Airplay in Zattoo

The Zattoo app for ipad has the airplay function, but when I select my apple tv gen 1, the message “video not recognized” is shown on tv. Any idea? Air play works on other apps: video, youtube,…


I have the same problem. Is there any solution?


Hi, I just bought atFlash to use this, but it does not work with my AppleTV as well. Can atvFlash Support take care of the problem?


Best, Gero

I believe the only way to get airplay to work on ATV1, is to install Remote HD on your ATV1, then you have to buy the Remote HD app for the iPhone/ipod/ipad. From there you can select your ATV1 from the airplay device list.

I have it installed and I can select the ATV 1 in the airplay list. It will then show on my iPad that the video is played on the ATV, but there it says “can not be played because the format is not recognised”.

Unfortunately this is not a solution but only a workaround to get some things to stream onto the ATV1 because realistically the ATV wasn’t designed to do this. It’s 5 year old technology trying to attempt a modern day trick. This is the best you can hope for I’m afraid.

I think it’s a problem with the video format and for me it’s a bug

I have the same problem with some catch up tv app.

As I said, this isn’t a complete solution as its old technology trying to attempt a modern day task. Not really a bug, just an inability to cope.

Thanks for the post :). Zattoo Switzerland is awesome because it offers almost any UK channel such us BBC. For those who can’t access it in your country, you can use UnoTelly as I do to get around the geo block.
