Streaming Movies Over VPN On iPad, AirPlay Onto ATV2?
To my knowledge the ATV2 doesn't support streaming over a VPN. I would stream Netflix and what not direct to an ATV2 if it were not for this fact. The reason I require a VPN is because I am atm located in China and this is the only way (to my knowledge) to stream Netflix and other services without either being blocked completely or dealing with a super slow connection.
This is just a hypothetical, but with AirPlay coming for iPad in iOS 4.2, I'm wondering if I can stream onto my iPad with a VPN and then AirPlay it onto my ATV2 over my wireless network. Would that work at all with regards to streaming speed and the concept being plausible? Or does AirPlay simply transfer the movie information over to the ATV2 and expect it to start streaming on its own?
Also for people in similar situations, do you have any recommendations on what I can do to get Netflix or similar services here? I can watch Hulu over my VPN, but I would really love to do so on my HDTV. A PS3 would probably be my second choice if all of this doesn't work.

here's a solution
actually, you can connect to a vpn service on your computer, and share that connection to your atv2
you can use the wired connection of your computer to connect to your router, then you share the connection from your computer of the airport of your mac to your atv2. let me know if you need some help about this.
