Is it possible to watch something on my Apple TV (from my computer) with Airplay and still have the sound come out of the headphones attached to my computer?
If it can be done, how do I do this?

I know it's a weird thing to want to do but I have my reasons.

Edit: to make it clearer I just want to stream the video from my computer to the Apple TV and keep the sound local

After activating airplay, have you tried to switch the audio back to the laptop using the sound control panel?
