Known Issues
  1. Air Media IS NOT good for video.  It is meant for simpler applications that do not require rapid moving processes.  In other words, Air Media is good for PowerPoint, Word, Keynote, Excel, etc.  Air Media is not good for Youtube, Vimeo, DVDs, video files, etc.
  2. Air Media access code is unsecured.  Therefore, it easy for others to accidentally "take over" a display.
