Stream from iPad to tv
Is there a way to stream videos to my tv from my iPad without cables?
I have a stock iPad (no jailbreak). Looking to be able to send videos like DVDs that I put on my iPad with handbrake to my tv. Is it possible? I have a ps3 can it be done with that or do i need something else?
I have been looking at the apple tv but so far it looks to me that with apple tv you can only stream content from iTunes.
Probably not. How does your TV get it's other content?
I purchase the component kit and any video I play on the iPad goes out the cable and into my DVD/VCR, and from there to the TV. Sixty bucks less that the Apple TV.
My tv gets it's content from directv and a ps3
"I have been looking at the apple tv but so far it looks to me that with apple tv you can only stream content from iTunes."
This is correct. I have a PS3 as well and have not heard of way to do what you are describing.
Use the Airplay button
Any app that has the Airplay button can stream audio and/or video to your Apple TV. Not all the apps have it (I don't have a list of those that do), but the YouTube app, for example, has it. The Photos app also has it and can stream your photos as a slideshow on your TV. The Airplay button looks like this:
Wonder why the video app that came with the iPad dosnt have airplay? I would rather stream video to my tv then pictures.
So I guess most of us will have to wait for an app that would stream anything we wanted from or iPad to our tv?
Thanks for the info
Actually, the 'Video' app does have Airplay, I guess I wasn't clear. Here's a demo of it on Apple:
Apple - iPad - AirPlay
I updated my iPad software last month, but I do not see the airplay icon/ button on video play back nor on my photos! Is there something I need to do to activate it?
You need to get what is called a Second Generation AppleTV.
I do not believe that you need your iTunes on or even your computer on. I have had my iMac OFF and am able to still watch my iPad movies on my TV.
Can you explain that to me? What I'm saying is that the airplay icon doesn't show up on my iPad anywhere. Will the second generation apple tv work with my iPad if I can't seem tobturn airplay at all?
