    The only ones I know of are:

    Vevo
    Vevo HD
    Air Video

    I've gotten Vevo to work fine but Air Video has been iffy.

    I have Air Video as well and wasn't able to get both audio and video to play until I noticed on the app that you need a newer beta version of the Air Video Server. Installed the beta server and had both audio and video playing on my :apple:TV2 via Air Video. Granted it doesn't make much sense to go this route when at home but for someone who has a bunch of media in a format unplayable by the :apple:TV, this would be extremely handy.

    Also had YouTube playing, FWIW.

    Air Video seems so far to be exactly what I was hoping for!

    (Now if we could just get those pesky Hulus, amazon VODs to work)

    Flixster was just updated with airplay support. It works but the quality is pretty bad when streaming from my iPhone.

    Rhapsody has had airplay support for a few months now.

    Airplay doesn't work on most web sites

    Guess l I had unrealistic expcectations about what the new airplay would bring. I just assumed all my favorite web sites' like the ny times, huff post, msnbc would just automagically start streaming to the apple tv. But seems tht is not the case. Does each web site publisher have to enable AirPlay on their web site? This is almost as frustrting as all those flash enabled sites not working.

    start sending out emails to your favorite sights, see if they can enable it.

    I was able to briefly get Slingplayer to play on my television (AppleTV 2)through my iPhone 4. When I tried another time it would only recognize the audio. This is exciting because it means that ATV2 can act as a Slingcatcher if you have your phone on you...

    Crunchyroll app seems to work with Airplay fine.

    Vevo didn't work for me, just streams audio.

    I did find something notable.

    If you are using Airplay video and close it, then go to an app that doesn't yet support Airplay and play the video, it automatically sends it to AppleTV2 since the last thing you did was have a video using Airplay.

    Here's some sites that stream HTML5, which combined with Dodson's plugin can stream to your ATV2.

    This seems to work in many of the sites/videos that I tested. :D

    And YES, you can stream pron as well.

    Sure no prob.

    Go to the link I posted.

    If you have Safari drag the 'blue marklet' to your bookmark bar. If you don't have Safari find a way to bookmark it. Rename it in order to make it shorter.

    Once that's saved in your bookmarks, use MobileMe to sync with your idevice. If you don't have mobileme I can't help you much there. You'll need to save the bookmark in your mobile Safari somehow (sorry).

    When you have it saved go to a site that supports HTML5, click on the bookmark (I named mine 'airplay') and you should see the page reload and the video go black for a second. When you click play, you should see the option to play video on AppleTv. At times it won't play, so you have to try again. There's a trick to some sites, so you have to play with this depending on the site.

    I do gotta warn that the quality at times aint the best at times. But it's def watchable, depending on what you wanna watch.

    Can only get the audio working when I try to airplay Slingplayer from my iphone 4. Does anyone know when we'll be able to see the video as well?
