I tested the iPad at my college today, and found that the only apps that connect and display (with the VGA connector) on the projector are the Keynote App and the Youtube app.
There are a couple of other posts from teachers on the same subject - sadly this is as advertised.
Does anyone know if there is anything in the works (ro some type of work-around) to allow movies and TV shows on the projector;
Only Apple know - all else is speculation and rumour, as Apple never release such information. Its pretty unlikely for DRM reasons though - otherwise peopel could be downloading HD content and using the iPad in place of an authorised HD player. But you never know ....
Have you checked out Expedition-The VGA out browser for the iPad? You can use it display a web browser on an external display (ie Projector, LCD, TV). Great if you have to do a presentation and need to show a web page or you can even use for Google Apps presentations.
It also has the capability to show Html5 video on the external display.
Here's a link to a video of it in action
And here it is in the AppStore
It's a frustration.
Send feedback here:
I see no real reason they could not implement full mirroring in a future OS version, and I assume this was what happening when the device was announce and playing back on screen in use.
Currently only software enabled apps that use the relevant programming interfaces can use video out. I'd far rather a global setting to allow it for any app and home page interactions, or disable as appropriate.
