    Has anyone tried to stream games from espn3 using AirFlick? What about streaming from any other sites?

    I did this with Hulu (the free website), and it works "ok", with the following drawbacks:

    -You have to use the "screencasting" trick in conjunction with AirFlick, which means you are just mirroring your computer's screen on your apple tv. Instructions are here:

    -As far as I can tell, you can screencast the video from your mac, but not the Audio, making this somewhat useless at the moment for watching internet video.

    -The frame rate is something less than 30 fps, so the video looks choppy.

    -the screencast is delayed about 15 seconds or so compared to what is happening on your mac's screen.
