I have a MacBook Air mid-2012 with recently purchased Apple TV, and I don't get the Airplay icon on my menu bar. I'm able to use AirPlay from iTunes on the computer, but not for other applications. Any suggestions?         

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    It is your OS, you show OS X 10.7.5 and you need OS X 10.8 or newer Mountain Lion which you need to purchase from the app store.

    I have the latest OS X El Capitan, i have been trying to connect my macbook air to my apple tv but it just can't seem to pick it up at all via wireless. When i go into my display presences at the bottom of the screen it will show air play then the off option, however it does not give me the option of the apple tv. i do have them both connected to the correct Wifi but i don't know where else to go or what else to do.

    If someone could help me that would be great!



    Thank you!
