I'm not sure why the studios would block this..... I can stream my iTunes content from my Mac to my Apple TV, so I'm not sure where the difference would be. What I would like to do is stream videos/pictures I take with my iPhone directly to my Mac......I think they got pressure from the studios not to do this.
Keep in my mind you can currently get Hulu free on your computer or Hulu+ for your ipad. The difference is with hulu+ you get less content and pay more, why? They believe that your viewing experience is very different on your TV vs your computer vs mobile device.
Cool. And yeah, mirroring to the Mac is the Holy Grail for me right now. I have still not seen a good solution for it, though I have seen Erica Sadun and others t TUAW hacking away at it with add-on hardware and some funky stuff and still not sounding like a real, effective option.Patrick, I downloaded Air Server for my Mac and it does indeed let you stream audio and video from your iPhone to the MAC....Thanks for the suggestion. The only thing it will not do yet is mirroring.
One thing I noticed is that you need to open Quicktime on the Mac first, otherwise it may fail to play videos.
I believe the iPhone only needs to be jailbroken if you want to stream content from the Mac to the iPhone. But I'm using my Plex media server for that type of streaming.
