Can't get video to stream to ATV2 from iPhone 4 running iOS 4.3 and latest AirVideo client (updated this morning). Get the message, "AirPlay Cannot play video on "Apple TV". Wondering if it might have something to do with running AirVideo Server 2.4.5 b5 under Lion...

Anyone successfully streaming video to the ATV2 with this combination? If so, great! How'd you do it? What did I miss in the setup?


UPDATE: Think I've figured it out...ATV2 also must be running 4.3...oh, well.
I've been using air video for streaming for some time now. Works great, even across Japan's 3G network. Recently, I contacted the developer about adding the ability to view iMovie event clips -- I've got a couple of terabytes of family movies on a couple of hard drives, but no time to make "pretty" iMovie projects out of them for export in iPhone compatible format . After a few back-and-forth e-mails to determine what could be done, the developer said that the necessary bits would be added to the next server beta. Well, I just now downloaded the most recent beta, and sure enough, I can now directly view iMovie event clips on the iPhone. Amazing! And thanks!

Note to anyone who want to do this: Events reside in their own folders inside your iMovie Events folder. An event may consist of several clips, each of which is a separate file. To view all of the clips in Air Video as if they were a single clip, navigate to the iMovie Cache folder (inside each event folder) and play the movie file called "Cache.mov".
Added the Music folder to the Air Video Server list so that I could watch some music videos stored in that folder. Later, while navigating through my music collection to that video folder via the Air Video app on my iPhone, I wondered if Air Video couldn't also stream regular music files. Nope. Doesn't list them, at any rate. Tried mp3 and AAC, but the files weren't showing up.

That certainly would be a nice capability to have, though. Music AND video streamed via Air Video. Would let me take Simplify off my phone and computer.

Would music streaming be hard to add to the app? Does Apple restrict this in some way?
Tried something the other day that I think should have worked, but it didn't. Wondering if it is possible...

Went to the in-laws the other day with a MacBook Pro loaded with several movie and tv show files, and iPhone. While there, I set up an ad hoc computer-to-computer network on the MacBook Pro using "Create Network..." feature. Next, I started the Air Video server on the MacBook Pro. Then, I navigated to Settings/network on the iPhone and selected the new network. But when I then opened the Air Video app on the iPhone, it didn't recognize the ad hoc network. Instead, it brought up a message saying that a wi-fi network was needed.

Is there some way of doing this? I'd hate to have to carry around an Airport Express base station just to accomplish this.
