Airplay can only work with those files that can be added to iTunes including MP4, MOV, and M4V. Any format iTunes cannot support like AVI, MKV, WMV, DivX, XviD, MPEG, and FLV video format, Airplay will not steam. However, You can easily convert any media into the format of your choice with ifunia free video converter

Okay, I am not a genius at all this stuff so still a little confused. I have an iphone 3 currently and a MacBook Pro. I want to be able to play the movies on both on my TV so what do I need to make that happen. Do I have to have some special device or software to make it happen?

Airplayer doesn't work for me. I downloaded it, opened it, and got nothing.
on my iPhone, I saw that now airplay works, and gives me the choice to play youtube videos on my home iMac, but nothing actually played on the iMac. Not to mention, iPod music/movies from my iPhone don't work either. The AirPlay option doesn't show up.
Anyone else have that problem??

Oh, and don't get me started on aTV Flash installation on my "old generation" Apple TV! I had to do a system restore after the aTV Flash totally screwed up my Apple TV. It installed properly at first, and the new "aTV Flash" items showed up on the home menu on my Apple TV. But then out of the blue, the screen went black, and I couldn't see anything. A hard reset on the Apple TV showed me the little "start up Apple TV video", but then NOTHING! BLACK SCREEN.
I'm through screwing with these 3rd party apps!

Also worth mentioning: some free but still kinda experimental software from Erica Sadun. AirFlick lets your Mac be either an AirPlayer server or client. h t t p : / / ericasadun.com/ftp/AirPlay/
