Hi all, every time we try to use Apple TV with Google Hangout on our Ipad Mini (with the Google hangout app) the screen goes blank the second the video chat window shows up. Using Apple Airport Wifi router.

Up to that point, Apple TV mirrors everything perfectly (other apps, videos, internet, etc). Is this a bug or some kind of device limitation that prevents Hangout on the Ipad Mini? we already downloaded all the updates both on the iPad mini and the Apple TV console. Our Apple Tv/ Hangout setup does work on the same rig when we use a Mac Mini computer.

Many thanks

Which Apple TV do you have and which version of software is it running?

I suspect the app doesn't support AirPlay but I'll try it once I get home.

Does it work OK if you just use the iPad and not Airplay it?

It does work in principle, just goes blank with this app (Google hangouts video chat)

Sorry, I don't follow what you mean.

If you don't turn on Airplay or mirroring but just start a google hangout does it work?

I can't find anywhere to say the Hangouts app supports airplay.

But I'll try it with my Apple TV later

Tried it and had a bit of a dig around. The Google Hangouts app doesn't support Airplay. It's not an iPad or AppleTV issue.
