    I was all of the sudden thinking of something really weird that could work after remembering how Steve was saying that the MacBook Air was "built for the wireless world". The idea was wireless video out. Now by now I know you're thinking that its such a stupid idea and will never work. You're also probably wondering why I posted this in this section. Well, I'll explain:

    I was thinking that if we can somehow get video out in App Store applications that we can develop an application that uses Apple's integrated Screen Share function to receive video from a Mac via Wi-Fi and then we plug an AV Cable into the iPod and TV or other receiving device and the iPod outputs the received stream from the Mac to the TV. I know that audio works on Screen Share however, I'm not sure if it works good enough to output in a good enough quality for movies and videos as I've only used it over the internet with someone else. The only problem I see here is getting AV Out working on an app other than MobileMusicPlayer.app. If nobody has figured out how to use Screen Share over Bonjour without a Mac yet than we can still use VNC as it is also included in Screen Share. Can anybody comment about this?

    Wow, someone actually understood what I was trying to say! Usually that never happens. Well yeah, thats what I mean. It would be TOTALLY wireless. Now some people with smaller TVs like in my sister's room where as the screen isn't much bigger, this wouldn't be oh so useful however, for people who have large 42 inch LCD flat screens like I have in my room its VERY useful. It would be great to show stuff like pics and videos of a vacation to family on a large TV rather than having everybody crowded around you and your laptop right?

    Do you think I should go to Apple with this idea and if they like it, get it done more quickly or try and start the project here?

    Post your ideas in the application ideas forum, not here. This forum is for help and guidance on the toolchain and sdk.

    Obiously your app request would require Wi-Fi, so why not use Air Sharing and add videos to it's folder and play them on iPod or plug to TV and play there.
    I've tried it and it works

    some companies are working on wireless video like

    your cable box here plugs into this wireless streaming box


    then the wireless reciever gets mounted+connected to your tv....

    but it would be nice to see it built into an ipod...
