    I have a 'cord thing' that came with a little video player that I have that let's me connect it to the tv, and I gave it a try with my iPad. It only worked for the audio, even when I tried the 'tvout' option in one of the apps I have that plays videos.

    What sort of accessories or apps would I need to get this to work properly?

    I think apple tv might work with the airplay feature but I am not 100 percent sure. Its also 99 bucks so thats a big downside.

    I don't want to spend that much money to put a video on my computer to my iPad and take to my moms to watch on her tv.


    If by compost puts you mean the yellow, red, and white plugs, that's what it has.

    I shall go to the links you posted! Thanks :3

    Yes, the composite adapter is what you want then. Beware, they are a bit expensive. There are other brands available that should do the same thing for less $$$, but I have not tried them. Like this one from Amazon:

    Amazon basics AV cable

    Note that even $3 cables like the one at will work if and only if you jailbreak and install Resupported 4.


    Is that all it has - that is, no red/green/blue plugs or, even better, HDMI or VGA sockets? The two latter would be the best in every respect: the cheapest cable, the best quality, AirPlay & mirroring etc.
