AirPlay Implementation on the Old Apple TV is Now Complete

by tomek on April 15, 2011

Good news for old Apple TV owners (yes, there are still some lovers of the ‘original’ shiny box of joy out there):  App Dynamic, the same company that first brought AirPlay to the old Apple TV has just announced that AirPlay implementation on the 1st generation Apple TV is now complete as they have released a Remote HD update that enables AirPlay audio streaming to the old Apple TV as well as direct personal video streaming from iPhone’s camera roll. The new version also automatically installs Perian on AppleTV’s (if not installed already).

Check out this video for the instructions on how to install Remote HD Apple TV plugin.

More detailed instructions can be found here.

  • I only seem to be able to stream audio from the iphone youtube application. Is this not supposed to stream video as well?

  • Put your iPhone in AirPlane mode, wait for a few seconds, and then switch it back to normal mode. You should now be able to stream video content also. If this does not solve the issue, try restarting your router.

    This is an AirPlay issue which also happens between iPhone and second generation AppleTV.

    Do you need the RemoteHD iPhone App? Can’t you just stream video from iOS 4.3 from your iPhone to the appletv as a normal airplay device without the app?

  • Wish AirVideo would allow me to stream more than mp4, m4v, and mov videos… works to my Mac. Even with Perian avi’s and mkv’s still don’t work… thats really what I was hoping for.

    Can you save media stuff in the internal hard drive of the ATV 1st gen?

    Is there any way to stream via Airplay using the VLC player app on my iPhone and a first Gen Apple TV. Currently the audio works but the video stay on the phone
