I just bought an Aplle TV, basically I want to see the sreen of my computer on the TV, I want to watch DVDs and watch them on tv,
The new version of OS X Mountain Lion will allow you airplay your mac's screen to your tv via apple tv, see this http://www.apple.com/osx/whats-new/
This does not mean that the video content of the DVD window will be streamed, in much the same way you cannot take a screen shot of the DVD player window under Mountain Lion. It is a copyright issue.
Has anyone tested this yet?
I tried it and it plays audio but the screen is a covered with white and grey boxes. So airplay mirroring wont let you play a factory copyrighted DVD on your tv.
So the obvious question is.....

Will it let you watch an unprotected DVD eg your own.
Looks like the answer is no.
I'm assuming that ML just gives dummy video to Airplay and Airparrot (which is what I tested with).
Someone care to try with VLC etc?
Tried with VLC and it worked.
Thought it would.
So if somebody wants to copy their DVD library they may perhaps be able to use airplay mirroring in this fashion. Or they can play their DRM content from itunes beautifully.

Well I guess we need neither ML or Airparrot for that!
