and enter your password...


    then, enable home sharing on your apple tv...



    ...when you play something (on itunes for example) and want it on your tv just make sure the lower right corner of itunes has the correct connection/output (ex speakers)...



    that's the gist of it...

    apple tv does not work in safari. there is no web browsing capabilities on the apple tv..


    however what you are probably referring to is mirroring? iPad 2 and iPhone 4s have mirroring capabilities, so what you have on the screen is exactly what would appear in the apple tv..


    on ipad for example...ignore the settings page. Instead, go to the iPod controls. Double-press your home button to see the multitasking bar, showing all your recent apps. Swipe your finger from right to left for the mirroring icon; you'll see the AirPlay icon. Tap on that, select your Apple TV and toggle the mirror button to 'on'.
