    Hey guys I'm trying to get airplay to work with avplayer hd I was under the impression that I could play my .avi movies via apple tv with it but for some reason all I seem to be getting is audio output no video whatsoever.. Anyone have any ideas or is it just that avplayerhd just does not support playing .avi via airplay just mp4?

    I don't believe AirPlay can work with any video format except .m4v...at least not in my experience...

    Use AirVideo and play any video format via airplay on your aTV. 40gb MKV file plays without any problem ;) + subtitles.

    Good luck.

    That's been the only work around I've found so far and it really sucks cause I hate using air video and live conversion its choppy especially while streaming higher quality video. The only solution is iOS 5 mirroring and hopefully the devs of all of these 3rd party video player apps will update for 16:9 output while air playing video.

    I was trying to do the same but same result only audio output no video. This really sucks. I was hoping the devs of AVPlayer HD would have updated their app to support this. Any other solutions? Not a big fan of live conversion either.
