TiPb Asks: Are your TV and movie apps working with iOS 5 AirPlay Mirroring?

While we haven't had time to test all of them, but off the bat we're getting mixed results with AirPlay Mirroring of iPad 2 TV and movie apps. CityTV wouldn't work -- it cited contractual obligations. CTV did work and so did Global. Crackle was buggy. We're trying more now.

Some TV and movie apps use Apple's built in media controls so AirPlay works automagically. Others... have opted out. We were kind of hoping AirPlay Mirroring would let us work around it. Maybe it will. Or maybe Hollywood will update to shut it out of more apps. We shall see.

While Apple has music and now TV available for re-download, at least in the US, apparently they've only got agreements with 4 of the 6 big studios needed to add movies to the mix.

XBMC is now available as a jailbreak app for the Apple TV (2010), iPad and iPhone 4. XBMC, for those that do not know, is a free open source media center application, that until today was only available for Linux, OSX, Windows and the original Xbox.
