    There are a few obvious restrictions, but for small enough vids just mail the clip and play it through the mail app and click the airplay device button.

    I hope they get around to enabling this feature, not quite sure why its not there from the beginning?

    Any ideas or theories why this does not just work right out of the gate?

    I had not seen any mention of doing it this way as a quick way to get our little unedited vids to our shinny new boxes.

    HTH someone :)

    Edit: ya sorry this is wrong, I was thinking about trying to find ways around waiting for a youtube vid to upload, and this occurred to me and when I saw the airplay button I thought eureka!

    But I called home to have some one try it and its a nogo as the next post replied :(

    I tried this on my iP4 with a 3.8 mb video but it only streamed the sound?
