I have an Apple TV which I use with my iPod Touch 5G iOS 6.0 to Airplay pictures and videos to my HD TV. When I try to use SmugView 13.01, which I just bought, it won't work with my SmugMug pictures. I see the Airplay icon, but when I touch it, I then see another page with "iPhone" on one line and "Apple - TV.local" on another.


When I touch "Apple - TV.local" it turns blue and switches back to the previous page, where the Airplay icon is now also blue. But that's it. No picture on the TV.


What am I doing wrong?


Thank you very much

    - Troubleshooting AirPlay and AirPlay Mirroring

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Contact SmugMug/go to their support site

    - Reset all settings      

    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.

    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.

    - Restore from backup. See:                                 

    iOS: How to back up           

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    Thanks much for your reply, but your generic answers didn't help at all. Who might be able to help is some one who currently has SmugView and using it to Airplay his/her SmugMug Galleries to his/her TV.

    Your is the first post with SmubMug in the over three years IO have benn in this fourm.

    Have you contacted SmugMug?

    Have you tried the standared fixes?

    I contacted SmugMug and here's their answer:




    What you are doing seems absolutely right to me. Try restarting everything (TV + AppleTV + iPhone).





    I don't think they even read these things. I'm using an iPod Touch not an iPhone!


    I rebooted everything and nothing changed. Next, I'm going to try it on an iPhone and see what happens.

    Tried it on an iPhone. No change. Doesn't work.

    Does AirPlay work with other apps?

  • Dummkopf Level 2 (375 points)

    Airplay works fine with the Photos and Video Apps that are on the iPod Touch and iPhone.

  • lllaass Level 10 (175,862 points)

    Sure sounds like an app problem to me.

  • Dummkopf Level 2 (375 points)

    Deleted the SmugView App, on both the iPod Touch and the iPhone, and reloaded it on both and now both work. It's all black magic!

  • Dummkopf Level 2 (375 points)

    Looks like I spoke too soon. Sometimes it will connect to Aiplay but most of the times it doesn't. I deleted and reloaded many times, rebooted everything, but still the same crApp. My other two Apps, Photos and Videos, always work without a problem.


    So I wwrote Apple and here's what they said:
