Nice try, but doesn't work, won't stream video content from any website. Good if you have the file on your mac, but that's what apple TV does without it....at least it's was free

Erica Sadun rocks for making my Apple TV 10X more useful -- now if we could only push YouTube URLs to the ATV, I would be very happy... A little more tweaking of this app and it will be really great, once some glitches are ironed out. Now we just need AirPlay export from Flash videos to ATV...

Just use YouTube5 Safari extension http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/35606/youtube5-safari-extension

With it you will be able to copy the link to the 720p version of a YouTube video, then send it to the AppleTV with Airflick.


Jerome71: how do you find the link to the 720p version after installing YouTube5?


Estigma. Just press the "i" icon on the upper right of the youtube video you are watching and you can access the different resolutions available.

I actually stopped using YouTube5 and now use only ClicktoFlash, downloadable here http://hoyois.github.com/safariextensions/clicktoplugin/
