Apple AirPlay hacked use AirVideoEnabler to stream from all apps to your AppleTV
Apple recently released their iOS 4.2 update, and it came along with some great features. One of those features was AirPlay, which allows the user to stream videos from their device to an Apple TV connected television. Unfortunately, it only worked with Apple-approved apps, which meant no YouTube, or VLC.
A developer by the name of Zone-MR’s whipped up a new hack to allow you to transmit video through ALL apps including Safari. That means you can stream them from anything from Safari to YouTube, or VLC. Considering the speed and relative ease with which Zone-MR developed this code, Apple may be on their way to making AirPlay open on future iOS updates (iOS 4.3, possibly?).
Below is a video including both the way for you to get this hack working for yourself as well as a video showing it working in the wild. You can download the hack over at this Cydia repository http://cydia.zone-mr.net.
