AirVideoEnabler apple tv 2g hack AirVideoEnabler Allows AirPlay Video Streaming from Any AppIt’s been a few days since this hack came out, but there is a chance you’ve missed it focused on your Thanksgiving and Black Friday activities: a jailbreak app called AirVideoEnabler can push out video from any iOS app (including Safari) to the Apple TV 2G via AirPlay. Developed by TUAW commenter Zone-MR, the app runs on every jailbroken iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with iOS 4.2 (or greater) installed and can be downloaded from Cydia for free. According to Lifehacker, you may need to restart your iOS device for the hack to work, but then you can stream supported video (meaning most MPEG4/H.264 files) from any app that supports video out. Users report that thanks to AirVideoEnabler they were also able to stream live TV to the Apple TV via AirPlay.

groovy apple tv 2g Groovy Brings Grooveshark to Your Apple TVGroovy, an unofficial Grooveshark client for the Apple TV 2G, has finally arrived. Grooveshark is an online music search engine, music streaming service and music recommendation web software application, allowing users to search for, stream, and upload music free of charge that can be played immediately or added to a playlist. Groovy aims to bring the Grooveshark to your living room via the new Apple TV. The developers admit that the current feature list is not long  (simple search and player functionality) but they say they are working hard on the next version with much more functionality (e.g. Grooveshark login, better search result, better player view). They also promised to release the source code in the near future. Go to the Groovy website for the instructions on how to install this new plugin on your freshly jailbroken atv.

plex apple tv 2g How to Install Plex on Apple TV 2G

UPDATE: Plex client for Apple TV 2 has been updated to version 0.10. Read here how to get and install it.

This is just awesome: iOS hacker quiqueck made it to install Plex on the jailbroken Apple TV 2. Based on the open-source XBMC, Plex now works as a client for your ATV and lets you stream nearly any kind of video from your server (read your Mac). Plex for ATV2 is just a “proof of concept” so it is still buggy, tricky to install and limited to video playback (no music files, no images, no App-Management) but anyway, this is looking really good for the future of Apple TV2 applications (after the Weather app, this is the second iOS app that works on the new Apple TV).

Here are the detailed instructions given by quiqueck and a step-by-step video tutorial brought to you by iphoneblogr.com

He discovered that “if you give an app a UIDeviceFamily of 3 it will install on it when signed.” Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean we can run our apps on the new atv right now: according to Steven, “while you can install apps after modifying its type, you just can’t launch them – there’s no built-in facility to do that.” Someone has to find out how to do this but we don’t expect it will take long.
