Trying to beam a YouTube video to the big screen. The iPhone played it just nicely, but it would not transfer to Apple TV. This happens a lot with video. Sometimes I get the audio across, but the video keeps playing on the iPhone. This time, no workie at all. And persistant.


Well, we have Sonos!

Is MobileMe an other one...?

I couldn't care less. As with Apple TV.

Axel, Sonos won't let me "beam" a video to the big screen.

Had a nice AirPlay experience at the weekend. MacBook was busy so i used the iPad for buying a movie from the iTunes store and played it with AirPlay on AppleTV. No hazzle. It jused worked.

@vowe: right, I was too quick with my comment - just read "AirPlay" and thought about music streaming. For video I own a Dreambox :-) - no hassle with DRM whatsoever.

And no AirPlay.
