SmugMug Photos on AppleTV
I would love to see SmugMug integrate photo streaming with Apple TV like Flickr and Mobile Me
Stream Smugmug photos to Apple TV
Now with iOS 4.2 and the new AppleTV, it is possible to "beam" photos from the iPhone and iPad photo album to a TV directly.
Please add the AirPlay functionality to the Smugmug iPad app so we do not have to download the photos first, switch to the photo viewer, and then view them via AirPlay.

SmugMug Guru's. I would take most of these comments/recommendations and take them up a notch. I feel like 3rd part Apps are fine - but rarely have the polish they could have if you put the time and energy into them yourself. Please create mobile AND tablet versions of a SmugMug App for photos and video. Once these are done simply add the few lines of code to make them ChromeCast compliant. Next, please make an official Roku App. An AppleTV App would be awesome too - however, if the native App for mobile and tablet are working well then we can always AirPlay. And while you're at it - you might check into Xbox360/XboxOne/PS4 Apps! Absolutely LOVE your platform - just keep moving forward!

Please add chromecast ability as soon as Google opens it up to everyone, which should be very soon.
This is probably an Apple limitation than a SmugMug one. Roku lets anyone create a channel so you see 3rd party SmugMug channel on there. Apple TV only lets Apple approved channels so I doubt you'll see anything until they open it up like they've done with the Apple Apps and Mac Apps stores.

Just add Airplay and slideshow functionality to the app for iPhone/iPad and that is enough. And totally under the control of SmugMug (aside from Apple's blessing to have the app in the AppStore). Getting a SmugMug app on the AppleTV list of apps may be a bridge to far but this would work immediately.

It's absolutely ridiculous that my SmugMug images cannot be viewed on my AppleTV interface. PLEASE SMUGMUG, make it so! It's a total drag to have to reload my Smugmug photos to iPhoto!

please add apple tv support - they have flikr available but no smuggy.

I agree that an Apple TV app for SmugMug is needed and the best idea. At the moment SmugView app works well for me w/ airplay.
I definitely would like to see this capability. Even checked if there is a simple sync between SM and Flckr (couldn't find one).
me too. i know it's an Apple thing. maybe I can do a workaround...
Would love to see smugmug integrate with Apple TV
Me too please, so annoying to see the Flickr logo but no SM access via my Apple TV.
Please add Apple TV integration to/with SmugMug as is done with Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo et. al.
please add this feature so can add album to apple tv screensaver!
Smug is with the times elsewhere.... why not here?? Let's get this small viewer feature added to smug ipad app or even Smug Viewer???
OK - What can we do to make this happen? Do we need to push SM or Apple or both?
SmugMug - please comment on this thread.
Yeah, Roku has an app already for this. Apple TV would be even better
Could be quite easy: use SmugWallet to enable a very easy display of slide shows on iPhone or iPad. and this slide show is easily mirrored via atv to the tv screen
Disappointed that I cannot connect to smugmug through apple tv
Even though I would like to see this feature in the smugmug app..
but i am wondering if its even possible to enable airplay for photos based app. I have searched online and read this apple link about airplay http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/AudioVideo/Conceptual/AirPlayGuide/Introduction/Introduction.html
but it only talks about 'airplay'ing audio or video media and not photos. although there's one app which stands as an exception - Apple's own Photos app which supports Airplay.
there's no other photos app in the market that supports airplay - is there some restriction from apple that does not allow regular photos apps to be airplay compatible ?
if someone (smugmug insider like Don McAskill etc.) might shed light on this based on their past research about this issue - i would really appreciate it..
