Yes i know the screen is smaller in mirroring than a full HD TV, I was talking about running Netflix in this mode prior to this update, which did go full screen as soon as launched. My question was is there any difference between that and the new airplay other than convenience of one less step?
Exactly, obviously this is all because Apple added the ability to use another ATV that wasn't yours and Netflix just added a quicker way to do this within their app avoiding the need to mirror. It's slicker and faster.
I get your point. Mirroring isn't required now though maybe there is a slight quality difference with a dedicated airplay stream? Anyone here know if there is a technical difference between watching something using mirroring and using the airplay button within an app?
